SUMMARY:March 31, 2006 marked the conclusion of the third quarter of fiscal year 2006-07.Bar graphs comparing budgeted and actual year-to-date revenues and expenditures for the period are included as Exhibits 12-A and 12-B.Exhibit 12-C presents the same information in a table format.The following comments summarize District staff's observations:

 

REVENUES

Permit revenues in the amount of $185,422 were about 10% under budget, while connection charges in the amount of $441,666 were about 14% over the amount budgeted due to continued higher than anticipated activity. ††Interest revenues of $64,141 for the period were approximately 43% over budget due primarily to increased interest rates and higher than anticipated reserves.User fees revenues in the amount of $1,399,557 were approximately 21% under the budgeted amount due to the fact that the year-to-date revenue does not include receipts for the month of March.Also, the California Public Utilities Commission has not yet ruled on Cal-Amís pending rate increase request that will be retroactive to January 1, 2006.The first installment of property tax revenues in the amount of $533,133 was received during this period.No grant funds were actually received as of the end of the third quarter.Project reimbursements of $14,873 were only approximately 8% of the amount budgeted for the period, mostly due to pending increased conservation measures awaiting the decision on Cal-Amís rate increase.The ďOtherĒ category revenues were $46,009 or about 26% over budget due to unanticipated miscellaneous revenues. Overall, total revenues received during the first nine months of the fiscal year totaled $2,717,801, which represented 72% of revenues budgeted for the same period. †††
