The General Fund received approximately $2 million in revenue as of August 31, 2022. This reflects an increase of 5.6% compared to the same period in the prior fiscal year. Revenue collected from Permits and Fees of $685 thousand currently exceeds last year's figures by $269 thousand, or 65%. Transient Occupancy Tax (TOT) revenues are also outperforming last fiscal year by just over $100 thousand or 17%. In total, City revenues are demonstrating a stability and growth year-to-date.
The City's major General Fund revenue sources are comprised by Property Tax, TOT, Sales Tax, Franchise Tax, User Utility Tax, Permits & Fees, and Other Taxes & Miscellaneous Revenues. To date, TOT revenues account for the largest majority of General Fund revenue at 36%. The City continues to see strong indications that the economic recovery within this sector has continued into the current fiscal year. Nearly $450 thousand in Building and Safety Permit activity has boosted the Permit and Fees category so far this fiscal year.
GENERAL FUND EXPENDITURES
Year-Over-Year Expenditure Comparison by Department
General Fund expenditures reached just over $2.8 million, roughly $1.4 million more than this time last fiscal year. The largest contributor to this year-over-year change is spending on Professional and Technical Services, Infrastructure, and Salaries & Wages. Ongoing capital projects are attributed to the rise in both professional services and infrastructure spending. These categories combined to make-up roughly $1.3 million in current spending. Salaries and Wages have also increased by 15% when compared to the same month last year, primarily driven by wage increases and a return to previous staffing levels.
