Solvency the ability of the Town of Chili generate enough resources to cover near term and long term liabilities?  For example does long term debt seem high?

Notes to Financial Statements.   List items from the notes to financial statements that raise a question or provide clarity and understanding to the basic financial statements.  Describe why you are listing them.  Include 3- 5 items in your list.

Calculate Financial Statement Ratios (80 points)
Using the chart below (which replicates portions of the:  10 Point Test Ratios for Overland Park, KS in FY2015 on page 88 in Kyoko and Marlowe).   In the Ten Point Test EXCEL file (below) calculate as many of the ten ratios for which data is available for the Town of Chili.  The Town of Chili has no enterprise funds so the Coverage 2 ratio cannot be calculated.  After calculating the ratios use the table at the bottom (also in the EXCEL spreadsheet) to assign 10 Point Test values to each calculated ratio as indicated in Kioko and Marlowe on pages  88-92.   Use the Score column in the Excel spreadsheet to record the assigned value (based on the quartile of the calculated ratio).   On the spreadsheet briefly discuss how you would interpret the “Total” if all the data were available.  Submit your Excel file to the drop box for Part B.
