Continuous Problem
– City of Monroe

to Accompany

Essentials of Accounting for
Governmental

and Not-for-Profit
Organizations: 

Twelfth Edition

Chapters
2 through 8 describe accounting and financial reporting by state and local
governments. A continuous problem is presented to provide an overview of the
reporting process, including preparation of fund basis and government-wide
statements.  The problem assumes the
government is using fund accounting for its internal record-keeping and then at
year-end makes necessary adjustments to prepare the government-wide statements.
The problem that follows is presented in the same order as the textbook
(beginning with Chapters 3, and 4).

Each
chapter requires the preparation of journal entries to record the events and
transactions of governmental, proprietary, or fiduciary funds.  For the General Fund, use control accounts
for the budgetary accounts, revenues, expenditures and encumbrances.  For all other funds, use separate accounts
for each type of revenue and expenditure/expense.  At appropriate stages, preparation of the
fund and government-wide statements are required. The following funds are included
in this series of problems:

Governmental
Funds

Ø 
General

Ø 
Special revenue—Street and Highway Fund

Ø 
Capital projects—City Hall Annex Construction
Fund

Ø 
Debt service—City Jail Annex Debt Service Fund

Ø

Ø 
Internal service—Stores and Services Fund

Ø

Required:Part of this is
already completed if you use the problem templates posted in Bb

  1. Start a worksheet for
    adjustments, using the trial balance format illustrated in the text (i.e.
    list accounts with debit balances first, then accounts with credit
    balances).  Enter the balances from
    the governmental funds financial statements prepared for Section 5-C.  When doing this, follow the following
    guidelines:

§ 
Net
Assets:
  Use a single account for net
assets (which will include the beginning balance of all fund balance accounts).

§ 
Intergovernmental
Revenues:
  When setting up the
worksheet, set up separate lines for the intergovernmental revenues as follows:

State Grant for Highway and Street Maintenance

$ 1,072,000

Operational Grant—General Government

 332,000

Capital Grant—Public Safety

1,320,000

  total

$2,724,000

§ 
Capital
Assets:
  It is not necessary to set
up separate lines for different classes of capital (fixed) assets or
accumulated depreciation (simply use one row for Capital Assets and another for
Accumulated Depreciation).

§ 
Confirm that the total debits and credits equal.

2. Prepare worksheet entries and post to the worksheet
for the following items. Identify each adjustment by the letter used in the
problem:

a.  Record the January 1, 2015 balances of general
fixed assets and related accumulated depreciation accounts. The City of Monroe had the following
balances (excluding Internal Service Funds):

Cost

Accumulated
Depreciation

Totals

 $ 65,900,000

29,800,000

b.  Eliminate the capital expenditures shown
in the governmental funds Statement of Revenues, Expenditures, and Changes in
Fund Balances.

c.   Depreciation expense (governmental activities)
for the year totaled $ 5,750,000.

d.  Eliminate
the other financing sources from the sale of bonds by recording a liability for
bonds payable and the related premium.

e.  As
of January 1, 2015, the City of Monroe had $12,000,000 in general obligation
bonds outstanding.

f.  Eliminate
the expenditures for bond principal.

g.  Accrue
interest in the amount of $328,000. (Two bond issues were outstanding; interest
payments for both were last made on July 1, 2015. The computation is as
follows: ($11,200,000 × .03 × 6/12) +
($4,000,000 ×. 08 × 6/12) = $328,000).

h.  Adjust
for the interest accrued in the prior year government-wide statements, but recorded
as an expenditure in the 2015 fund basis statements, ($12,000,000 × .03 × 6/12) = $180,000.

i.  Amortize
bond premium in the amount of $ 10,000.

j.  Make
adjustments for additional revenue accrual. The only adjustment is for property
taxes to eliminate the current year deferral of property taxes.

k.  Adjust
for the $21,000 of property taxes that was deferred in 2014 and recognized as
revenue in the 2015 fund-basis statements.

l.  Assume
the City adopted a policy in 2015 of allowing employees to accumulate
compensated absences.  Make an adjustment
accruing the expense of $ 39,500 Charge compensated
absences expense
.

m.  Bring in the balances of the internal
service fund balance sheet accounts. Again, use a single account for all capital
assets and a second account for all accumulated depreciation balances (use a
separate column of the worksheet to enter Internal Service Fund entries).   

n.  No
revenues from internal service funds were with external parties. Assume $3,200
of the $11,200 “Due from Other Funds” in the internal service accounts
represents a receivable from the General Fund and the remaining $8,000 is due
from the enterprise fund. Eliminate the $3,200 interfund receivables.

o.  Reduce
governmental fund expenses by the net operating profit of internal service
funds. As the amount is small, reduce general government expenses for the entire
amount.

p.  Eliminate
transfers that are between departments reported within governmental activities.

3. Prepare, in good form, a Statement of Activities
for the City of Monroe
for the Year Ended December 31, 2015. For purposes of this statement, assume:

§ 
$ 332,000 in the General Fund is a state grant specifically
to support general government programs.

§ 
$ 1,072,000 in the Street and Highway Fund is an
operating grant specifically for highway and street maintenance expenses.

§ 
$ 1,320,000 in the City Jail Construction Fund
is a capital grant that applies to public safety.

  Use the
balances computed from the worksheet completed in part 2 for the governmental
activities portion of the statement.  Use
the solution to P6–C (Enterprise
fund) to prepare the business activities portion (net any short-term interfund
payables/receivables).

4. Prepare, in good form, a Statement of Net Assets
for the City of Monroe
as of December 31, 2015. Group all capital assets, net of depreciation. Include
a breakdown in the Net Assets section for (a) capital assets, net of
related debt, (b) restricted, and (c) unrestricted. For purposes
of classifying net assets for the governmental activities, assume:

§ 
For the governmental activities net assets invested in capital assets, net
of related debt
, the related debt includes the bonds payable, the premium on
bonds payable, and the advance from the water utility fund.

§ 
The special revenue fund resources are
restricted by the granting agency for street and highway maintenance.  These ($ 247,000) are the only restricted
resources in the governmental activities. 

5. Prepare the reconciliation necessary to convert
from the fund balance reported in the governmental funds Balance Sheet to the
net assets in the government-wide Statement of Net Assets.  EXTRA CREDIT 10 POINTS  for both reconciliation

6. Prepare the reconciliation necessary to convert
from the change in fund balances in the governmental funds Statement of
