PROPRIETARY FUNDS  

Proprietary Funds are established to account for the self-supporting municipal activities that are similar to private business, where the intent of the governing body is that the costs of providing goods and services to the general public on a continuing basis be financed or recovered primarily through charges for services. The significant characteristic of a proprietary fund is that the accounting system makes it possible to determine operating profit or loss.

The Waterworks and Sewerage Fund provides for the operation and maintenance of the municipal water and wastewater treatment and distribution systems. In addition, transfers from the Operating Account provide the financing of Community Investments and debt service requirements. Operating revenues are derived from water and sewer service charges. Community Investments are also financed from property owner contributions and General Obligation Bond proceeds. The Public Works Department is responsible for the administration of the Waterworks and Sewerage Fund.

The Parking System Operations Fund operates and maintains public use parking lots and metered street areas. Revenue is derived from parking meter receipts, permits, and fines. The Finance Department is responsible for the administration of this fund. Maintenance of the municipal parking lots and meters and the collection of meter revenues are provided by the Street Maintenance Division of the Public Works Department.

The Solid Waste Management Fund which is administered by the Public Works Department, provides for the municipal refuse collections, landscape waste removal and the recycling program. Revenue is derived from City refuse customer service fees, landscape waste fees, and recycling assessment fees.

The Rental Properties Fund operates the University City Municipal Complex as a service center for government offices, including the Police Department and other non-profit organizations. The Eurma C. Hayes Child Care Center houses the City's Child Care Program. Rental income, which provides funds for operating expenses and community investments, is the major source of revenue. The Public Works Department is responsible for the operation of this fund.

INTERNAL SERVICE FUND
The Self Insurance Fund is used to account for the City's Group Health Insurance premiums which are financed by City, employee, and retiree contributions. This fund is administered by the General Government Department - Human Resources Division. During FY 2008 the City Council authorized the City Manager to convert the City's health insurance plan to a fully insured health insurance plan effective May 1, 2008. Outstanding FY 2008 claims costs estimated to have been paid in FY 2009 were provided for in the expenditures in FY 2008. During FY 2010 the Self Insurance Fund will be closed and all remaining funds will be disbursed into the General Fund to recapture a portion of the initial loan made by the General Fund to establish the Self Insurance fund.
