By the numbers: A brief comparison of Alcohol Beverage Control Board numbers

The town of Mooresville allocates 12.5 percent of its revenues from its Alcohol Beverage Control Board to Iredell County for school purposes, 25 percent to the Mooresville General Fund for public parks and recreation and 27.5 directly to the Mooresville School Board.

After giving the state-mandated 7 percent to substance abuse education and 5 percent to law enforcement, Mecklenburg County allocates 47.5 percent of the remainder to the general funds of both Mecklenburg County and the City of Charlotte, some of which is returned to municipalities, and 5 percent to the Charlotte Mecklenburg Library.
