OpenMSD: MSD's Financial Transparency Initiative
OpenMSD: Annual Budgets
    Back to OpenMSD Home


Each year the MSD Finance Department along with the rest of the MSD operating divisions prepare their annual operating and capital budgets for the upcoming fiscal year. MSD’s fiscal year runs between July 1 and June 30. After approval of its budget by the MSD Board (and if required, the Louisville Metro Council), MSD publishes the “Louisville and Jefferson County, Kentucky Metropolitan Sewer District Revenue Fund Budget and Construction & Acquisition Fund Budget” for the next fiscal year. This document highlights the operating and capital budget of MSD at a high level but also presents the budgets of each of the divisions of MSD and drills down to the department level. Both the operating and capital budgets are approved as a one-year budget but a five-year capital plan is presented in the budget document to better represent the scope and breadth of MSD’s programs.

Frequently Asked Questions: (Click on the question to see the answer)

1. How do I compare MSD budgets from one year to another?
By accessing each year’s budget report you should be able to compare one year to another. The Operating Budget section shows the actual expenditures for the previous two fiscal years and the current fiscal year approved budget.

2. Why does the Capital Budget for FY 2014 look different than prior years?
Beginning in FY 2014 a different cash flow system was implemented. The format of the Capital Budget was still being developed when FY 2014 Budget had to be published. It will no doubt evolve over the next year to its final format.

3. What do all the headings in the Capital Budget section of the budget report mean for the budget years prior to FY 2014?
The column definitions for the spreadsheet in the Capital Budget section of the budget report are below:

Watershed/BID – This is the project number used to track expenditures for the capital project.

Project Name – This is the name of the project.

Current FY Approved Project Budget – This is the previous year’s approved project budget.

Proposed Amendments – This is the difference between the newly approved fiscal year budget and last year’s approved budget.

FY Proposed Project Budget – This is the newly approved budget amount for the capital projects.

Commitments on Completed Projects – Amount of money still owed for a recently completed capital project.

Project to Date Expenditure – The amount of money expended on the capital project since inception of the project.

FY YTD Expenditure – The amount of money expended on the capital project for the previously completed fiscal year.

Remainder FY Projected – The amount of funds estimated to complete the current fiscal year spending.

FY Projected – The amount of money estimated to spend on the capital project during that particular fiscal year.

Thereafter – All monies needed to complete the capital project from the final fiscal year in the sheet. (I.e. – 2017 thru the year the project ends)

4. Does Metro Council approve MSD’s budgets?
MSD prepares its annual operating and capital budget during the months of April and May each year. Upon its completion and approval of the budget by the MSD Board, the budget is submitted to the Metro Council for their information. If a rate increase is being proposed and it’s more than seven percent, then Metro Council’s approval is required.
