    Analysis of Fund Financial Statements

    Governmental Funds

    The focus of the District's governmental funds is to provide information on near-terminflows, outflows, and balances of spendable resources. Such information is useful inassessing the District's financing requirements. In particular, unreserved fund balancemay serve as a useful measure of the District's net resources available for spending at theend of the year.

    As of December 31, 2004, the District's governmental funds reported a combined endingfund balance of $ 592,689, an increase of $491,358 from the prior year. The reason forthe large increase in combined fund balance is the receipt of proceeds from a bond issueof $385,000 without expenditure of these funds for capital improvements. There was alsoan adjustment to the prior-year fund balance of $86,568 to reclassify deferred revenue ofad valorem taxes. Approximately 10% of the total combined fund balance ($58,377)constitutes unreserved fund balance, which is available for spending at the District'sdiscretion. The remainder of the fund balance is reserved-capital project $351,518, -debtservice $182,794. and is not available to spend at the District's discretion.

    The General Fund is the primary operating fund of the District. At the end of 2004, theunreserved balance was $58,377. For the year ended December 31, 2004, the fundbalance increased $35,282. The fund balance increase was due largely to a prior-yearadjustment redassifying deferred income to the fund balance ($18,551). Also, revenueincreased $10,068 over the prior-year, while expenditures decreased $4,868.

    Budgetary Highlight

    The District adopted its 2004 budget at our regular meeting of December 7, 2003. Theboard of commissioners reviews the budget/actual financial figures on a quarterly basis.We amended the budget and approved it at the regular board meeting of July 6, 2004 andNovember 9, 2004, all appropriations lapse at year-end.

    1) General obligation bonds in the amount of $600,000, issued to finance constructionof the gymnasium, and the purchase of recreation equipment. The bonds wereissued September 1, 1998, and have a balance at December 31, 2004 of $495,000.The bonds are financed with ad valorem taxes assessed on property with-in theDistrict.

    Long-term obligations are reported as liabilities in the government-wide financialstatements, and in the debt service fund for governmental fund statements. The scheduleof annual long-term debt obligations is presented in note No. 8 to the financial statements.

    Future Economic Plans

    The District's management approach is conservative in their action. The Board ofCommissioners actively monitors revenues and expenses, and compares them to theannual budget, and evaluates the costs of proposed expansion projects, tn November2004 the Board was able to pass an additional bond issue without increasing propertytaxes. This $385,000 bond issues will be used to construct the ball fields needed tocomplete the recreation facilities. Land preparation began immediately after passage ofthe bond issue and the Board has been able to secure the donation of lights & poles, andfeels the ball fields will be completed in 2005.

    Bush, Louisiana

    Notes to the Financial StatementsFor the year Ended December 31, 2004

    NOTE 1 - DESCRIPTION OF COMPONENT UNIT AND REPORTING ENTITY

    INTRODUCTION

    The St. Tammany Parish Recreation District No. 2 (district) was created by Legislative Act 1988, No. 658 as a pilotprogram to foster and encourage recreational activities and related programs on a parish wide basis, incooperation with all political subdivisions and interested private parties of St. Tammany Parish. As provided byLouisiana Revised Statute 40:1496, the District is governed by a five member board, who are resident propertytaxpayers of the district. The board members are referred to as the Board of Commissioners. The parishgoverning authority appoints them for terms of two to four years. The board members are not compensated fortheir services. The District is located in Bush, Louisiana. The District has completed construction of a gym, and isconstructing baseball and Softball fields to complete a sports complex in Bush, Louisiana.

    Reporting Entity

    As the governing authority of the parish, for reporting purposes, the St. Tammany Parish Government is thefinancial reporting entity for St. Tammany Parish. The financial reporting entity consists of (a) the primarygovernment, parish council, (b) organizations for which the primary government is financially accountable, and (c)other organizations for which nature and significance of their relationship with the primary government are suchthat exclusion would cause the reporting entity's financial statements to be misleading or incomplete

    GASB Statement No. 14, The Reporting Entity, established criteria for determining the governmental reportingentity and component units that should be included within the reporting entity. The basic criterion for including apotential component unit within the reporting entity is financial accountability. The GASB has set forth criteria to beconsidered in determining financial accountability. The criteria includes:

    1. Appointing a voting majority of an organization's governing body, and

    a. The ability of the parish government to impose its will on that organization and/or

    b. The potential for the organization to provide specific financial benefits to or impose specificfinancial burdens on the parish government.

    2. Organizations for which the parish government does not appoint a voting majority but are fiscallydependent on the parish government.

    3. Organizations for which the reporting entity financial statements would be misleading if data of theorganization is not included because of the nature or significance of the relationship.

    Because the parish government appoints a voting majority of the District's governing board and the parishgovernment has the ability to impose its will on the District, the District was determined to be a component unit ofthe St. Tammany Parish Government, the financial reporting entity. The accompanying financial statementspresent information only on the funds maintained by the District and do not present information on the parishgovernment, the general government services provided by that governmental unit, or the other governmental unitsthat comprise the financial reporting entity.

    NOTE 2 - SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

    The accompanying financial statements of the St. Tammany Parish Recreation District No. 2 have been preparedin conformity with generally accepted accounting principles of the United States of America (GAAP) as applied togovernment units. Under Governmental Accounting Standards Board Statement No. 34, a statement of net assetsand a statement of activities are prepared, which are presented on the accrual basis of accounting. Thesignificant differences are the reporting of 1) capital outlays as assets and corresponding depreciation, 2) longterm debt obligations as liabilities in the government-wide statement. The Governmental Accounting StandardsBoard (GASB) is the accepted standard setting body for establishing governmental accounting and financialreporting principles.

    A. BASIS OF PRESENTATION

    Government-Wide StatementsThe statement of net assets and the statement of activities displays, information about the District, as a

    whole. These statements distinguish between those activities of the District that are governmental and thosethat are considered business type activities.

    Fund Financial StatementsDuring the year, the District segregates transactions related to certain functions or activities in separate

    funds in order to aid financial management and to demonstrate legal compliance.

    B. FUND ACCOUNTING

    The District uses funds to maintain its financial records during the year. A fund is a separate accountingentity with a self-balancing set of accounts.

    Funds of the District are classified as governmental funds. Governmental funds account for the District'sgeneral activities, including the collection and disbursements of specific or legally restricted monies, theacquisition or construction of general fixed assets, and the servicing of general long-term debt. Governmentalfunds of the District include:

    a. General Fund - the general operating fund of the District accounts for all financial resources, exceptthose, required to be accounted for in other funds.

    b. Debt Service Fund - accounts for transactions relating to resources retained and used for thepayment of principal and interest on those long-term obligations recorded in the General Long-termDebt Account Group.

    c. Capital Projects Fund - accounts for financial resources received from the issuance of generalobligation bonds and used for the acquisition, construction, or improvement of capital facilities notreported in the other governmental funds.

    Notes to the Financial Statements (Continued)For the year Ended December 31, 2004

    C. GOVERNMENT-WIDE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

    The government-wide financial statements (i.e., the statement of net assets and the statement of changes innet assets) report information on all activities of the District. For the most part the effect of inter-fund activityhas been removed from these statements. Governmental activities, which normally are supported by taxesand inter-governmental revenues, are reported separately from business-type activities, which rely to asignificant extent on fees and charges for support.

    The statement of activities demonstrates the degree, to which the direct expenses, of a given function orsegment, are offset by program revenues. Direct expenses are those expenses that are clearly identifiablewith a specific function or segment. Program revenues include 1) charges to customers or applicants whopurchase, use or directly benefit from goods, services or privileges provided by a given function or segmentand 2) grants and contributions that are restricted to meeting the operational or capital requirements of aparticular function or segment. Taxes and other items not properly included among program revenues wouldbe reported as general revenues.

    D. BASIS OF ACCOUNTING

    The accounting and financial reporting treatment applied to a fund is determined by the fund's measurementfocus. With this measurement of focus, only current assets and current liabilities generally are included on thebalance sheet in the fund statements. Long-term assets and long-term liabilities are included in thegovernmental-wide statements. Operating statements, of governmental funds, present increases in revenues,and other financing sources, and decreases in expenditures and other financing uses in current assets.

    The government-wide financial statements are reported using the economic resources measurement focusand the accrual basis of accounting. With this measurement focus, all assets and all liabilities associated withthe operation of these activities are included on the statement of net assets. Revenues are recorded whenearned and expenses are recorded when a liability is incurred, regardless of the timing of related cash flows.

    The modified accrual basis of accounting is used by governmental funds. The accounting and financialreporting treatment applied to a fund is determined by its measurement focus. Governmental funds areaccounted for using a current financial resources measurement focus. With this measurement focus, onlycurrent assets and current liabilities generally are included on the balance sheet. Operating statements ofthese funds present increases and decreases in net current assets. Effective for financial statements issuedafter June 30, 2000, GASB Statement 33, Accounting and Financial Reporting for Non-exchangeTransactions, defines a non-exchange transaction as a transaction whereby the government gives or receivesvalue without directly receiving or giving equal value in return. Property taxes are imposed non-exchangerevenues, which result from assessments imposed on non-governmental entities including individuals. Assetsshould be recognized when the government has an enforceable lien or legal claim to the resources, or theresources are received, whichever occurs first. Revenues are recognized in the period when use of theresources is required or first permitted by time requirements, for example for property taxes, the period forwhich (budget period) they are levied, or at the same time the assets are recognized, if no time requirementshave been established. Resources received or recognized as receivable before the time requirements aremet should be recognized as deferred revenue. However, for revenue to be recognized under the modifiedaccrual basis, the measurable and available criteria must also be met. Governmental funds use the followingpractices in recording revenues and expenditures:
