Subject: Utility revenues and expenditures

One piece of information that we received as part of the water supply funding committee is a tabulation of
utility revenues and expenditures that was compiled by ACIR for fiscal year 93-94. This table indicates
that total water revenues for publicly owned utilities in that year was $2,005,036,905. and the total
expenditures was $1,123,667,891. This indicates that state-wide water services resulted in a net profit
for local governments of almost $900 million. However, I would point out that I do not know all of the
assumptions behind this information and some of the numbers appear te be questionable, such as the
Peace River Manasota Regional Water Supply Authority, which reported expenditures exceeding
revenues by about $400,000. Also, the table was not totally complete, for example, no expenditure figures
were provided for Palm Bay and a few other small utilities. I will try to learn more about these figures over
the next few days.

Of interest in our District, the report shows the following:

City Revenue Exenditure


Cocoa 19,665,437

2,045,357
3,248,000
1,269,496

federal grants, state grants, water system S.S.R. (minimal) and impact fees. Expenditures listed are water
utility services and combined water/sewer utility services.
