1. Per a bond agreement the county must maintain a cash balance equal to six months’ interest—$300,000.
2. The county council voted to set aside in a special bank account $30,000 per year to pay for the county’s centennial anniversary celebration, which will take place in five years. The current balance in the bank account is $120,000.
3. Legislation imposed by the state in which the county is located requires all counties to maintain a cash reserve equal to 5 percent of the prior year’s expenditures. The required amount for the current year is $60,000.
4. The county has goods on order of $80,000, for which it will have to make payment early in the following fiscal year.
5. The county maintains an inventory of supplies of $70,000.
