General Fund Budget vs Actual

The adopted General Fund budget recognized $36 million in revenues and expenditures, including transfers, and resulted in a structurally balanced budget for Fiscal Year (FY) 2022-23. Year to date, the City's General Fund has received just over $5.5 million in revenues and roughly $8.3 million in expenditures.


Year-Over-Year Revenue Comparison by Revenue Source

The General Fund received approximately $5.5 million in revenue as of September 30, 2022. This reflects an increase of 11% compared to the same period in the prior fiscal year. Revenue collected from Permits and Fees of $1 million exceeds last year's figure by $373 thousand, or 56%. Transient Occupancy Tax (TOT) revenues continued to outperform last fiscal year by just over $350 thousand, or 21%, by the end of August. 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, Transient Occupancy Tax, Sales 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 37%. The City continued experiencing the strong economic rebound within this sector and anticipates a continued trend further into the current fiscal year. Sales Tax revenue of over $640 thousand also points to an ongoing trend of strong revenues despite the changing economic environment.


Year-Over-Year Expenditure Comparison by Department

General Fund expenditures reached just over $8.3 million, roughly $2.3 million or 37% 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 $3 million in current spending. Salaries and Wages have also increased by 27% when compared to the same month last year, primarily driven by wage increases and a return to previous staffing levels.
