INFORMATION: The Town Council adopted its annual General Fund Budget for the current fiscal year ending June 30, 2022. Using a conservative revenue estimation approach, total revenues for the year were estimated at $25,347,801. The impact of the pandemic on state and local revenues have not been as severe as previously anticipated. As shown in the Third Quarter Budget Status to Council on April 19, 2022, the Town collected over 85% of the total adopted revenue budget. Some revenues like ad valorem and hotel occupancy taxes as examples, exceeded the budget projection. Local sales tax collections have continued to grow above those of last year. Through March 31, 2022 the Town has collected 66% of local sales tax revenues. (There is a three-month lag period between the collection and distribution of sales tax revenues to localities.)

Below is a summary chart showing the revenue budget compared to actual revenue receipts.



Based on the revenues collected to date, sales tax collection trends and the general economic trends, we project an increase of $1.1 million in the General Fund through June 30, 2022. The adopted budget will increase from $25.3 million to $26.5 million. Below is a summary of the proposed revenue changes.
