District Financial Status
Income and Expense Statement  2019-2023
The Income and Expense Statement is an executive summary that outlines a simplified statement of the five year forecast. It takes revenues, plus levies not passed, minus expenses and shows whether the District is in a Surplus or Deficit situation. The District passed a $1.58 million levy in May 2017 so the next renewal will be collected in Tax year 2023 (on the ballot in November of 2022). This renewal is in Fiscal Year 2023. The Income and Expense Statement outline the revenue and expenditures for all five years.  The black is revenue received and forecast to be received and the Red Line is expenditures.  From this graph, you can see that the District does deficit spend (one year of expenses vs. the same year revenue with no carryover) in FY19 ($419,611), FY20 ($463,109), FY21($1,401,663),  FY22($1,643,254) and FY23($1,957,360).  However, if you include carryover, the District is solvent for all five years of the forecast (Ending balances w/o levies line).
