Governmental Activities 
Overall, spending on governmental activities remained generally flat when compared to fiscal year 2010.  Nominal 
increases are noted in the general government function, physical environment, transportation, and culture and 
recreation which are offset by nominal decreases in economic environment and capital improvements.  Debt 
service principal decreased by 69%, due to a large payoff in fiscal year 2010 for two outstanding loans.  The County 
remains committed to providing basic governmental services and the public safety expected by the citizens. 
The most significant decrease in revenues in fiscal 2011 occurred in the intergovernmental category.  The biggest 
factor involved in this decrease was the completion in fiscal 2010 of the Federal Stimulus projects.  Other 
decreases were experienced in the gas tax revenues and permits and fees.  Modest increases were noted in sales 
tax revenues, charges for services, fines and forfeitures, investment income, and miscellaneous revenues. 
This combination of increases and decreases in various functional areas described above resulted in an increase in 
governmental net assets of $6,707,355 which is about 50% less than the increase in net assets experienced in fiscal 
year 2010.  The graph below illustrates the sources of
