Continuous Problem – City of Monroe
TO ACCOMPANY
ESSENTIALS OF ACCOUNTING FOR GOVERNMENTAL
AND NOT-FOR-PROFIT ORGANIZATIONS:
TWELFTH EDITION
Chapters 2 through 8 describe accounting and financial reporting by state and local
governments. A continuous problem is presented to provide an overview of the reporting
process, including preparation of fund basis and government-wide statements. The problem
assumes the government is using fund accounting for its internal record-keeping and then at
year-end makes necessary adjustments to prepare the government-wide statements. The
problem that follows is presented in the same order as the textbook (beginning with Chapters
3, and 4).
Each chapter requires the preparation of journal entries to record the events and transactions
of governmental, proprietary, or fiduciary funds. For the General Fund, use control accounts
for the budgetary accounts, revenues, expenditures and encumbrances. For all other funds,
use separate accounts for each type of revenue and expenditure/expense. At appropriate
stages, preparation of the fund and government-wide statements are required. The following
funds are included in this series of problems:
Governmental Funds
 General
 Special revenue—Street and Highway Fund
 Capital projects—City Hall Annex Construction Fund
 Debt service—City Jail Annex Debt Service Fund
 Debt service—City Hall Debt Service Fund
Proprietary Funds
 Internal service—Stores and Services Fund
 Enterprise—Water and Sewer Fund
Fiduciary Funds
 Private-purpose—Student Scholarship Fund
 Pension trust—Fire and Police Retirement Fund

Monroe as of December 31, 2014, follow. These (beginning) balances have been entered in

Chapter 8 – Government-wide Statements
8–C. Assemble the following from previous continuous problems: (1) the governmental
funds Balance Sheet and Statement of Revenues, Expenditures, and Changes in Fund
Balances from Section 5–C; (3) the proprietary funds Statement of Net Assets and
Statement of Revenues, Expenses, and Changes in Fund Net Assets from Section 6–C.
Required:
1. Start a worksheet for adjustments, using the trial balance format illustrated in the text
(i.e. list accounts with debit balances first, then accounts with credit balances). Enter
the balances from the governmental funds financial statements prepared for Section
5-C. When doing this, follow the following guidelines:
 Net Assets: Use a single account for net assets (which will include the
beginning balance of all fund balance accounts).
 Intergovernmental Revenues: When setting up the worksheet, set up
separate lines for the intergovernmental revenues as follows:
State Grant for Highway and Street Maintenance $ 1,072,000
Operational Grant—General Government 332,000
Capital Grant—Public Safety 1,320,000
 total $2,724,000

 Capital Assets: It is not necessary to set up separate lines for different
classes of capital (fixed) assets or accumulated depreciation (simply use
one row for Capital Assets and another for Accumulated Depreciation).
 Confirm that the total debits and credits equal.
2. Prepare worksheet entries and post to the worksheet for the following items. Identify each
adjustment by the letter used in the problem:
a. Record the January 1, 2015 balances of general fixed assets and related
accumulated depreciation accounts. The City of Monroe had the following

d. Eliminate the other financing sources from the sale of bonds by recording a
liability for bonds payable and the related premium.
e. As of January 1, 2015, the City of Monroe had $12,000,000 in general
obligation bonds outstanding.
f. Eliminate the expenditures for bond principal.
g. Accrue interest in the amount of $328,000. (Two bond issues were outstanding;
interest payments for both were last made on July 1, 2015. The computation is
as follows: ($11,200,000 × .03 × 6/12) + ($4,000,000 ×. 08 × 6/12) = $328,000).
h. Adjust for the interest accrued in the prior year government-wide statements, but
recorded as an expenditure in the 2015 fund basis statements, ($12,000,000 ×
.03 × 6/12) = $180,000.
i. Amortize bond premium in the amount of $ 10,000.
j. Make adjustments for additional revenue accrual. The only adjustment is for
property taxes to eliminate the current year deferral of property taxes.
k. Adjust for the $21,000 of property taxes that was deferred in 2014 and
recognized as revenue in the 2015 fund-basis statements.
l. Assume the City adopted a policy in 2015 of allowing employees to accumulate
compensated absences. Make an adjustment accruing the expense of $ 39,500
Charge compensated absences expense.
m. Bring in the balances of the internal service fund balance sheet accounts. Again,
use a single account for all capital assets and a second account for all
accumulated depreciation balances (use a separate column of the worksheet to
enter Internal Service Fund entries).
n. No revenues from internal service funds were with external parties. Assume
$3,200 of the $11,200 “Due from Other Funds” in the internal service accounts
represents a receivable from the General Fund and the remaining $8,000 is due
from the enterprise fund. Eliminate the $3,200 interfund receivables.
o. Reduce governmental fund expenses by the net operating profit of internal
service funds. As the amount is small, reduce general government expenses for
the entire amount.
p. Eliminate transfers that are between departments reported within governmental
activities.
3. Prepare, in good form, a Statement of Activities for the City of Monroe for the Year Ended
December 31, 2015. For purposes of this statement, assume:
 $ 332,000 in the General Fund is a state grant specifically to support general
government programs.
 $ 1,072,000 in the Street and Highway Fund is an operating grant specifically for
highway and street maintenance expenses.
 $ 1,320,000 in the City Jail Construction Fund is a capital grant that applies to
public safety.
 Use the balances computed from the worksheet completed in part 2 for the governmental
activities portion of the statement. Use the solution to P6–C (Enterprise fund) to prepare
the business activities portion (net any short-term interfund payables/receivables).

4. Prepare, in good form, a Statement of Net Assets for the City of Monroe as of December
31, 2015. Group all capital assets, net of depreciation. Include a breakdown in the Net
Assets section for (a) capital assets, net of related debt, (b) restricted, and (c) unrestricted.
For purposes of classifying net assets for the governmental activities, assume:
 For the governmental activities net assets invested in capital assets, net of
related debt, the related debt includes the bonds payable, the premium on
bonds payable, and the advance from the water utility fund.
 The special revenue fund resources are restricted by the granting agency for
street and highway maintenance. These ($ 247,000) are the only restricted
resources in the governmental activities.
5. Prepare the reconciliation necessary to convert from the fund balance reported in the
governmental funds Balance Sheet to the net assets in the government-wide Statement of
Net Assets.
6. Prepare the reconciliation necessary to convert from the change in fund balances in the
governmental funds Statement of Revenues, Expenditures, and Changes in Fund Balances
to the change in net assets in the government-wide Statement of Activities.
