This information <br /> is unaudited. The audited information will be included in the City's Comprehensive <br /> Annual Financial Report (CAFR) and will be presented to Council once the City's <br /> independent auditor has issued its opinion on the CAFR and it has been reviewed by <br /> the Audit Committee which is expected to occur in January or February 2020. If there <br /> are any differences in the financial information presented in this report and the CAFR as <br /> a result of the audit, those changes will be highlighted for the Council at the time the <br /> CAFR is presented to the Council for acceptance. <br /> RECOMMENDATION <br /> Staff recommends that Council adopt the attached resolution (Attachment 1) to accept <br /> the FY 2018/19 Year-end Operating Budget Report and designate the June 30, 2019 <br /> General Fund Balances as shown in Attachment 2. <br /> FINANCIAL STATEMENT <br /> The recommendation ratifies Council's actions since the last approved budget <br /> adjustment (Mid-year Operating Budget adopted by Council on March 5, 2019) and <br /> designates the June 30, 2019 General Fund Balances as outlined in this report. The <br /> proposed General Fund reserves will result in combined year-end General Fund <br /> reserves of $27.9 million which is approximately 25 percent of the actual FY 2018/19 <br /> General Fund operating expenditures and 23 percent of the FY 2019/20 budgeted <br /> General Fund expenditures. The City's policy is to have total General Fund reserves <br /> equal to at least 20 percent of operating expenses with a target of 25 percent. <br />
