Financial Update
Financial Statements/Budget Reconciliation June 30, 2019 Financial Statements are unaudited, but show we have expended 33% of our $35.9 million FY2019 Operating Budget and collected 34% of budgeted revenues for all funds. To view the June Financial Statements click HERE .

The FY2018 Financial Statement audit work has concluded and the final document can be viewed or downloaded HERE. The City received a clean or unmodified opinion on the 2018 Financial Statements; the financial statements for the prior year are presented fairly and in respect to the financial position and are in conformance with GAAP.
Budget Update You will find a budget reconciliation as of June 30, 2019 HERE. Overall we began the year in most of the funds with better cash and equivalent balances than estimated.
  • General Fund - previous year expenditures, mostly PERSONNEL due to unexpected vacancies, contributed to the fund beginning the year with 21% more than estimated.
  • CIT Fund - began the year with 12% less due to previous year's revenues coming in slightly less.
  • Transportation Fund - began the year with 9% more due to capital projects not completed, of which were carried over to FY2019 for completion.
  • Water Fund - began the year with 1% less due to previous year's revenues coming in slightly lower than estimated.
  • Sewer Fund - bagan the year with 1% more due to previous year's expenditures coming in lower than estimated.
  • Ambulance Fund - began the year with 24% due to the previous year's expenditures coming in lower than expected.
  • LCF Fund - began the year with a considerable amount, which was due in full to the timing and carryover of a grant project to be completed in the current year.
  • Grand Glaize Fund - began the year with nearly 4% more due to previous year's expenditures coming in lower than estimated.

The FY2019 Mid-Year Report shows revenue and expenditures through June 30, 2019 and estimated year-end FY2019 based on current known project status and any amendments to date. Significant changes from FY2019 Budget will be seen in the Transportation Fund and the LCF Fund. FY2019 expenditures in both funds are estimated to be significantly less due to capital projects that will not be completed due to denied grant funding.

All reserve balances for all applicable funds are on track per the FY2019 Budget and the Reserve Policy.

The full FY2019 Operating Budget can be found at

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.

Comparison to Missouri State Sales Tax: The State of Missouri is on a July - June fiscal year and year-ending June 30, 2019, the State reported 1.1% over the previous year. The City is a calendar year fiscal year, but to compare with the State, July 2018 - June 2019, we were 1.0% over the previous year for the same time period.
