Shelbina City Council Receives Audit Review After Long Delay
Click Photo to Enlarge  

Gary Luck of Luck, Humpheries and Associates out of Hannibal was on hand at Tuesday night’s Shelbina City Council meeting to give an audit review for the City’s fiscal year ending June 30, 2016.
   Audit Review
   Luck started off by explaining why he was so late with the review. He said that normally they meet in September. “The reason for the delay was a peer review committee, saying on our governmental engagements we have to have what they call a pre-issuance review,” Luck explained. He wasn’t able to get the pre-issuance review completed until just recently. So consequently, he had to delay his report to the Shelbina City Council.
   He first pointed out that under total assets its broken down to Cash and Investments, Capital Assets and Other Assets. At the end of 2016 fiscal year, they totaled $14,180,087 compared to $14,236,726 at the end of the 2015 fiscal year.
   Total liabilities at the end of the 2016 fiscal year were $1,018,824 compared to $1,159,807 at the end of the 2015 fiscal year.
   Luck said the net position at the end of the 2016 fiscal year was $13,161,263 compared to $13,076,919 at the end of fiscal year 2015. “You’re really operating at a break even situation,” Luck told the mayor and council.
   He also went over revenues, which totaled over $6,623,842 for 2016 compared to $7,036,468 in 2015. The biggest difference was the Charges for services category. Luck was guessing the citizens had a lighter winter than usual and the City didn’t bring in as much with its utilities.
   Under the total expenses, the City totaled $6,539,498 in 2016 compared to $6,870,777 in 2015. The change in net position totaled $84,344.
   Under the Statement of Net Position, Luck pointed out that the total assets were $14,180,087. Restricted assets totaled $5,440,780.
   Under the liabilities, the total debt is $1,018,824. The total net position is at $13,161,263. Luck said the City is sitting strong financially, especially for a community of its size.
   Another thing Luck went over was the Statement of Activities for the City. Total expenses for governmental activities was at $1,260,819. Business type expenses totaled $5,278,679.
   The last thing he pointed out was that the City had a standing of positive $83,344.
   Discussed Extending the
   TDD Tax for City Streets
   There was discussion in the last meeting about the possibility of the City replacing the TDD (Highway 36 four-lane tax) that is expiring in July with a tax for the same amount to help cover the costs of streets and transportation in Shelbina.
   City Clerk Tim Lacy said he spoke with County Clerk Tracy Smith about what it would require and cost to put this question on a ballot.
   To be on the August ballot, everything would have to be done by May 30. That would include language for the ballot drafted. For the November election, everything would have to be in place by Aug. 29. The council decided to look at putting it on the ballot for the November election.
   Lacy said this would require a public hearing to answer any questions taxpayers may have. He said the largest cost would be printing the ballots. The cost would run between $2,500 and $5,000 for the election.
