Question

On January 1, 2015, 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 post-closure work. Of these totals, the city must pay $50,000 on December 31 of each year for preliminary closure work. At the end of 2015, the landfill reached 3 percent of capacity. At the end of 2016, the landfill reached 9 percent of capacity. Also at the end of 2016, 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 2015 and 2016 on the government-wide financial statements?
b. Assuming that the landfill is reported within the general fund, what journal entries are made in 2015 and 2016 on the government-wide financial statements?
c. Assuming that the landfill is viewed as an enterprise fund, what journal entries are made in 2015 and 2016 on fund financial statements?
d. Assuming that the landfill is reported within the general fund, what journal entries are made in 2015 and 2016 on fund financial statements?
