MVSD operates under a fiscal year budget cycle beginning July 1 and ending June 30. The District’s financial planning covers three areas: Operations & Maintenance (O&M), Facilities Rehabilitation, and Capital Improvements. The O&M consist of salaries and benefits, general office expenses, equipment and supplies, repair and maintenance, contractual and professional services, utilities and debt service. Revenues include Sewer Service Charges, Ad Valorem Property Taxes, revenues from leases (Cellular Telephone Sites and Billboards), Development related fees (Plan Review, Inspection, Capacity, and Connection fees), and miscellaneous other fees and charges for services provided by the District. The District’s Budget is balanced and consistent in our commitment to provide for the long-term continued provision of services to the District’s ratepayers.
The Fiscal Year 2021-2022 Annual Budget appropriates funds for anticipated expenditures of $11.9 million for all District funds with total revenue projections of $14.7 million with Fiscal Year-end June 30, 2022.
The FY21-22 O&M budget projects revenues of $8.6 million and expenditures of $7.1 million and reflect no increase in expenditures from the prior year. Sewer Service Charges and other miscellaneous charges and fees fully support operations and maintenance expenditures.
The FY21-22 Facilities Rehabilitation Fund budget projects marginal revenue with planned expenditures of $347,100. Ad Valorem Tax revenues are projected to come in at $424,400 and will be transferred from Fund 3409.
The Capital Outlay Fund is intended to fund infrastructure needs for the District and to fund existing and future capacity needs within the District’s collection, treatment and disposal systems. The District’s FY21-22 Capital Outlay Fund budget projects revenues of $143,000 with proposed budget expenditures of approximately $4.2 million in capital improvements.
The District anticipates receipt of an additional $6 million loan in the form of an Installment Purchase Contract in FY21-22 which is necessary to fund the planned capital projects. The loan proceeds will be deposited into the Projects Fund (aka Debt Service Fund).
