Text Box: Financial Update
Total revenues received in FY 2003-04 was $3,919,727 while expenditures totaled $4,843,346.  The difference of $913,239 was funded from general operating reserves set aside in previous years to fund projects such as those the District is currently pursuing.  As of June 30, 2004, a balance of $2,609,779 remained in the general operating reserves account.
The adopted Budget for FY 2004-05 anticipates revenues of $3,669,000 and expenditures of $4,726,300 combined with the use of an additional $1,057,300 in general operating reserves.  As a part of its budget-balancing plan, the State  of California will receive approximately $190,000 of the District’s property tax revenues in each of the next two years.  The FY 2004-05 budget factors in the reduction for the first year’s shifting of these revenues to the State.
In late 2004, the District opted to expand the budget to a program and performance based budget for FY 2005-06.  A series of strategies for balancing that budget with a diminished use of general operating reserves was developed by staff and adopted by the Board.  The strategies include replenishing the general operating reserves in future years.
