The City of Germantown is diligent in maintaining adequate funding levels to support existing services and anticipated service requirements. Some of the City’s Special Revenue Funds and Enterprise Funds are dependent upon funds received from the City’s General Fund. This objective reduces the dependency of taxpayer dollars from the General Fund to support Special and Enterprise Funds. Over time, the General Fund will reduce funding to the Special Revenue Funds making these funds self-sufficient except for capital needs; however, the Enterprise Funds should be self-sufficient including capital needs. Both of these funds must generate revenues that exceed expenditures.
