10-1. Finance

Action to accept the report on the condition of each fund in the treasury through November 8, 2010 per NRS 251.030. (Nick Providenti)

Staff Summary: NRS 251.030 requires the Finance Director (for the purpose of the statute acting as the County Auditor) to report to the Board of County Commissioners (or in our case the Board of Supervisors), at each regular meeting thereof, the condition of each fund in the treasury. A "Statement of Cash Receipts and Disbursements" indicates the beginning balance, receipts, disbursements, and the ending balance of each cash account for every fund in the City as of November 8, 2010. It is important to note that there will always be timing differences with these balances - for example while all departments take deposits to the bank on a daily basis, revenue reports are only prepared twice a month and there is usually a lag time between when the reports are prepared and when they are entered into the system.
