The statement of activities presents information showing how the governments net position changed during the most recent fiscal year. All changes in net position are reported as soon as the underlying event giving rise to the change occurs regardless of the timing of related cash flows. Thus revenues and expenses are reported in this statement for some items that will only result in cash flows in future fiscal periods e.g. uncollected taxes and earned but unused compensated absences. Both of the government-wide financial statements distinguish functions of the Village of Grafton that are principally supported by taxes and intergovernmental revenues governmental activities from other functions that are intended to recover all or a significant portion of their costs through user fees and charges business-type activities. The governmental activities of the Village of Grafton include general government public safety public works community enrichment services and conservation and development. The business-type activities of the Village of Grafton include the Grafton Water and Wastewater Utility. The government-wide financial statements include only the activities of the Village of Grafton. A Community Development Authority CDA has been established and is considered to be a component unit. However there was no financial activity for the CDA in 2014. The government-wide financial statements can be found on pages 29 31. of this report. Fund financial statements. A fund is a grouping of related accounts that is used to maintain control over resources that have been segregated for specific activities or objectives. The Village of Grafton like other state and local governments uses fund accounting to ensure and demonstrate compliance with finance-related legal requirements. All of the funds of the Village of Grafton can be divided into three categories governmental funds proprietary funds and fiduciary funds. Governmental funds. Governmental funds are used to account for essentially the same functions reported as governmental activities in the government-wide financial statements. However unlike the government-wide financial statements governmental fund financial statements focus on near-term inflows and outflows of spendable resources as well as on balances of spendable resources available at the end of the fiscal year. Such information may be useful in evaluating a governments near-term financing requirements. Because the focus of governmental funds is narrower than that of the government-wide financial statements it is useful to compare the information presented for governmental funds with similar information presented for governmental activities in the government-wide financial statements. By doing so readers may better understand the long-term impact of the governments near-term financing decisions. Both the governmental fund balance sheet and the governmental fund statement of revenues expenditures and changes in fund balances provide a reconciliation to facilitate this comparison between governmental funds and governmental activities. 16
