Order #5 – Fund Balance Policy Purpose For increased financial stability, the City of Cumberland desires to manage its financial resources by establishing fund balance ranges for selected funds. This will ensure the City maintains a prudent level of financial resources to protect against reducing service levels or raising taxes and fees because of temporary revenue shortfalls or unexpected one-time expenditures. Fund Balance Range It is the goal of the City to achieve and maintain an unreserved General Fund balance equal to 12.5% of expenditures. The City considers a balance of less than 5.0% to be cause for concern, barring unusual or deliberate circumstances. The amount set here is based on the predictability of revenues, volatility of expenditures, and liquidity requirements of the General Fund and may need to be reviewed periodically. Fund Creation The authority for the management, creation and consolidation of existing and new funds is specifically delegated to the City Comptroller. The City Comptroller shall submit any change among the existing fund structure to the City Administrator for review. The consolidation of funds for reporting purposes shall be managed by the City Comptroller.
Order #8 - Historic District Property Tax Credit for property at 214-226 N. Mechanic Street
