Supplemental Appropriations


  1. Consumer Utility Taxes: The decrease in these taxes is primarily due to the relatively mild winter.
  2. Communication Taxes: The decrease in these taxes is primarily attributable to a one time refund issued to a large wireless provider that collected taxes on data services for various wireless devices used by their customers. The total amount of the refund, including interest, was $12.9 million, and the City’s share was $0.3 million.
  3. Recordation Tax: The increase in this tax is primarily the result of the sale and refinancing of a few large commercial properties. Based on current collections, primarily for residential refinancings, staff projects collections will be approximately $4.8 million, an increase of $0.7 million above the previous projection.
  4. Revenue from Federal Government: The decrease in Federal revenue primarily represents the timing of payments for the Federal Prisoner Per Diem.
  5. Other Revenue: The increase in other revenue resulted from sale of surplus property.
  6. Charges for Service: The increase in charges for services is primarily the result of a budgeted increase in meter fees (to $1.75/hour) implemented with the installation of the new multi-space meters midway through FY 2011. In addition, planning permit fees also show increased activity for FY 2012.
  7. Appropriated Refunding Bond Proceeds:  In April, the City sold $63.6 million in refunding bonds used to refund part of Series 2001, 2004A, 2004C, and 2006A bonds. Net proceeds of $73.5 million reflected in the table were used to fund an escrow deposit to be used to pay the old bonds.
