General Fund Bank Statements - $61,242,041.61
General Fund Deposits for July 2011 through June 2012 total $61.2 Million. Even without the Bond Debt, the City revenue was over $40 Million last year.
General Ledger - $62,367,493.55.
The General Ledger has $1.25 Million more in deposits recorded than the Bank. Traditionally the largest deposits of the day are recorded first, but in August, 2011 the Bank changed their statements to list the smallest deposits first in the hopes that someone in the City would notice the discrepancy in deposits.
Basic procedure for the City would be to record the money and deposit the funds, but the General Ledger shows that the deposit entries are made weeks after the money is deposited. Not one day of the general ledger matched the bank records.
