Financial Transparency

The sections below provide a detailed look at M1W's financial strategies and award-winning financial reports. For a quick look at our financials, click here for our "Budget in Brief," a two-page budget summary. For the most current report for each area listed, use the "CY" links.

Each year an annual Operating and ten-year Capital Budget are adopted for the Fiscal Year (FY) from July 1st through June 30th. These budgets have won awards from the Governmental Finance Officers Association (GFOA) and California Society of Municipal Finance Officers (CSMFO).

The Capital Budget is designed to identify capital expenditures for the next ten years and to plan appropriately for how to complete those projects within projected revenues and staffing capacity. In determining the priority of a proposed project, staff evaluate them for urgency, feasibility, and enhancements towards the community, health, and safety.

The annual Capital Improvement Budget is $69 million and the ten-year plan totals $139 million (excluding $123 million of unfunded projects for future years) which consists of:

Project 10 Year Funded / Unfunded Amounts
Pure Water Monterey $54 million (total $124 million including prior years)
Salinas Stormwater / Wastewater $10 million
Pump Station Rehabilitation $30 million / $7 million unfunded
Plant Infrastructure $29 million / $126 million unfunded
Sewer Outfall / Other $12 million sewer outfall / $4 million other

The Agency develops an annual Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR), for which it has won awards for excellence from GFOA. The Agency also prepares a Popular Annual Financial Report (PAFR) which is prepared in accordance with standards established by GFOA and is a summary of the CAFR. The CAFR is audited by certified public accountants. These reports contain an overview of M1W and a discussion and analysis of the Agency's financial performance during the previous FY.
