Financial Update
Financial Statements/Budget Reconciliation December 31, 2019 Financial Statements are unaudited, but show we expended 71.94% of our $35.9 million FY2019 Operating Budget and collected 78.7% 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 will begin soon with an estimated completion to be June 2020.
Sales Tax Revenue represents a large portion of the City's revenue source, 47% projected in the FY2020 overall budget. Fees & Service Charges represent 30% of projected revenue in the FY2020 overall budget. Although used for only on-time expenditures, Grants & Reimbursements represent 17% of incoming revenues in FY2020; Other Income representing 6%.

JANUARY 2020 Sales Tax receipts are $9,628 (2.4%) less than 2019 receipts for the same period and $19,428 (4.7%) less that projected in the FY2020 Budget. This is the first collection month for the new budget year as 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 fiscal year, was <0.8%> less from the previous period. As of November 2019, the State was up 5.8% over their previous year. *Source: The Moody Report LLC, November 2019 General Revenue Update.
