General Fund Revenue Base Note: Fluctuations occur in revenue from other sources due to the uncertain nature of certain revenue streams such as building permit revenues, fines, etc. The years 2005-2009 reflect actual numbers and the years 2010-2011 reflect budgeted amounts. The City historically budgets conservatively for these revenue streams.
