Town of Cross Roads citizens are encouraged to spend locally whenever possible. Each taxable purchase spent locally brings 2% of that purchase back to the town. The revenue is used for road improvements, safety improvements, park improvements, funding for police, fire, and ambulance services, local area library support, and unique citizen services such as CareFlite.
Spending locally also supports those businesses and local owners. For all of your online purchases it is important to ensure Cross Roads is listed as your actual shipping address, which ensures the appropriate tax is calculated and distributed back to the Town.
