Financial Update
Financial Statements/Budget Reconciliation October 31, 2019 Financial Statements are unaudited, but show we have expended 59.3% of our $35.9 million FY2019 Operating Budget and collected 66.6% of budgeted revenues for all funds.

The FY2018 Financial Statement audit work has concluded. 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.
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.

November 2019 Sales Tax receipts are $50,268 (1.2%) more than 2018 receipts for the same period and $85,981 (1.9%) less that projected in the FY2019 Budget. 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 8.3% for the same period vs. the previous year, but it is estimated that State sales tax receipts will level out at approximately 3% growth at year-end, June 2020.* *Source: The Moody Report LLC, August 2019 General Revenue Update.
