Financial Statements. Key information is summarized below.
• The Redevelopment Agency’s total Fund Balance is $14,663,756, which
represents an decrease of $38,331 for the fiscal year.
• Net assets for the Redevelopment Agency are $(5,667,486), which represents
an increase of $359,885 during the fiscal year. Liabilities typically exceed
assets in Redevelopment Agencies due to the fact that long-term debt is
required to be issued in order to finance the redevelopment activity. The

• The total revenues from all sources were $7,933,934 as compared to the
total cost for all Agency programs of $7,574,049.
