Last year that number was about $966,000.  Data provided as far back as 2006 showed no year that met those numbers.  At the end of November, collections were at about $931,000. 

December collections have been at least $70,000 for the past two years.  The Statesville Convention and Visitors Bureau is funded by hotel occupancy tax money.
