Question

On January 1, 2010, the City of Hastings created a solid waste landfill that it expects to reach capacity gradually over the next 20 years. If the landfill were to be closed at the current time, closure costs would be approximately $1.2 million plus an additional $700,000 for postclosure work. Of these totals, the city must pay $50,000 on December 31 of each year for preliminary closure work. At the end of 2010, the landfill reached 3 percent of capacity. At the end of 2011, the landfill reached 9 percent of capacity. Also at the end of 2011, a reassessment is made; total closure costs are determined to be $1.4 million rather than $1.2 million.
a. Assuming that the landfill is viewed as an enterprise fund, what journal entries are made in 2010 and 2011 on the government-wide financial statements?
b. Assuming that the landfill is reported within the general fund, what journal entries are made in 2010 and 2011 on the government-wide financial statements?
c. Assuming that the landfill is viewed as an enterprise fund, what journal entries are made in 2010 and 2011 on fund-based financial statements?
d. Assuming that the landfill is reported within the general fund, what journal entries are made in 2010 and 2011 on fund-based financial statements?
