MONTHLY FINANCE REPORT:

Mrs. Barbara Malkove, Executive Director of Finance, gave the following report:

REPORT TO COUNCIL for FEBRUARY, 2012

“The financial statements for the first five months of the fiscal year ending September 30, 2012 show the absence of the one cent sales tax which sunset at the end of last year. We don’t have nearly ten millions dollars in revenue that was lost this year. General fund sales and use tax revenues are over budget by approximately $3.8M. They are $9.7M less than the same five months last year. Total general fund revenues were over budget by $5.7M and $9M less than last year. We still track sales tax receipt numbers for trends.

The administration and department heads continue to monitor all expenses carefully. Departmental expenditures for the period ending February 29, 2012 were under budget by more than $5M and $868K more the 2010-11 year. General fund budgeted expenditures for the first five months of the 2011-12 fiscal year were under budget by $5.6M and $741K more than the previous year.

We have worked up various projections for 2012-2013 which have been presented to you by the mayor. I was able to meet with Ms. Rich and Ms. Gregory to review questions they had about the projections and received some suggestions from Ms. Rich, collected from her district. I will gladly meet with any or all of you if you would like to have more information or have comments or suggestions about the projections.”
