TREASURER’S REPORT
October 28, 2013

To Council Members for Your Information and Review

I attended the mandatory Fiscal Officer’s training in Dayton last week.
The session on the OPERS public employees’ retirement system was the most interesting. Several of the changes to the system affect some of us employed by North Bend. I will be preparing an information e-mail for all concerned in the next few days.
We received our 2nd half rollback property taxes from the state as expected in the amount of $23,819. This puts us right in line with our projections for property taxes for the year. We actually have received about $6000 more than expected.
I have prepared and distributed a year end forecast at the request of Mr. Hartoin. As you can see we project we should end the year on a positive note.
We wrote two Purchase Orders this month:
$300 to JMA consultants for a site plan review
$6650 for Maintenance Garage upgrades as approved by council
Distributed to council members this month are the following reports:
• Monthly Cash Flow Analysis:
Showing money in/money out and the check book balance
• Payment and charge Register Report:
Includes all checks & automatic payments taken directly from our checkbook since last Council Meeting
• Receipts Register Report:
