Reappropriation of FY 2012
Encumbrances and Other
Supplemental Appropriations


  1. Real Estate Recordation Taxes: The increase is primarily due to a higher number of sales and higher median sale prices in FY 2013 than the same period in FY 2012.
  2. Other Local Taxes: The increase is mainly due to the timing of the receipt of telecommunications taxes.
  3. Fines and Forfeitures: Collections in this category primarily reflect budgeted increases for red light cameras installed in FY 2012.
  4. Licenses and Permits: The decrease in this category reflects the continued challenges of commercial building permits.
  5. Other Revenue: The increase is due to $0.2 million from the sale of surplus property and insurance recoveries.
