Financial Overview - Component Unit

The annual Carbondale Memorial Day Service was held on Monday, May 28, 2012 at 10:00 a.m. in historic WoodlawnCemetery on

East Main Street
in Carbondale. The keynote speaker was Illinois Lieutenant Governor Sheila Simon with Mayor Joel Fritzler serving as Master of Ceremonies.

The first Memorial Day service in Illinois and perhaps in the country, to honor those who had died in the Civil War, took place in WoodlawnCemetery on April 29, 1866. The City currently maintains the Cemetery and Memorial Day services are observed each year at the site. WoodlawnCemetery is on the National Register of Historic Places and the Carbondale Register of Historic Sites. Burials are no longer allowed at WoodlawnCemetery. The cemetery is open from dawn to dusk. There are over 60 Civil War graves and 30 freed slaves as well as others buried at Woodlawn. Together there are about 150-200 graves on the site.


Component Units are legally separate entities that meet any of three tests: 1) the primary government appoints the voting majority of the board of the component unit and is able to impose its will or is in a relationship of financial burden or benefits; 2) the component unit is fiscally dependent upon the primary government; 3) the financial statements would be misleading if data from the component unit were not included.

The Carbondale Public Library provides a general program of public library services to the residents of Carbondale. The primary source of revenues is local property taxes.

The summary statements, graphs and charts in the Introductory Section of this budget do not include the Library’s revenues, expenditures, change in fund balance amounts and full time equivalent number of employees since the Library is not considered a part of the primary government.
