Question

The city maintains a landfill that has been recorded within its parks. The landfill generated program revenues of $4,000 in Year 4 and cash expenses of $15,000. It also paid $3,000 cash for a piece of land. These transactions were recorded as would have been anticipated, but no other recording was made this year.
