1. Prepare journal entries in the capital projects fund to reflect the following events and transactions:
a. The city approves (and gives accounting recognition to) the project’s budget of $9,027,000, of which $6,000,000 is to be funded by general obligation bonds, $2,500,000 from the state, and the remaining $527,000 from the general fund. The city estimates that construction costs will be $8,907,000 and bond issue costs $120,000.
