Notes

  1. Revenue from the Federal Government:  The City received $1.2 million budgeted in FY 2011 for the Build America Bonds subsidy as compared to $0.4 million in FY 2010. The associated interested expense is included in debt service.  Also, federal prisoner per diem revenue is higher.
  2. Licenses and Permits: The category decrease is due to the transfer of approximately $3.8 million budgeted for new construction fees from the General Fund to a special revenue account beginning July 1, 2010, where they will be used to cover the cost of Code Enforcement’s New Construction Division, which is now self-financed from these permit fees.
  3. Charges for City Services: The increase primarily represents a budgeted increase for fire retesting fees and parking meter receipts.
  4. Year-to-Date Revenues:  As of May 31, 2011, actual General Fund revenues totaled $383.2 million, which is 1.7 percent higher than FY 2010 revenues for the same period last year.  Most of this increase is related to personal property tax and the other local tax categories, which are both up over last year.
