Cash Flows
! The Treasurer reviewed historical cash flow need through the first quarter of
the fiscal year and indicated the following:
! Funds should be sufficient to cover all cash flow needs through the month of August
! Excludes anticipated revenues/reimbursements from the State and Federal pass-through
! Excludes the use of the 10% reserve - $15,949,166 for FY 2015 and $16,622,908 for FY 2015
! Drops all accounts to required minimums
! The need for use of a short-term loan or access to the 10% reserve would most
likely occur in September
! Cash flows will be further restrained if the annual PPTRA state payment is not
received in November, approximately $10.2 million
