Town Council has approved the budget for FY 2016-2017.
Here is a quick look! (view the full budget document)
The adopted budget includes total revenues of $13,371,675 and expenditures of $23,380,300. Expenditures exceed revenues by $10,008,625 due to $9,816,900 of improvements in the Capital Projects Fund(for which debt was issued in prior periods or is anticipated to be issued in the budget year), $380,000 of improvements in the Hotel Occupancy Fund, and $50,000 in the Storm Drainage Fund paid for by operations. Excluding capital improvements, the overall budget contains a surplus (revenues over expenditures) of $238,275. The fund balance of the General Fund is anticipated to decrease $243,695 primarily due to a transfer of $250,000 to fund capital projects and the intentional draw down of fund balance to fund one-time capital replacement.
