The City of Bernard starts the year of 2017 with the following unrestricted amounts in its general fund: cash of $20,000 and investments of $70,000. In addition, it holds a small building bought on January 1, 2016, for general government purposes for $300,000 and related long-term debt of $240,000. The building is being depreciated on the straight-line method over 10 years. The interest rate is 10 percent. The general fund has four separate functions: general government, public safety, public works, and health and sanitation. Other information includes the following:
On the last day of the year, the city borrowed $64,000 from a local bank and used that money to buy a truck. The first payment on the loan (plus interest) will be made at the end of the next year. The city started a landfill this year that it is recording within its general fund. It is included as a public works function. Closure costs today would be $260,000 although the landfill is not expected to be filled for nine more years. The city has incurred no costs to date although the landfill is now 15 percent filled. For the equipment and supplies that have been ordered but not yet received, the City Council (the highest decision-making body in the government) has voted to honor the commitment when the items are received. The new building is being depreciated over 20 years using the straight-line method and no salvage value, whereas depreciation of the equipment is similar except that its life is only 10 years. Assume the city records a full year’s depreciation in the year of acquisition. The investments are valued at $116,000 at year-end.
