Shelby Charter Township

Board of Trustees Presentation

March 5, 2013


Summary of district court finances
Summary of District Court Finances

  • Using cash-based reporting, the Court appears to be providing revenue to the General Fund

  • Expenditures include wages, benefits, operating costs

    • Current year retiree healthcare benefit costs are included

    • About an equal amount is set aside each year to partially fund future costs of current employees

    • Rent & administrative charges NOT included



True cost of district court
True Cost of District Court seven years.

  • Court expenditures are under-reported

  • $393,000 per year should be set aside to fund retiree healthcare benefit

    • Shelby currently sets aside about $110,000 per year

  • When considering the true cost of the Court, Shelby has subsidized operations by about $670,000 over the past seven years



Revenues received if court located elsewhere
Revenues Received if Court Located Elsewhere subsidy. Over past 7 years, subsidy amounts to over $670,000.

  • Over past 7 years, Shelby would have received $200,000 - $300,000 per year from the Court, if the Township were not hosting the Court

  • Total payments would have amounted to over $1.7M

  • True cost of Court over same period results in $670,000 LOSS to the Township

  • Cash basis of Court finances over 7 years: $1.4M net revenues (with substantial unfunded liability on the balance sheet)




Conclusions
Conclusions would be most stable if Twp was not host

  • District Court operating costs have not been fully accounted for

    • Significant accrued liability should be included in operating costs

    • When factored into the budget, Shelby’s General Fund is effectively subsidizing the Court

  • Shelby’s revenues from the Court are more stable if the Township is not hosting the Court

  • If Court leaves Shelby, Township will be required to pay for a portion of current employee benefits after retirement for many years

    • Shelby Court revenues expected to exceed OPEB costs

    • Liability would be capped and diminish over time
