In 2010, the City of Coyote received a $320,000 cash grant from the state to stop air pollution. Assume that although a special revenue fund could have been set up, the money remained in the General Fund. Cash was received immediately but had to be returned if the city had not lowered air pollution by 25 percent by 2013. On December 31, 2010, Coyote spent $210,000 of this money for a large machine to help begin to reduce pollution. The machine is expected to last for five years and was recorded as an expenditure in the General Fund and as an asset on the government-wide financial statements where it was depreciated based on the straight-line method and the half-year convention. Because the money had been received, all $320,000 was recorded as a revenue on both the fund-based and the government-wide financial statements.
a. What was the correct change for 2010 in the General Fund's balance?
b. What was the correct overall change in the net assets reported on the government-wide financial statements?
