The City of Paradise Falls plans to develop a golf course during 2013 and account for it as the Golf Enterprise Fund (GEF). The course will be built on a parcel of land to be purchased from a private party. The planned out- of- pocket costs for the new course and their financing are as follows:
Spending
Acquisition of land from private party........... $ 500,000
Installation of sod, sprinklers, landscaping, and fencing .... 1,000,000
Construction of clubhouse ............... 3,000,000
.......................... $ 4,500,000
Financing
Contribution from the General Fund ............... $ 1,500,000
Term revenue bonds at 8 percent per annum, interest payable semiannually. 3,000,000
.............................. $ 4,500,000
The city plans to sell the bonds on February 1, 2013. Because the bonds are a term issue, bond principal matures in full on February 1, 2023. Interest is payable each August 1 and February 1, beginning August 1, 2013. The 1,begin-ningAugust1,2013.The bond covenant requires that assets equal to one- tenth of the bond principal be transferred to a restricted account within the GEF on December 31 of each year. Paradise Falls observes a calendar fiscal year.
Kowitt Design and Construction, Inc. has been awarded the contract to develop the golf course. Construction will commence February 15, 2013, and be completed no later than May 31, so it can open for business during June.
The contract stipulates that progress billings from Kowitt will be paid within 30 days of receipt, with 5 percent retainage held pending completion and acceptance of the project. The city engineer will inspect the contractor’s work and approve progress payments. Accounting for the GEF will be done by the city’s existing accounting department (a General Fund department), which will bill the GEF for services rendered at the end of the year. To help the GEF get on its feet financially, no interfund payables will be settled in cash during 2013. Prepare
(a) Journal entries (including closing entries) to record the following events and transactions for the year ended December 31, 2013, in the Golf Enterprise Fund. The corresponding entries that would be made in other funds are not required. In addition, prepare
