Where’s Waldo Question #1

  1. Q: What is the proposed FY 21 budget for general fund “operating revenues”?

    Background: Have you ever wondered how much “operating revenue” the general fund takes in? This would seem like an easy question, but it isn’t. The reason it is difficult to answer is that the Town includes in its total “revenue” a number of items that are not generated in the normal course of operations. We need to exclude those items to compute “operating revenue.” The definition of “operating revenue” is total “revenue” LESS:

    • reimbursements for lease payments for the Town library building and corporation yard

    • funds transfers into the general fund, and

    • previously expensed pension trust expenses which are being returned to the General Fund” (the Town’s wording not ours)
