Most Recent Financial Information
The following financial information is compiled from our 2021 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report, from pages 43, 45 and 51.
Governmental funds represent programs and services that benefit citizens and visitors, such as public safety, parks and recreation, animal services and the library. The cost of these services are primarily financed with property tax and sales tax revenues. Proprietary funds rely on fees and charges for their support. These funds include the provision of water and wastewater service and trash collection. Proprietary funds also include the activity of internal service funds that benefit the City's own operations, including the City's insurance operations.
Governmental funds report ongoing operations as revenues and expenditures. Other financing sources/(uses) are used to report non-recurring items, including proceeds from debt issuance, the net effect of intrafund transfers, and sales of capital assets. Proprietary funds report ongoing operations as operating revenues and operating expenses. Non-operating revenues/(expenses) include interest income and sales of capital assets. Capital contributions/transfers include infrastructure received from developers and the net effect of intrafund transfers.
