|RUBA staff assisted in drafting a utility budget in October, 2005 for the current fiscal year, which was adopted by the village council January 4, 2006. Although anticipated utility customer revenues appear to be less than the utility expenses, sufficient additional revenue has been appropriated from other sources.
An excel spreadsheet was created by the administrator to be used as a financial report to the council which incorporates month to date and year to date revenue and expense data with the FY-06 budget. A similar spreadsheet was created for reporting accounts payable to the council, however, in attempting to discuss these reports recently with the new tribal administrator, she was unfamiliar with them, and it seemed apparent that these financial reports are not being created for the council.
Regarding sustainable indicators, in a letter received October 20, 2005, the administrator indicated her plan was to incorporate an R/R expense line item in future budgets, however it is unknown whether progress on other sustainable indicators has been made.
