Review of November Financial Statements

The Financial Statement review indicates that revenues are generally in excess of budgeted amounts. Revenues are below last years actual revenues primarily due to lower RITA receipts and reduced interest income. Actual expenses for the first eleven months were less than budgeted amounts. Barring any unforeseen circumstances we are anticipating a surplus in the range of $150,000.
