2012 OVERVIEW

2012 Overview The completion of the fourth quarter of 2012 was positive, much like the previous three quarters. Sales tax receipts finished the year 5.86% higher than 2011 and automobile use tax was 10.7% over 2011 following the nation’s trend of increased automobile purchases. The City issued 321 single-family permits compared to 125 in 2011. (See the following graph.)

We see the benefits of increased building activity in the General Fund, Water and Wastewater Funds. In the General Fund, building use tax, building permit fees and plan review fees totaled $4.5 million in 2012, a $1.1 million increase over 2011. Water and Wastewater tap fees also increased in 2012 and are used for capital improvements in both funds.

golf cart fleet from gas to electric and to provide a face lift to both the clubhouse and restaurants at Lake Arbor and West Woods started in 2012 and will be finished by the first quarter of 2013. The Internal Service Funds that account for the costs of the City’s insurance, vehicle purchases and maintenance, computer purchases and maintenance and building maintenance all have healthy funds balances and are accumulating monies to replace assets based on a planned replacement schedule. Major purchases in 2012 included a new telephone system, replacement of some police vehicles with the new Ford Interceptors, and seal coats of the parking lots at City Hall, the Annex and the Arvada Center.

The Tax Increment Funds also reported increases in sales and use tax receipts similar to the General Fund. The fund balance in these funds is adequate to fund the two police substations that are planned in 2013, while still meeting the reserve goal of 11%. The City’s three utilities, Water, Wastewater and Stormwater, all ended 2012 on a positive note. City residents used over 5.764 billion gallons of water in 2012 compared to 5.049 billion gallons of water in 2011 due to the exceptionally dry spring and summer. Total revenues in the Water Fund increased by $3.6 million over 2011, generated by higher water consumption and tap fees. In 2012, we also expected that initial payments for the Denver Water Moffat Water project would be due. This project was delayed, but we are now expecting that payments will start in 2013 upon approval of necessary permits for this project. The Wastewater Fund revenues also exceeded 2011 revenues by $1.1 million, resulting from increased sewer tap fees and sewer charges. Expenditures were in line with the budget. However, there are some timing issues with sewer main replacement work for the Gold Line, which we will need to re-appropriate in 2013 in order to complete the project. The focus of the Stormwater Fund in 2012 was the Garrison Street Bridge and channelization projects. We expected to spend $9.8 million in 2012. At the end of 2012, only $5.5 million was paid, so there will also be monies that require re-appropriation in 2013. This project is expected to be completed in the spring of 2013.

The only dim light in the financial pictures is the level of interest earnings. As in the previous two years, the City’s interest revenues continue to fall. However, due to the low interest rate environment, the City will be able to refinance the outstanding Series 2003 Sales and Use Tax Bonds in the first quarter of 2013. Refinancing these bonds will enable the City to realize over $500,000 in savings through decreased debt service payments. Fitch assigns a “AAA” rating to the 2013 Sales and Use Tax Bonds based on the City’s strong financial position, characterized by large reserves, ample liquidity, and resilient revenue sources. As we close the books for 2012, the story of the City’s finances is a positive one. We completed the City’s first ten-year financial plan, emphasizing the strategy of Taking Lasting Care, Building on the Base and Building for the Future. There are many programs and projects that are currently underway and planned for the future that will prepare the City for the upcoming changes with police community substations, the arrival of the Gold Line, and completion of the Northwest area of the City. The ten-year plan, along with the City’s conservative budgeting philosophy, will help to ensure that services to the citizens are maintained.

2012 was also a good year for the Golf Fund. Revenues are $510,000 higher than 2011. Rounds of play were up 11.5%. The additional revenues in the Golf Fund helped to fund some needed capital maintenance items of the courses. The projects to convert the entire

As the table illustrates, we began the year with a $23,065,000 fund balance and, after completing the ten-year financial plan, anticipated ending 2012 with a fund balance of $19,098,920. Expenditures increased due to unfinished projects in the 2011 calendar year. Since appropriations lapse at the end of the calendar year, there are requests to re-appropriate these monies in the next year to complete the projects. On May 7, 2012 the Council approved the carryover ordinance for projects that needed to be re-appropriated. These amounts are added to the 2012 budgeted expenditures. In addition, on December 3, 2012, Council approved a supplemental appropriation that added $541,352 for unexpected expenditures incurred throughout the year. At the end of 2012, city staff reviewed the 2012 project budgets and determined there were monies in the 2012 budget for projects that will be completed in 2013 that totaled $1,180,526. The majority of these funds relate to JPPHA ($910,000) and completion of a small section of the street maintenance project that could not be completed in 2012 ($163,721). In addition, during the capital improvement planning process, Council set aside $11,500,000 for Gold Line parking requirements. $9,000,000 was a loan from the Wadsworth corridor monies, $1,500,000 from RTD, and $2,500,000 from the excess fund balance from 2012. These amounts are shown in the table as “Money Dedicated for 2013” and will be presented for Council’s approval in the carryover ordinance in April.

Revenue Highlights The following section highlights the sources generated to meet the operating expenditures of the General Fund. The City’s revenue comes from many sources as illustrated in the graph below. Information about sales tax, use tax, property tax and intergovernmental revenues is detailed in the next few pages.

Use Tax

Grocery chain sales, which are a stable sales tax resource in the City, grew 10.8% in 2012, due to the renovation of a large grocery store and the opening of a new store. We have also seen an increase in all three categories of fast food, fast casual and restaurants, showing that people are spending more money on eating out. General department stores also showed an increase of 5.47% over 2011. The only area of concern was the utilities category, which decreased 2.72% from 2011, showing the effects from the warm winter temperatures.

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 $9,000,000 $8,000,000

Nationally, vehicles sales were up in 2012 and the City saw the same trend as auto use tax increased 10.7% over 2011 collections. In 2012, the City saw the largest number of single family permits issued in the last five years which contributed to strong building use tax collections. General use tax was a concern throughout 2012, finishing the year down about 6.5% from the budget estimates.

Property Tax The City’s property tax rate is 4.31 mills per $100 of valuation. In Colorado, the mill is placed on the assessed value. Property tax collections in 2012 were $49,624 less than budget. While this is a small amount of the overall City revenue, 7%, it is a very stable source of revenue for the City.

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 a little over $4.5 million in the past three years. In 2012, we received $4.67 million or about 1% less than our budget. Both revenue sources were up from 2011 and we think this is a sustainable trend. Costs of street maintenance do continue to escalate. In 2011, we saw asphalt related items rise 12% . This trend continues in 2012, with an average of a 9% increase. As costs continue to rise, added pressure is put on other revenue sources to help fill in the increasing shortage.

All Other Revenue Sources As the pie chart of General Fund Revenues illustrates, 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. Investment interest earnings fall under the miscellaneous category and in the past were a healthy source of revenue. Since the onset of the Great Recession, interest earnings continue to fall and in 2012 generated about $273,000. The last section of this report reviews the investment portfolio in detail.

Expenditure Highlights The largest expenditure in the General Fund is personnel costs which account for 51% of expenditures.

With a Mission “to inspire the residents of our region to live and learn creatively by experiencing the performing arts, visual arts, educational programs, and historical exhibits”, the Arvada Center continues to focus on partnerships, collaboration, and innovation to maintain and increase programming, audience base and revenue. The Mission of the Center requires constant vigilance and balance between and amongst commercially viable, revenue-producing productions, classes, and workshops and reduced cost and free offerings, as well as community-focused and accessible programs. In 2012, the Arvada Center gained recognition for a number of accomplishments and new initiatives. The Performing Arts Division won the Henry Award for Best Season by a Theater Company, the Education Division introduced Spring Break Camps to the area and had a resounding success, and the Galleries completed one of their most ambitious and recognized series of exhibitions in the 37-year history of the Arvada Center, just to name a few.

The Center’s impact on the community and the region continues to grow through summer programming, collaboration, and partnerships. The relationships continued with Creede Repertory Theatre, Lone Tree Arts Centers, and numerous other cultural institutions. In addition, the Center, with the support of the City Council, embarked on a process to examine the overall structure of the Center and determine if there may be a better way to move the Center forward in the coming years. This effort has taken shape in the form of the Ad Hoc Task Force, meeting throughout the spring of 2013. 2012 was a volatile year for revenues at the Center. Due to this volatility, the Center did request and receive a supplemental

8


appropriation to address a shortfall in revenues. The Center requested $300,000; however, after all year-end revenues and expenditures were accounted, the final amount needed was $200,970. The primary reason for the financial gap is reduced revenue as overall expenditures grew by only 2%. Revenue did grow by 7.66% and 9% in Education and Development, respectively, in 2012, but the largest driver in the revenue gap was performing arts. Performing arts revenue was down 6.6% in 2012. Specifically, two major musicals performed below expectations. The musicals, Chess (part of the 2011 – 2012 theater season) and Dirty Rotten Scoundrels (part of the 2012 – 2013 SCFD Revenue theater season) combined to perform approximately $225,000 below initial projections. With regard to Chess, only 71% of the capacity of the theater was $1,200,000 sold. This was primarily due to a lack of single ticket $1,000,000 $800,000 sales as compared to other shows during the 2011 – $600,000 2012 season. With regard to Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, $400,000 only 60% of capacity was utilized. Dirty Rotten $200,000 Scoundrels was very well received by audiences and $0 critics; however, ticket sales were very slow. This was 2009 2010 2011 2012 experienced throughout the region at theaters and concert venues this fall. It should be noted that there were several specific cost reductions made to the production of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, including a decrease in the number of actors cast (from 30 to 23); however, the decrease was not enough to offset the subpar sales. In addition to a lack of single ticket sales, subscriptions for the 2012 – 2013 season are down as compared to 2011-2012. With a supplemental appropriation of $200,000 in 2012, the total cash operating support given to the Arvada Center by the General Fund was $1,843,000. Last year that support was $1,643,000, City of Arvada Contributions and over the last six (6) years that support has averaged approximately $1,870,000. $4,000,000 $3,500,000 $3,000,000 $2,500,000

special revenue funds SPECIAL REVENUE FUNDS

Special Revenue Funds Overview Special Revenue Funds account for revenues that are to be used for specific purposes. The following are considered special revenue funds: • Tax Increment Funds • Community Development • Housing

Tax Increment Funds Overview 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.

Revenue Highlights Revenue numbers continue to steadily increase through year-end 2012 with Sales Tax/Audit revenue up 5.66%, from $5,664,005 in 2011 to $5,984,582 in 2012. Use Tax revenue was up 10% over 2011 actuals, from $1,172,604 in 2011 to $1,291,014 in 2012. Recovered Costs in 2012 (onetime miscellaneous reimbursements from outside agencies) continued to decline over 22% through the end of 2012.

Expenditure Highlights Salaries and benefits increased 7.92% over 2011. Police Officer positions are filled at 96%. Total actual expenditures for year-end 2012 are at 99.39% of budget. The fund balance increased $524,232 in 2012. However, we will see the fund balance decrease in 2013 with the construction of two police community substations.

The Loans line item provides for appropriation in the event that opportunities arise for assistance related to multifamily housing. Since no such opportunities arose in 2012, the Loans line had no expenditures. Among the ongoing expenditures is funding for primary nonprofits who serve disadvantaged Arvada residents each year. Additionally, a considerable amount of federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funding has been reserved for use reconstructing Memorial Neighborhood Park in 2013.

The City directly receives funding from Energy Outreach Colorado (EOC), a nonprofit corporation, and disburses it to low income residents of Arvada as assistance with costs related to energy. In 2011 and 2012, the City has received supplemental funding from EOC, which accounts for the increase in dollars and grants over the past two years.


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 2012, the majority of the revenues in the Capital Improvement Project (CIP) fund consisted of transfers from the General Fund, Construction Fund and Lands Dedicated Fund. Other revenues include park development fees, grant revenue and contributions from other governmental agencies.

Expenditure Highlights The majority of expenditures in this fund in 2012 relate to the construction of various park projects. Some of the park projects include Wolff, Forest Springs, Sunrise Ridge, Saddlebrook, Four Acre and Thundercloud parks. Park staff also completed the Shelter at Indiana Esquestrian and 80th Avenue medians as well as renovations of Davis Lane and Westwoods parks. Two major transportation projects included the Olde Town streetscape project and the Sheridan bridge. There was also the purchase of land needed for parking at the future Olde Town station for the Gold Line.

Reserved Funds The CIP fund ended 2012 with a fund balance of $39 million and has confirmed grant revenues of $4 million that will be received upon completion of the projects. Reserved projects total approximately $43 million.

ENTERPRISE FUNDS

Enterprise Funds Overview Enterprise funds account for activities that generate a fee that makes the entity self supporting. The five enterprise funds in the City are: • • • • •

Water Fund Wastewater Fund Stormwater Fund Golf Fund Hospitality Fund

Water Fund The Water Fund accounts for all activities within the scope of the water utility operations including administration, operations, capital water projects, financing and related debt service and billing and collection.

Revenue Highlights Annual revenues from water sales were up by 14.0% over 2011 totals, with consumption up 14.1% over the same period.

Expenditure Highlights The substantial difference between the Capital budget and the Capital expenditures stems from Gross Reservoir. For 2012, the City had budgeted $2.5 million for Gross Reservoir Expansionrelated costs, but the project saw no City expenditures for the year. As for the Major Capital Maintenance budget, approximately $300,000 of Gold Line-related water main work in railroad rightof-way planned for 2012 will be completed and billed in 2013. Delays and postponements related to other planned 2012 projects account for the remaining budget-to-actual difference.

Water Bonds Fitch Ratings performed an annual review of the Water Enterprise Bonds, Series 2009, and affirmed the “AAA” rating for these bonds. In arriving at the stable outlook for the Water Enterprise Bonds, Fitch cited a strong financial profile, low debt levels, solid management and a stable local economy as key rating drivers.

Wastewater Tap Fees This chart shows a history of annual wastewater tap fee collections since 2008. As with water tap fee collections, the substantial increase in 2012 reflects the considerable increase in residential building activity. Due to its location, the Arvada Station development falls within the City’s wastewater system, but its water service is provided by the Valley Water District. This is a reason for the greater increase in wastewater tap fee collections in 2012 as compared to water tap fee collections.

Revenue Highlights In August, $1.98 million was transferred from the Drainage Fund to the Stormwater Fund. These funds, comprised of Unit Drainage Fees (or UDFs, last collected in 2003) and interest, reimbursed the Stormwater Fund for work completed by the Stormwater Utility within the drainage basins for which the UDFs were paid. In addition, the City received just over $600,000 in reimbursements from the Urban Drainage and Flood Control District (UDFCD) for drainage improvements associated with the Garrison Street Bridge Replacement.

Expenditure Highlights Costs related to the replacement of the Garrison Street Bridge and related channelization on Ralston Creek represented nearly 58% of all Stormwater expenditures in 2012. As of the end of 2012, the Stormwater Utility’s Garrison project was over 50% done. However about $4,379,000 will need to be carried over into the 2013 budget. Due to some add-ons to the project, completion is expected in April 2013, weather permitting. An additional $800,000 was spent on the City’s share of costs pertaining to the Ridge Road Tributary pursuant to an IGA with UDFCD and the City of Wheat Ridge.

Revenue Highlights Total earned revenue from Golf and Restaurant operations increased 12% over 2011 actuals, from $3,807,574 to $4,266,105, a difference of $458,531. Revenue growth was fueled by an 11.5% increase in total rounds played at city golf courses: 104,281 in 2012 compared to 93,533 in 2011. West Woods Golf Club was named Best Golf Course in Jefferson County in a Colorado Community Media reader’s poll.

Expenditure Highlights Total actual expenditures increased $33,650 in 2012, from $4,050,682 in 2011 to $4,084,332 in 2012 as the increase in Golf and Restaurant revenues were re-invested into turf maintenance and capital improvements projects, most notably a new maintenance building at West Woods Golf Club and the conversion from gas to electric golf cart fleet. These projects were not completed in 2012 and monies necessary to complete them will be carried forward to 2013.

The majority of replacement monies spent in 2012 were related to the replacement of the current phone system software with a VoIP -based Unified Communication System (UCS). The project cost was $807,000 and was completed on time with minimal impact to the City’s workflow. Both the computer replacement and maintenance lines are below budget as the CAD, Records Management System upgrade and budget software replacement scheduled in 2012 have been delayed until 2013. $1,138,000 for those projects will be carried forward into 2013.

The Computer Fund provides resources for both the ongoing maintenance and replacement of the City’s computers, network hardware, and other electronic infrastructure. It is funded with contributions by all City divisions based on their levels of use of information technology. The Print Shop Fund provides ongoing capital support for the City’s printing needs.

REVENUES

Total Revenues

Revenue Highlights Print Shop revenues and expenses are both well below projections. However, revenues exceed expenditures by $32,973.

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 are 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 yield of .724% in 2012 compared to 1.119% in 2011. The benchmark yield for the City’s portfolio, as established by the investment policy, is a weighted benchmark of allowable securities. For the year, the weighted benchmark return was .41 percent, constructed using the average 2012 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 remained constant throughout 2012 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 $86.7 million in investment calls due to the expiration of call “lockout” periods, these calls resulted in reinvestment in lower yielding securities which contributes to the reduction in investment income. The portfolio increased approximately $874 thousand from December, 2011 to December, 2012. LGIP balances were reduced $21.5 million during the year with investment focused in the two to four year maturity range of the curve by purchasing securities with a six month or greater “lockout” period to earn a better than average coupon before the lockout period expired. During 2012, the City invested in a money market fund which is available to Colorado Public entities, this fund provides a yield approximately 2 basis points higher than the local government investment pools. An indirect benefit to the Arvada portfolio has been the capital appreciation that has been attained in this time, even though this is considered as “paper gains” and has no profound affect on the yield we use to benchmark, the gain in 2012 was $452,870.

Investment Management Focus - 2013 2012 continued 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 the 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.
