REVENUES

Permit revenues in the amount of $251,310 were about 9% under budget.Connection charges in the amount of $622,669 were about 21% over the amount budgeted due to continued higher than anticipated activity. ††Interest revenues of $89,587 for the year were approximately 49% over budget due primarily to increased interest rates and higher than anticipated reserves.User fee revenues in the amount of $2,163,295 were 9% less than the amount budgeted amount due to the fact that the California Public Utilities Commission has not yet made a final ruling on Cal-Amís pending rate increase request that will be retroactive to January 1, 2006.Those retroactive user fee amounts will not be received until fiscal year 2006-07.Tax revenues received during the year were slightly less than 100% of the budgeted amount.Grant receipts totaled just $1,987, because most of the budgeted Proposition 50 grant funds will not actually be received until fiscal year 2006-07.Reimbursements of $49,452 were only 21% 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 $55,414 or about 14% over budget due to unanticipated miscellaneous revenues.Overall, total revenues received during the fiscal year totaled $4,240,775, which represented 84% of revenues budgeted for the fiscal year. †††

 

EXPENDITURES

Expenditure activity as depicted on the expenditure graph is similar to patterns seen in past years. Personnel expenditures of $2,685,780 were 1% less than the budgeted amount.Expenditures for supplies and services amounted to $1,759,443 or about 6% percent under budget.Capital assets purchases totaled $16,532 or 76% under the budgeted amount. Included in this category was $50,000 for the conference room upgrade, most of which will be expended in fiscal year 2006-07.Outlays for Project expenditures were $501,835, representing only 33% of the amount budgeted.This is mostly due to activities related to aquifer storage & recovery phase II being delayed to fiscal year 2006-07; and expenditures for various new water conservation efforts being delayed due to the pending decision in the Cal-Am rate case.Election expenses of $118,545 were budgeted and paid during the period.The Contingencies/Reserves category, which consists of a $97,400 contingency, had expenditures of only $8,745 during the fiscal year.Overall, expenditures of $5,090,880 for the fiscal year totaled approximately 80% of the amount budgeted.
