FALL 2016 FINANCE UPDATE YTD | October 31, 2016 the General Fund giving is $343,526, which is $5,176 (1.5%) over budget. The expenses are $328,080, which is $10,350 (3.1%) under budget, resulting in an excess of $15,446 in revenue over expenses. As a result of significant wind damage, that was likely to repeat, a decision was made to make a substantial investment in a metal roof for the front section of the building. The cost, after the insurance settlement, is $29K and sufficient funds from the General and Designated Funds have been set aside to cover these costs. If anyone has any questions and/or comments please feel free to forward those to the office or speak to any of the following finance team members: Linda Fourman, Mike Gallagher, Katie McKee, Kent Powell or Monty Stump.
