General Fund Budget vs Actual

Below you will find a comparison of budgeted General Fund revenues and expenditures for FY 2021-22 through February 28, 2022. Year to date the City's General Fund has received $19.7 million of the $30.4 million budgeted revenue and spent $16.9 million of the $30 million budgeted for expenditures.


Year Over Year Revenue Comparison by Category

Through February the General Fund has received just over $19.7 million in revenue, approximately $2.9 million (18%) more than the $16.8 million that was received at this point last year. The largest contributing factor to this variance is the improvement in Transient Occupancy Tax (TOT) revenue caused by the increase in demand for leisure travel across the state. $3.3 million in TOT revenue has been received as of the end of February as compared to $1.5 milllion during FY 2020-21, an 118% increase.´╗┐

Permits & Fees revenue also continues to outpace prior fiscal year numbers with $2.1 million in revenue, $831,000 (65%) more that the $1.3 million received during FY 2020-21. Permits & Fee revenue experienced a decrease during FY 2019-20, but saw a partial recovery during last fiscal year and is trending towards pre pandemic numbers this fiscal year. Additionally, Property Tax revenue is up by $457,000 (6%) with $8.5 million in revenue compared to $8 million during FY 2020-21.

Lastly, revenue from Golf Tax and Rentals / Leases are two sources that performed exceptionally well. So far this fiscal year, Golf Tax revenue totals $402,000, an $86,000 (27%) year over year increase. Much like with Golf Tax revenue, revenue from Rentals / Leases has experienced a jump thanks to increased demand. Revenue from this source totals $357,000, a $147,000 (70%) year over year increase.
