Financial Update
Financial Statements/Budget Reconciliation November 30, 2019 Financial Statements are unaudited, but show we have expended 65.1% of our $35.9 million FY2019 Operating Budget and collected 71.7% of budgeted revenues for all funds.

The FY2018 Financial Statement audit work was completed in June 2019. 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. FY2019 audit is expected to be completed early summer in 2020.
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.

December 2019 Sales Tax receipts are $38,379 (0.8%) more than 2018 receipts for the same period and $95,728 (2.0%) less that projected in the FY2019 Budget. This concludes our collections for FY2019; total collected $4,804,272. Our fiscal year is a calendar year; January - December.

Comparison to Missouri State Sales Tax: The State of Missouri is on a July - June fiscal year where as the City is a calendar year fiscal year. For comparison purposes, the City's sales tax collection for the same period as the State's collection period, was <0.4%> less from the previous year. The State is up 5.8% for the same period vs. the previous year. *Source: The Moody Report LLC, November 2019 General Revenue Update.
FY2020 Budget
F Y2020 total expenditures adopted on December 19, 2019, for all funds is $29,458,473 , as set forth in the FY2020 Budget Draft #3. A final budget document will be completed within the next few weeks with additional supplements to draft #3.

The following is a synopsis by function of the FY2020 Governmental and Enterprise Funds as budgeted to show where the City's money comes from and where the City spends money. The Component Units (TIF Funds) and transfers between funds are excluded to accurately depict total sources and uses of revenue.

Sales Tax and Fees and Service Charges are the two significant sources of revenue for the City on a reoccurring basis. FY2020 budgeted revenues represents 47% from Sales Taxes and 30% from total Fees and Service Charges. FY2020 represents relatively no change in total dollar from the FY2019 budget for said revenue sources.

The most signification fluctuation from FY2019 budget vs. the FY2020, both in total dollar and percentage, is represented in the Grants and Reimbursement revenue source. Grants and reimbursements are directly related to specific one-time operating capital or capital expansion projects and are not considered ongoing revenue. FY2020 budget supports nearly $4.6 million in grants and reimbursements specifically allocated to one-time projects; down approximately 53% from last year.

Capital expenditures outlined in the FY2020 budget total nearly $7.4 million. Nearly 80% of that is appropriated for the lease-purchase of the 911 Communication Center and Police Department radio console and equipment, Mace Road Reconstruction Phase II, and the Lee C Fine Airport Apron Reconstruction Project. Approximately $769,000 in projects were reallocated in FY2020 from the FY2019 budget for completion.
