All dollar amounts are in thousands.

2. What is the nature of the net OPEB obligation and what is the most likely reason that it is zero?
3. Has the city been making the payments to the plan that are required of it per the actuarial computations for the years 2011 and following? How can you tell?
4. Has the fiscal health of the plan been improving or deteriorating in the three years for which data are presented?
5. Assuming that the compensation costs of all covered employers are accounted for in the city’s general fund, what would be the reported general fund expenditure for 2011? What would be the expense reported in the government-wide statement of activities?
