Financial Update
Financial Statements/Budget Reconciliation December 31, 2018 Financial Statements are unaudited, but show we expended 84.5% of our $28.5 million FY2018 Operating Budget and collected 100.8% of budgeted revenues for all funds. To view the December Financial Statements click HERE .

FY2019 BUDGET: The FY2019 Operating Budget was adopted in December and represents a spending plan for all funds of $35,409,182.

The FY2019 Operating Budget is divided into numerous departments and fund budgets, allocating resources and depicts the accounting details, the revenue and expenditures, of each department and fund. Another useful way to view the budget is by depicting the specifics not by accounting details but rather by category of sources and uses of revenue, for example, transportation, parks and recreation, or by public safety as a function of service to the community.

The following is an aggregate synopsis by function of the FY2019 Governmental and Enterprise Funds as budgeted to further show where the City’s money comes from and where the City spends money. The Component Units (TIF Funds) and transfers between the other funds are excluded to accurately depict total sources and uses of revenue. TIF Fund revenues are flowed through the Governmental Funds to each specific TIF Fund. Transfers between funds represent the movement of money from one fund to another fund for subsidy purposes for specific expenditures, within legal perimeters.
The full FY2019 Operating Budget can be found at . Under the Administrative Summary within the document, you will find my full Budget Message outlining this year's operating budget along with other details pertaining to the budget.

Sales Tax Revenue represents a large portion of the City's revenue source, 41% projected in the FY2019 overall budget. Fees & Service Charges represent 25% of projected revenue in the FY2019 overall budget. Although used for only on-time expenditures, Grants & Reimbursements represent 31% of incoming revenues in FY2019. This is an increase from only 4% in FY2018.

J anuary 2019 Sales Tax receipts, our first month of receipts for FY2019, are $58,606 (17.0%) more than 2018 receipts for the same period and $2,439 (0.6%) more that projected in the FY2019 Budget. Our fiscal year is a calendar year; January - December. View the latest Sales Tax Report HERE .
