J$ltcl:fntt. <Htu:ttr..JJS4.84
December 20, 2011
To the Honorable Mayor, Members of the Board of Aldermen,
And the Citizens of the City of Shelton
State law requires that every general-purpose local government publish within six months of the close of
each fiscal year a complete set of audited financial statements. The report is published to fulfill that
requirement for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2011.
Management assumes full responsibility for the completeness and reliability of the information
contained in this report, based upon a comprehensive frame-work of internal control that it has
established for this purpose. Because the cost of internal controls should not exceed anticipated
benefits, the objective is to provide reasonable, rather than absolute, assurance that the financial
statements are free of any material misstatements.
Levitsky & Berney P.C., Certified Public Accountants, have issued a qualified opinion of the C,ity of
Shelton's financial statements for the year ended June 30, 2011 because an independent actuary did not
complete a report on the post-employment benefits other than pension. The independent auditor's
report is located at the front of the financial section of this report.
Description of the Municipality
The City of Shelton (formerly known as Huntington) was incorporated in 1789 from Stratford as a town
and incorporated in 1919 as a City. Comprised of 31.4 square miles in northern Fairfield County,
contiguous to Stratford, Trumbull and Monroe to the Southwest and Derby, Orange and Milford lie
across the Housatonic River to the Northeast.
Form of Government
The City of Shelton operates under a Charter established in 1919, which was most recently revised in
1994. The City operates under a Mayor/Aldermen form of government. The Mayor is the Chief
Executive Officer of the City with all the executive powers, duties and responsibilities that the State
general statutes provide, as well as those assigned under the City Charter. The Mayor appoints the
Parks and Recreation Commission, the Administrative Assistant, Corporate Counsel, the Director of
Public Works, the Welfare Director, the Chairman of the Board of Fire Commissioners, and the Civil
Preparedness Director. The Mayor presides at the meetings of the Board of Aldermen and the Board of
Apportionments and Taxation but votes only to resolve a tie vote.
In addition to all powers granted to towns and cities under the constitution and general statutes of the
State of Connecticut, the City Board of Alderman, an eight member body, acts as the City's legislative
body which has specific powers to be executed through the enactment and enforcement of ordinances
and by-laws which protect or promote the peace, safety, good government and welfare of the City and
its habitants. The Board also has the power to provide for the organization, conduct, and operation of
the departments, agencies and offices of the City; for the number, titles qualifications, powers, duties
and compensation of all officers and employees of the City; and for the making of rules and regulations
necessary for the control, management and operation of all public buildings, grounds, parks, cemeteries
or other property of the City. Two members are elected for each of the City's four voting districts to
two-year terms. The board meets on a monthly basis.
The Board of Apportionment and Taxation consists of six elected members. The Board is responsible for
certain budgetary matters, including review of the Mayor's proposed budget and submittal to the Board
of Alderman of the recommended budget and mill rate.

Economic Conditions and Development
The City of Shelton works in partnership with the private sector and local residents and stakeholders to
retain its competitive advantage. Growth has continued in Shelton through the recent economic
downtown with significant future growth anticipated. Strategic investments are regularly made in
Shelton's infrastructure and in particular in the downtown revitalization area to respond to business and
job growth objectives. Shelton recognizes the value of "Smart Growth" planning and development
principles.
The City's manufacturing heritage traces to the late 1600's and was focused about the resources of the
Housatonic River. By 1880 over twelve manufacturing firms were located in the Canal Street Area. Over
time, Shelton transitioned from a manufacturing center to a more diverse economic base. Today,
Shelton is home to over 1,400 businesses of all sizes. The manufacturing sector has been bolstered by
the healthcare, insurance and financial services industries. Over 150 businesses are headquartered or
have significant corporate facilities within the City of Shelton. Prominent names include Pitney Bowes,
Pitney Bowes Credit Corporation, Perkin Elmer, Sure Source, Wai-Mart, BIC, and most recently the
Hubbell Corporation. The City now boasts five major hotels.
The City's economic success owes much to its location, the availability of affordable land, a well-trained
workforce and stable finances. A network of interstate and state highways serve the City and five
ii
national and international airports are within approximately one hour drive. Deep-water ports are in
Bridgeport, New Haven and New York City. Also favoring Shelton are attractive workforce
demographics, a respectable school system, and consistent grand list growth, stable taxes and well
managed finances. The City adheres to a policy of amortizing all debt over a ten-year period to ensure
that its resources do not become over-leveraged.
Shelton's development points to a stable economy of consistent growth in all development sectors
(Commercial/industrial and residential). Shelton has been recognized for two consecutive years as the
most affordable community in Connecticut for businesses.
It is estimated that over 350 acres remain available for appropriate commercial and industrial
development in the City. Development is in accordance with a comprehensive plan of development to
ensure that the growth does not exceed the City's resources. The local Planning and Zoning Commission
continually reviews and updates its plans. The Planning and Zoning Commission is currently updating its
downtown revitalization component of the Plan of Development.
The Downtown Revitalization area is continuing to significantly attract new private investment with 103
condominiums recently completed and 250 rental units under construction.
The City has in place a "Fast Track" procedure to assist developers with appropriate City Approvals. All
economic development activity is coordinated under the direction of the Office of the Mayor. The
Mayor acts as the economic development director with the technical assistance provided by the Shelton
Economic Development Corporation (SEDC), a not for profit private/public partnership, and the City of
Shelton Economic Development Commission (EDC) which has been given the responsibility for the
development and implementation of the City's marketing program. The SEDC and the EDC prepares and
disseminates a community and business newsletter four times a year. The publication provides updates
on the community and business activities in the City.
Acknowledgements

The Honorable Mayor, the City Alderman and all concerned readers of this report, to provide
information in conformance with the highest standards of accountability.

INDEPENDENT AUDITOR'S REPORT
We have audited the accompanying financial statements of the governmental activities,
the business-type activities, each major fund, and the aggregate remaining fund
information of the City of Shelton, Connecticut, as of and for the year ended June 30,
2011, which collectively comprise the City's basic financial statements as listed in the
table of contents. These financial statements are the responsibility of the City of Shelton,
Connecticut's management. Our responsibility is to express opinions on these financial
statements based on our audit.
We conducted our audit in accordance with auditing standards generally accepted in the
United States of America and the standards applicable to financial audits contained in
Government Auditing Standards, issued by the Comptroller General of the United States.
Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable
assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. An
audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and
disclosures in the financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting
principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the
overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audit provides a reasonable
basis for our opinions.
Management has not provided for an independent actuarial report on the other post
employment benefits (OPES) that would be considered current for the fiscal year ended
June 30, 2011. Accounting principles accepted in the United States of America require
that such report would be necessary for proper disclosure and to accurately calculate the
net OPES obligation, which would affect the long-term liabilities in the governmental
activities of the government- wide financial statements. The affects these would have had
on the liabilities, net assets and expenses of the government-wide financial statements
were not reasonably determinable.
In our opinion, except for the effects of not providing an adequate calculation of the net
OPES obligation in the governmental activities of the government-wide financial
statements, as described in the preceding paragraph, the financial statements referred to
previously present fairly, in all material respects, the respective financial position of the
government wide financial statements of the City of Shelton as of June 30, 2011, and the
respective changes in financial position thereof for the year then ended in conformity with
accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

In addition, in our opinion, the financial statements referred to previously present fairly, in
all material respects, the respective financial position of the business-type activities, each
major fund, and the aggregate remaining information for the City of Shelton as of June 30,
2011 and the respective changes in financial position and where applicable, cash flows
thereof for the year then ended in conformity with accounting principles generally
accepted in the United States of America.
In accordance with Government Auditing Standards, we have also issued our report
December 20, 2011, on our consideration of the City of Shelton, Connecticut's internal
control over financial reporting and on our tests of its compliance with certain provisions of
laws, regulations, contracts and grant agreements and other matters. The purpose of that
report is to describe the scope of our testing of internal control over financial reporting and
compliance and the results of that testing and not to provide an opinion on the internal
control over financial reporting or on compliance. That report is an integral part of an audit
performed in accordance with Government Auditing Standards and should be considered
in assessing the results of our audit.
The management's discussion and analysis on pages 3a through 3g is not a required part
of the basic financial statements but is supplementary information required by accounting
principles generally accepted in the United States of America. We have applied certain
limited procedures, which consisted principally of inquiries of management regarding the
methods of measurement and presentation of the required supplementary information.
However, we did not audit the information and express no opinion on it.
Our audit was conducted for the purpose of forming opinions on the financial statements
that collectively comprise the City of Shelton, Connecticut's basic financial statements.
The introductory section, detailed budgetary information,· combining and individual non-
major fund financial statements, other supplemental information presented as schedules
and statistical tables are presented for purposes of additional analysis and are not a
required part of the basic financial statements. The budgetary information, the combining
and individual non-major fund financial statements, and the other supplemental
information presented as schedules, have been subjected to the auditing procedures
applied in the audit of the basic financial statements and, in our opinion, are fairly stated in
all material respects in relation to the basic financial statements taken as a whole. The
introductory and statistical sections have not been subjected to the auditing procedures
applied in the audit of the basic financial statements, and, accordingly, we express no
opinion on them.

CITY OF SHELTON, CONNECTICUT
MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS
JUNE 30, 2011
This discussion and analysis of the City of Shelton, Connecticut's (the City) financial performance is
provided by management to provide an overview of the City's financial activities for the fiscal year
ended June 30, 2011. Please read this MD&A in conjunction with the City's financial statements.
Financial Highlights
• Net assets of our governmental activities increased by $15.5 million
• Net assets of our business-type activities decreased by $.3 million
• The General Fund reported a fund balance this year of $12.35 million;
$3.1 million more than the general fund balance reported in the prior year
• The resources available for appropriation were $6.9 million more than
expended through the General Fund operating budget.
Overview of the Financial Statements
This annual report consists of a series of financial statements. The statement of net assets and the
statement of activities (Exhibits A and B, respectively) provide information about the activities of the
City as a whole and present a longer-term view of the City's finances. Fund financial statements are
presented in Exhibits C and D. For governmental activities, these statements tell how these services
were financed in the short term as well as what remains for future spending. Fund financial statements
also report the City's operations in more detail than the government-wide statements by providing
information about the City's most significant funds. In addition, beginning in fiscal year 2008, the City
maintains the water pollution control authority as a proprietary fund (Exhibit G, Hand 1). The remaining
statements provide financial information about activities for which the City acts solely as a trustee or
agent for the benefit of those outside of the government.
Government- Wide Financial Statements
The analysis of the City as a whole begins on Exhibits A and B. The statement of net assets and the
statement of activities reports information about the City as a whole and about its activities for the
current period. These statements include all assets and liabilities using the accrual basis of accounting,
which is similar to the accounting used by most private-sector companies. All of the current year's
revenues and expenses are taken into account regardless of when cash is received or paid.
These two statements report the City's net assets and changes in them. The City's net assets, the
difference between assets and liabilities, are one way to measure the City's financial health, or
financial position. Over time, increases or decreases in the City's net assets are one indicator of
whether its financial health is improving or deteriorating. The reader needs to consider other
nonfinancial factors, such as changes in the City's property tax base and the condition of the City's
capital assets, to assess the overall health of the City.
3a
In the statement of net assets and the statement of activities, the City reports its activities as follows:
• Governmental activities - The City's basic services are reported here, including general
government, public safety, community services, public works, education, public library and
municipal facilities. Property taxes, charges for services and state and federal grants
finance most of these activities.
• Business-type activities- The Water Pollution Control Authority's activity is reported here.
Fund Financial Statements
The fund financial statements begin with Exhibit C and provide detailed information about the most
significant funds - not the City as a whole. Some funds are required to be established by Charter.
However, the Board of Aldermen establishes many other funds to help control and manage
financial activities for particular purposes or to show that it is meeting legal responsibilities for using
grants and other money (like grants received for education from the State and Federal
governments). The City's funds are divided into three categories: governmental, proprietary and
fiduciary.
• Governmental funds (Exhibits C and D) - Most of the City's basic services are reported in
governmental funds, which focus on how money flows into and out of those funds and the
balances left at year-end that are available for spending. These funds are reported using an
accounting method called modified accrual accounting, which measures cash and all other
financial assets that can readily be converted to cash. The governmental fund statements
provide a detailed short-term view of the City's general government operations and the basic
services it provides. Governmental fund information helps you determine whether there are
more or fewer financial resources that can be spent in the near future to finance the City's
programs. The relationship (or differences) between governmental activities (reported in the
statement of net assets and the statement of activities) and governmental funds is described
in a reconciliation at the bottom of the fund financial statements.
• Proprietary funds (Exhibits G, H and I) - When the City charges customers for the services it
provides, whether to outside customers or to other units of the City, these services are
generally reported in proprietary funds. Proprietary funds are reported in the same way that all
activities are reported in the statement of net assets and the statement of activities. Internal
service funds (the component of proprietary funds) are used to report activities that provide
supplies and services for the City's other programs and activities, such as the City's Worker's
Compensation Internal Service Fund.
• Fiduciary funds (Exhibits J and K) - The City is the trustee, or fiduciary, for its employees'
pension plans. All of the City's fiduciary activities are reported in separate statements of
fiduciary net assets and changes in fiduciary net assets. These activities are excluded from
the City's other financial statements because the City cannot use these assets to finance its
operations. The City is responsible for ensuring that the assets reported in these funds are
used for their intended purposes.
3b
Government-Wide Financial Analysis
The analysis below focuses on the net assets (Table 1) and changes in net assets (Table 2) of the
City's governmental activities and business-type activities. The City's net assets for governmental
activities increased $16 million from $125 million in 2010 to $141 million in 2011.
The City's net assets for the business-type activities decreased $3 million for the fiscal year ending
June 30, 2011. The net assets went from $36.3 million at June 30, 2010 to $36.0 million at the end
of this fiscal year. The majority of this decrease can be attributed to a large increase in Transfers in
from other funds, which recognizes the City's payment to the Clean Water Fund loan on-behalf of
the W.P.C.A. Contributed Capital increased $.6 million mainly due to construction in progress for
upgrades to the waste water treatment plant.

City Funds Financial Analysis
Governmental Funds
As the City completed the year, its governmental funds (as presented in the balance sheet- Exhibit
C) reported a combined fund balance of $5.9 million which is a $12.9 million increase from the
previous year. Included in this year's total change in fund balance is an increase of $9.6 million in
the City's Capital Projects Fund. This is mainly due to the large ongoing school construction
project, which was mostly bonded by the end of the fiscal year. Fur;ther bonding will be completed
when the project is fully closed and audited by the State of Connecticut.
The general fund provided savings through the reduction of payroll, the reimbursement of highway
and bridges expenses through federal grants, and the savings from the Board of Education found
in the fringe benefit's unemployment. This savings in expenditures were netted against a better
than anticipated collection in taxes to produce a $6.9 million budgetary surplus. The $5.1 million of
the surplus was appropriated by the Board of Alderman to reduce taxes in the subsequent year's
budget and provide funding to the Perry School Project.
Proprietarv Funds
The City reports the Water Pollution Control Authority as a proprietary fund (Exhibit G, H, and 1).
Under this presentation, the operating loss was $324,876, mainly due to depreciation expense of
$2,215,412.
The Internal Service Fund recorded a negative change in net assets. Operating revenues were
less than operating expenses by $578,556. Management is aware of the $5.5 million deficit in this
fund and has a long term financing plan to fund this deficit through growing employer
contributions, reducing the worker's compensation expenses and reorganizing the funding
structure.
General Fund Budgetary Highlights
Exhibit F shows the summary information of budget to actual revenues, expenditures and
changes in undesignated, unreserved fund balance (funds available to be appropriated).
• Property tax collections were better than expected.

General obligation bonds (backed by the City)
Standard & Poor's reaffirmed its rating on the City's GO Bonds of "AA" from "A+" and its rating of
"SP-1+" on the City's G.O. BANS.
The S&P rating specified improved financial performance, a strong and diverse economic base,
continued property value growth, ongoing development of down town and riverfront properties,
wealth indicators above both State and national averages, low property tax rate compared to
surrounding municipalities and a low debt burden with rapid amortization.
Moody's Investors Service has reaffirmed an "Aa3" rating to the General Obligation Bonds and a
"MI G-1" rating to Bond Anticipation Notes. The ratings are primarily based upon the City's
demonstrated access to capital markets, a favorable trend of tax base expansion, modest debt
burden and a rapid retirement of outstanding obligations.
Other obligations include accrued vacation pay and sick leave. More detailed information about
the City's long-term liabilities is presented in Note 8 to the financial statements. Included in the
Business-type activities is $16,629,079 in notes payable, which was Clean Water Notes closed
during the fiscal year for the construction of the new water pollution control facilities.
ECONOMIC FACTORS AND NEXT YEAR'S BUDGETS AND RATES
The City's elected and appointed officials considered many factors when setting the fiscal-year 2012
budget tax rates. One of those factors is the economy.
These indicators along with a projected modest inflationary increase were taken into account when
adopting the General Fund budget for 2010-11. Amounts allocated for appropriation in the General
Fund budget of 2010-11 from current surplus is $4,393,096. Property taxes (benefiting from the
increase in Grand List allowed the City to maintain the same mill rate in 2010-2011 and reducing
the mill rate in the 2011-2012 budget.

Amounts reported for governmental activities in the statement of net assets (Exhibit A) are different because :
Capital assets used in the governmental activities are not financial resources and therefore, are not
reported in the funds.
Other long-term assets are not available to pay for current period expenditures, and, therefore,
are deferred in the funds.
Internal service funds are used by management to charge the costs of risk management to individual
funds. The assets and liabilities of the internal service funds are included in the governmental
activities column in the statement of net assets.
Long-term liabilities, including bonds payable, are not due and payable in the current period and
therefore are not reported in the funds.

RECONCILIATION OF THE STATEMENT OF REVENUES, EXPENDITURES
AND CHANGES IN FUND BALANCES (DEFICIT) OF GOVERNMENTAL FUNDS
TO THE STATEMENT OF ACTIVITIES
For the Year Ended June 30, 2011
EXHIBIT E
Differences in amounts reported for government wide activities in the Statement of Activities are due to:
Net change in fund balances - total governmental funds (Exhibit D)
Governmental funds report capital outlays as expenditures; however, in
the statement of activities the cost of those assets is allocated over their
estimated useful lives and reported as depreciation expense. This is the
amount by which capital outlays exceeded depreciation in the current period.
Revenues previously recognized in the statement of activities that provided
current financial resources in the current year.
The issuance of long-term debt (e.g., bonds, leases) provide current financial
resources to governmental funds, while the repayment of the principal of
long-term debt consumes the current financial resources of governmental
funds. Neither transaction, however, has any effect on net assets. Also,
governmental funds report the effect of issuance costs, premiums, discounts,
and similar items when debt is first issued, whereas these amounts are deferred
and amortized in the statement of activities. This amount is the net effect of
these differences in the treatment of long-term debt and related items.
The net expense of certain activities of internal service funds is reported with
governmental activities.

NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
June 2011
Note 1 - Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
Reporting Entity
The City of Shelton, Connecticut (the City) was settled in 1789 and incorporated as a City in
1919. It operates under an elected mayor and an eight-member Board of Alderman.
The City provides a full range of services including public safety, roads, sanitation, health, social
services, culture and recreation, education, planning, zoning and general administrative
services to its residents.
Measurement Focus, Basis of Accounting and Financial Statement Presentation
The financial statements of the City have been prepared in conformity with accounting principles
generally accepted in the United States of America as applied to government units. The
Governmental Accounting Standards Board (GASB) is the accepted standard setting board for
governmental accounting financial reporting principles. These principles require that the City
report government-wide and fund financial statements, which are described below.
Government-wide financial statements
The government-wide financial statements (i.e., the statement of net assets and the statement
of changes in net assets) report information on all of the non-fiduciary activities of the primary
government. Government activities, which is normally supported by taxes and
intergovernmental revenues, are reported separately than business-type activities, which rely to
a significant extent on fees and charges for support.
The statement of activities demonstrates the degree to which the direct expenses of a given
function or segment of, are offset by program revenues. Direct expenses are those that are
clearly identifiable with a specific function or segment. Program revenues include (1) charges to
customers or applicants who purchase, use or directly benefit from goods, services or privileges
provided by a given function or segment and (2) grants and contributions that are to
meeting the operational or capital requirements of a particular function or segment. Taxes and
other items not properly included among program revenues are reported instead as general
revenues.
The government-wide financial statements are reported using the economic resources
measurement focus and the accrual basis of accounting, as are proprietary fund and fiduciary
fund financial statements. Under this method, revenues are recorded when earned and
expenses are recorded at the time liabilities are incurred. Property taxes are recognized as
revenues in the year for which they are levied. Grants and similar items are recognized as
revenues as soon as all eligibility requirements imposed by the provider have been met.
-16-
CITY OF SHELTON, CONNECTICUT
NOTES TO THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS, Continued
June 30 2011
As a general rule, the effect of inter-fund activity, or internal balances, has been eliminated from
the government-wide financial statements. Exceptions to this rule are charges between the
business-type funds and the various other functions of the City. Elimination of these charges
would distort the direct costs and program revenues reported for the various functions.
Fund financial statements
Separate financial statements are provided for governmental funds, proprietary funds and
fiduciary funds even though the later are excluded from the government-wide financial
statements. Major individual governmental funds are reported as separate columns in the fund
financial statements.
The governmental fund financial statements are reported using the current financial resources
measurement focus and the modified accrual basis of accounting. Revenues are recognized as
soon as they are both measurable and available. Revenues are considered to be available
when they are collectible within the current period or soon enough thereafter to pay liabilities of
the current period. Expenditures are generally recorded when a liability has occurred, as under
accrual accounting. However expenditures related to long-term liabilities, such as debt service
payments and compensated absences, are recorded only when payment is due.
Property taxes are levied on all taxable assessed property on the grand list of October 1 prior to
the beginning of the fiscal year. Real estate taxes are payable in two installments (July 1 and
January 1). Personal property taxes are payable annually (July 1) and motor vehicle taxes are
due in one single payment on July 1. Liens are filed on delinquent real estate taxes within one
year. Revenues from property taxes are recognized when they become available. Available
means due, or past due, and receivable within the current period or expected to be collected
soon enough thereafter to be used to pay liabilities of the current period. For this purpose, the
City considers property tax revenue to be available if they are collected within 60 days of the
end of the fiscal year.
Those revenues susceptible to accrual are property taxes, special assessments and interest
revenue. Fines, permits and charges for services are not susceptible to accrual because
generally they are not measurable until received in cash.
Intergovernmental revenues grants and similar items are recognized as soon as all eligible
requirements imposed by the provider have been met and are collected soon enough to pay
liabilities of the current period. For this purpose, grants may be recognized and received after
60 days of the fiscal year end.

CITY OF SHELTON, CONNECTICUT
NOTES TO THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS, Continued
June 30 2011
The City reports the following major governmental funds:
The general fund is the general operating fund of the City's government. All
unrestricted resources, except those required to be accounted for in another fund, are
accounted for in this fund. From this fund are paid general operating expenditures, fixed
charges, principal and interest on long-term debt and capital improvement costs of the
City, which were not paid through a special fund.
The capital projects fund is used to account for resources used for capital
expenditures or for the acquisition or construction of capital facilities, improvements and
equipment. Most of the capital outlays are financed by the issuance of general obligation
bonds and capital grants. Other sources include current tax revenues and low interest
state loans.
The City reports the following major proprietary funds:
The Water Pollution Control Authority (W.P.C.A.) accounts for the operations of the
City's wastewater treatment system. The City operates its own sewage treatment plant,
sewage pumping stations and collection system. Its operations are financed from direct
charges to the users of the service.
Additionally, the City reports the following fund types:
The internal service fund account for employee heart and hypertension and workers'
compensation insurance provided to departments of the City.
The private-purpose trust fund is used to account for assets held by the City in a
trustee capacity or as an agent on behalf of others. An example includes the Plum
Memorial Library, which maintains the assets received through contributions, fees and
charges of the library.
The agency funds account for monies held as a custodian for outside groups and
agencies such as student activity funds, senior trip funds and performance bonds.
Private-sector standards of accounting anq financial reporting issued prior to December 1, 1989,
generally are followed in both the government-wide and the enterprise funds reported in the
proprietary fund financial statements to the extent that those standards do not conflict with or
contradict guidance of the Governmental Accounting Standards Board. Governments also have
the option of following subsequent private-sector guidance for their government-wide and
propriety fund financial statements subject to this same limitation. The City has elected not to
follow subsequent private-sector guidance.
-18-
CITY OF SHELTON, CONNECTICUT
NOTES TO THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS, Continued
June 30 2011
Proprietary funds distinguish operating revenues and expenses from non-operating items.
Operating revenues and expenses generally result from providing services in connection with a
proprietary fund's principal ongoing operations.
The principal operating revenues of the proprietary funds are charges to customers for services.
Operating expenses for enterprise and internal service funds include the cost of operations and
maintenance, provisions for doubtful accounts, and depreciation on capital assets. All revenues
and expenses not meeting this definition are reported as non-operating revenues and expenses.
Assets, Liabilities and Net Assets or Equity
Cash and cash equivalents
The City considers cash on hand, deposits and short-term investments, with an original maturity
of three months or less, to be cash and cash equivalents.
Investments
Investments are stated at the fair value using quoted market prices.
Inventories
Inventories are stated at the lower of cost or market using the consumption method on the first-
in, first-out basis for governmental fund types.
Receivables and payables
Activities between funds that are representative of lending or borrowing arrangements
outstanding at the end of the fiscal year are referred to as either "due to/from other funds"
(current portion of interfund loans) or "advances to/from other funds" (noncurrent portion of
interfund loans). Any residual balances outstanding between governmental activities and
business type activities are reported in the government-wide financial statements as "internal
balances".
Advances between funds, as reported in the fund financial statements, are offset by a fund
balance reserve account in applicable funds to indicate that they are not available for
appropriation and are not expendable as financial resources.
All trade and property tax receivables, including those for W.P.C.A. funds, are shown net of an
allowance for uncollectible accounts. Trade account receivables allowance for uncollectible
accounts is estimated based on the inherent risk associated with the accounts.

CITY OF SHELTON, CONNECTICUT
NOTES TO THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS, Continued
June 30 2011
Capital assets
Capital assets, which include property, plant and equipment and infrastructure assets (e.g.,
roads, bridges, sidewalks and similar items) are reported in the applicable governmental or
business-type activities columns in government-wide financial statements. Capital assets are
defined by the government as assets with an initial individual cost of more than $20,000 and an
estimated useful life in excess of two years.
Such assets are recorded at historical cost or estimated historical cost if purchased or
constructed. Donated capital assets are recorded at estimated fair value at the date of
donation. The cost of normal maintenance and repairs that do not add to the value of the net
assets or materially extend assets lives are not capitalized.
Major outlays for capital assets and improvements are capitalized as projects are constructed.
Interest incurred during the construction phase of capital assets of the business-type activities is
included as part of the capitalized value of the assets constructed.
Property, plant and equipment of the City are depreciated using the straight-line method over
the following estimated U!:)eful lives:
Asset
Buildings and improvements
Infrastructure
Machinery and equipment
Years
25-50
10-65
5-20
Capital assets are reported as expenditures and no depreciation expense is reported in the
governmental fund financial statements.
Compensated absences
Under the terms of its various union contracts, City and Board of Education employees are
granted vacation and sick time in varying amounts based on length of service. Certain
employees may also carry over a limited number of unused vacation days to subsequent years
based on the terms of an employment or union contract. In the event of termination, these
employees are reimbursed for accumulated vacation. The City recognizes a liability in the
government-wide financial statements for the vested portion, as well as the unvested portion to
the extent expected to be paid, as compensated absences.
Deferred revenue
Deferred revenue arises when potential revenue does not meet both the measurable and
available criteria for recognition in the current period. Deferred revenue also arises when
resources are received by the City before it has a legal claim to them, as when grant monies are
received prior to the incurrence of qualifying expenditures. In subsequent periods, when both
revenue recognition criteria are met, or when the City has a legal claim to the resources, the
liability for deferred revenue is removed and revenue is recognized.

CITY OF SHELTON, CONNECTICUT
NOTES TO THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS, Continued
June 30 2011
Long-term obligations
In the government-wide financial statements and proprietary fund types in fund financial
statements, long-term debt and other long-term obligations are reported as liabilities in the
applicable governmental activities, business-type activities or proprietary fund type statement of
net assets. Bond premiums and discounts, as well as issuance costs, are deferred and
amortized over the life of the bonds using the effective interest method. Bonds payable are
reported net of the applicable bond premium or discount. Bond issuance costs are reported as
deferred charges and amortized over the terms of the related debt.
In the fund financial statements, governmental fund types recognize bond premiums and
discounts, as well as bond issuance costs, during the current period. The face amount of the
debt issued is reported as other financial sources. Premiums received on debt issuances are
reported as other financing sources while discounts on debt issuances are reported as other
financing uses. Issuance costs, whether or not withheld from the actual debt proceeds
received, are reported as debt service expenditures.
Fund equity and net assets
In the government-wide financial statements, net assets are classified in the following
categories:
Investment in capital assets, net of related debt - This category groups all capital
assets, including infrastructure, into one component of net assets. Accumulated
depreciation and the outstanding balances of debt that are attributable to the acquisition,
construction or improvement of these assets reduce this category.
The restricted net assets represent amounts of external restrictions imposed by
creditors, grantors, contributors and laws or regulations of other governments and
restrictions imposed by law through constitutional provisions or enabling legislation.
The unrestricted net assets represent the net assets of the City which are not
restricted for any project or other purpose.
In the fund financial statements, fund balances of governmental funds are classified into two
separate categories. The five categories and their general meanings are as follows:
The nonspendable are those net assets that are not in expendable form or are legally
or contractually required to be maintained.
The restricted fund balances are defined in the same manner as for the restricted
government-wide net assets.
Committed fund balances are those balances that can only be used for a specific
purpose as a result of constraints imposed by formal action of the government's highest
level of decision-making authority. For the City of Shelton, that was considered to be the
Board of Alderman.
-21-
CITY OF SHELTON, CONNECTICUT
NOTES TO THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS, Continued
June 30 2011
Assigned fund balance are amounts that are contained by the government's intent to
be used as a specific purpose.
Unassigned fund balance is defined as the residual classification for the general fund
and includes those remaining balances that cannot be categorized in the four categories.
Note 2- Budgets and BudgetarY' Accounting
General Fund
The Statement of Revenues and Expenditures, and Change in Fund Balance- Budgetary Basis
- Budget to Actual presented in the financial statements for the General Fund is on the
budgetary basis of accounting which is a basis of accounting other than the accrual basis and
the modified basis of accounting. The budgetary basis of accounting and the City's general
budget policies are as follows:
A. The manager of each department, office and agency submits to the Mayor, by January
15, estimates of revenues and expenditures for the following year.
B. The Mayor reviews these estimates and may revise them as he deems advisable, except
that in the case of the department of education, he has the authority to revise only the
total estimated expenditures.
C. On or before February 22, the Mayor, with the assistance of the Director of Finance,
submits to the Board of Apportionment and Taxation. The Board, by majority vote of full
membership, approves the budget and submits it to the Board of Alderman by April 1.
D. The City's Board of Apportionments and Taxation is authorized to transfer budgeted
amounts within one department. However, any transfers between departments or
additional appropriations, must be approved by the City Alderman. Additional
appropriations. by the Aldermen may be approved from any contingency fund or the
general fund's undesignated fund balance, without levying a special tax. There were
additional appropriations of approximately $303,210 during the year ended June 30,
2011, which were funded through additional revenues received.
E. All unencumbered appropriations lapse at year-end except those for capital projects and
nonrecurring special revenue funds. Appropriations for these funds are continued until
completion of applicable projects, which generally last more than one year.
F. Encumbrances are recognized as a valid and proper charge against a budget
appropriation in the year in which the purchase order, contract or other commitment is
issued and, accordingly, encumbrances outstanding at year-end are reflected in
budgetary reports as expenditures of the current year.
G. The legal level of budgetary control is at the department level.

Explanation of Certain Differences Between the Governmental Fund Statement of Revenues,
Expenditures and Changes in Fund Balance and the Government-wide Statement of Activities
The governmental fund statement of revenues, expenditures and changes in fund balances
includes reconciliation between net changes in fund balances - total governmental funds and
changes in net assets of governmental activities as reported in the government-wide statement
of activities. One element of that reconciliation explains that "Governmental funds report capital
outlays as expenditures. However, in the statement of activities the cost of those assets is
allocated over their estimated useful lives and reported as depreciation expense." The details
of this difference are as follows:
Acquisitions
Disposals
Depreciation
Net Adjustment to increase net changes in fund
balances to arrive at changes in net assets of
governmental activities
$ 10,098,493
(75,960)
(3,573,955)
$
Another element of that reconciliation states that "the issuance of long-term debt (e.g., bonds,
leases) provides current financial resources to governmental funds, while the repayment of the
principal of long-term debt consumes the current financial resources of governmental funds.
Neither transaction, however, has any effect on net assets. Also, governmental funds report the
effect of issuance costs, premiums, discounts and similar. items when debt is first issued,
whereas, these amounts are deferred and amortized in the statement of activities." The details
of this difference are as follows:
New issuances
Payments of debt
Premium received on new issuance
Amortization of bond premiums
Net change in accrued interest
Net change in other long-term liabilities
Net adjustment to reduce net changes in fund

Interest rate risk is the risk that changes in the market interest rates which will adversely affect
the fair value of an investment. The City has no formal policy specifically related to interest rate
risk. The City minimizes its exposure to interest rate risk by investing its operating funds in
short-term investments.
Credit Risk
Generally, credit risk is the risk that an issuer of an investment will not fulfill its obligation to the
holder of the investment. This is measured by the assignment of a rating by a nationally
recognized statistical rating organization. It is the City's policy to invest only in securities that
meet the ratings requirements set by General State Statute Chapter 112, Section 7-400 as
follows:
The treasurer of any municipality, as defined in section 7-359, upon approval by the
budget-making authority, as defined in said section, of any metropolitan district, of any
regional school district, of any district as defined in section 7-324, and of any other
municipal corporation or authority authorized to issue bonds, notes or other obligations

to pay the bus company under the current contract is based on per bus per day charges. The
current contract will end on June 30, 2013. The expense for the 2011 fiscal year was
$2,337,665.
Municipal solid waste management services contract
The City has entered into the municipal solid waste management services contract, as
amended, (the Service Contract) with the Connecticut Resources Recovery Authority (the
Authority) pursuant to which it participates with four other Connecticut Municipalities (the five
constituting the Contracting Municipalities), in the Shelton Resource Recovery System (the
System). The System consists of mass-burn solid waste, recovery resource steam and electric
generation facility (the Facility) located in the City of Shelton, Connecticut and various
improvements and facilities related thereto, including landfills. The facility is complete and
presently receiving waste from the Contracting Municipalities.
Under the Service Contract, the City is required to deliver, or cause to be delivered, to the
System solid waste generated within its boundaries with a minimum commitment of 18,102 tons
per year and to pay a uniform per ton disposal service payment (the Service Payment). The
current fee is $61 per ton. The aggregated minimum commitment of the five Contracting
Municipalities is 265,000 tons per year. The City's Service Payment commitment is a "put-or-

NOTES TO THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS, Continued

pay" commitment in that if the aggregate minimum commitment of the Contracting Municipalities
is not met by the total deliveries of all the Contracting Municipalities in any year, the City must
pay the Service Payment for its full portion of the aggregate minimum commitment even if it did
not deliver that full portion.
The service payment applicable in any contract year is calculated by estimating the net cost of
operation, which is the cost of operation less revenues other than Service Payments, as such
terms are defined in the Service Contract. The sum of all Service Payments and other
payments from the Contracting Municipalities are required to be sufficient to pay or provide for
the net cost of operations.
The City has pledged its full faith and credit to the payment of Service Payments and has also
agreed to enforce or levy and collect all taxes, cost sharing or other assessments or charges.
and take all such other action as may be necessary to provide for the payment of the Service
Payments.

The City has several construction contracts in progress at June 30, 2011. A summary of the
larger amounts remaining in these contracts is as follows:
Education projects $ _ _..:_7 4..:.::5<.>..:,0:::..:::0:..:::.0
Total $ 745.000
Risk Management and Self-Insurance
The City is exposed to various risks of loss including torts, theft of, damage to, and destruction
of assets; error and omissions; injuries to employees; employee health; and natural disasters.
The City generally obtains commercial insurance for these risks, but has chosen to retain the
risks for workers' compensation, including heart and hypertension, and physical damage of the
City's vehicles.
The worker's compensation fund purchases a self insured retention worker's compensation
excess policy for claims exceeding $500,000. All other claims are funded by the General Fund.
Payments to the fund are estimated based on payroll amounts, job classification rates,
experience and second injury fund assessments.
Under Public Act 9-342, health insurance for retired teachers, subsidy equal to the equivalents
flat dollar premium amount of Blue Cross 65/Biue Shield 65 is paid by the State directly to the
local school districts. Where it is applied to reduce premium payments of the retired members'
1% supplemental contributions, since July 1, 1989, have been directly to a dedicated health
insurance fund. There is no cost to the City.

Note 10 - Employee Retirement Plans
Merit Retirement Plan
The City of Shelton maintains a contributory money purchase defined contribution pension plan
(City of Shelton Money Purchase Plan) which covers merit employees who work more than 20
hours per week and more than 5 months per year, except policemen who participate in a
defined benefit pension plan administered by the Connecticut Municipal Emplqyees' Retirement
Fund, and teachers who participate in a contributory retirement plan administered by the
Connecticut State Teachers' Retirement System.
The defined contribution pension plan provides pension benefits in return for services rendered,
provides an individual account for each participant, and specifies how contributions to the
individual's account are to be determined instead of specifying the amount of benefits the
individual is to receive. Under a defined contribution pension plan, the benefits a participant will
receive depend solely on the amount contributed to the participant's account, the returns earned
on investments of those contributions, and forfeitures of other participant's benefits that may be
allocated to such participant's account.
Employees are eligible to participate once they have completed one year of continuous service,
with no minimum age requirement. The City contributes an amount equal to 6% of the
employee's annual base wages, while employees must contribute 3%. Employees may also
make voluntary contributions up to 1 0% of annual wages.
Contributions made by an employee vest immediately and contributions made by the City for
each employee (and interest allocated to the employee's account) are 20% vested for each year
of service until 100% vested after 5 years of service. Both participant and employer
contributions are invested in a fixed income interest accumulation account designed under the
plan.

$217,553 (3.0% of covered payroll).
No pension provision changes occurred during the year that affected the required contributions

Policemen's Retirement Fund
The policemen participate in the Municipal Employees' Retirement Fund (MERF), a cost-sharing
multiple-employer public employee retirement system (PERS) established by the State of
Connecticut and administered by the State Retirement Commission to provide retirement and
disability benefits, annual cost-of-living adjustments and death benefits to the employees and
beneficiaries of participating municipalities. Chapter 113 Part II of the General Statutes of
Connecticut, which can be amended by legislative action, establishes PERS benefits, member
contribution rates and other plan provisions. MERF is considered to be a part of the State of
Connecticut financial reporting entity and is included in the State's financial reports as a pension
trust fund. Those reports may be obtained by writing to the State of Connecticut, Office of the
State Comptroller, 55 Elm Street, Hartford, Connecticut 06106 or by calling 860-702-3480.
Funding Policy- Plan members are required by State Statute to contribute 2-1/4% of earnings
upon which Social Security tax is paid plus 5% of earnings on which no Social Security tax is
paid. Each participating municipality is required to contribute at an actuarially determined rate.
The current rate is 15.3% of annual covered payroll. The contribution requirements of the City
are established and may be amended by the State Retirement Commission. The City's
contributions to MERF for the years ended June 30, 2011, 2010 and 2009 were $781,964,
$692,052, and $549,239 respectively, equal to the required contributions for each year.
Teachers' Retirement
All City of Shelton Board of Education certified employees participate in the State of Connecticut
Teachers' Retirement System under Section 10.183 of the General Statutes of the State of
Connecticut. A teacher is eligible to receive a normal retirement benefit if he or she has: 1)
attained age 60 and has accumulated 20 years of credited service in the public schools of
Connecticut, or 2) attained any age and has accumulated 35 years of credited service, at least
25 years of which are services in the public schools of Connecticut.
The Board of Education withholds 7.25% of all teachers' annual salaries and transmits the funds
to the State Teachers' Retirement Board. For the year ended June 30, 2010 there were 416
teachers from the City of Shelton participating in the plan, and they contributed $2,300,263 to
the system. Teacher payroll subject to retirement amounted to $31,727,765.
The retirement system for teachers is funded by the State based upon the recommendation of
the Teachers' Retirement Board. The City does not have any liability for teacher pensions. For
the year ended June 30, 2011 the City has recorded, in the General Fund, intergovernmental
revenue and education expenditures in the amount of $5,044,716 as payments made by the
State of Connecticut on behalf of the City.

Plan description
The City is the administrator of a single-employer, contributory, defined benefit OPES plan. The
OPES plan provides post-employment medical, dental, and life insurance benefits to eligible
retirees and their spouses. A bi-annual actuarial valuation is made to determine whether the
contributions are sufficient to meet the plan obligations. The OPES does not issue a separate,
stand-alone financial report.
Classes of employees covered
As of December 31, 2008, the date of the last actuarial report, the plans' membership consisted
of:
Active Employees
Retired Employees, spouses, and beneficiaries

The obligations of the plan members, employers and other entities are established by action of
the City pursuant to applicable collective bargaining and employment agreements. The required
contribution rate of the employer and the members varies depending on the applicable
agreement. The City currently contributes enough money to the plan to satisfy current
obligations on a pay-as-you go basis. The costs of administering the plan are paid by the City.
The OPES obtained its latest actuarial valuation as of December 31, 2008 upon which the
annual required contribution for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2010 was determined based on a
4.5% discount rate.

NOTES TO THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS, Continued

The schedule of funding progress, which will be presented as required supplementary
information following the notes to the financial statements after the second year, presents
multiyear trend information about whether the actuarial value of plan assets is increasing or
decreasing over time relative to the actuarial accrued liabilities for benefits.
The accrued liability is equal to the portion of the present value of future benefits that is
allocated to years of service before the valuation date. The accrued liability is amortized over
30 years using an amortization method of payments increasing at 3.5% per year.
The projection of future benefit payments for an ongoing plan involves estimates of the value of
reported amounts and assumptions about the probability of occurrence of events far into the
future. Examples include assumptions about future employment, mortality, and the healthcare
cost trend rate. Amounts determined regarding the funding status of the plans and the annual
required contributions of the employer are subject to continual revision as actual results are
compared with past expectations and new estimates are made about the future.

The City's annual post-employment benefit (OPEB) cost (expense) is calculated based on the
annual required contribution of the employer (ARC). The City has engaged an actuary to
calculate the ARC and related information per the provisions of GASB Statement 45 for
employers in plans with more than 1 00 total plan members. The ARC represents a level of
funding that, if paid on an ongoing basis, is projected to cover normal costs each year and to
amortize any unfunded liabilities (or funding excess) over a period not to exceed thirty years.
The calculation of the change in the net OPEB obligation for the year ended June 30,

Termination Rates Before Retirement: Assumptions regarding mortality, disability, withdrawal
and retirement are taken from the July 1, 2007 valuation of the Connecticut Municipal
Employees' Retirement System (City) or the July 1, 2008 valuation of the Connecticut State
Teachers' Retirement System (BOE).
Medical/Drug Cost Trend Rates: Healthcare trend measures the anticipated overall rate at
which health plan costs are expected to increase in future years. The rates are "net" and are
applied to the net per capita costs. The trend for a particular plan year is the rate that must be
applied to that year's cost to yield the next year's projected cost. The medical/drug cost trend
rate, as of the valuation date of December 31, 2008, is 9.0% graded to 5.0% over 6 years.
Retiree Contribution Increase Rate: Retiree contributions are expected to increase with
medical trend.
Participation and Coverage Election: 100% of active employees with coverage are assumed
to elect retiree coverage.
100% of retirees over age 65 are assumed to remain in their current medical plan for life.
For future retirees and current retirees of BOE under age 65, 100% are assumed to be eligible
for Medicare and are assumed to enroll in the Stirling Medicare plan offered through the
Teachers Retirement Board (TRB) and thus represent no liability to the BOE once they reach
age 65.
Plan Design: Development of plan liabilities was based on substantive plan benefits.
Administrative Expenses: Administrative expenses for insured plans were assumed to be
included in the fully insured premium rates.
Annual Maximum Benefits: No increase in the annual maximum benefit levels was assumed.
Lifetime Maximum Benefits: No information was available regarding accumulations toward
lifetime maximum benefits and no such accumulations were assumed.
Missing Participant Data: A missing census item for a given participant was assumed to equal
the average value of that item over all other participants of the same status for whom the item is
known.

REPORT ON INTERNAL CONTROL OVER FINANCIAL REPORTING
AND ON COMPLIANCE AND OTHER MATTERS BASED ON AN
AUDIT OF FINANCIAL STATEMENTS PERFORMED IN ACCORDANCE
WITH GOVERNMENT AUDITING STANDARDS
Independent Auditor's Report
To The Board of Aldermen
City of Shelton
Shelton, Connecticut, 06484
We have audited the financial statements of governmental activities, the business-type
activities, each major fund, and the aggregate remaining fund information of the City of Shelton,
Connecticut as of and for the year ended June 30, 2011, which collectively comprise the City of
Shelton, Connecticut's basic financial statements and have issued our qualified opinion report
thereon dated December 20, 2011. We conducted our audit in accordance with auditing
standards generally accepted in the United States of America and the standards applicable to
financial audits contained in Government Auditing Standards, issued by the Comptroller General
of the United States.
Internal Control Over Financial Reporting
Management of the City of Shelton is responsible for establishing and maintaining effective
internal control over financial reporting. In planning and performing our audit, we considered the
City of Shelton's internal control over financial reporting as a basis for designing our auditing
procedures for the purpose of expressing our opinions on the financial statements, but not for
the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the City of Shelton's internal
control over financial reporting. Accordingly, we do not express an opinion on the effectiveness
of the City of Shelton's internal control over financial reporting.
Our consideration of internal control over financial reporting was for the limited purpose
described in the preceding paragraph and was not designed to identify all deficiencies in internal
control over financial reporting that might be significant deficiencies or material weaknesses and
therefore, there can be no assurance that all deficiencies, significant deficiencies, or material
weaknesses have been identified. However, we described in the accompanying schedule of
findings and questioned costs, we identified a certain deficiency in internal control over financial
reporting that we consider to be a material weakness.
A deficiency in internal control exists when the design or operation of a control does not allow
management or employees, in the normal course of performing their assigned functions, to
prevent, detect and correct misstatements on a timely basis. A material weakness is a
deficiency, or combination of deficiencies, in internal control such that there is a reasonable
possibility that a material misstatement of the entity's financial statements will not be prevented,
or detected and corrected on a timely basis. We consider the deficiency described in the
accompanying schedule of findings and questioned costs to be a material weakness. See
finding 2011-1.
1
Compliance and Other Matters
As part of obtaining reasonable assurance about whether the City of Shelton's financial
statements are free of material misstatement, we performed tests of its compliance with certain
provisions of laws, regulations, contracts, and grants agreements, noncompliance with which
could have a direct and material effect on the determination of financial statement amounts.
However, providing an opinion on compliance with those provisions was not an objective of our
audit, and accordingly, we do not express such an opinion. The results of our tests disclosed no
instances of noncompliance or other matters that are required to be reported under Government
Auditing Standards.
The City's response to the finding identified in our audit is described in the accompanying
schedule of findings and questioned costs. We did not audit the Center's response and,
accordingly, we express no opinion.
This report is intended solely for the information and use of management, the Board of
Aldermen, others within the City of Shelton, Federal Awarding agencies, the Office of Policy and
Management, State Awarding agencies, and pass-through entities and is not intended to be and
should not be used by anyone other than these specified parties.

REPORT ON COMPLIANCE WITH REQUIREMENTS THAT COULD HAVE A DIRECT AND
MATERIAL EFFECT ON EACH MAJOR PROGRAM AND ON INTERNAL
CONTROL OVER COMPLIANCE IN ACCORDANCE WITH OMB CIRCULAR A-133
To the Board of Aldermen
City of Shelton
Shelton, Connecticut, 06484
Compliance
Independent Auditor's Report
We have audited City of Shelton Connecticut's compliance with the types of compliance
requirements described in the OMB Circular A-133 Compliance Supplement that could have a
direct and material effect on each of City of Shelton's major federal programs for the year ended
June 30, 2011. The City of Shelton's major federal programs are identified in the summary of
auditor's results section of the accompanying schedule of findings and questioned costs.
Compliance with the requirements of laws, regulations, contracts, and grants applicable to each
of its major federal programs is the responsibility of the City of Shelton's management. Our
responsibility is to express an opinion on the City of Shelton's compliance based on our audit.
We conducted our audit of compliance in accordance with auditing standards generally
accepted in the United States of America; the standards applicable to financial audits contained
in Government Auditing Standards, issued by the Comptroller General of the United States; and
OMB Circular A-133, Audits of States, Local Governments, and Non-Profit Organizations.
Those standards and OMB Circular A-133 require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain
reasonable assurance about whether noncompliance with the types of compliance requirements
referred to above that could have a direct and material effect on a major federal program
occurred. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence about the City of Shelton's
compliance with those requirements and performing such other procedures as we considered
necessary in the circumstances. We believe that our audit provides a reasonable basis for our
opinion. Our audit does not provide a legal determination of the City of Shelton's compliance
with those requirements.
In our opinion, the City of Shelton complied, in all material respects, with the compliance
requirements referred to above that could have a direct and material effect on each of its major
federal programs for the year ended June 30, 2011.
3
Internal Control Over Compliance
Management of the City of Shelton is responsible for establishing and maintaining
effective internal control over compliance with requirements of laws, regulations,
contracts, and grants applicable to federal programs. In planning and performing our
audit, we considered the City of Shelton's internal control over compliance with the
requirements that could have a direct and material effect on a major federal program to
determine the auditing procedures for the purpose of expressing our opinion on
compliance and to test and report on internal control over compliance in accordance with
OMB Circular A-133, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the
effectiveness of the internal control over compliance. Accordingly, we do not express an
opinion on the effectiveness of the City of Shelton's internal control over compliance.
A deficiency in internal control over compliance exists when the design or operation of a
control over compliance does not allow management or employees, in the normal course
of performing their assigned functions, to prevent, or detect and correct, noncompliance
with a type of compliance requirement of a federal program on a timely basis. A material
weakness in internal control over compliance is a deficiency, or combination of
deficiencies, in internal control over compliance, such that there is a reasonable
possibility that material noncompliance with a type of compliance requirement of a
federal program will not be prevented, or detected and corrected, on a timely basis.
Our consideration of the internal control over compliance was for the limited purpose
described in the first paragraph of this section and was not designed to identify all
deficiencies in internal control over compliance that might be deficiencies, significant
deficiencies, or material weaknesses. We did not identify any deficiencies in internal
control over compliance that we consider to be material weaknesses, as defined above.
Schedule of Expenditures of Federal Awards
We have audited the financial statements of the governmental activities, the business-
type activities, each major fund, and the aggregate remaining fund information of the
City of Shelton as of and for the year ended June 30, 2011 I and have issued our
qualified opinion report thereon dated December 20, 2011. Our audit was performed for
the purpose of forming our opinions on the financial statements that collectively
comprise the City of Shelton's basic financial statements. The accompanying schedule
of expenditures of federal awards is presented for purposes of additional analysis as
required by OMB Circular A-133 and is not a required part of the basic financial
statements. Such information has been subjected to the auditing procedures applied in
the audit of the basic financial statements and, in our opinion, is fairly stated, in all
material respects, in relation to the basic financial statements taken as a whole.

SECTION II- FINANCIAL STATEMENT FINDINGS
2011-1 Actuarial Report for Other Post-Employment Benefits Other than Pension
Condition
The City of Shelton did not have an independent actuarial report prepared for the post-
employment benefits other than pension during the past two fiscal years.
Criteria
Generally accepted accounting principles require an independent actuary report to be
completed bi-annually for Municipalities that offer Post-employment benefits other than
pension (OPEB).
Content
The City of Shelton last completed an actuary report for their OPEB during fiscal
year ended June 30, 2009, which provided for an annual actuarial required
contribution of $922,277, however the majority of these costs are covered by
retiree reimbursements. The City manages these costs directly from the general
fund rather than irrevocable trust, since less than 10 employee contracts provide
for the City to fund for such retirement benefits. The remaining other post-
employee benefits require the retiree to fully fund for benefit.
The net OPES obligation reported in the long-term liabilities of the government-wide
financial statements lacks proper supporting documentation.
Cause
The budgetary restraints were compared to the cost of an independent actuary report.
Management felt that, other than the six employees, benefits are fully funded through
reimbursements of retirees and the additional information provided by such a report
would not effect the management of the benefits.
Recommendation
The City should have an Independent Actuarial Report performed for the post-
employment benefits other than the pension for the next fiscal year.

REPORT ON COMPLIANCE WITH REQUIREMENTS THAT COULD HAVE A DIRECT
AND MATERIAL EFFECT ON EACH MAJOR PROGRAM AND ON INTERNAL
CONTROL OVER COMPLIANCE IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE STATE SINGLE
AUDIT ACT
Board of Aldermen
City of Shelton
Shelton, Connecticut
Compliance
Independent Auditor's Report
We have audited the City of Shelton, Connecticut's compliance with the types of
compliance requirements described in the Office of Policy and Management Compliance
Supplement that could have a direct and material effect on each of the City of Shelton's
major state programs for the year ended June 30, 2011. The major state programs are
identified in the summary of auditors' results section of the accompanying schedule of
findings and questioned costs. Compliance with the requirements of laws, regulations,
contracts, and grants applicable to each of its major state programs is the responsibility
of the City of Shelton, Connecticut's management. Our responsibility is to express an
opinion on the City of Shelton, Connecticut's compliance based on our audit.
We conducted our audit of compliance in accordance with auditing standards generally
accepted in the United States of America; the standards applicable to financial audits
contained in Government Auditing Standards, issued by the Comptroller General of the
United States; and the State Single Audit Act (C.G.S. Sections 4-230 to 4-236). Those
standards and the State Single Audit Act require that we plan and perform the audit to
obtain reasonable assurance about whether noncompliance with the types of
compliance requirements referred to above that could have a direct and material effect
on a major state program occurred. An audit includes examining, on a test basis,
evidence about the City of Shelton, Connecticut's compliance with those requirements
and performing such other procedures as we considered necessary in the
circumstances. We believe that our audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinion.
Our audit does not provide a legal determination of the City of Shelton, Connecticut's
compliance with those requirements.
In our opinion, the City of Shelton, Connecticut complied, in all material respects, with
the compliance requirements referred to above that could have a direct and material
effect on each of its major state programs for the year ended June 30, 2011.
12
Internal Control Over Compliance
Management of the City of Shelton, Connecticut is responsible for establishing and
maintaining effective internal control over compliance with requirements of laws,
regulations, contracts, and grants applicable to state programs. In planning and
performing our audit, we considered the City of Shelton, Connecticut's internal control
over compliance with the requirements that could have a direct and material effect on a
major state program to determine the auditing procedures for the purpose of expressing
our opinion on compliance and to test and report on internal control over compliance in
accordance with the State Single Audit Act, but not for the purpose of expressing an
opinion on the effectiveness of internal control over compliance. Accordingly, we do not
express an opinion on the effectiveness of the City of Shelton, Connecticut's internal
control over compliance.
A deficiency in internal control over compliance exists when the design or operation of a
control over compliance does not allow management or employees, in the normal course
of performing their assigned functions, to prevent, or detect and correct, noncompliance
with a type of compliance requirement of a state program on a timely basis. A material
weakness in internal control over compliance is a deficiency, or combination of
deficiencies, in internal control over compliance, such that there is a reasonable
possibility that material noncompliance with a type of compliance requirement of a state
program will not be prevented, or detected and corrected, on a timely basis.
Our consideration of internal control over compliance was for the limited purpose
described in the first paragraph of this section and was not designed to identify all
deficiencies in internal control over compliance that might be deficiencies, significant
deficiencies or material weaknesses. We did not identify any deficiencies in internal
control over compliance that we consider to be material weaknesses, as defined above.
Schedule of Expenditures of State Financial Assistance
We have audited the financial statements of the governmental activities, the business-
type activities each major fund, and the aggregate remaining fund information of the City
of Shelton, Connecticut as of and for the year ended June 30, 2011, and have issued
our qualified opinion report thereon dated December 20, 2011. Our audit was performed
for the purpose of forming opinions on the financial statements that collectively comprise
the City of Shelton, Connecticut's basic financial statements. The accompanying
schedule of expenditures of state financial assistance is presented for purposes of
additional analysis as required by the State Single Audit Act and is not a required part of
the basic financial statements. Such information has been subjected to the auditing
procedures applied in the audit of the basic financial statements and, in our opinion, is
fairly stated in all material respects, in relation to the basic financial statements taken as
a whole.

NOTES TO THE SCHEDULE OF EXPENDITURES OF
STATE FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE
FOR THE YEAR ENDED JUNE 30, 2011
Various departments and agencies of the State of Connecticut have provided financial
assistance to the City of Shelton, Connecticut through grants and other authorizations in
accordance with the General Statutes of the State of Connecticut. These financial
assistance programs fund several programs including education, public safety and
general government services.
1. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
The accounting policies of the City of Shelton, Connecticut conform to generally
accepted accounting principles as applicable to governments. The following is a
summary of the more significant policies relating to the aforementioned grant
programs.
Basis of Accounting
The financial statements contained in the City's annual audit report are
prepared on the modified accrual basis. The following is a summary of such
basis:
Revenues are recognized when earned and available. Certain grants are
recognized based on grant award since they are considered entitlement
grants; other grants, such as grants that are dependent upon expenditure
factor for determining eligibility, recognize grant revenue to the extent of
expenditures.
Expenditures are recorded when the related liability is incurred.
Encumbrances are reflected as a reserve against fund balance and
accordingly are not reflected as expenditures.
The Schedule of Expenditures of State Financial Assistance, contained in this
report, is prepared based on regulations established by the State of
Connecticut Office of Policy and Management. In accordance with these
regulations (Section 4-236-22), certain grants are not dependent on
expenditure activity, and accordingly, are considered to be expended in the
fiscal year of receipt. These grant program receipts are reflected in the
expenditures column of the Schedule of Expenditures of State Financial
Assistance.
