The tax agency fund can prepare a statement of tax agency fund net position
reflecting the asset and liability balances of the fund. Additionally, the fund would
be combined with any other agency funds that Suncoast County has and the total
of the assets and liabilities for the agency funds would be shown in a single
agency fund column on the statement of fiduciary net position.

Since the city is providing administrative services for debt for which it has no
legal obligation, the GASB standards indicate the services should be accounted
for using an agency fund.

Assets and liabilities of the special assessment agency fund would be combined
with other agency funds of the reporting entity and appear in a separate column
on the statement of fiduciary net position but will appear in no other basic
financial statements. If there are several agency funds, Foothills may opt to
provide a combining statement of agency funds in its CAFR. The combining
statement would display the assets and liabilities for each agency fund in a
separate column.

d.

Since the City of Foothills is not obligated in any manner for the Green Acres
special assessment debt, the debt should not be reported in Foothills financial
statements; however, the notes to the financial statements should disclose the
amount of the debt, as well as the fact that the government is in no way liable for
repayment but is only acting as an agent for the property owners in collecting the
assessments, forwarding the collections to bondholders, and initiating foreclosure
proceedings, if appropriate.

8-20. Fiduciary funds are described in a, c, d, f, i, and j. See explanations for

each

fund type below.


a. Tri-Centennial Fund. This is a private-purpose trust fund since the resources
will benefit a broad constituency rather than just the citizens of the city.
b. Perpetual Care Fund. This describes a permanent fund as the principal
amount must be kept intact, but earnings of the fund can be used to provide
care for the citys own cemeteries.
c. Poudre River Public Library District. Because city management simply acts as
a custodian for the resources of the funds, this fund functions as an agency
fund, a fiduciary fund.
d. School Impact Fee Fund. Since the city is acting in a custodial capacity with
no discretion in the use or distribution of these resources, the fund is an
agency fund.
e. Cultural Services and Facilities. Since the resources are funds of the
government, the program primarily benefits the government, and the majority
of resources are provided on an ongoing basis from performing arts center
and museum fees, it should be accounted for as a special revenue fund.
f. Payroll Fund. Since payroll deductions are the assets of other
governments/organizations (e.g., federal government, state government,
pension funds), an agency fund is used to account for the deductions.
g. Telephone Commissions Fund. The city would use a special revenue fund,
since it primarily benefits from using the commissions to defray the costs
related to operation of the jail.
h. Block Grant Fund. Since the city is required to provide matching funds, the
grant would be reported in a special revenue fund.
i. Health Benefits Fund. This is a pension and other employee benefit trust
fund since the city is providing a retirement benefit to those outside of
government (employees).

j. Unclaimed Property Fund. Since the state is maintaining the property until
such time as a legal claimant can be found, a private-purpose trust fund
would be used. Until the property reverts to the state it is considered a
benefit to a party outside of government (the as yet unfound claimant).

Since the transactions are recorded in an agency fund, they would not be
reported on the government-wide financial statements. The balances in the fund
would be included in a separate column on the statement of fiduciary net
position, as required by GAAP. Since there is no net position, nothing would be
included in the statement of changes in fiduciary net position.
