Financial Reports:

Jenny gave the Financial reports. The Fund status at the end of February was $289,752.52. The Revenues were $180,995.27. Expenses totaled $77,994.53. There were no fund adjustments. Water and Sewer reconciled exactly, as did Income Tax, and the bank reconciliation went through with no adjusting factors. The Cemetery Fund is getting dangerously low. With Memorial Day coming, and our seasonal Cemetery employee returning soon, we will need to address this. We have spent the entire years money for Streets Equipment already. We are getting less and less money. Linda asked about Butch’s Welding payment. Are we still “Bartering” with him for paving? Jenny said no.
