Each year the City of Whitewater analyzes and measures the finanical health of the city. Financial condition can be broadly defined as a local government's ability to finance its services on a continuing basis. Specifically, financial condition refers to a government's ability to 1) maintain existing service levels, 2) withstand local and regional economic disruptions, and 3) meet the demands of natural growth, decline and change.
Through the use of Financial Trend Monitoring System (FTMS) the City of Whitewater can evaluate eleven "factors" which represent the primary forces that influence financial conditions. Associated with these factors are forty-two "indicators" that measure different aspects of nine of the factors. Not all factors or indicators are applicable to the City of Whitewater. Some of the major "factors" are debt structure, revenues, and expenditures, operating positional and intergovernmental constraints. Indicators which influence the factors are growth, population, long-term debt, property value and distribution, attitudes towards taxes and services, and fund balances.
The FTMS shows us 20 years of financial history for the City of Whitewater. The document has been updated yearly for the past 7 years. It is hoped that the FTMS will give us an "early" warning of unfavorable trends so they can be dealt with. We should be able to use the FTMS to highlight the positive trends that the City of Whitewater has as well.
