Review of Accounts Payable.
Discussion of various items on the list with satisfactory answers to all questions.
Payables Approved by the Finance Committee for submission to Council.
Review of November Financial Statements.
Discussed various items and received satisfactory answers to all questions
Conclusion of Financial Statement review is that overall we are showing positive comparisons of actual to budget. This as in previous months is primarily due to RITA revenues being in excess of the YTD budget. It appears that the surplus in the General Fund for the entire year will approximate $100,000 to $150,000. In addition, the Finance Committee recommends that $150,000 be transferred to a Capital Equipment and Major Maintenance Fund that will be established by Ordinance.
Discussion of various budget items most significant being the need to reduce RITA revenues to $860,000 in anticipation of a weak economy in 2009. A draft of the final 2009 budget was reviewed with some minor adjustments. The budget with the minor modifications was approved and will be submitted to council for approval at the December meeting. A general fund surplus of 40,000 to $50,000 is anticipated in 2009.
