These financial statements are the responsibility of the Town of Nantucket's management. Our responsibility is to express opinions on these financial statements based on our audit. We did not audit the financial statements of Nantucket Islands Land Bank discretely presented component unit. Those financial statements were audited by other auditors whose reports thereon have been furnished to us, and our opinion, insofar as it relates to the amounts included for the Nantucket Islands Land Bank discretely presented component unit, is based on the report of the other auditor. We conducted our audit in accordance with auditing standards generally accepted in the United States of America and the standards applicable to financial audits contained in Government Auditing Standards, issued by the Comptroller General of the United States. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinions. In our opinion, based on our audit and the report of other auditors, the financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the respective financial position of the governmental activities, the business-type activities, each major fund, and the aggregate remaining fund information of the Town of Nantucket, Massachusetts, as of June 30, 2009, and the respective changes in financial position and cash flows, where applicable, thereof for the fiscal year then ended in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. In accordance with Government Auditing Standards, we have also issued our report dated January 5, 2010 on our consideration of the Town of Nantucket, Massachusetts’ internal control over financial reporting and our tests of its compliance with certain provisions of laws, regulations, contracts, grant agreements and other matters. The purpose of that report is to describe the scope of our testing of internal control over financial reporting and compliance and the results of that testing, and not to provide an opinion on the internal control over financial reporting or on compliance. That report is an integral part of an audit performed in accordance with Government Auditing Standards and should be read in conjunction with this report in considering the results of our audit. Our audit was made for the purpose of forming an opinion on the financial statements taken as a whole. The combining fund statements, as listed in the table of contents, are presented for the purpose of supplementary analysis and are not a required part of the financial statements of the Town of Nantucket, Massachusetts. Such supplementary information has been subjected to the auditing procedures applied in the audit of the financial 2 statements and, in our opinion, is fairly presented in all material respects in relation to the financial statements taken as a whole. Management’s discussion and analysis, located on the following pages, and the schedule of revenues, expenditures and changes in fund balance – general fund – budgetary basis, retirement system schedule of funding progress, retirement system schedule of employer contributions, other post-employment benefit plan schedule of funding progress and employer contributions and other post-employment benefit plan actuarial methods and assumptions located after the notes to the basic financial statements, are not a required part of the basic financial statements but are supplementary information required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. We have applied certain limited procedures, which consisted principally of inquiries of management regarding the methods of measurement and presentation of the required supplementary information. However, we did not audit the information and express no opinion on it. Wakefield, Massachusetts January 5, 2010 Town of Nantucket, Massachusetts 3 Management’s Discussion and Analysis Management’s Discussion and Analysis Town of Nantucket, Massachusetts 4 Basic Financial Statements Management’s Discussion and Analysis As management of the Town of Nantucket, we offer readers of these financial statements this narrative overview and analysis of the financial activities for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2009. The Town complies with financial reporting requirements issued by the Governmental Accounting Standards Board (GASB), and Management’s Discussion and Analysis are part of these requirements. The GASB is the authoritative standards-setting body that provides guidance on the preparation of financial statements in conformity with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP). External users of these financial statements, such as investors and rating agencies, rely on consistent reporting standards in order to compare the financial position of the Town of Nantucket with that of other governmental entities. Overview of the Financial Statements This discussion and analysis are intended to serve as an introduction to the Town of Nantucket’s basic financial statements. These basic financial statements comprise three components: 1) government-wide financial statements, 2) fund financial statements, and 3) notes to the financial statements. This report also contains other supplementary information in addition to the basic financial statements. Government-wide financial statements. The government-wide financial statements are designed to provide readers with a broad overview of finances, in a manner similar to private-sector business. The statement of net assets presents information on all assets and liabilities, with the difference between the two reported as net assets. Over time, increases or decreases in net assets may serve as a useful indicator of whether the financial position is improving or deteriorating. The statement of activities presents information showing how the government’s net assets changed during the most recent fiscal year. All changes in net assets are reported as soon as the underlying event giving rise to the change occurs, regardless of the timing of related cash flows. Thus, revenues and expenses are reported in this statement for some items that will only result in cash flows in future fiscal periods (e.g., uncollected taxes and earned but unused sick leave). Both of the government-wide financial statements distinguish functions that are principally supported by taxes and intergovernmental revenues (governmental activities) from other functions that are intended to recover all or a significant portion of their costs through user fees and charges (business-type activities). The governmental activities include general government, public safety, education, public works, community preservation, human services, culture and recreation, claims and judgments and interest. The business-type activities include the activities of the sewer department, solid waste, airport, and the Siasconset and Wannacomet water departments. The government-wide financial statements include not only the Town of Nantucket itself (known as the primary government), but also the County of Nantucket (County) and the Nantucket Islands Land Bank (Land Bank), which are legally separate entities. The County is included because the elected Board of Selectmen serves also as County Commissioners. The Land Bank is included because a portion of the Town’s debt was incurred on behalf of the Land Bank, and the Town guarantees other debt incurred by the Land Bank. Financial information for these component units is reported separately within the governmental and proprietary fund statements respectively. Fund financial statements. A fund is a grouping of related accounts that is used to maintain control over resources that have been segregated for specific activities or objectives. Fund accounting is used to ensure and Town of Nantucket, Massachusetts 5 Basic Financial Statements demonstrate compliance with finance-related legal requirements. All of the funds can be divided into three categories: governmental funds, proprietary funds, and fiduciary funds. Governmental funds. Governmental funds are used to account for essentially the same functions reported as governmental activities in the government-wide financial statements. However, unlike the government-wide financial statements, governmental fund statements focus on near-term inflows of spendable resources, as well as on balances of spendable resources available at the end of the fiscal year. Such information may be useful in evaluating a government’s near-term financing requirements. Because the focus of governmental funds is narrower than that of the government-wide financial statements, it is useful to compare the information presented for governmental funds with similar information presented for governmental activities in the government-wide financial statements. By doing so, readers may better understand the long-term impact of the government’s near-term financing decisions. Both the governmental fund balance sheet and the governmental fund statement of revenues, expenditures, and changes in fund balances provide a reconciliation to facilitate this comparison between governmental funds and governmental activities. The Town of Nantucket adopts an annual appropriated budget for its general fund. A budgetary comparison schedule has been provided for the general fund as required supplementary information to demonstrate compliance with this budget. Proprietary funds. The Town maintains two types of proprietary funds. Enterprise funds are used to report the same functions presented as business-type activities in the government- wide financial statements. The Town uses enterprise funds to account for its sewer department, solid waste, airport, and the Siasconset and Wannacomet water departments’ activities and activities of the Nantucket Islands Land Bank component unit. Internal service funds are used by the Town to report the activity of self funded insurance programs, including health and workers’ compensation insurance. Governmental accounting principles allow self funded insurance programs to be reported in either the general fund or in an internal service fund. The insurance programs benefit both the governmental and business-type activities of the Town; however, the governmental activities include more employees and retirees than the business-type activities. For that reason, the internal service funds are included within the category of governmental activities in the government-wide financial statements. Fiduciary funds. Fiduciary funds are used to account for resources held for the benefit of parties outside the government. Fiduciary funds are not reflected in the government-wide financial statement because the resources of those funds are not available to support the Town’s own programs. The accounting used for fiduciary funds is much like that used for proprietary funds. Notes to the basic financial statements. The notes provide additional information that is essential to a full understanding of the data provided in the government-wide and fund financial statements. Financial Highlights as of the close of Fiscal 2009 • The total of assets exceeded liabilities (i.e., net assets) by $174 million for governmental activities, and $117 million for business type activities. • Governmental funds reported combined ending fund balances of $34 million. • Unreserved fund balance for the general fund totaled $7.9 million. • Total governmental funds debt totaled $78.2 million, and total enterprise fund debt totaled $112.3 million. Town of Nantucket, Massachusetts 6 Basic Financial Statements Government-wide Financial Analysis The following chart provides a summary of Governmental activities financial data for fiscal year 2009, with comparative fiscal 2008 information. Governmental Activities Balance at Balance at June 30, June 30, 2009 2008 Assets: Current assets……………………………………………$ 57,426,793 $ 57,632,959 Noncurrent assets (excluding capital)………………… 398,828 499,024 Capital assets, not being depreciated………………… 180,467,349 175,330,456 Capital assets, net of accumulated depreciation…… 29,394,863 27,777,272 Total assets………………………………………… 267,687,833 261,239,711 Liabilities: Current liabilities (excluding debt)…………………… 7,225,372 6,579,717 Noncurrent liabilities (excluding debt)………………… 8,740,740 1,221,905 Current debt……………………………………………… 13,474,322 11,976,816 Noncurrent debt………………………………………… 64,739,985 65,196,354 Total liabilities………………………………………94,180,419 84,974,792 Net Assets: Capital assets net of related debt……………………… 156,034,000 158,769,791 Restricted………………………………………………… 14,401,121 13,803,760 Unrestricted……………………………………………… 3,072,293 3,691,368 Total net assets……………………………………$ 173,507,414 $ 176,264,919 As noted earlier, net assets may serve over time as a useful indicator of a government’s financial position. For governmental activities, assets exceeded liabilities by $174 million at the close of fiscal year 2009. The largest portion of the Town’s net assets, $156 million, (90%), reflects investment in capital assets (e.g., land, buildings, machinery, and equipment), less any outstanding debt which was borrowed in order to build or acquire those assets. The Town uses these capital assets to provide services to citizens; consequently, these assets are not available for future spending. Although the investment in capital assets is reported net of related debt, it should be noted that the resources needed to repay this debt must be provided from other sources, since the capital assets themselves cannot be used to liquidate these liabilities. An additional portion of the net assets, $14.4 million (8%), represents resources that are subject to external restrictions on how they may be used. The remaining balance of unrestricted net assets, $3 million (2%), may be used to meet the government’s ongoing obligations to citizens and creditors. At the end of the current fiscal year, the Town reports positive balances in all three categories of net assets. Noncurrent liabilities include an accrued liability for other post-employment benefits in the amount of $7.4 million. This is the result of the Town’s implementation of GASB Statement No. 45, Accounting and Financial Reporting by Employers for Post-employment Benefits Other Than Pensions (OPEB). Current debt includes approximately $6.8 million of multi-purpose bond anticipation notes payable as well as $6.6 million of general obligation bonds due in fiscal year 2010.

Of that amount, $12.9 million was directly supported by program revenues consisting of charges for services, operating and capital grants and contributions. General revenues totaled $64.9 million, primarily coming from property taxes, motor vehicle excise, hotel/motel taxes, non- community preservation surtaxes, restricted state aid and other miscellaneous charges. Additionally, governmental activities reported capital contributions of $1.4 million to the sewer enterprise fund, and $5.3 million of transfers to business-type activities. The capital contribution is recorded for debt that is to be repaid with governmental funds which has been used to construct assets for the sewer enterprise fund. The $5.3 million in transfers to the solid waste enterprise fund consists of the Town’s initial budgeted transfer of $2,784,000 in taxes and general revenues to balance the solid waste budget; a mid-year decrease in anticipated solid waste revenue projections, which increased the subsidy by $1,465,605; a reserve fund transfer of $305,500; and $725,841 which represents the fiscal year 2008 certified retained earnings deficit. In total, governmental activities net assets decreased by approximately $3 million in Fiscal 2009. The key element of the decrease relates mainly to the implementation of GASB Statement No. 45 and the related expense accrual in the amount of $7.4 million. The Town experienced a 26% decrease in charges for services, a 57% decrease in capital grants, a 6% increase in operating grants and contributions and a 4% increase in real estate tax collections. Expenses increased in virtually all functional categories, except for community preservation, with the largest increase being in public safety.

The changes by fund are listed in the following table: Business-Type Activities Balance at Balance at Net June 30, June 30, Increase 2009 2008 (Decrease) Net Assets: Siasconset Water……………………………………… $ 4,072,117 $ 4,017,461 $ 54,656 Wannacomet Water Company………………………… 14,494,563 14,063,649 430,914 Nantucket Memorial Airport…………………………… 44,942,215 30,242,477 14,699,738 Sewer Enterprise Fund………………………………… 45,687,206 44,380,438 1,306,768 Solid Waste Enterprise Fund………………………… 7,975,078 9,927,351 (1,952,273) Total net assets……………………………………$ 117,171,179 $ 102,631,376 $14,539,803 The most significant factor in this change is a $14 million increase in net assets for Nantucket Memorial Airport which consisted mostly of state and federal capital grants for construction projects, including a new airport terminal. The decrease in the Solid Waste Enterprise Fund was mainly due to a decrease in tipping fees. At the end of the current fiscal year, the Town reports $117 million in net assets for its combined business-type activities. Financial Analysis of the Government’s Funds As noted earlier, the Town uses fund accounting to ensure and demonstrate compliance with finance-related legal requirements. Governmental funds. The focus of governmental funds is to provide information on near-term inflows, outflows, and balances of spendable resources. Such information is useful in assessing financing requirements. In particular, unreserved fund balance may serve as a useful measure of a government’s net resources available for spending at the end of the fiscal year. As of the end of the current fiscal year, governmental funds reported combined ending fund balances of $34.2 million, of which $10.8 million is general fund, and $23.4 million is nonmajor governmental funds. The general fund is the chief operating fund. At the end of fiscal 2009, unreserved fund balance of the general fund totaled $7.8 million, while total fund balance totaled $10.8 million. As a measure of the general fund’s liquidity, it may be useful to compare both unreserved fund balance and total fund balance to total fund expenditures. Unreserved fund balance represents 10.8% of total general fund expenditures and transfers out, while total fund balance represents 14.8% of that same amount. $3.2 million of the unreserved fund balance was designated at year end to support the 2010 budget. An additional $2.9 million was reserved for carry-over appropriations and encumbrances. While total fund balance showed a modest increase, the unreserved, undesignated fund balance decreased by $2.5 million during the fiscal year, mainly due to increases in designations for future budgets. Town of Nantucket, Massachusetts 11 Basic Financial Statements The Town also maintains a community preservation fund, classified within the non-major governmental funds which had a year end fund balance of $5.9 million. Of this amount, $4.5 million is designated for ongoing projects, by previous Annual Town Meeting votes. This fund is attributable to the Town’s acceptance of the Community Preservation Act, which allows the Town to impose a surcharge on property taxes and to receive state funds for specified uses related to the acquisition, creation, preservation and support of open space, historic resources, land for recreation use and community housing. In fiscal year 2009, the Town earned and accrued a year end receivable for state matching community preservation funds, of approximately $675,000. General Fund Budgetary Highlights The General fund budget consists of those appropriations voted at Annual Town Meeting, carryover encumbrances and appropriations from the previous year, amounts charged by the Commonwealth and deducted from state revenues, and amounts required to be raised as a result of any deficits. The Town’s budget may be changed by action of Town Meeting or, in the last two months of the fiscal year, by vote of the Board of Selectmen and the Finance Committee, with statutory limitation as to amount. The original appropriation budget and the carryover encumbrances and appropriations totaled $75.8 million. Changes during the year consisted largely of allocations between and among departments. The net decrease from changes to the appropriation budget totaled $826,000, which was a combination of $1.4 million in budget reductions and $726,000 in new appropriations. Total actual revenue was lower than estimated revenue by $372,000. At year end, outstanding purchase orders and carry-over appropriations and articles totaled approximately $2.9 million, which is reserved in fund balance at year end. The total of actual expenditures and these amounts reserved for future expenditures was lower than the final budget by approximately $1.6 million, a positive variance. The net of actual revenue and expense, compared to budgeted amounts, was a positive variance of $1.2 million. Capital Asset and Debt Administration In conjunction with the annual operating budget, the Town annually prepares a capital budget for the upcoming fiscal year and a Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) that is used as a guide for future capital expenditures. The Town’s investment in capital assets for its governmental and business-type activities as of June 30, 2009, totals $210 million in the governmental funds, and $181 million in the enterprise funds (net of accumulated depreciation). This investment in capital assets includes land, buildings, land improvements, equipment, vehicles and infrastructure. Current year fixed asset additions totaled $9.2 million for governmental activities, and $35.1 million for business- type activities. Long-term and short-term Debt At the end of the current fiscal year, the Town of Nantucket had total bonded debt outstanding of $190.5 million. The entire amount is classified as general obligation debt and is backed by the full faith and credit of the Town. Of this amount, $39.8 million is in short term notes and the remaining $150.7 is outstanding long term debt. The governmental fund portion of the outstanding debt is $78.2 million. The enterprise funds’ portion of the outstanding debt is $112.3 million.

Economic Factors and Next Year’s Budgets and Rates The Town’s tax base continued to grow in fiscal 2009. Taxable property increased by $195 million (.9%) in 2009. New growth provided additional tax revenue of $1 million in 2009 or 2.1% of the prior year’s levy base. The average residential assessed value was $1.9 million in 2009. The residential tax rate for 2009 was $2.76 per $1,000 of assessed value. The 2009 Annual and Special Town Meetings approved a fiscal year 2010 total budget of $109.5 million, including a total general fund budget of $75.9 million. The projected residential tax rate for 2010 is $2.86 per $1,000 of assessed value.

Town of Nantucket, Massachusetts 29 Basic Financial Statements Notes to Basic Financial Statements Fiscal Year Ended June 30, 2009 Town of Nantucket, Massachusetts 30 Basic Financial Statements NOTE 1 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES Notes to Basic Financial Statements The accompanying basic financial statements of the Town of Nantucket, Massachusetts (the Town) have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (GAAP). The Governmental Accounting Standards Board (GASB) is the recognized standard-setting body for establishing governmental accounting and financial reporting principles. The significant accounting policies are described herein. A. Reporting Entity The Town is a municipal corporation that is governed by an elected five member Board of Selectmen. For financial reporting purposes, the Town has included all funds, organizations, agencies, boards, commissions and institutions. The Town has also considered all potential component units for which it is financially accountable as well as other organizations for which the nature and significance of their relationship with the Town are such that exclusion would cause the basic financial statements to be misleading or incomplete. As required by GAAP, these basic financial statements present the Town (the primary government) and its component units. Two entities have been included as component units in the reporting entity, because of the significance of their operational and/or financial relationships with the Town. Discretely Presented Component units – Discretely presented component units are entities that are legally separate from the Town, but for which the Town is financially accountable, or whose relationship with the Town is such that exclusion would cause the Town’s financial statements to be misleading or incomplete. These component units are reported in separate columns to emphasize that they are legally separate from the Town. In the Governmental Funds: (1) The County of Nantucket (County) has the same geographical boundaries as the Town of Nantucket, and the Town’s selectmen serve ex officio as the County Commissioners. The principal services provided by the County are the Registry of Deeds and the Sheriff’s Office. In the Enterprise Funds: (1) The Nantucket Islands Land Bank (Land Bank) was created by Chapter 669 of the Acts of 1983 of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts to acquire and manage open space and resource protection within Nantucket County. The Land Bank is administered by the Nantucket Islands Land Bank Commission comprised of five elected members. Availability of Financial Information for Component Units and Certain Town Enterprise Funds The Nantucket Islands Land Bank issues separate audited financial statements. A copy of the complete financial statements can be obtained by contacting them at 22 Broad Street, Nantucket, MA 02554. Nantucket Memorial Airport issues separate audited financial statements. A copy of the complete financial statements can be obtained by contacting them at 14 Airport Road, Nantucket, MA 025541. The Wannacomet Water Company issues separate audited financial statements. A copy of the complete financial statements can be obtained by contacting them at 1 Milestone Road, Nantucket, MA 025541. Notes to Basic Financial Statements Fiscal Year Ended June 30, 2009 Town of Nantucket, Massachusetts 31 Basic Financial Statements B. Government-Wide and Fund Financial Statements Government-Wide Financial Statements The government-wide financial statements (i.e., statement of net assets and the statement of changes in net assets) report information on all of the non-fiduciary activities of the primary government and its component units. Governmental activities, which are primarily supported by taxes and intergovernmental revenues, are reported separately from business-type activities, which are supported primarily by user fees and charges. Fund Financial Statements Separate financial statements are provided for governmental funds, proprietary funds, and fiduciary funds, even though fiduciary funds are excluded from the government-wide financial statements. Major individual governmental funds and major individual enterprise funds are reported as separate columns in the fund financial statements. Nonmajor funds are aggregated and displayed in a single column. Major Fund Criteria Major funds must be reported if the following criteria are met: • If the total assets, liabilities, revenues, or expenditures/expenses of an individual governmental or enterprise fund are at least 10 percent of the corresponding element (assets, liabilities, etc.) for all funds of that category or type (total governmental or total enterprise funds), and • If the total assets, liabilities, revenues, or expenditures/expenses of the individual governmental fund or enterprise fund are at least 5 percent of the corresponding element for all governmental and enterprise funds combined. Additionally, any other governmental or enterprise fund that management believes is particularly significant to the basic financial statements may be reported as a major fund. Internal service funds and fiduciary funds are reported by fund type. C. Measurement Focus, Basis of Accounting and Financial Statement Presentation Government-Wide Financial Statements The government-wide financial statements are reported using the economic resources measurement focus and the accrual basis of accounting. Under this method, revenues are recorded when earned and expenses are recorded when the liabilities are incurred. Real estate and personal property taxes are recognized as revenues in the fiscal year for which they are levied. Grants and similar items are recognized as revenue as soon as all eligibility requirements imposed by the provider have been met. The statement of activities demonstrates the degree to which the direct expenses of a particular function or segment are offset by program revenues. Direct expenses are those that are clearly identifiable with a specific function or segment. Program revenues include the following: • Charges to customers or applicants who purchase, use, or directly benefit from goods, services, or privileges provided by a given function or segment. • Grants and contributions that are restricted to meeting the operational requirements of a particular function or segment. Notes to Basic Financial Statements Fiscal Year Ended June 30, 2009 Town of Nantucket, Massachusetts 32 Basic Financial Statements • Grants and contributions that are restricted to meeting the capital requirements of a particular function or segment. Taxes and other items not identifiable as program revenues are reported as general revenues. For the most part, the effect of interfund activity has been removed from the government-wide financial statements. However, the effect of interfund services provided and used between functions is not eliminated as the elimination of these charges would distort the direct costs and program revenues reported for the functions affected. Fund Financial Statements Governmental fund financial statements are reported using the flow of current financial resources measurement focus and the modified accrual basis of accounting. Under the modified accrual basis of accounting, revenues are recognized when susceptible to accrual (i.e., measurable and available). Measurable means the amount of the transaction can be determined and available means collectible within the current period or soon enough thereafter to pay liabilities of the current period. Expenditures are recorded when the related fund liability is incurred, except for unmatured interest on general long-term debt which is recognized when due, and certain compensated absences and, claims and judgments which are recognized when the obligations are expected to be liquidated with current expendable available resources. Real estate and personal property tax revenues are considered available if they are collected within 60 days after fiscal year-end. Investment income is susceptible to accrual. Other receipts and tax revenues become measurable and available when the cash is received and are recognized as revenue at that time. Entitlements and shared revenues are recorded at the time of receipt or earlier if the susceptible to accrual criteria is met. Expenditure driven grants recognize revenue when the qualifying expenditures are incurred and all other grant requirements are met. The following major governmental funds are reported: The General Fund is the primary operating fund. It is used to account for all financial resources, except those that are required to be accounted for in another fund. The nonmajor governmental funds consist of other special revenue, capital projects and permanent funds that are aggregated and presented in the nonmajor governmental funds column on the governmental funds financial statements. The following describes the general use of these fund types: The Special Revenue Fund is used to account for the proceeds of specific revenue sources (other than permanent funds or capital projects funds) that are restricted by law or administrative action to expenditures for specified purposes. The Capital Projects Fund is used to account for financial resources to be used for the acquisition or construction of major capital facilities (other than those financed by enterprise and trust funds). The Permanent Fund is used to account for financial resources that are legally restricted to the extent that only earnings, not principal, may be used for purposes that support the governmental programs. Notes to Basic Financial Statements Fiscal Year Ended June 30, 2009 Town of Nantucket, Massachusetts 33 Basic Financial Statements Proprietary fund financial statements are reported using the flow of economic resources measurement focus and use the accrual basis of accounting. Under this method, revenues are recorded when earned and expenses are recorded when the liabilities are incurred. Proprietary funds distinguish operating revenues and expenses from nonoperating items. Operating revenues and expenses generally result from providing services and producing and delivering goods in connection with the proprietary funds principal ongoing operations. All revenues and expenses not meeting this definition are reported as nonoperating revenues and expenses. The following major proprietary funds and component unit are reported: The Siasconset Water enterprise fund is used to account for the Town’s water distribution activities within its service area. The Sewer enterprise fund is used to account for the Town’s sewer activities. The Solid Waste enterprise fund is used to account for the Town’s landfill activities. The Nantucket Memorial Airport enterprise fund is used to account for the operations of the Town’s airport. The Wannacomet Water Company enterprise fund is used to account for the Town’s water distribution activities within its service area. The internal service fund is used to account for the financing of services provided by one department to other departments or governmental units. This fund is used to account for risk financing activities related to health insurance and workers’ compensation. The Nantucket Islands Land Bank component unit is used to account for the activity of the Nantucket Islands Land Bank. Fiduciary fund financial statements are reported using the flow of economic resources measurement focus and use the accrual basis of accounting. Fiduciary funds are used to account for assets held in a trustee capacity for others that cannot be used to support the governmental programs. The following fiduciary fund types are reported: The private-purpose trust fund is used to account for trust arrangements, other than those properly reported in the pension trust fund or permanent fund, under which principal and investment income exclusively benefit individuals, private organizations, or other governments. The agency fund is used to account for assets held in a purely custodial capacity. Government-Wide and Fund Financial Statements For enterprise fund accounting, all applicable Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) pronouncements issued on or prior to November 30, 1989, are applied, unless those pronouncements conflict with or contradict GASB pronouncements.

The recognition of revenue related to accounts receivable reported in the governmental funds financial statements are reported under the modified accrual basis of accounting. Real Estate, Personal Property Taxes and Tax Liens Real estate and personal property taxes are levied and based on values assessed on January 1st of every year. Assessed values are established by the Board of Assessor’s for 100% of the estimated fair market value. Taxes are due on November 1st and May 1st and are subject to penalties and interest if they are not paid by the respective due date. Real estate and personal property taxes levied are recorded as receivables in the fiscal year of the levy. The Town has the legal authority to impose real estate tax liens on delinquent properties. Liens are recorded as receivables in the fiscal year they are imposed. Real estate receivables which have been secured via the tax lien process are considered 100% collectible. Accordingly, an allowance for uncollectibles is not reported. An allowance of uncollectibles for other real estate receivables is estimated based on historical trends and specific account analysis. Personal property taxes cannot be secured through the lien process. The allowance of uncollectibles is estimated based on historical trends and specific account analysis. Motor Vehicle and Other Excise Taxes Motor vehicle excise taxes are assessed annually for each vehicle registered and are recorded as receivables in the fiscal year of the levy. The Commonwealth is responsible for reporting the number of vehicles registered and the fair values of those vehicles. The tax calculation is the fair value of the vehicle multiplied by $25 per $1,000 of value. Boat excise taxes are assessed annually for each boat registered and are recorded as receivables in the fiscal year of the levy. The Commonwealth is responsible for reporting the number of boats registered and the fair value of those boats. The tax calculation is the fair value of the boat multiplied by $10 per $1,000 of value. The allowance for uncollectibles is estimated based on historical trends and specific account analysis. Departmental and Other Departmental and other receivables consist primarily of police and fire details and are recorded as receivables in the fiscal year accrued. The allowance of uncollectibles is estimated based on historical trends and specific account analysis. Notes to Basic Financial Statements Fiscal Year Ended June 30, 2009 Town of Nantucket, Massachusetts 35 Basic Financial Statements Special Assessments Special Assessments consist of betterments assessed to residents of Golf View Drive in relation to the Town’s Septic Loan Betterment program. The allowance of uncollectibles is estimated based on historical trends and specific account analysis. Intergovernmental Various federal and state grants for operating and capital purposes are applied for and received annually. For non-expenditure driven grants, receivables are recorded as soon as all eligibility requirements imposed by the provider have been met. For expenditure driven grants, receivables are recorded when the qualifying expenditures are incurred and all other grant requirements are met. These receivables are considered 100% collectible and therefore do not report an allowance for uncollectibles. Water Fees Water Fees for Siasconset Water are levied monthly based on individual meter readings. Water Fees for Wannacomet Water Company are levied monthly based on individual meter readings and average bills. All water fees are subject to penalties and interest if they are not paid by the respective due date. Unbilled water fees at year-end are accrued and are recorded as revenue in the current period.

Landfill Fees The outstanding receivable for Landfill Fees is comprised of annual commercial fees assessed to restaurants and inns and monthly tipping fees charged to private haulers. Airport Fees The outstanding receivable for Airport Fees is comprised primarily of fuel sales. Notes to Basic Financial Statements Fiscal Year Ended June 30, 2009 Town of Nantucket, Massachusetts 36 Basic Financial Statements F. Inventories Government-Wide and Fund Financial Statements Inventories of the Nantucket Memorial Airport and the Wannacomet Water Company are priced at the lower of cost or market, with cost being determined on the first-in, first-out method basis. Expendable supplies and small tools are not inventoried but rather expensed when purchased. All other inventories are recorded as expenditures at the time of purchase. Such inventories are not material in total to the government-wide and fund financial statements, and therefore are not reported. G. Restricted Assets Government-Wide and Fund Financial Statements Certain assets of the enterprise funds and component units are classified as restricted because their use is restricted by contract covenants. H. Capital Assets Government-Wide and Proprietary Fund Financial Statements Capital assets, which include land, construction in progress, land improvements, plant, buildings, vehicles, machinery and equipment, furniture, fixtures and company equipment, and infrastructure (e.g., roads, water mains, sewer mains, and similar items), are reported in the applicable governmental or business-type activity column of the government-wide financial statements, and the proprietary fund financial statements. Capital assets are recorded at historical cost or at estimated historical cost when actual historical cost could not be determined. Donated capital assets are recorded at the estimated fair market value at the date of donation. Except for the capital assets of the governmental activities column in the government-wide financial statements, construction period interest is capitalized on constructed capital assets. All purchases and construction costs in excess of $10,000 are capitalized at the date of acquisition or construction, respectively, with expected useful lives of greater than one year. Capital assets (excluding land) are depreciated on a straight-line basis. The estimated useful lives of capital assets are as follows: Estimated Useful Life (in years) Vehicles………………………………………… 5 Office equipment……………………………… 5-10 Shop equipment………………………………… 10-15 Runway improvements………………………… 20 Water infrastructure…………………………… 40-70 Buildings and improvements………………… 33-50 Capital Asset Type The cost of normal maintenance and repairs that do not add to the value of the assets or materially extend asset lives are not capitalized and are treated as expenses when incurred.

Use of Estimates Government-Wide and Fund Financial Statements The preparation of basic financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure for contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the basic financial statements and the reported amounts of the revenues and expenditures/expenses during the fiscal year. Actual results could vary from estimates that were used. R. Total Column Government-Wide Financial Statements The total column presented on the government-wide financial statements represents consolidated financial information.

Data in this column is not the equivalent of consolidated financial information. NOTE 2 – CASH AND INVESTMENTS A cash and investment pool is maintained that is available for use by all funds. Each fund type's portion of this pool is displayed on the balance sheet as "Cash and cash equivalents". The deposits and investments of the trust funds are held separately from those of other funds. Statutes authorize the investment in obligations of the U.S. Treasury, agencies, and instrumentalities, certificates of deposit, repurchase agreements, money market accounts, bank deposits and the State Treasurer's Investment Pool (the Pool). The Treasurer may also invest trust funds in securities, other than mortgages or collateral loans, which are legal for the investment of funds of savings banks under the laws of the Commonwealth. The Pool meets the criteria of an external investment pool. The Pool is administered by the Massachusetts Municipal Depository Trust (MMDT), which was established by the Treasurer of the Commonwealth who serves as Trustee. The fair value of the position in the Pool is the same as the value of the Pool shares. The Town participates in MMDT, which maintains a cash portfolio and a short-term bond fund with combined average maturities of approximately 3 months. Custodial Credit Risk – Deposits In the case of deposits, this is the risk that in the event of a bank failure, the Town of Nantucket’s deposits may not be returned to it.

Thus, net MWPAT loan repayments, including interest, are scheduled to be $57,622,245. The principal subsidies are guaranteed and therefore a $2,367,761 intergovernmental receivable has been reported in the enterprise fund financial statements. Since the Town is legally obligated for the total amount of the debt, such amounts have been reported in the accompanying basic financial statements. The fiscal year 2009 principal and interest subsidies totaled approximately $101,000 and $410,000, respectively.

Notes to Basic Financial Statements Fiscal Year Ended June 30, 2009 Town of Nantucket, Massachusetts 56 Basic Financial Statements NOTE 8 – RISK FINANCING The Town is exposed to various risks of loss related to torts; theft of, damage to and destruction of assets; errors and omissions; and natural disasters for which the Town carries commercial insurance. The amount of claim settlements has not exceeded insurance coverage in any of the previous three fiscal years. The Town is self-insured for its health insurance and workers’ compensation activities. These activities are accounted for in the internal service fund where revenues are recorded when earned and expenses are recorded when the liability is incurred. (a) Health Insurance The estimate of Incurred But Not Reported (IBNR) claims is based on history. At June 30, 2009, the amount of the liability for health insurance claims totaled $721,784. This liability is the best estimate based on available information. Changes in the reported liability since July 1, 2007, are as follows: Current Year Balance at Claims and Balance at Beginning of Changes in Claims Fiscal Fiscal Year Estimate Payments Year-End Fiscal Year 2008…………$ 672,278 $ 8,198,903 $ (8,160,762) $ 710,419 Fiscal Year 2009………… 710,419 9,102,460 (9,091,095) 721,784 (b) Workers’ Compensation Workers’ compensation claims are administered by a third party administrator and are funded on a pay- as-you-go basis from a trust fund for workers compensation. Annual appropriations are made to add to the trust fund. The estimated future workers’ compensation liability is based on history and injury type. At June 30, 2009, the amount of the liability for workers’ compensation claims totaled $93,146. This liability is the Town’s best estimate based on available information. Changes in the reported liability since July 1, 2007, are as follows: Current Year Balance at Claims and Balance at Beginning of Changes in Claims Fiscal Fiscal Year Estimate Payments Year-End Fiscal Year 2008………..$ 144,674 $ 312,975 $ (363,313) $ 94,336 Fiscal Year 2009……….. 94,336 102,296 (103,486) 93,146 NOTE 9 – PENSION PLAN Plan Description - The Town and the County contribute to the Barnstable County Retirement Association (the System), a cost-sharing multiple-employer defined benefit pension plan administered by the Barnstable County Retirement Board. Substantially all employees of both the Town and County are members of the System, except for public school teachers and certain administrators who are members of the Massachusetts Teachers Retirement System, to which the Town does not contribute. Pension benefits and administrative expenses paid Notes to Basic Financial Statements Fiscal Year Ended June 30, 2009 Town of Nantucket, Massachusetts 57 Basic Financial Statements by the Teachers Retirement Board are the legal responsibility of the Commonwealth. The amount of these on- behalf payments totaled approximately $1,802,000 for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2009, and, accordingly, are reported in the general fund as intergovernmental revenues and pension expenditures. The System provides retirement, disability and death benefits to plan members and beneficiaries. Chapter 32 of the MGL assigns authority to establish and amend benefit provisions of the plan. Cost-of-living adjustments granted between 1981 and 1997 and any increase in other benefits imposed by the Commonwealth’s state law during those years are borne by the Commonwealth and are deposited into the pension fund. Cost-of-living adjustments granted after 1997 must be approved by the Barnstable County Retirement Board and are borne by the System. The System issues a publicly available, unaudited, financial report in accordance with guidelines established by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts’ Public Employee Retirement Administration Commission (PERAC). That report may be obtained by contacting the System located at 99 Willow Street, Yarmouthport, Massachusetts, 02675. Funding Policy - Plan members are required to contribute to the System at rates ranging from 5% to 11% of annual covered compensation. The Town and County are required to pay into the System their share of the system-wide actuarially determined contribution that is apportioned among the employers based on active current payroll. Administrative expenses are funded through investment earnings. Chapter 32 of the MGL governs the contributions of plan members and the Town. The Town’s contributions to the System for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2007, 2008 and 2009 totaled $3,058,753, $3,346,353, and $3,643,915 respectively, which equaled its required contributions for each fiscal year. The County’s contribution to the System for the fiscal years ended June 30, 2007, 2008 and 2009 were $128,612, $138,012 and $145,083 respectively, which equaled its required contributions for each fiscal year. The schedule of funding progress, presented as required supplementary information, following the notes to the basic financial statements, presents multiyear trend information about whether the actuarial value of plan assets is increasing or decreasing over time relative to the actuarial accrued liability for benefits. Additionally, the schedule of employer contributions, presented as required supplementary information, following the notes to the basic financial statements, presents multiyear trend information for required and actual contributions relating to the cost-sharing plan as a whole, of which the Town is one participating employer, as well as the Town’s proportionate share of the plan’s annual contributions. This information is designed to be helpful for understanding the scale of the information presented relative to the Town. NOTE 10 – POST-EMPLOYMENT BENEFITS OTHER THAN PENSIONS Fiscal year 2010 is the initial year that the Town has implemented GASB Statement 45, Accounting and Financial Reporting by Employers for Post-Employment Benefits Other Than Pensions (GASB 45). As allowed by GASB 45, the Town has established the net Other Post-Employment Benefits (OPEB) obligation at zero at the beginning of the transition year and has applied the measurement and recognition requirements of GASB 45 on a prospective basis plan. Chapter 32B of the MGL assigns authority to establish and amend benefit provisions of the plan. Benefit provisions are negotiated between the Town and the unions representing Town employees and are renegotiated each bargaining period. The Retiree Health Plan does not issue a publicly available financial report. Funding Policy – Contribution requirements are also negotiated between the Town and union representatives. The required contribution is based on a pay-as-you-go financing requirement. The Town contributes between 80 and 90 percent of the cost of current-year premiums for eligible retired plan members and their spouses. Plan members receiving benefits contribute the remaining 10 to 20 percent of their premium costs. For fiscal year 2009, the Town contributed $2,534,000 to the plan, and member contributions totaled $506,800. Notes to Basic Financial Statements Fiscal Year Ended June 30, 2009 Town of Nantucket, Massachusetts 58 Basic Financial Statements Annual OPEB Cost and Net OPEB Obligation – The Town’s annual other post-employment benefit (OPEB) cost (expense) is calculated based on the annual required contribution of the employer (ARC), an amount actuarially determined in accordance with the parameters of GASB Statement 45. The ARC represents a level of funding that, if paid on an ongoing basis, is projected to cover the normal cost each year and amortize any unfunded actuarial liabilities (or funding excess) over a period not to exceed thirty years. The components of the Town’s annual OPEB cost for the year, the amount actually contributed to the plan, and changes in the Town’s net OPEB obligation are summarized in the following table: Normal cost………………………………………………………$ 2,551,000 Amortization of unfunded actuarial accrued liability………… 8,194,000 Annual OPEB cost (expense)……………………………… 10,745,000 Contributions made……………………………………………… (2,534,000) Increase in net OPEB obligation……………………………… 8,211,000 Net OPEB obligation - beginning of year……………………… - Net OPEB obligation - end of year…………………………… $ 8,211,000 The Town’s annual OPEB cost, the percentage of annual OPEB cost contributed to the plan, and the net OPEB obligation for fiscal year 2009 was as follows: Percentage of Fiscal Year Annual Annual OPEB Net OPEB Ended OPEB Cost Cost Contributed Obligation 6/30/2009 $ 10,745,000 24% $ 8,211,000 Funded Status and Funding Progress – The funded status of the Plan as of the most recent actuarial valuation date, June 30, 2007, is as follows: Actuarial Actuarial Accrued Unfunded Actuarial Value of Liability (AAL) AAL Funded Valuation Assets Projected Unit Credit (UAAL) Ratio Date (A) (B) (B-A) (A/B) 7/1/2007 $ - $ 104,980,000 $ 104,980,000 0% Actuarial valuations of an ongoing plan involve estimates of the value of reported amounts and assumptions about the probability of occurrence of events far into the future. Examples include assumptions about future employment, mortality, and the healthcare cost trend. Amounts determined regarding the funded status of the plan and the annual required contributions of the employer are subject to continual revision as actual results are compared with past expectations and new estimates are made about the future. The schedule of funding progress, presented as required supplementary information following the notes to the financial statements, presents multiyear trend information about whether the actuarial value of plan assets is increasing or decreasing over time relative to the actuarial accrued liabilities for benefits. Notes to Basic Financial Statements Fiscal Year Ended June 30, 2009 Town of Nantucket, Massachusetts 59 Basic Financial Statements Actuarial Methods and Assumptions – Projections of benefits for financial reporting purposes are based on the substantive plan (the plan as understood by the employer and the plan members) and include the types of benefits provided at the time of each valuation and the historical pattern of sharing of benefit costs between the employer and plan members to that point. The actuarial methods and assumptions used include techniques that are designed to reduce the effects of short-term volatility in actuarial accrued liabilities and the actuarial value of assets, consistent with the long-term perspective of the calculations. In the June 30, 2007, actuarial valuation, actuarial liabilities were determined using the projected unit credit cost method. The actuarial assumptions included a 4.00% investment return assumption, calculated based on the funded level of the plan at the valuation date. The UAAL is being amortized over a 30 year period. The remaining amortization period at June 30, 2009 is 29 years. NOTE 11 – LANDFILL CLOSURE State and Federal laws and regulations require the Town to construct a final capping system on its landfill site when it stops accepting waste and to perform certain maintenance and monitoring functions at the site after closure. The landfill operates under an Administrative Consent Order (ACO) with the Department of Environmental Protection. The ACO was amended in fiscal 2009 to allow for landfill mining over a five year period. Landfill mining will reduce the footprint of the unlined area that will eventually be capped and closed. The landfill maintains three cells with closure dates currently estimated to be fiscal 2013, 2014 and 2026. The Town has reflected a $2,428,000 closure liability at June 30, 2009, as an obligation of the solid waste enterprise fund. This amount is based upon estimates of what it would cost to perform all closure costs and post-closure care. Actual costs may be higher due to inflation, changes in technology, or changes in regulations. NOTE 12 – COMMITMENTS   Construction Contracts:   The Town has a contract with Carlin Contracting for the Surfside Waste Water Treatment Facility upgrade and expansion. At year end, the open contract totaled approximately $750,000. The Town has a contract with Skanska USA Building, Inc. for construction of the new airport terminal.

Notes to Basic Financial Statements Fiscal Year Ended June 30, 2009 Town of Nantucket, Massachusetts 60 Basic Financial Statements The Town has a contract the Lawrence Lynch for Backus Lane Playing Fields. At year end, the open contract totaled approximately $400,000. NOTE 13 – CONTINGENCIES The Town participates in a number of federal award programs. Although the grant programs have been audited in accordance with the provisions of the Single Audit Act Amendments of 1996 through June 30, 2009, these programs are still subject to financial and compliance audits. The amount, if any, of expenditures which may be disallowed by the granting agencies cannot be determined at this time, although it is expected such amounts, if any, to be immaterial. Various legal actions and claims are pending. Litigation is subject to many uncertainties, and the outcome of individual litigated matters is not always predictable. Although the amount of liability, if any, at June 30, 2009, cannot be ascertained, management believes any resulting liability should not materially affect the financial position at June 30, 2009. NOTE 14 – SUBSEQUENT EVENT In accordance with Chapter 61 of the acts of 2009, An Act Transferring County Sheriffs to the Commonwealth, as of January 1, 2010, the office of the Nantucket County Sheriff will be transferred to the Commonwealth. With this transfer, all functions, duties and responsibilities of the Sheriff’s office will be transferred to the Commonwealth, and the Sheriff will become an employee of the Commonwealth. As a result, all valid liabilities and debts of the Sheriff’s office, which are in force on the effective date of the act, will become obligations of the Commonwealth as of that date. Additionally, all assets of the Sheriff’s Office will be transferred to the Commonwealth. NOTE 15 – IMPLEMENTATION OF NEW GASB PRONOUNCEMENTS During fiscal year 2009, the Town has implemented the following GASB pronouncements: The GASB issued Statement #45, Accounting and Financial Reporting by Employers for Postemployment Benefits Other Than Pensions, which is required to be implemented in Fiscal 2010. This pronouncement required additional disclosure and it impacted the basic financial statements The GASB issued Statement #55, The Hierarchy of Generally Accepted Accounting Principles for State and Local Governments. This standard did not impact the basic financial statements. The GASB issued Statement #56, Codification of Accounting and Reporting Guidance Contained in the AICPA Statements on Auditing Standards. The standards in this statement incorporate certain accounting and financial reporting guidance included in the Statements on Auditing Standards of the AICPA into the state and local governmental accounting and financial reporting standards.

Budgetary Information Municipal Law requires the adoption of a balanced budget. An annual budget is prepared by Town Administration, reviewed and forwarded by the Board of Selectmen, reviewed and recommended by the Finance Committee to Annual Town Meeting for adoption by positive vote. Increases or decreases to the originally adopted budget require approval at a Special Town Meeting. Transfers between and within departments subsequent to the approval of the annual budget typically require approval at a Special Town Meeting or in certain circumstances by vote of the Finance Committee and Board of Selectmen, as outlined in Massachusetts General Law. The majority of appropriations are non-continuing, which lapse at the end of each fiscal year. Others are continuing appropriations for which the governing body has authorized that an unspent balance from a prior fiscal year be carried forward and made available for spending in the current fiscal year. These carry forwards are included as part of the subsequent fiscal year’s original budget. Generally, expenditures may not exceed the legal level of spending (salaries, expenses and capital) authorized for an appropriation account. However, the payment of debt service is statutorily required, regardless of whether such amounts are appropriated. Additionally, expenditures for disasters, natural or otherwise, and final claims and judgments may exceed the level of spending authorized by two-thirds majority vote of the Committee. An annual budget is adopted for the general fund in conformity with the guidelines described above. The Town’s original fiscal year 2009 budget includes $73,670,340 in appropriations and other amounts to be raised and $2,142,523 in amounts carried forward from the previous fiscal year. During fiscal year 2009, the Town’s budget decreased by $826,483 mainly due to a combination of $1.4 million in budget reductions and a vote to transfer available funds of $725,841 to the Solid Waste Enterprise Fund. The Town Accountant’s Office has the responsibility to ensure that budgetary control is maintained. Budgetary control is exercised through the accounting system. 2. Budgetary - GAAP Reconciliation For budgetary financial reporting purposes, the Uniform Municipal Accounting System basis of accounting (established by the Commonwealth) is followed, which differs from the GAAP basis of accounting. A reconciliation of budgetary-basis to GAAP-basis results for the general fund for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2009, is presented below: Net change in fund balance - budgetary basis…………………$ 75,801 Basis of accounting differences: Recognition of revenue based on available criteria………… 378,724 Accrued expenditures…………………………………………… (780,659) Accrued payroll…………………….…………………………… 500,538 Recognition of revenue for on-behalf payments……………… 1,802,000 Recognition of expenditures for on-behalf payments………… (1,802,000) Net change in fund balance - GAAP basis………………………$ 174,404 Notes to Required Supplementary Information Fiscal Year Ended June 30, 2009 Town of Nantucket, Massachusetts 71 Required Supplementary Information 3. Appropriation Deficits During fiscal year 2009, none of the Town’s general fund expenditures exceeded budgeted appropriations. NOTE B – PENSION PLAN The Town and the County contribute to the Barnstable County Retirement Association (“Retirement System”), a cost-sharing, multiple-employer defined benefit pension plan (“Plan”) administered by the Barnstable County Retirement Board. The Retirement System provides retirement, disability, and death benefits to members and beneficiaries. Chapter 32 of the MGL assigns authority to establish and amend benefit provisions of the Plan. Plan members are required to contribute to the Retirement System at rates ranging from 5% to 11% of annual covered compensation. The Town and County are required to pay into the Retirement System its share of the systemwide actuarially determined contribution which is apportioned among the employers based on active covered payroll. The schedule of funding progress, presented as required supplementary information, following the notes to the basic financial statements, presented multiyear trend information about whether the actuarial value of plan assets is increasing or decreasing over time relative to the actuarial accrued liability for benefits. Additionally, the schedule of employer contributions, presented as required supplementary information, following the notes to the basic financial statements, presents multiyear trend information for required and actual contributions relating to the cost-sharing plan as a whole, of which the Town is one participating employer, as well as the Town’s proportionate share of the plans annual contributions. This information is designed to be helpful for understanding the scale of the information presented relative to the Town. The following actuarial methods and assumptions were used in the Retirement System’s most recent actuarial valuation: Notes to Required Supplementary Information Fiscal Year Ended June 30, 2009 Town of Nantucket, Massachusetts 72 Required Supplementary Information Actuarial Methods and Assumptions: Valuation Date…………………………………………………January 1, 2007 Actuarial Cost Method…………………………………………Entry Age Normal Cost Method Amortization Method…………………………………………Increasing at 4.50% per year Incentive, 21 years from July 1, 2007 for 2002 and 2003 Early Retirement Incentives and remaining unfunded liability Asset Valuation Method………………………………………5-year smoothing of investment returns greater (less) than expected Actuarial Assumptions: Investment rate of return……………………………………8.25% Projected salary increases…………………………………5.00% Cost of living adjustments………………………………… 3.0% for the first $12,000 of retirement income Plan Membership: Retired participants and beneficiaries receiving benefits……………………………………… 2,267 Terminated participants entitled to a return of their employee contributions………………… 670 Terminated participants with a vested right to a deferred or immediate benefit……………… 117 Active participants…………………………………………………………………………………… 5,314 Total…………………………………………………………………………………………………… 8,368 Remaining Amortization Period………………………………1 year from July 1, 2007 for 1992 Early NOTE C – OTHER POST-EMPLOYMENT BENEFITS The Town administers a single-employer defined benefit healthcare plan (“the Retiree Health plan”). The plan provides lifetime healthcare for eligible retirees and their spouses through the Town’s health insurance plan, which covers both active and retired members, including teachers. The Town currently finances its other post-employment benefits (OPEB) on a pay-as-you-go basis. As a result, the funded ratio (actual value of assets expressed as a percentage of the actuarial accrued liability) is 0%. In accordance with Governmental Accounting Standards, the Town has recorded its OPEB cost equal to the actuarial determined annual required contribution (ARC) which includes the normal cost of providing benefits for the year and a component for the amortization of the total unfunded actuarial accrued liability of the plan. The Schedule of Funding Progress presents multi-year trend information which compares, over time, the actuarial accrued liability for benefits with the actuarial value of accumulated plan assets. Since this is the Town’s initial year of implementation of GASB Statement 45, information for prior years is not available. Projections of benefits for financial reporting purposes are based on the substantive plan and included the types of benefits provided at the time of each valuation and the historical pattern of sharing of benefit cost between the employer and plan members to that point. The actuarial methods and assumptions used include techniques that are designed to reduce the effects of short-term volatility in actuarial accrued liabilities and the actuarial value of assets, consistent with the long-term perspective of the calculations. The Schedule of Actuarial Methods and Assumptions presents factors that significantly affect the identification of trends in the amounts reported.
