Where's the money?

Trying to get to the bottom of the issues.

The metro district reported to the board a few months ago that the Financials had increased by over $100,000.00 over the prior year. Even our local paper reported the wonderful news, yet last night's report showed we were only up by $10,000.00 .

So what has happened? Did we go on a spending spree?

The board has not authorized a spending spree, and one of the explanations was that the board bought a fan press for the sewer plant that has a $60,000.00 loan payment that had to be paid. That is true but what they didn't say was that the biannual loan payments are covered by the $10,000.00 per month we no longer spend on removal of sludge by outside contractors .

I am going to need a lot more information and explanations.

I don't know how you handle the finance in your home, but I don't look at mine and see an extra $1000.00 just because the house payment is not due for another week!
