Review of Accounts Payable.
Discussion of various items on the list with satisfactory answers to all questions other than two invoices. Joe Maurer to follow up on.
Payables Approved subject to satisfactory answers to the two exceptions.
Review of October 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. Because of the nature of the revenues and the manner in which the revenues are received we can not conclude that this trend will be maintained for the entire year. It appears that the surplus in the General Fund for the entire year will approximate $50,000 to $100,000.
Discussion of various budget items most significant being the need to reduce RITA revenues from the preliminary number of $936,000. Finance committee anticipates that with some belt tightening we can still balance the budget. Joe and Bernice to meet and work out a second draft based on various modifications. Target is to have a final budget for the December Council Meeting.
