OVERVIEW

Mid-Year Outlook Nearly five years from the height of the global financial crisis, the City’s revenues have rebounded and are seeing healthy increases. In the General Fund, sales taxes for the first five months of 2013 are 4.36% more than the same period last year. Auto use tax, another major revenue source, is 5.9% over the same period in 2012. Also indicative of the health of the City is the increase in building-related revenues. As the graph below illustrates, the number of single-family building permits in 2013 is outpacing the activity from 2012, which produced the second highest building-related revenues in the last ten years.

The increase in building activity is also a positive for the Water and Wastewater funds through the tap fees that are paid by developers as they connect to the City’s systems. The tap fees have almost doubled since this same time in 2012. Although tap fee revenue has increased, we must still focus attention on water revenue. Through the first six months of the year, water consumption is down over 18%. The decrease in water consumption is due to two factors. First, during the month of April, there were multiple snow storms providing much-needed precipitation to outdoor landscaping for many customers. Second, from April l to June 26, Denver Water imposed Stage 2 drought restrictions (which the City is required to adopt since it receives its water from Denver Water) that limited customers to a two-day-per-week watering schedule. In the second half of 2013, we expect to make a $36 million payment to Denver Water for the City’s participation in the Denver Water Moffat project, which, when finished, will provide the City up to 3,000 acre feet of water. The Arvada Center revenues are down 13% from the same period last year. The decrease can be attributed to the timing of the summer show. Expenditures appear to be slightly down from 2012. However, since the summer show had not ended by the close of the second quarter, not all expenditures are accounted for at this time. We will continue to review activities at the Arvada Center throughout the rest of the year.

Revenues from the Golf Fund are down 12% when compared to 2012. A wet spring and closures in the restaurants are the causes for the decline. Playable rounds rebounded in June, with the busiest June since 2008 at West Woods. With several months left in the season, the third quarter results will present a more complete picture of the Golf Fund. Overall, the financial picture of the City is positive. Resources in many funds are adequate to sustain services to our citizens and offer new infrastructure assets such as Ralston Central Park and Wolff Park. The City will see two new Community Stations towards the end of the year and work can be seen along the Gold Line, the rail system that will link the City to downtown Denver.

The number of single-family building permits in 2013 is outpacing the activity from 2012, which produced the second highest building-related revenues in the last ten years.

general fund

GENERAL FUND

General Fund Overview The General Fund pays for the City’s basic services. This includes police, street maintenance, planning, transportation planning, street light maintenance and costs, building activity and general administration. In addition, the General Fund also provides for the following: • Operational support to the Arvada Center • Operational support to the Parks Fund • General Debt Service payments • Transfer to the Capital Improvements Fund for new parks, transportation and other infrastructure projects The following table provides a comparison of budgeted cash balances, revenues and expenditures to budget and prior year amounts in the same areas. As the table illustrates, we began the year with $22,965,000 in cash reserves. We budgeted $67,932,479 in revenues and $68,866,754 in expenditures. Since expenditures exceeded revenues, Council made a decision in 2012 to use $934,275 of cash reserves to balance the 2013 budget. At the end of 2012, we also had $3,680,526 included in the fund balance for projects that were not completed in 2012. Since appropriations lapse at the end of the calendar year, there are requests to re-appropriate these monies in the next year. On April 1, Council approved the carryover ordinance for project funds that needed to be re-appropriated. These amounts are shown in the carryover section of the table.

Overall, the major revenue categories are continuing the positive trend. Sales tax growth is over 4% from the same period in 2012. Building use tax collections are at 88% of the 2013 budget due to continued building activity in the City. The major revenue categories of sales tax, use tax, property tax and intergovernmental revenues are discussed in more detail in the “Revenue Highlights” section. Investment returns show no movement, and will therefore be substantially short of budget estimates. The investment section at the end of this report will provide details of the City’s investments. Expenditures through six months in 2013 are less than expenditures in 2012. This is due to the one-time transfer of $500,000 to AEDA and a transfer of $1,083,333 to JPPHA for the purchase of land, both occurring in 2012. In addition, the timing of the transfer from the General Fund to the Capital Improvement Fund also accounts for the difference in expenditures. If the transfers are removed, expenditures are 6.6% more in 2013 than in 2012. This increase is expected as personnel-related expenditures were budgeted to increase 3.9% as a result of step and market increases and non-personnel related expenditures increased an average of 3%. In addition, the timing of street maintenance activities is occurring earlier in 2013 than in 2012. Budgeted expenditures also include one-time expenditures of $450,000 for the comprehensive plan and historical survey.

Revenue Highlights The following section highlights the sources generated to meet the operating expenditures of the General Fund. The City’s revenues come from many sources as illustrated in the graph below. Sales tax, use tax, property tax and intergovernmental revenues are the largest sources of revenue and are detailed in the next few pages. The remaining revenue sources consist of building permits, utility fees, fees we receive from other funds for general services, fees and fines, and miscellaneous revenues.

Sales Tax SALES TAX COLLECTIONS

Sales tax collections in 2013 are continuing the upward trend from 2012. The graph below shows actual sales tax collections from 2009 to 2013. Sales tax collections lag one month; therefore, collections through the second quarter represent sales tax collections for five months.

Use Tax

The City has three prime use tax types: general, building and automobile. These are taxes paid in lieu of sales tax on purchases.

USE TAX COLLECTIONS $8,000,000

General use tax is $128,000 over 2012 actuals through six months and is on pace to meet the budget of $1.2 million.

$7,000,000 $6,000,000 $5,000,000

Building use tax for 2013 is at $1.6 million, which will easily exceed the 2013 budget amount of $1.8 million. The ten-year financial plan anticipated growth, but not as quickly as we have seen in the past 18 months.

$4,000,000 $3,000,000 $2,000,000 $1,000,000 $0

Sales tax receipts for the first five months of 2013 are 4.36% above 2012 actuals. Sales tax collections are on track to exceed the 2013 budget of $38,589,803. Budgeted sales tax collections for 2013 represented a 3% increase over the 2012 budget. Because of increased sales tax collections in 2012, 2013 budgeted sales tax represents a 1.7% over 2012 actuals. As the next ten-year financial plan is reviewed, the sales tax base will be reset to reflect the 2012 actual collections.

Property Tax

The City’s property tax rate is 4.31 mills per $100 of valuation. In Colorado, the mill rate is placed on the assessed valuation. The following graph illustrates the year-to-date collections for the past four years and the current year.

PROPERTY TAX COLLECTIONS $5,000,000 $4,500,000 $4,000,000 $3,500,000

Property tax is a stable revenue source for the City. Currently, property tax receipts are $70,000 above the 2012 receipts for the first six months of the year, but may be slightly under the budget amount of $4.6 million.

$3,000,000 $2,500,000 $2,000,000 $1,500,000 $1,000,000 $500,000 $0 Property Tax

Auto use tax collections are showing a 5.9% increase over 2012 collections. Auto use tax collections are on track to exceed the 2013 budgeted amount of $4,580,610, which is a 7% increase over the 2012 budget.

Intergovernmental Revenues

INTERGOVERNMENTAL REVENUES

This category is made up of two revenue sources, Highway Users Trust Fund (HUTF), which is the City’s share of State-collected gas tax revenue, and Road and Bridge, which is the City’s share of property tax collected by Jefferson County and dedicated to the maintenance of roads and bridges. Combined, these revenues have averaged between $4.5 million and $4.7 million in the past five years and are budgeted for a little more than $4.7 million in 2013. Road and Bridge funds are disbursed quarterly. The graph shows the first disbursement received in April. The next disbursement will be received in July and we are on pace to meet budget for the year. HUTF funds are received monthly and the graph shows five months of revenue. These funds are fairly stable and are also on pace to meet budget.

Traffic Engineering, Streets, and Facilities Management represent the bulk of the increase in Temporary Wage expenditures. This spring’s repeated snow events hastened much of the rise in Overtime due to the need to plow. Despite these, as well as four high-impact retirements thus far in 2013, the General Fund is currently on pace to meet the budgeted Vacancy Savings total for 2013.

show positive revenue growth in 2013 versus 2012 by about $125,000.

Revenue Highlights The reduction in revenues from second quarter 2013 compared to second quarter 2012 reflect a timing difference in the summer show and the cancellation of one of our external partnerships. Legally Blonde ran during the month of June 2012 where Curtains will run during the month of July 2013. In addition, the Lone Tree Arts Center decided to not renew the contract for the traveling shows. The combined revenue for these two events was a little over $595,000. If you remove these, the Center would

Another positive is the subscription campaign. The 2013 campaign started a month earlier, in March, versus 2012. This has led to an increase of 6% over 2012. The trend looks like it will hold and it will represent the first time in five years that sales have not been flat or lower.

Expense Highlights The same timing difference related to the theater shows and the Lone Tree traveling show exists with expenditures but not at the same level. Many of the expenditures for the show Curtains have been processed and paid in June. Items such as set build, rehearsals and lighting design have already hit for about $292,000. Royalties and day-of-show costs will show in July. Taking out these expenses, overall expenditures are about $130,000 greater than in 2012. Curtains was the first show for which the Center used its new proactive approach to cost reductions and the hope is that there will be savings without effecting quality.

A majority of the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District (SCFD) grant contributions are received in the second half of the year. Current contributions are up 14% over last year. This trend will be one that we keep an eye on as the budget only calls for a 3% increase. As the economy improves, the pot of money should increase as the source of this grant funding is sales tax-based. There is increased competition each year from other arts and cultural facilities, but the Arvada Center continues to be the leader in the TIER 2 institutional category for funding.

Revenue Highlights Jefferson County Open Space receipts, which represent the largest source of revenue for the Parks Fund, continue to trend up nearly 6% over 2012 during the same period. However, year-to-date receipts reflect four months of revenue as this revenue source lags by two months. In addition, the City receives a reimbursement from the APEX Park and Recreation District for maintenance of athletic-type parks such as StengerLutz. Those funds will not be received until the end of the year. Other revenue decreased due to lower interest income, but was partially offset by increased rental income. Overall, total revenue increased 3.77%.

Expenditure Highlights While temporary personnel increased just under 11% from mid-year 2012, there was an offset by a decrease in contract services resulting in an net decrease of approximately 12%. Ongoing operating expenditures such as supplies, expenses and utilities experienced an increase; however, total year-todate expenditures decreased 5.15%.

There are two tax increment funds which account for the voterapproved sales tax increases to fund expanded police services. The first fund accounts for the .21 cent sales tax for police services and the second accounts for the .25 cent sales tax. Sources in the tax increment fund include sales tax, general use tax, auto use tax, building use and interest income. Since the tax increment is in addition to the City’s 3% sales tax, the revenue trends in the tax increment fund will closely follow those in the general fund.

capital improvement CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT FUND

Capital Improvement Fund Overview The Capital Improvement Fund is where the City keeps track of capital projects for streets, traffic, parks, and the Arvada Center.

Revenue Highlights In 2013, the majority of the revenue in the CIP Fund will consist of transfers from the General Fund, Risk Management Fund and Lands Dedicated Fund. Other revenues include park development fees, grant revenue and contributions from other governmental agencies. The revenues also include a onetime transfer of $2,500,000 from the General Fund for the Gold Line improvements.

Expenditure Highlights Although CIP expenditures in 2013 are less than 2012, there are still many CIP projects in various stages of construction. CIP Administration projects include construction at Ralston Central Park and expenditures for the City’s FOCUS process. Transportation projects include Ridge Road improvements, bridge repairs and design work for the Kipling Parkway Underpass. The majority of expenditures in the Parks area include construction at Forest Springs and tap fees for Big Meadows. Projects completed at the Arvada Center include the Gallery floor, the sound system and purchases of public art.

Projects in 2013 include Ralston Central and Forest Springs Parks. In addition, video security, front entry repair and exterior lighting projects will all address safety issues at the Arvada Center.

Over $36 million of the Capital budget represents the first major payment to Denver Water for the Gross Reservoir Expansion project. The timing of main replacement work & payments accounts for elevated Major Capital Maintenance Expenditures. Also, the Water Fund began budgeting this year for the annual transfer of revenue dedicated for Parks purposes, adding an additional $235,196 in budgeted Ongoing Expenditures for 2013. Previously, these transfers were appropriated through budget amendments.

Year-to-date revenue from water sales is down 12.7%, with consumption down 18.6% over the same period in 2012. This decline can be attributed to Stage 2 water restrictions and anticipated surcharges, as well as high levels of spring precipitation. It is worth noting that 2012 saw substantially elevated consumption levels. Compared to average year-to-date consumption for 2007-2011, 2013 totals were down only 4.2%. The spike in Other Revenues is due to a payment received from the Jefferson Center Metropolitan District (JCMD).

Reflective of the incredible pace of residential building activity within the City, tap fee revenues through June have nearly doubled over 2012. The year-to-date drop in Sewer Charge Revenue is due to the timing of receipts.

Expenditure Highlights Costs for the purchase of a new Manhole Spray Lining System and associated maintenance materials represent the vast majority of the increase in ongoing expenditures. The timing of payments for sewer main replacements represents the increase in Major Capital Maintenance. Charges from the Metro Wastewater Reclamation District, which are up over 10%, continue to represent nearly two-thirds of all expenditures.

Rounds in the Metro area were down 28% through May (Golf Datatech). Additionally, the cold spring coming after the winter drought left course conditions behind what they were in 2012. Winter green fee discounts had to be extended well beyond what they were in 2012. Golf cart restrictions continued into May. On a positive note, June saw better weather and improved course conditions. West Woods realized an 8% round increase over 2012 and at 8,422 rounds, was the busiest June since 2008.

Revenue Highlights Banquet and conference-related revenue continues to decline 15.6% in comparison to 2012. This variance is due in part to the number of organizations responding to internal scheduling conflicts or the need to rotate demographically for their organization. Additionally the facility was closed for one month for repairs. Concession revenue also experienced a decrease from 2012 by 17.6% Overall revenue decreased 13.8% from mid-year 2012.

Expenditure Highlights Total actual expenditures decreased from first quarter 2012 by 12.6% which would be expected as operating expenditures such as inventory and temporary wages are dependent upon the number of banquets that are booked. Through six months, revenues are sufficient to cover expenditures. However, expenditures are expected to increase due to the capital replacement projects which will be completed in 2013. The capital expenditures are funded through the fund balance.

The Insurance Fund, administered by the Risk Management Division of Finance, provides the means by which the City self-insures against loss. It is funded with contributions by all City divisions based on their levels and types of exposure. The Fund is also used for programs for loss prevention, the protection of City personnel and the preservation of City property and assets.

Revenue Highlights Due to continuing trends of relatively low claims costs and an effective focus on safety, charges to participating funds were reduced by nearly 13% for 2013. Higher year-to-date recovered costs account for the greater Other revenue.

Expenditure Highlights Year-to-date reductions in both Workers Compensation and General Liability claims expenditures represent the bulk of the drop in Administration expenditures. Of note, the Risk Management Administration budget includes a $573,500 transfer to the Capital Projects Fund for three safety-related projects at the Arvada Center in 2013: video security, front entry repair, and exterior lighting improvements. *Per GASB Statement 10, an additional $935,705 in cash is currently held in the Risk Management Fund to cover potentially incurred liabilities as of the beginning of the year. This figure was reached by Risk Management’s actuary.

investment report

CITY OF ARVADA INVESTMENT REPORT

Investment Portfolio Objectives Pursuant to the City’s investment policy, the primary objectives of the City’s investment activities, in priority order are safety, liquidity and yield. Consistent with this policy, the portfolio of securities is invested in US Treasuries, US Agency debt, local government investment pools (LGIP’s), commercial paper, and corporate debt subject to rating and concentration limits. The City’s investment portfolio is managed to provide sufficient liquidity to meet all reasonably anticipated operating cash needs without selling securities prior to maturity.

Investment Portfolio Performance The portfolio saw a second quarter 2013 yield of .423% which is a decrease of 29bps when compared to the second quarter 2012 yield of .647%. The benchmark yield for the City’s portfolio, as established by the investment policy, is a weighted benchmark of allowable securities. For the second quarter, the weighted benchmark return was .37 percent, constructed using the average 2013 monthly returns. The City’s portfolio yield continued to decline from the previous rolling four quarters, as evidenced by the considerable reduction in investment income and the unfavorable reinvestment environment. One contributing factor to these performance results is that the Fed has left rates at very low levels. The discount rate remains at .25 percent and the Fed has announced that we will continue to experience these rates most likely into 2015. The Federal Reserve will keep rates unchanged until the dynamics of our economy significantly change. The portfolio saw $51 million in investment calls during the first half of the year due to the expiration of call “lockout” periods. These calls have resulted in reinvestment in lower yielding securities which contributes to the reduction in investment income. Balances in LGIP funds have increased due to the anticipated cash outflow of $36 million during third quarter 2013 for the Denver Water Project. Key information regarding the City’s portfolio is shown in the tables and graphs below:

Investment Management Focus - 2013 2013 continues to be a struggle for the capital markets. We will continue to monitor the two items of focus we have highlighted below. Diversification of Maturities: We will continue to keep LGIP balances at levels to meet operating needs to capture attractive interest rates. We will focus on a blended strategy which calls for emphasis in short-term positions as well as long-term positions (5 years in the City’s case), but also staggering maturities in between to smooth the revenue stream. This will allow ample cash should the City experience unexpected needs, allow us to take advantage of better coupons in longer maturity buckets and the ability to capitalize on investment opportunities if/when yields begin to recover. Agency spreads are tighter, callables will get better yield: Call provisions are a tool used by issuers to refinance debt at a more attractive rate. Our focus will be to purchase callable securities with a call “lockout” period of six months or more to enhance investment income over the LGIP funds, which are currently yielding 13bps.
