Nantucket CAFR 2014TOWN OF NANTUCKET, MASSACHUSETTS COMPREHENSIVE ANNUAL FINANCIAL REPORT For the Fiscal Year Ended June 30, 2014 On the cover: Nantucket Harbor offers an excellent and well-protected harbor with some of the finest marinas in the country. Every year, thousands of boaters flock to Nantucket to experience the history of the island while mooring in the harbor or tying off at one of the Town's many marinas. Above: Nantucket's Main Street is one of the most beautiful thoroughfares in the world. Visitors are always impressed with its serpentine, meandering lay-out, lovely old houses, bustling merchants and cobblestone pavement. The cobblestones, which are very unique, are a great part of the interest, charm and folklore of the island. Tracing their beginnings to approximately 1840, there are many who believe the cobblestones were ballast from empty whaling ships returning to their homeport after unloading their cargo abroad. Others believe that homeowners, tired of the muddy streets, all contributed to a fund and purchased the cobblestone from Gloucester for the direct purpose of constructing Main Street. A movement to pave over the cobblestone in 1919, during the growth of the then recently invented automobile was defeated.

Turbitt, Director of Municipal Finance This page intentionally left blank. INTRODUCTORY SECTION The Jared Coffin house, a historic mansion in the heart of Nantucket, is a rich landmark with ties to the sea that lines its sandy shores. Built in 1845 by Jared Coffin, one of the most successful ship owners during the island's prime whaling days, this splendid three-story mansion was constructed in the center of the Town as his family's residence. It was the first such ‘mansion' ever built on the island. Since it was erected, the Jared Coffin House has served as a centerpiece of the Nantucket Historic District and is presently a hotel comprised of 43 rooms.

Elizabeth Gibson Town & County Manager Letter of Transmittal November 1, 2014 Honorable Board of Selectmen and Citizens of the Town of Nantucket, Massachusetts: We are pleased to acknowledge that the Town of Nantucket has completed its inaugural installment of the Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR). The report, which was prepared by the Town’s De- partment of Municipal Finance, is for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2014. We are confident this trans- mission will be the beginning of what will be an annual endeavor. The Town is responsible for the accuracy, completeness and fairness of the data presented in the CAFR. This letter of transmittal and the management’s discussion and analysis, located in the financial section of the CAFR, provide a comprehensive financial overview of the Town and ensure that the financial and general operations of Town government remain transparent, and therefore open for easy viewing. The CAFR represents a complete set of financial statements in conformity with generally accepted ac- counting principles (GAAP) in the United States of America (GAAP), that are audited in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards by a firm of licensed certified public accountants. This CAFR meets and exceeds those requirements and presents itself as an informative resource for all those interest- ed in the financial activities of the Town. The report is designed to be used by the elected and appointed officials of the Town and others who are concerned with its management and progress such as bond analysts, banking institutions and rating agen- cies as well as its citizens and taxpayers. Since the report consists of management’s representations concerning the finances of the Town, manage- ment assumes full responsibility for the completeness and reliability of all of the information presented. In addition, management of the Town is responsible for establishing and maintaining an internal control structure designed to ensure the assets of the Town are protected from loss, theft or misuse and to ensure that adequate accounting data is compiled to allow for the preparation of financial statements in conformi- ty with GAAP. Because the cost of internal controls should not outweigh their benefits, the Town of Nantucket’s comprehensive framework of internal controls has been designed to provide reasonable ra- ther than absolute assurance that the financial statements will be free from material misstatement. Town of Nantucket, Massachusetts Page 1 of 124 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report The Town of Nantucket’s financial statements have been audited by Roselli, Clark and Associates, a firm of licensed certified public accountants. The goal of the independent audit is to provide on an annual basis reasonable assurance that the financial statements of the Town of Nantucket are free of material mis- statement. The independent audit involved examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements; assessing the accounting principles used and significant esti- mates made by management; and evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. The independent auditor concluded, based upon the audit, that there was a reasonable basis for rendering an unqualified opinion that the Town of Nantucket’s financial statements for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2014 are fair- ly presented in conformity with GAAP. The independent auditor’s report is presented as the first compo- nent of the financial section of this report. The independent audit of the financial statements of the Town of Nantucket is part of a broader, federally mandated “Single Audit” designed to meet the special needs of federal grantor agencies. The standards governing Single Audit engagements require the independent auditor to report not only on the fair presen- tation of the financial statements, but also on the audited government’s internal controls and compliance with legal requirements, with special emphasis on internal controls and legal requirements involving the administration of federal awards. These reports are available in the Town of Nantucket’s separately issued Single Audit Reports Pursuant to OMB Circular A-133. GAAP requires that management provide a narrative introduction, overview, and analysis to accompany the basic financial statements in the form of Management’s Discussion and Analysis (MD&A). This letter of transmittal is designed to complement that analysis and should be read in conjunction with it. The Town of Nantucket’s MD&A can be found immediately following the report of the independent auditors. Profile of the Town The Town of Nantucket is located on Nantucket Island and the adjacent islets of Tuckernuck and Mus- keget. It is situated in the Atlantic Ocean and lies approximately 25 miles south of Cape Cod. It is bound by Nantucket Sound on the north and west, and by the Atlantic Ocean on the south and east. The Town has a total area of 304 square miles of which 45 square miles is land and 259 square miles is water. The island comprises the County of Nantucket, the smallest county in Massachusetts by land area. Town of Nantucket, Massachusetts Page 2 of 124 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report Nantucket was deeded in 1641 by the English to merchants from Watertown, Massachusetts and Martha’s Vineyard. In 1659 these merchants sold their interest in Nantucket to a group of investors led by Tristram Coffin for 30 pounds and two beaver hats. These investors began to populate Nantucket and in the 1670s the Nantucket whaling industry began. It was part of Dukes County, New York until 1691 when it was transferred to the Province of Massachusetts Bay and became Nantucket County. Nantucket’s whaling industry boomed until around the mid 1800’s when it was surpassed by New Bedford. This coupled with the great fire of 1846 sent the Town into an economic decline from which it took the better part of a cen- tury to recover. In the 1950’s speculative developers began buying large parts of the island and restoring or developing them to eventually create a high-end market destination in the Northeast United States which is what it has evolved into in the present day. In 2008 Nantucket was cited as having home values amongst the highest in the United States, and presently, the Town’s equalized valuation (market value) ranks fourth in Massachusetts behind Boston, Cambridge and Brookline. Nantucket is a tourist destination and summer colony. The population of the island increases from just over 10,000 year round to approximately 50,000 in the summer. It is approximately 90 air miles from Boston and 170 air miles from New York City. The island is accessible year-round via ferry service served by the Woods Hole, Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket Steamship Authority (Steamship Authority) from the port of Hyannis. In calendar 2013, the Steamship Authority transported ap- proximately 600,000 passengers, 65,000 passenger vehicles and 45,000 commercial vehicles to Nan- tucket Island. The island is also served by Hy-line Cruises (the Hy-line), who operates one high speed ferry year-round and a larger, traditional ferry during peak seasons. Hy-line normally has over 200,000 embarkations annually and is very popular with professional daily commuters and contractors due to the speed of the transport and frequency of travel. Town of Nantucket, Massachusetts Page 3 of 124 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report The Nantucket Regional Transit Authority ("NRTA") provides seasonal fixed route shuttle service and year- round advanced reservation van service (“Your Island Ride”) for elders and persons with disabilities in Nantucket. The fixed route service operates daily mid-May through early October with complementary para-transit service; and a less frequent sched- ule operates before Memorial Day and after Labor Day. The Your Island Ride van service operates year-round Monday through Friday. The Town owns and operates its own municipal airport, Nantucket Memorial Airport, which provides daily service to Boston, New York, Hyannis, Martha’s Vineyard and New Bedford, in addition to less frequent travel to Philadelphia and Washington D.C. The airport is serviced by 6 airlines, some of which are seasonal. Governed by the Nantucket Airport Commission, the airport is a self-supporting enterprise fund. It is located 3 miles southeast of the center of town and in calendar 2013 with over 178,000 aircraft operations it was the second busiest airport in the Commonwealth trailing only Logan International Air- port in Boston. Town of Nantucket, Massachusetts Page 4 of 124 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report The Town offers a full range of other traditional municipal services including police and fire protec- tion, education, maintenance of streets, a sanitary landfill with materials recovery and composting fa- cilities, water and sewer services, parks and recrea- tional facilities. In addition, Nantucket also owns and operates Our Island Home, a nursing facility that provides long-term skilled nursing, short-term reha- bilitation, palliative and respite care for elderly is- land residents. It is a 45-bed smoke-free facility du- ally licensed in Medicaid and Medicare since August 2007. Nantucket prides itself on the quality of its school system. There are three Town administered schools in Nantucket; 1. Nantucket High School (grades 9 – 12) 2. Cyrus Pierce Middle School (grades 6 – 8) 3. Nantucket Elementary School (grades PK – 5) The executive branch of the public schools consists of a five-member School Committee elected to three- year terms on a staggered basis. The School Committee is the policy setting board. The Superintendent of Schools acts as the Chief Executive Officer responsible for enforcing the policies of the School Com- mittee, and the School Business Manager acts as the Chief Financial Officer. School enrollment for fiscal year 2014 is 1,483 (a 20% increase from 2009) and funding for schools is received via taxation and governmental revenues based on a minimum net school spending formula estab- lished by the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (ESE). The Town cur- rently spends almost double the minimum legal requirement on each student. Town of Nantucket, Massachusetts Page 5 of 124 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report The mission of the Nantucket Public Schools, in partnership with the community, is a “commitment to providing a challenging curriculum, skilled instruction, and a learning environment that responds to indi- vidual student academic needs. Work is guided by research and the belief that every student is capable of attaining high levels of educational achievement in preparation for meeting the rigorous demands of the twenty-first century.” The Town operates under the selectmen, town manager and open town meeting form of government. The five elected Selectmen make policy decisions and the Town Manager is responsible for carrying out and enforcing the policies of the Selectmen and for managing the day to day operations of the Town. An annual operating budget is approved by Town Meeting in April. This annual budget serves as the foundation for the Town’s financial planning and control. The budget is prepared by fund, function (e.g. general government), department (e.g. finance) and category (e.g. Personnel Services, Purchase of Ser- vices, Supplies, Other Charges & Expenses) allowing the department heads to allocate resources within the department. Transfers between categories need approval from Town Meeting unless specifically ex- empted by state statute. Factors Affecting Economic Condition Industry Tourism represents 37% of the Town’s private employment on the Island, and thus is an im- portant component of the Town’s economy. The management of Nantucket's tourism industry is aided by the Town’s Visitor Services department, which is supported through revenues from the local option Room Occupancy Tax collections. The Town received over $2.3 million from this source in fiscal 2013 and ap- proximately $2.6 million for fiscal 2014. The preservation of open space is an important component of the Town's tourism-based economy. It is estimated that approximately 40% of the Island is currently pre- served as open space or conservation land either by the Town, the Nantucket Islands Land Bank or vari- ous non-profit local entities. Property Taxes The growth of the Town’s main source of revenues, property taxes, is capped by Proposi- tion 2 ½ and can only be overridden through a ballot vote by the voters. While revenue increases have been limited in recent years, fixed costs, including health insurance and pension costs, have increased more proportionally. As a result, balancing the annual budget can be a challenge. Given its geographical location and the limitations of being an island, the Town does not have a large commercial and industrial property tax base so it relies heavily on residential property taxes. Approximately 88% of the Town’s property taxes are derived from residential taxes therefore new growth is essential to revenue growth and the ability to sustain the Town’s annual costs. The following table summarizes the Town’s new growth over the prior 5 calendar years: Table 1 Calendar # of Residential Non-Residential Total Year Permits Value Value Value 2013 1,384 155,601,701$ 18,099,456$ 173,701,157$ 2012 1,485 147,981,125 14,540,467 162,521,592 2011 1,339 113,150,665 7,627,649 120,778,314 2010 1,095 105,463,222 13,166,864 118,630,086 2009 877 88,742,997 67,313,372 156,056,369 Total 6,180 610,939,710$ 120,747,808$ 731,687,518$ Town of Nantucket, Massachusetts Page 6 of 124 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report Growth has been much stronger than expected with nearly 3/4 billion dollars added to the Town’s equal- ized valuation (market value) during this period. The Town’s strong equalized valuation is attractive to stakeholders in the Town’s securities as the Town currently ranks 4th in total equalized valuation in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. In addition, in measuring equalized valuation per capita, it is 1st in the Commonwealth by a significant margin with a factor of almost $1.7 million per resident. The Town’s strong growth as summarized in Table 1, has allowed the Town’s taxpayers the benefit of reduced property taxes through a large levy capacity. In fact the taxpayers benefited from a 3% to 4% saving in each of the last 3 fiscal years. This is summarized in Table 2 below: Table 2 Economic Development The Town’s downtown center remains a vibrant hub for small retail establish- ments, hospitality/resorts and restaurants. The Nantucket Island Chamber of Commerce, founded in 1937 and incorporated in 1954, has a diverse membership comprised of more than 650 businesses. The Town, including the Nantucket Planning and Economic Development Commission and Visitor Services depart- ment, has an on-going relationship with the Chamber involving the Town's economic issues. In 2008 at the annual town meeting, the town approved a study of an area known as the Wilkes Square Redevelopment site, which includes National Grid, Greenhound, Winthrop, and Nantucket Island Resort properties. To that end, the Board of Selectmen established a Downtown Revitalization Committee and charged it with identifying goals for the Nantucket downtown area that balance economic strength with community preservation, and encourage greater venues for social activity while recognizing the im- portance of planning. The focus of the study was to:  Attract a wide range of individuals through a multifunctional environment including: housing, work, shopping, culture, entertainment, government, and tourist attractions.  Balance the human, social, and economic needs with the infrastructure requirements of parking, public transportation, bike racks, road access, traffic flow, sidewalks, and water front walkways.  Attract commercial business to locate downtown by providing guidance on financing, zoning, and preliminary site design.  Protect the unique qualities, historical significance, and feel of the Town.  Incorporate attractive space for civic gatherings.

The site is currently owned by multiple land owners. The site’s close proximity to downtown and its waterfront location, present an extraordinary opportunity for the Town to develop its waterfront into a mixed-use gateway that will be a common ground for year- round residents as well as summertime residents and visitors. The vision for the site offers strategic opportunities to resolve or clarify long-standing infrastructure and transportation issues in Town, affords a strong vision for the program including a hotel, residential devel- opment, retail, dining and social venues. Town of Nantucket, Massachusetts Page 8 of 124 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report Unassigned Fund Balances One of the methods the Town uses to maintain reserves from year to year is to conservatively forecast revenues. This allows the Town to use free cash (surplus) for reserves, capital projects or other non-operating one-time expenses. Since the Town has a significant level of levy capacity as previously discussed, the challenge of conservatively forecasting revenue is diminished and as a result, the Town has been able to maintain and/or increase reserves from year to year. The following illustrates the Town’s unassigned fund balance trend since 2009: Long-term Financial Planning The Town prepares rolling ten-year operating budget projections. The Town believes this will (1) provide better insight when preparing annual budgets; (2) alert the Town to any potential budget issues far ahead of when these situations become real; and (3) allow the Town to determine when available financing for its capital needs can be provided or if a need for borrowing to finance projects is required. The following represents the Town’s ten-year revenue projections: The Town expects that annual budget sources as forecasted will be sufficient to fund annual appropria- tions.

In the past five years the Town has invested approximately $200 million in improving facilities and adding much needed infrastructure. The following were key capital initiatives:  Improvement to Nantucket Memorial Airport, much of which was funded from Federal grants, almost $55 million.  A new Public Safety building over $15.5 million.  Improvements to the municipal water infrastructure; almost $20 million.  Improvements to the Siasconset water infrastructure; almost $9 million.  Improvements to the municipal sewer infrastructure; over $60 million, some of this funded through the State subsidized, low interest loan program.  Improvements to Schools; almost $6 million.  Improvements to roads, sidewalks, curbs and catch basins; almost $10 million of which almost half was funded through the State Chapter 90 Program. Awards and Acknowledgements The Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) awards a Certifi- cate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting. This is a very prestigious award and in order to be awarded a Certificate of Achievement, a government must publish an easily readable and efficiently organized comprehensive annual financial report. This report must satisfy both generally accepted ac- counting principles and applicable legal requirements. A Certificate of Achievement is valid for a period of one year only. We believe that our current compre- hensive annual financial report will meet the Certificate of Achievement Program’s requirements, and we are submitting it to the GFOA to determine its eligibility for this certificate. The publication of this CAFR represents an important achievement in the ability of the Town of Nantuck- et to provide enhanced financial information and accountability to its citizens, elected and appointed offi- cials, and investors. The preparation of this report would not have been possible without the efficient and dedicated services of the entire staff in the Finance Office. Special thanks also go to the certified public accounting firm of Roselli, Clark and Associates for their advice and assistance in the preparation of this report. Respectfully submitted, C.

INDEPENDENT AUDITOR’S REPORT Honorable Board of Selectmen Town of Nantucket, Massachusetts Report on the Financial Statements We have audited the accompanying financial statements of the governmental activities, the business-type activities, the discretely presented component units, each major fund and the aggregate remaining fund information of the Town of Nantucket, Massachusetts, (the “Town”) as of and for the year ended June 30, 2014 which collectively comprise the Town’s basic financial statements as listed in the table of contents. We did not audit the financial statements of the Nantucket Islands Land Bank, a discretely presented component unit. Those financial statements were audited by other auditors whose report has been furnished to us, and our opinion, insofar as it relates to the amounts included for this discretely presented component unit, is based solely on the report of the other auditors. Management’s Responsibility for the Financial Statements Management is responsible for the preparation and fair presentation of these financial statements in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America; this includes the design, implementation, and maintenance of internal control relevant to the preparation and fair presentation of financial statements that are free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error. Auditor’s Responsibility Our responsibility is to express opinions on these financial statements based on our audit. 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 performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. The procedures selected depend on the auditor’s judgment, including the assessment of the risks of material misstatement of the financial statements, whether due to fraud or error. In making those risk assessments, the auditor considers internal control relevant to the entity’s preparation and fair presentation of the financial statements in order to design audit procedures that are appropriate in circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the entity’s internal control. Accordingly, we express no such opinion. An audit also includes evaluating the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonableness of significant accounting estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the financial statements. We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our audit opinions. Town of Nantucket, Massachusetts Page 13 of 124 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report Town of Nantucket Page Two Opinions In our opinion, the financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the respective financial position of the governmental activities, the business-type activities, the discretely presented component units, each major fund and the aggregate remaining fund information of the Town, as of June 30, 2014, and the respective changes in financial position and, where applicable, cash flows thereof for the year then ended in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. Change in Accounting Principle As described in Note III. Subsection H, the Town implemented Governmental Accounting Standards Board (GASB) Statement No. 65, Items Previously Reported as Assets and Liabilities. Our opinion was not modified with respect to this matter. Restatement of Prior Year Ending Balances As more fully described in Note IV, a restatement of prior year ending net position balances was made to Nantucket Islands Land Bank, a discretely presented component unit, the Town’s business-type activities and the Nantucket Memorial Airport Enterprise Fund. Other Matters Required Supplementary Information Accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America require that management’s discussion and analysis, the funding and contribution progress for pension benefits and other post- employment benefits information and budgetary comparison information as listed in the table of contents, be presented to supplement the basic financial statements. Such information, although not part of the basic financial statements, is required by the Governmental Accounting Standards Board, who considers it to be an essential part of financial reporting for placing the basic financial statements in an appropriate operational, economic or historical context. We have applied certain limited procedures to the required supplementary information in accordance with auditing standards generally accepted in the United States of America, which consisted of inquiries of management about the methods of preparing the information and comparing the information for consistency with management’s responses to our inquiries, the basic financial statements, and other knowledge we obtained during our audit of the basic financial statements. We do not express an opinion or provide any assurance on the information because the limited procedures do not provide us with sufficient evidence to express an opinion or provide any assurance. Other Information Our audit was conducted for the purpose of forming opinions on the financial statements that collectively comprise the Town’s basic financial statements. The introductory section, combining statements, and statistical section are presented for purposes of additional analysis and are not a required part of the basic financial statements. The combining statements are the responsibility of management and were derived from and relate directly to the underlying accounting and other records used to prepare the basic financial Town of Nantucket, Massachusetts Page 14 of 124 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report Town of Nantucket Page Three statements. Such information has been subjected to the auditing procedures applied in the audit of the basic financial statements and certain additional procedures, including comparing and reconciling such information directly to the underlying accounting and other records used to prepare the basic financial statements or to the basic financial statements themselves, and other additional procedures in accordance with auditing standards generally accepted in the United States of America. In our opinion, the combining statements are fairly stated, in all material respects, in relation to the basic financial statements as a whole. The introductory and statistical sections have not been subjected to the auditing procedures applied in the audit of the basic financial statements and, accordingly, we do not express an opinion or provide any assurance on them. Other Reporting Required By Government Auditing Standards In accordance with Government Auditing Standards, we have also issued a report dated December 20, 2014, 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 considered in assessing the results of our audit.

Town of Nantucket, Massachusetts Page 18 of 124 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS As the management of the Town, we offer readers of the accompanying financial statements this narrative overview and analysis of the financial activities of the Town and its component units for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2014. Financial Highlights  The assets and deferred inflows of the Town exceeded its liabilities and deferred outflows at the close of the most recent fiscal year by approximately $326.2 million (total net position).  The government’s total net position increased by approximately $4.9 million (1.5% of total net position) over the prior year. This consisted of increases in both governmental activities’ net position by approximately $ 4.4 million (2.2% of total governmental activities’ net position) and in business - type activities’ net position of approximately $0.6 million (0.5% of business-type activities’ net position).  The Town’s Unassigned Fund Balance reported in the General Fund was approximately $14.7 million (21.5% of General Fund expenditures). Total Fund Balance in the General Fund was approximately $25.5 million (37.2% of General Fund expenditures). The Town reported a Restricted Fund Balance of $0.3 million in its Town Capital Projects Fund and reported Total Fund Balances of approximately $18.5 million in the Combined Nonmajor Governmental Funds.  The Town’s total debt decreased by over $7.0 million during the fiscal year. Detail of this net decrease is illustrated as follows: Overview of the Financial Statements This discussion and analysis are intended to serve as an introduction to the Town’s basic financial statements. The Town’s basic financial statements comprise three components: 1) government-wide financial statements, 2) fund financial statements, 3) notes to the financial statements. This report also contains other supplementary information in addition to the basic financial statements themselves. Regular scheduled maturities: Governmental Activities (5,405,946)$ Business-Type Activities (5,224,019) Amortization of bond premium: Governmental Activities (22,543) Business-Type Activities (132,697) Issuance of debt Governmental Activities - Business-Type Activities 3,761,000 (7,024,205)$ Town of Nantucket, Massachusetts Page 19 of 124 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report The layout and relationship of the financial statements and supplementary information is visually illustrated as follows: Government-wide Financial Statements – The government-wide financial statements are designed to provide readers with a broad overview of the Town’s finances, in a manner similar to a private-sector business. The statement of position presents information on all of the Town’s assets, deferred outflows of resources, liabilities and deferred inflows of resources, with the difference between these reported as net position. Over time, increases or decreases in net position may serve as a useful indicator of whether the financial position of the Town is improving or deteriorating. The statement of activities presents information showing how the government’s net position changed during the most recent fiscal year. All changes in net position 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 vacation leave.) The government-wide financial statements consist of three classifications; (1) those whose activities are principally supported by taxes and intergovernmental revenue (governmental activities); (2) those whose activities are intended to recover all or a significant portion of their costs through user fees and charges (business-type activities), and (3) component units. Town of Nantucket, Massachusetts Page 20 of 124 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report The Town’s governmental activities consist of: 1. General government; 2. Public safety; 3. Education; 4. Public works; 5. Health and human services; 6. Culture and recreation; and, 7. Interest expense. The Town’s business-type activities consist of: 1. Siasconset Water District; 2. Wannacomet Water District; 3. Sewer; 4. Nantucket Memorial Airport; 5. Our Island Home; and 6. Solid waste. The Town’s component units consist of: 1. Nantucket County; and 2. Nantucket Islands Land Bank. 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. The Town, like other state and local governments, uses fund accounting to ensure and demonstrate compliance with finance-related legal requirements. All of the funds of the Town can be divided into three categories: governmental funds, proprietary funds, and fiduciary funds. Accounting guidelines distinguish fund balance between amounts that are considered nonspendable, such as fund balance associated with inventories, and other amounts that are classified based on the relative strength of the constraints that control the purposes for which specific amounts can be spent. Beginning with the most binding constraints, fund balance amounts will be reported in the following classifications: • Restricted—amounts constrained by external parties, constitutional provision, or enabling legislation • Committed—amounts constrained by a government using its highest level of decision-making authority • Assigned—amounts a government intends to use for a particular purpose • Unassigned—amounts that are not constrained at all will be reported in the general fund or in other major funds if negative 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 financial statements focus on near-term inflows and outflows of spendable resources, as well as on balances of spendable resources available at Town of Nantucket, Massachusetts Page 21 of 124 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report 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. The Town maintains numerous individual governmental funds. Information is presented separately in the governmental fund balance sheet and in the governmental fund statement of revenues, expenditures, and changes in fund balances for the General Fund, and Town Capital Projects Fund which are considered to be major funds. Data from the other governmental funds are combined into a single, aggregated presentation. Individual fund data for each of these Nonmajor governmental funds is provided in the form of combining statements. The Town adopts an annual appropriated budget for its general fund and its enterprise funds. A budgetary comparison schedule has been provided for the general fund 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 an enterprise fund to account for all the business-type activities previously discussed. Internal service funds are used to report activities that service all other Town Departments. The Town uses an internal service fund to account for self-insured health insurance claims. 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 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. Other Information - In addition to the basic financial statements and accompanying notes, this report also presents certain required supplementary information concerning the Town’s progress in funding its obligation to provide pension benefits and other post-employment benefits to its employees as well as the Schedule of Revenues, Expenditures and Changes in Fund Balances – Budget and Actual – General Fund. Government-wide Financial Analysis As noted earlier, net position may serve over time as a useful indicator of a government’s financial position. In the case of the Town, assets and deferred outflows of resources exceeded liabilities and deferred inflows of resources by approximately $326.2 million at the close of the most recent fiscal year. Town of Nantucket, Massachusetts Page 22 of 124 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report The condensed Statement of Net Position is as follows: By far, the largest portion (approximately $288.2 million) of the Town’s net position reflects its investment in capital assets (e.g. land, buildings, infrastructure, machinery, and equipment) less any related debt used to acquire those assets that is still outstanding. The Town uses these capital assets to provide services to citizens; consequently, these assets are not available for future spending. Although the Town’s investment in its 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, approximately $20.5 million, of the Town’s net position represents resources that are subject to external restrictions on how they may be used. The final portion, approximately $17.4 million is unrestricted and may be used to meet the Town’s current obligations and commitments.

This was a result of aggressive policies to conserve expenses and forecast revenues conservatively. This was netted due to increasing the provisions to the Town’s long-term liabilities and other factors. A detailed list of causes to this net increase in governmental activities is as follows: Net position of the business-type activities increased by approximately $0.6 million (less than 1.0% of business-type activities’ net position) from the prior year balances. Change in net position for each business-type fund is broken down individually as follows: The Nantucket Memorial Airport posted a loss over $1.0 million however this included one- time maintenance charges of approximately $0.7 million paid from restricted funds and a non-cash write-off of construction in process in the amount of $0.4 million for projects that did not evolve past the feasibility stage. All other business – type funds results were consistent with expectations.

Although the percentage of overall revenue was equal, the property tax amount increased in accordance with proposition 2 1/2, which caps property tax increases at 2 1/2% of the prior year levy plus new growth.

Education costs represented the area of largest disbursement for the Town as approximately 48.5% of total disbursements related to education down from 50.2% in the prior year. Actual costs increased despite the ratio decreasing. The increase, representing approximately $1.6 million was primarily due to an increase in health insurance benefits, post- employment benefits, salaries and general inflation. The Town is required under State law to fund a net school spending calculation. The Town funds well in excess of the minimum requirements. Public Safety expenses represented 19.5% of total expenses, down slightly from 20.0% in the prior year as operations were consistent from year to year. General Government expenses represented approximately 13.3% of total expenses down slightly from 13.9% in the previous year as these operations were also consistent from year to year. No other expenses represented greater than 10.0% of total expenses in either fiscal 2014 or 2013 however Culture and Recreation costs were $3.3 million greater year over year due to expenses associated with the preservation of historical assets funded from the Town’s Community Preservation Fund. Fund-wide 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 the Town’s governmental funds is to provide information on near- term inflows, outflows, and balances of spendable resources. Such information is useful in assessing the Town’s financing requirements. In particular, unrestricted 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 close of the current fiscal year, the Town’s governmental funds balance sheet reported a combined ending fund balance of approximately $44.3 million, an increase of approximately $4.3 million over the prior year. 13% 20% 49% 6% 2%7%3% Expenses General government Public safety Education Public works Health and human services Culture and recreation Interest expense Town of Nantucket, Massachusetts Page 27 of 124 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report Decreases of $0.9 million in the Town Capital Projects Fund were offset by increases in the General Fund of $2.7 due to favorable operating results and increases in the aggregate Nonmajor Funds of $2.4 million were primarily due to proceeds received from the sale of a large parcel of real estate. Unassigned fund balance in the general fund was approximately $14.7 million or 21.5% of general fund expenditures. This is available for spending at the government’s discretion. Assigned fund balance of $2.0 million; committed fund balance of approximately $8.1 million and restricted fund balance of $0.7 million bring total general fund balance to $25.5 million or 37.2% of general fund expenditures. The remainder of governmental fund balances are included as Combined Nonmajor Fund Balances and are classified as either (1) non-spendable, due to being the corpus of an endowment in the amount of $114,762; or (2) restricted due to constraints placed externally by third-parties in the amount of approximately $18.4 million. Proprietary funds – The Town’s proprietary funds are made up of the same type of information found in the government-wide financial statements under business-type activities, but in more detail; and (2) the Town’s Internal Service Fund which accounts for the Town’s Health Claims Fund. The Health Claims Fund has a Net Asset balance of approximately $1.0 million. This represents an increase of approximately $0.8 million over the prior year. A positive amount from contributions combined with lower claim activity contributed to operating revenues exceeding operating expenses. Fiduciary Fund – The Town’s fiduciary fund is comprised primarily of the Town’s Private Purpose Trust Funds whose net assets are approximately $2.4 million. These assets are used strictly for purposes outside of the public domain such as scholarships and public assistance and decreased by about $347,000 over the prior year due to increased scholarships awarded and other public assistance. In addition, the Town has elected to establish a trust under Chapter 32B Section 20 of the MGL whose sole purpose will be to accumulate funds to reduce the Town’s unfunded Postemployment Benefits. In 2013 the Town elected to transfer seed money of $250,000 to establish the first contribution to the fund. No contributions were made during 2014. 5 7 9 11 13 15 Revenues Expenses Health Claims Fund Town of Nantucket, Massachusetts Page 28 of 124 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report General Fund Budgetary Highlights Differences between the original budget and the final amended were for the most part not significant (less than 1%). Further detail of budget to actual comparisons may be reviewed as part of the Required Supplementary Information following the footnotes to the report. Capital Asset and Debt Administration Capital Assets – The Town’s investment in capital assets for its governmental and business type activities as of June 30, 2014 amounts to approximately $433.7 million (net of accumulated depreciation) an increase from the previous year’s balance of approximately $2.7 million. This investment in capital assets includes land, buildings and improvements, infrastructure, machinery, equipment, and software. The total increase is due to capital investments exceeding depreciation for the year. Additional information on the Town’s capital assets can be found in Note II subsection D. Long-term Debt – At the end of the current fiscal year, the Town had total debt outstanding of approximately $137.2 million. The entire amount comprises debt backed by the full faith and credit of the government. The Town’s total debt decreased by approximately $7.0 million during the fiscal year due to: The Town’s most recent credit evaluation resulted in an “Aa2” rating from Moody’s Investment Services for general obligation debt. State statutes limit the amount of general obligation debt a governmental entity may issue to 5.0 % of its total assessed valuation. The current debt limitation for the Town is approximately $855 million, which is significantly in excess of the Town’s outstanding general obligation debt classified as inside the debt limit. Bond anticipation note payable balances outstanding at year-end amount to approximately $9.0 million. $6.0 million of this amount relates to sewer projects; $1.3 million to water projects; $1.0 million to Airport activities; $1.1 million to Community Preservation and $0.5 million to the Septic Loan Program. Additional information on the Town’s short-term and long-term debt can be found in Note II under subsections F and G.

While this trend is expected to continue, the extent, timing or certainty of any full economic rebound cannot be reasonably estimated at this time.  The Town’s real estate tax base is made up predominantly of residential taxes, which comprise nearly 87.8% of the Town’s real estate tax base. The Town also relies heavily on its commercial and industrial real estate tax base, which in aggregate comprise 10.2 % of the Town’s real estate tax base. In addition, Chapter 580 of the Acts of 1980, more commonly referred to as Proposition 2 ½, limits the Town’s ability to increase taxes in any one year by more than two and one-half percent (2 ½%) of the previous year tax levy plus new growth.  The Town’s housing market continues to be vibrant and consistently outpaces the state and national indexes. Average home prices approximate $1.5 million and the average residential tax rate is 3.67 per $1,000.  The Town has responded well to the recent economic challenges. Reductions in local revenue, primarily interest income and other reductions in revenue have caused the Town to aggressively seek other revenue producing initiatives in order to maintain appropriations in ways that preserved local service levels.  All of the above items were considered when the Town developed its budget for fiscal year 2015. The budget was adopted in April 2014 and the Town expects its tax rate to be certified in December 2014.

Town of Nantucket, Massachusetts Page 43 of 124 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report TOWN OF NANTUCKET, MASSACHUSETTS NOTES TO BASIC FINANCIAL STATEMENTS YEAR ENDED JUNE 30, 2014 I. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies The accompanying basic financial statements of the Town have been prepared in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) as applied to state and local governments. GAAP is prescribed by the Governmental Accounting Standards Board (GASB), which is the primary standard-setting body for state and local government entities. The following is a summary of the more significant policies and practices used by the Town: A. Reporting Entity The Town is located in Nantucket County, twenty-five miles south of Cape Cod and was incorporated as a Town in 1671. An elected five member Board of Selectmen (“Selectmen”) governs the Town and an appointed Town Manager oversees the Town’s daily executive and administrative duties. The Town provides governmental services for the territory within its boundaries, including police and fire protection, public education in grades K-12, water and sewer services, solid waste disposal, street maintenance, elderly housing, parks and recreational facilities and an airport. Discretely Presented Component Units – The Town includes two entities as component units in the Town's reporting entity because of the significance of their operations or financial relationships with the Town are such that exclusion would cause the basic financial statements to be misleading. Unless otherwise indicated, the notes to the basic financial statements pertain only to the primary government. A description of the discretely presented component units and their relationships with the Town follows: Nantucket County – The County of Nantucket (“the County”) is presented in a separate column to emphasize that it is legally separate from the Town but included because the Town is financially accountable for, and can impose its will on, the organization. The County shares the same geographical boundaries as the Town, and the Town’s Selectmen serve ex-officio as the County Commissioners. The County operates a Registry of Deeds and a Corrections Office. The County issued complete stand-alone financial statements at June 30, 2014 which may be obtained by contacting the County of Nantucket, 16 Broad Street Nantucket, Massachusetts 02554 Nantucket Islands Land Bank – The Nantucket Islands Land Bank (“the Land Bank”) was created by Chapter 669 of the Acts of 1983 of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts to acquire and manage open space and protect natural resources in Nantucket County. The Land Bank is administered by the Nantucket Islands Land Bank Commission, which is comprised of five elected members. It is legally separate from the Town but presented as a discrete component unit as the Land Bank’s bonds payable are guaranteed by the full faith and credit of the Town. The Land Bank issued complete stand-alone financial statements at June 30, 2014 which may be obtained by contacting Nantucket Islands Land Bank, 22 Broad Street, Nantucket, Massachusetts 02554. Availability of Financial Information of Certain Town Enterprise Funds – The Nantucket Memorial Airport issues separate stand-alone financial statements which may be obtained by contacting them at 14 Airport Road, Nantucket, MA 02554. Town of Nantucket, Massachusetts Page 44 of 124 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report B. Government-Wide and Fund Financial Statements The government-wide financial statements (i.e., the statement of net position and the statement of activities) report information on all of the non-fiduciary activities of the primary government and its component units. For the most part, the effect of interfund activity has been removed from these statements. Governmental activities, which normally are supported by taxes and intergovernmental revenues, are reported separately from business-type activities, which rely to a significant extent on fees and charges for support. Likewise the primary government is reported separately from the legally separate component units for which the primary government is financially accountable. Separate financial statements are provided for governmental funds, proprietary funds and fiduciary funds, even though the fiduciary funds are excluded from the government-wide financial statements. Major individual government funds and major individual enterprise funds are reported as separate columns in the fund financial statements. Nonmajor funds are aggregated and presented in a single column. Major Fund Criteria – Major funds must be reported if both of the following criteria are met: 1) The total assets and deferred outflow of resources, liabilities and deferred inflow of resources, revenues, or expenditures/expenses of an individual governmental or enterprise fund are at least ten percent of the corresponding total for all funds of that category or type, and 2) The total assets and deferred outflows of resources, liabilities and deferred inflow of resources, revenues, or expenditures/expenses of the individual governmental fund or enterprise fund are at least five 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. C. Measurement Focus, Basis of Accounting, and Financial Statement Presentation 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 a liability is incurred, regardless of the timing of related cash flows. 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 are met. The statement of activities demonstrates the degree to which the direct expenses of a given function or segment is offset by program revenues. Direct expenses are those that are clearly identifiable with a specific function or segment. Program revenues include: 1) charges to customers or applicants who purchase, use, or directly benefit from goods, services, or privileges provided by a given function or segment and 2) grants and contributions that are restricted to meeting the operational or capital requirements of a particular function or segment. Taxes and other items not properly included among program revenues are reported instead as general revenues. For the most part, the effect of interfund activity has been removed from the government-wide financial statements. Town of Nantucket, Massachusetts Page 45 of 124 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report The governmental fund financial statements are reported using the current financial resources measurement focus and the modified accrual basis of accounting. Revenues are recognized when susceptible to accrual (i.e. measurable and available). Revenues are considered to be available when they are 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, certain compensated absences, claims and judgments which are recognized when the obligations are expected to be liquidated with current expendable available resources. The Town applies the susceptible to accrual criteria to intergovernmental revenues. In applying the susceptible to accrual concept, there are two types of revenues. In one, moneys must be expended for a specific purpose or project before any amounts will be paid to the; therefore, revenues are recognized as expenditures are incurred. In the other, moneys are virtually unrestricted and are usually revocable only for failure to comply with prescribed requirements. These resources are reflected as revenues when cash is received, or earlier if the susceptible to accrual criteria are met. State aid is accrued as revenue in the year that the funds are appropriated by the Commonwealth. The Town considers property tax revenues to be available if they are collected within 60 days after the end of the fiscal year and are material. Investment income associated with the current fiscal period is susceptible to accrual and has been recognized as revenue of the current fiscal period. All other revenue items are considered to be measurable and available only when the cash is received and are recognized as revenue at that time. The government reports the following major Governmental Funds: General Fund – is the government’s primary operating fund. It accounts for all financial resources of the general government except those required to be accounted for in another fund. Town Capital Projects Fund – is used to account for all financial resources that are restricted, committed or assigned for the acquisition or construction of capital facilities and other capital assets of the governmental funds. Nonmajor Governmental Funds – consist of other special revenue 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 Funds are used to account for the proceeds of specific revenue sources that are restricted or committed to expenditures for specified purposes other than debt service or capital projects. The Permanent Funds are used to account for financial resources that are restricted to the extent that only earnings, not principal, may be used for purposes that support the governmental programs. The proprietary fund financial statements are reported using the economic resources measurement focus and the accrual basis of accounting. Under this method, revenues are recognized when earned and expenses are recorded when the liabilities are incurred. Town of Nantucket, Massachusetts Page 46 of 124 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report Proprietary funds distinguish operating revenues and expenses from non-operating items. Operating revenues and expenses generally result from providing services and producing and delivering goods in connection with a proprietary fund’s principal ongoing operations. The principal operating revenues are user charges and fees, while operating expenses consist of salaries, ordinary maintenance, assessments and depreciation. All revenues and expenses not meeting this definition are reported as non-operating revenues and expenses. The government reports the following major proprietary funds: Siasconset Water Enterprise Fund – is used to account for the operations of the Town’s water activities in the Siasconset service area of the Town. Wannacomet Water Enterprise Fund – is used to account for the operations of the Town’s water activities in the remaining service areas of the Town. Sewer Enterprise Fund – is used to account for the operations of the Town’s sewer activities. Nantucket Memorial Airport Enterprise Fund – is used to account for the operations of the Town’s airport. Our Island Home Enterprise Fund – is used to account for the operations of Town’s nursing home activities. Solid Waste Enterprise Fund – is used to account for the operations of the Town’s solid waste activities. Additionally, the following proprietary fund type is reported: Internal Service Fund – is used to account for the Town’s self-insured health insurance and workers’ compensation activities. Because these services primarily benefit governmental rather than business-type activities, they have been included within governmental activities in the government-wide financial statements. Fiduciary fund financial statements are reported using the economic resources measurement focus and use the accrual basis of accounting. Fiduciary funds are used to account for assets held in a trustee capacity and cannot be used to support the governmental programs. The government reports the following fiduciary funds: Other Postemployment Benefits Trust Fund – is used to accumulate funds for future payments of other postemployment benefits for retirees, such as health and life insurance. Private Purpose Trust Fund – is used to account for trust arrangements under which the principal and income benefit individuals, private organizations or other governments. This fund is used for scholarships and affordable housing programs. Agency Fund – is used to account for assets held in a purely custodial capacity. The Town’s agency funds consist primarily of student activities, off-duty work details, escrow and other deposits. Town of Nantucket, Massachusetts Page 47 of 124 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report When both restricted and unrestricted resources are available for use, it is the Town’s policy to use restricted resources first, then unrestricted resources, as they are needed. D. Assets, Liabilities, Deferred Outflows/Inflows of Resources, and Net Position/Fund Equity Deposits and Investments – The Town’s cash and cash equivalents are considered to be cash on hand, demand deposits, and short-term investments with original maturities of three months or less from the date of acquisition. Investments for the Town and its component units are reported at fair value. Receivables – Real estate and personal property taxes are assessed on January 1 every year. Bills are sent quarterly and are due on August 1, November 1, February 1, and May 1, or thirty days subsequent to the mailing date. Interest accrues on delinquent taxes at the rate of 14% per annum. Property taxes levied are recorded as receivables in the fiscal year of the levy. The Town is allowed to take delinquent taxes into tax title fourteen days subsequent to the mailing of a demand for payment of the delinquent taxes. User charges receivables represent amounts billed for water, sewer, monthly landfill tipping fees, annual commercial landfill user fees, airport travel and fuel sales and nursing home fees. Water and sewer charges are billed monthly and are subject to penalties and interest if not paid by the respective due date. The Town is authorized to take water and sewer fees into tax title fourteen days subsequent to the mailing of a demand for payment of the delinquent taxes. Real estate taxes, water user fees and sewer user fees that are secured through a lien process are considered 100% collectible. Accordingly, an allowance for uncollectible balances for these receivables is not reported. All personal property tax and excise tax receivables are shown net of an allowance for uncollectible balances comprised of those outstanding amounts greater than five years old. Departmental, landfill, airport and nursing home receivables are shown net of an allowance for uncollectible balances based on historical trends and specific account analysis. Sewer privilege fees represent betterments assessed to property owners related to upgrades to the Surfside Wastewater Treatment Plant. These are considered 100% collectible since they are secured through a lien on the owner’s property. Inventories and Prepaid Items – Inventories of the Wannacomet Water Enterprise Fund and Nantucket Memorial Airport Enterprise Fund are valued at the lower of cost or market, with cost determined on a first-in, first out basis. Certain supplies and small tools are expensed when purchased. All other inventories, which are not material to the basic financial statements, are considered to be expenditures at the time of purchase. Restricted Assets – Certain assets of the component units are classified as restricted because their use is restricted by contract covenants. Capital Assets – Capital assets, which include land, land improvements, buildings and improvements, machinery and equipment, vehicles and infrastructure (e.g. roads, water and sewer mains, and similar items), are reported in the applicable governmental or business-type activities columns in the government-wide financial statements. Capital assets are recorded at historical cost or estimated historical cost if purchased or constructed. Donated capital assets are recorded Town of Nantucket, Massachusetts Page 48 of 124 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report at the estimated fair market value at the date of donation. Interest incurred during the construction phase of capital assets of business-type activities is included as part of the capitalized value of the assets constructed. All purchases and construction costs in excess of $10,000 are capitalized at the date of acquisition or construction, respectively, with expected lives of greater than one year. The costs of normal maintenance and repairs that do not add to the value of the asset or materially extend assets lives are not capitalized. Capital assets (excluding land and construction-in-process) are depreciated on a straight-line- basis. The estimated useful lives of capital assets being depreciated are as follows: Buildings and improvements 33-50 years Machinery and equipment 5-7 years Vehicles 5-10 years Infrastructure 40-70 years Interfund Balances – Activity between funds that are representative of lending arrangements outstanding at the end of the fiscal year are referred to as either due to/from other funds or advances to/from other funds. All other outstanding balances between funds are reported as due to/from other funds. Any residual balances outstanding between the governmental activities and business-type activities are reported in the government-wide financial statements as internal balances. Interfund Transfers – During the course of its operations, resources are permanently reallocated between and within funds. These transactions are reported as transfers in and transfers out in the individual fund statements. Transfers between and within governmental and fiduciary funds are eliminated from the governmental activities in the statement of activities. Any residual balances outstanding between the governmental activities and the business –type activities are reported in the statement of activities as transfers, net. Investment Income – Excluding the permanent funds, investment income derived from major and nonmajor governmental funds is legally assigned to the general fund unless otherwise directed by state law. Investment income of the proprietary funds is assigned to the fund within which it applies. Compensated Absences – It is the Town’s policy to permit employees to accumulate earned but unused sick pay benefits. Vacation time may be carried for a period of 6 months subsequent to year-end and if not used during this period is lost. Compensated absence liabilities related to both governmental and business-type activities are normally paid from the funds reporting payroll and related expenditures. Amounts related to these benefits are accrued when incurred in the government-wide and proprietary fund financial statements. A liability for these amounts is reported in Governmental Funds only if they have matured. Long-term Obligations – Long-term debt is reported as a liability in the government-wide and proprietary fund statement of net position. Bond premiums and discounts are deferred and amortized over the life of the bonds using the effective interest method. Bond anticipation notes payable are reported net of the applicable bond premium or discount. Town of Nantucket, Massachusetts Page 49 of 124 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report In the governmental fund financial statements, the face amount of long-term debt issued is reported as other financing sources. Premiums received on a debt issuance are reported as other financing sources while discounts are reported as other financing uses. Issuance costs are exclusively reported as general government expenditures regardless of whether they are withheld from the actual proceeds. Deferred Outflows/Inflows of Resources – In addition to assets, the statement of financial position will sometimes report a separate section for deferred outflows of resources. This separate financial statement element, deferred outflows of resources, represents a consumption of net position that applies to a future period(s) and so will not be recognized as an outflow of resources (expense/expenditure) until then. In addition to liabilities, the statement of financial position will sometimes report a separate section for deferred inflows of resources. This separate financial statement element, deferred inflows of resources, represents an acquisition of net position that applies to a future period(s) and thus will not be recognized as an inflow of resources (revenue) until that time. Net Position – In the government-wide financial statements, net position reported as “Net investment in capital assets” includes capital assets, net of accumulated depreciation, less the principal balance of outstanding debt used to acquire capital assets. Unspent proceeds of capital related debt are not considered to be capital related debt. Net position is reported as restricted when amounts are not available for appropriation or are legally restricted by outside parties for a specific use. Net position has been restricted for the following: Nonexpendable permanent funds represent the endowment portion of donor restricted trusts that support governmental programs. Federal and State grants represent assets that have restrictions placed on them from federal and state granting agencies. Community preservation represents assets that are restricted by state law for the purposes of acquiring or developing open space and recreational facilities, historic resources and affordable housing. Sale of real estate – represents assets that have accumulated from the proceeds of the sale of Town owned property. These are restricted by state law for the purposes of funding capital projects. Revolving funds – represent assets that have accumulated from user charges assessed to support specific programs. These amounts are restricted by state law for the purpose of funding those programs for which the user charges were assessed. Other purposes represent assets that are restricted by donors for numerous various minor specific governmental programs and uses. Fund Equity – In the fund financial statements, fund balance for governmental funds is reported in classifications that comprise a hierarchy based primarily on the extent in which the Town is required to honor constraints on the specific purpose for which amounts in the funds can be spent. Town of Nantucket, Massachusetts Page 50 of 124 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report Fund balance is reported in five components – non-spendable, restricted, committed, assigned, and unassigned as described below: Non-spendable represents amounts that cannot be spent because they are either (a) not in spendable form (i.e. inventory or prepaid) or (b) legally or contractually required to be maintained intact such as the corpus of an endowment. Restricted represents amounts that have constraints placed either externally by third-parties (creditors, grantors, contributors, or laws or regulations of other governments) or by law through constitutional provisions or enabling legislation. Enabling legislation authorizes the Town to assess, levy, charge or otherwise mandate payment of resources (from external resource providers) and includes a legally enforceable requirement (compelled by external parties) that those resources be used only for the specific purposes stipulated in the legislation. Committed represents amounts that can only be used for specific purposes pursuant to formal action of the Town Meeting through Town Meeting Articles, which represent the most binding constraint that give rise to committed fund balance. Those committed amounts cannot be used for any other purpose unless the Town Meeting removes or changes the specified use by taking the same type of action (through Town Meeting Articles) it employed previously to commit those amounts. Assigned represents amounts that are constrained by the Town’s intent to be used for specific purposes, but are neither restricted nor committed. The Town has by ordinance authorized the Director of Municipal Finance to assign fund balance. The Town Meeting may also assign fund balance as it does when appropriating fund balance to cover a gap between estimated revenue and appropriations in the subsequent year’s appropriated budget. Unassigned represents amounts that have not been restricted, committed or assigned to specific purposes within the general fund. The general fund is the only fund that reports a positive unassigned fund balance amount. Other governmental funds besides the general fund can only report a negative unassigned fund balance amount. When both restricted and unrestricted resources are available for use, it is the Town’s policy to use restricted resources first, then unrestricted resources (committed, assigned and unassigned) as they are needed. When unrestricted resources (committed, assigned and unassigned) are available for use it is the Town’s policy to use committed resources first, then assigned, and then unassigned as they are needed. The Town has not established financial policies with respect to maintaining minimum fund balance amounts. Stabilization Fund – The Town maintains a general stabilization fund which may be used for any municipal purpose upon a two-thirds vote of the Town Meeting. The balance of the fund totals $4,776,308 at June 30, 2014 and is reported as unassigned fund balance in the General Fund. Encumbrances – The Town’s encumbrance policy regarding the general fund is to (1) classify encumbrances that arise from the issuance of purchase orders resulting from normal purchasing activity approved by the Director of Finance as assigned, and (2) classify encumbrances that result from an action of the Town Meeting as committed. Encumbrances of funds already restricted, or committed are included within the classification of those fund balances and not Town of Nantucket, Massachusetts Page 51 of 124 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report reported separately. The Town reports $2,047,757 of encumbrances from normal purchasing activity in the general fund as assigned. There are no, encumbrances reported in any other fund. The following table reflects the Town’s fund equity categorizations: E. Excess of Expenditures Over Appropriations During the fiscal year ended, the Town overspent its appropriation for unemployment benefits by $231,322. This will be raised through future tax assessments when the Town sets its tax rate for fiscal year 2015. The Town did not did not exceed appropriations for any of its other legally adopted line item appropriations in the budget. In addition, the Town did not experience deficits in any of its other funds. F. Use of Estimates 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.

Detailed Notes to All Funds A. Deposits 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 trust funds are held separately from those of other funds. State laws and regulations require the Town to invest funds only in pre-approved investment instruments which include but are not necessarily limited to bank deposits, money markets, certificates of deposit, U.S. obligations, repurchase agreements, and State Treasurer’s investment pool (the Pool). In addition, the statutes impose various limitations on the amount and length of investments and deposits. Repurchase agreements cannot be for a period of over ninety days, and the underlying security must be a United States obligation. The Pool meets the criteria of an external investment pool. The Pool is administered by the Massachusetts Municipal Depository Trust (the 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. Primary Government (Town) Custodial Credit Risk: Deposits - In the case of deposits, this is the risk that in the event of a bank failure, the government’s deposits may not be returned to it. The Town has adopted a deposit policy which requires that the Treasurer review each bank doing business with the Town on a quarterly basis. The policy does not restrict the value of uninsured or uncollateralized investments held at any time. At year-end, the carrying amount of the Town's deposits was $67,907,555 and the bank balance was $70,057,652. Of the Town's bank balance, $19,154,334 was covered by federal depository insurance or the Depositors Insurance Fund (“DIF”), and $50,789,819 was fully collateralized. Custodial Credit Risk: Investments – In the case of investments, this is the risk that in the event of the invested party not being able to provide required payments to investors, ceasing to exist, or filing of bankruptcy, the Town may not be able to recover the full amount of its principal investment and/or investment earnings. The Town has adopted an investment policy regarding custodial credit risk that requires all securities not held directly by the Treasurer must be held by a third party custodian approved by the Treasurer in the Town’s name and tax identification number. The Town’s investments of $4,293,301 in U.S. government obligations and $348,500 in corporate debt securities are held by a broker-dealer where the Town’s assets are segregated from the broker-dealer firm assets and are protected up to $500,000 under coverage through the Securities Investor Protection Corporation (“SIPC”). Additionally, the broker-dealer carries excess insurance to cover claims over the SIPC limit through Lloyd’s with a firm cap of $1 billion with no individual client limit. The repurchase agreements consist of overnight sweep agreements which are invested in U.S. Treasury notes. Interest Rate Risk – The Town limits investment maturities as a means of managing its exposure to fair value losses arising from increasing interest rates. The policy limits investments of operating funds to one year or less and limits investment maturities of trust funds and other Town of Nantucket, Massachusetts Page 53 of 124 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report special funds to periods no longer that seven years, maintaining an average maturity no greater than three years for the investment portfolio. Credit Risk – The Town restricts the investment of operating funds to U.S. Treasury or Agency securities which carry “AAA” ratings. Trust and other special funds which are longer-term investments may invest in fixed-income securities which are held principally for capital preservation and income potential and corporate debt that carries a rating of “A” or better by either Standard and Poor’s or Moody’s rating services. If a security falls below the “A” rating, the security will be monitored by the Treasurer and advisor and will be noted as an exception to the policy if held in the investment portfolio. The Treasurer will sell the securities if a decline in value is expected. Concentration of Credit Risk – The Town does not place a limit on the amount that may be invested in any one issuer. The Town has 35% of its investments in United States government backed securities and 13% in MMDT.

Temporary Debt The Town is authorized to borrow on a temporary basis to fund the following: Current Operating Costs – Prior to collection of revenues, expenditures may be financed through the issuance of revenue or tax anticipation notes (RANS or TANS). Capital Projects and Other Approved Costs – Projects may be temporarily funded through the issuance of bond anticipation notes (BANS) or grant anticipation notes (GANS). In certain cases, prior to the issuance of these temporary notes, the governing body must take the necessary legal steps to authorize the issuance of the general obligation bonds. Temporary notes may not exceed the aggregate amount of bonds authorized or the grant award amount and carry maturity dates that are limited by state law. Interest expenditures and expenses for temporary borrowings are accounted for in the general fund and enterprise funds, respectively. Temporary notes outstanding at June 30, 2014, are payable as follows: Short-term (BANs) issued for nonmajor governmental funds were used for septic betterments ($521,551), and recreational fields ($1,100,000). Those issued for business-type funds were issued for water projects ($1,300,000), sewer projects ($5,999,200) and airport projects ($1,001,000). In addition, the Town has entered into a $1,000,000 no-interest loan agreement with the MWPAT, with proceeds used to fund the Town’s septic management program. A portion of the loan was permanently financed during the fiscal year ($478,449), while the remainder ($521,551) will be recorded as short-term debt until permanently financed. F.

Other Information A. Retirement System Plan Description - The Town and the Nantucket County discretely presented component unit contribute to the Barnstable County Retirement System (BCRS), a multiple-employer defined benefit pension plan established under MGL Chapter 32 and is administered by the Barnstable County Retirement Board (BCRB). The BCRS 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 directly. Cost-of-living adjustments granted after 1997 must be approved by the BCRB and are borne by the BCRS. The BCRS issues a publicly available unaudited financial report in accordance with guidelines established by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts’ Public Employee Retirement Administration Commission (PERAC) that includes financial statements and required supplementary information. The report may be obtained by writing to the Barnstable County Retirement System, 750 Attucks Lane, Hyannis, Massachusetts 02601. Funding Policy – Plan members are required to contribute to the BCRS at rates ranging from 5% to 11% of annual covered compensation. The Town and County are required to pay into the BCRS for its share of the system-wide actuarial determined contribution that is apportioned among the employers based on active current payroll. The contributions of plan members, the Town, and the County are governed by Chapter 32 of the MGL. The Town’s contributions to the BCRS for the fiscal years ended June 30, 2014, 2013, and 2012 were $4,667,475, $4,543,194, and $4,372,452 respectively, which equaled its required contribution for each year. The County’s contributions to the BCRS for the fiscal years ended June 30, 2014, 2013, and 2012 were $44,672, $40,348, and $41,544 respectively, which equaled its required contribution for each year. The schedules of funding progress, presented as required supplementary information (RSI) following the notes to the financial statements, present multi-year trend information about whether the actuarial values of plan assets are increasing or decreasing over time relative to the actuarial accrued liability for benefits. B. Massachusetts Teachers’ Retirement System Teachers and certain administrative employees of the School Department participate in a contributory retirement system administered by the Massachusetts Teachers Retirement Board. Contributions to that system totaled $2,765,243 for the fiscal year and were made entirely by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, on behalf of the Town, which does not contribute directly to this system. C. Other Post-Employment Benefits (OPEB) Plan Description – The Town administers a multiple-employer defined benefit healthcare plan (the “Plan”). The Plan provides health and life insurance benefits to current and future retirees, their dependents and beneficiaries in accordance with Massachusetts General Law Chapter 32B. Specific benefit provisions and contribution rates are established by collective bargaining Town of Nantucket, Massachusetts Page 70 of 124 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report agreements, state law, and Town ordinance. All benefits are provided through the Town’s self- funded insurance program described previously. The Plan does not issue a stand–alone financial report. The number of participants in the Plan consists of 463 active employees and 307 retired employees for a total of 770. Funding Policy – The contribution requirements of Plan members and the Town are established and may be amended by the Town, through negotiation with the Town employee unions. Retirees contribute 10 – 20 percent of the calculated contribution through pension benefit deductions. The remainder of the cost is funded by the Town. The Town pays the remainder. The Town currently contributes enough money to the Plan to satisfy current obligations on a pay- as-you-go basis. The costs of administering the Plan are paid by the Town. Annual OPEB Cost and Net OPEB Obligation – The Town’s annual OPEB cost is calculated based on the annual required contribution “ARC” of the employer, an actuarially determined amount that is calculated in accordance with GASB Statement #45. The ARC represents a level of funding that, if paid on an ongoing basis, is projected to cover normal cost each year and amortize any unfunded liabilities over a period not to exceed thirty years. The following table reflects the activity regarding the Town’s OPEB obligation: Trend information regarding annual OPEB cost, the percentage of the annual OPEB cost contributed and the net OPEB obligation is as follows: Fiscal Year Ending Annual OPEB Cost (AOPEBC) Percentage of AOPEBC Contributed Net OPEB Obligation June 30, 2012 $ 6,257,000 40.5% $ 24,161,583 June 30, 2013 $ 7,177,116 36.4% $ 28,726,456 June 30, 2014 $ 7,587,850* 37.8% $ 33,444,609 * Reflected in the Statement of Activities as follows: The AOPEBC at June 30, 2014 was charged to the following functional programs: General Government $650,726; Public Safety $1,387,817; Education $3,812,721; Public Works $362,761; Health and Human Services $126,245; Culture and Recreation $83,127; Siasconset water $119,097; Wannacomet water $66,408; Sewer $186; Airport $385,890; and Old Island Home $592,872.

Amounts determined regarding the funded status of the Plan and the ARC of the employer are subject to continual revision as estimates are compared to actual results and past expectations. The schedules of funding progress, presented as required supplementary information (RSI) following the notes to the financial statements, present multi-year trend information about whether the actuarial values of plan assets are increasing or decreasing over time relative to the AAL for benefits. Methods and Assumptions – Projections of benefits for financial reporting purposes are based on the substantive Plan 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 the Plan members to that point. The actuarial methods and assumptions used include techniques that are designed to reduce short-term volatility in actuarial accrued liabilities and the actuarial value of assets, consistent with the long-term perspective of the calculations. The significant methods and assumptions as of the latest valuation are as follows: Valuation date: June 30, 2012 Actuarial cost method Projected Unit Credit Amortization method 4.0 percent increasing Remaining amortization period: 30 years (open) Interest discount rate: 4.5 percent Inflation rate: 4.0 percent Healthcare/Medical cost trend rate: 8.0% decreasing by 0.5% for 6 years to an ultimate level of 5.0% per year Discretely Presented Component Unit – Nantucket County Plan Description – Nantucket County’s employees participate in the multiple-employer defined benefit healthcare plan administered by the Town which was described previously. Funding Policy – The contribution requirements of Plan members and the County are established and may be amended by the Town, through negotiation with the County employee unions. Retirees contribute 10 – 20 percent of the calculated contribution through pension benefit deductions. The remainder of the cost is funded by the County. The County currently contributes enough money to the Plan to satisfy current obligations on a pay-as-you-go basis. The costs of administering the Plan are paid by the Town.

The following table reflects the activity regarding the County's OPEB obligation: D. 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 years. Health Insurance – The Town maintains a "reinsured cost reimbursement program" which covers the group health insurance requirements of a majority of Town employees. The Plan is essentially a self-insurance program and employee claims in excess of $150,000 are reinsured by the Plan. The Town accrues an amount representing claims incurred but not reported (IBNR), which is based on a one month claims paid average. At June 30, 2014, the amount of the liability for IBNR health insurance claims totaled $775,395. This liability is the best estimate based on available information. In the fund-wide financial statements, the Town reports these self-insured activities in the Internal Service Fund where revenues are recorded when earned and expenses are recorded when the liability is incurred. Changes in the reported liability since July 1, 2011, are as follows: Balance at Beginning of Year Claims and Changes in Estimates Claims Payments Balance at End of Year Current Portion Fiscal Year 2014 $667,271 $13,328,647 $(13,220,523 $775,395 $775,395 Fiscal Year 2013 778,820 12,022,770 (12,134,319) 667,271 667,271 Fiscal Year 2012 729,885 11,207,253 (11,158,288) 778,820 778,820 Workers’ Compensation – The Town is also self-insured for their workers’ compensation activities.

Changes in the reported liability since July 1, 2011: Balance at Beginning of Year Claims and Changes in Estimates Claims Payments Balance at End of Year Current Portion Fiscal Year 2014 $161,236 $157,802 $(268,467) $50,571 $50,571 Fiscal Year 2013 89,510 234,186 (162,460) 161,236 161,236 Fiscal Year 2012 176,650 102,269 (262,133) 89,510 89,510 E. Commitments The Town is in the process of completing sewer and water system improvements. The Town has entered into contracts to expend approximately $325,000 and $700,000, respectively to complete the projects. F. Contingencies The Town is party to certain legal claims, which are subject to many uncertainties, and the outcome of individual litigation matters in these situations cannot be reasonably estimated. Although the amount of liability, if any, in these situations at June 30, 2014, cannot be ascertained, management believes that the resulting liability, if any, should not materially affect the basic financial statements of the Town at June 30, 2014. Other amounts received or receivable from grantor agencies are subject to audit and adjustment by grantor agencies, principally the federal and state governments. Any disallowed claims, including amounts already collected, may constitute a liability of the applicable funds. The amount, if any, of expenditures which may be disallowed by the grantor cannot be determined at this time although the Town expects such amounts, if any, to be immaterial. The Town is subject to certain Federal arbitrage laws in accordance with long-term borrowing agreements. Failure to comply with the rules could result in the payment of penalties. The Town does not believe it has failed to comply with any of these agreements. The Town is contingently liable for 35% of any deficit, including operating and debt service costs, which may be incurred by the Woods Hole, Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket Steamship Authority (the “Authority”). As of December 31, 2013, the Authority’s reserve fund balance totaled $2,642,500 and bonds outstanding totaled $54,132,860, net of unamortized premiums of $1,347,017 and a deferred loss on refunding of $64,157. For the fiscal year ended December 31, 2013, the Authority’s revenues exceeded its cost of services by $4,159,625. The Town is not required to make payments to the Authority unless the amount in the Authority’s reserve fund is insufficient. Since 1962, the Town has not made any payments to the Authority. Town of Nantucket, Massachusetts Page 74 of 124 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report G. Landfill Closure and Post-Closure Care Costs The Town operates a landfill under an Administrative Consent Order (ACO) with the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (DEP). The current ACO allows the Town to mine the current landfill for useable materials through fiscal year 2014. The landfill consists of five cells, three lined and two unlined. The largest cell is unlined and has been closed for several years with sections scheduled for excavation under the mining program. Two cells, which are no longer accepting waste, are uncapped and unlined and have been previously excavated under the mining program. Another cell is inactive, lined but uncapped. There is one lined cell that is currently accepting waste. The final capping and closure of the unclosed cells are dependent on construction of new cells and DEP approval of the continuation of the mining program. The Town has recognized a closure liability of $7,294,000 in the Solid Waste Enterprise fund. This liability is based on estimates of the cost of all closure and post-closure care for 30 years. Actual costs may change due to inflation, changes in technology, or changes in regulations. H. Implementation of GASB pronouncements Current Year Implementations – In March 2012, the GASB issued GASB Statement No. 65, Items Previously Reported as Assets and Liabilities. This Statement establishes accounting and financial reporting standards that reclassify, as deferred outflows of resources or deferred inflows of resources, certain items that were previously reported as assets and liabilities and recognizes, as outflows of resources or inflows of resources, certain items that were previously reported as assets and liabilities. This Statement also provides other financial reporting guidance related to the impact of the financial statement elements deferred outflows of resources and deferred inflows of resources, such as changes in the determination of the major fund calculations and limiting the use of the term deferred in financial statement presentations. The provisions of this Statement are effective for the Town in fiscal year 2014 and did not have a material effect on its financial statements. In March 2012, the GASB issued GASB Statement No. 66, an amendment of GASB Statements No. 10 and No. 62. The objective of this Statement is to improve accounting and financial reporting for a governmental financial reporting entity by resolving conflicting guidance that resulted from the issuance of two pronouncements, Statements No. 54, Fund Balance Reporting and Governmental Fund Type Definitions, and No. 62, Codification of Accounting and Financial Reporting Guidance Contained in Pre-November 30, 1989 FASB and AICPA Pronouncements. The provisions of this Statement became effective for the Town in fiscal year 2014 and did not have a material effect on its financial statements. In April 2013, the GASB issued GASB Statement No. 70, Accounting and Financial Reporting for Nonexchange Financial Guarantees. The objective of GASB 70 is to improve accounting and financial reporting by governments that extend and receive nonexchange financial guarantees. The provisions of GASB 70 became effective for the Town in fiscal year 2014 and did not have a material effect on its financial statements. Future Year Implementation In June 2012, the GASB issued GASB Statement No. 67, Financial Reporting for Pension Plans. This Statement replaces the requirements of Statement No. 25, Financial Reporting for Defined Benefit Pension Plans and Note Disclosures for Defined Contribution Plans and Statement 50 as Town of Nantucket, Massachusetts Page 75 of 124 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report they relate to pension plans that are administered through trusts or similar arrangements meeting certain criteria. This Statement builds upon the existing framework for financial reports of defined benefit pension plans, which includes a statement of fiduciary net position (the amount held in a trust for paying retirement benefits) and a statement of changes in fiduciary net position. Statement 67 enhances note disclosures and RSI for both defined benefit and defined contribution pension plans. Statement 67 also requires the presentation of new information about annual money-weighted rates of return in the notes to the financial statements and in 10-year RSI schedules. The provisions of GASB 67 become effective for the BCRS as of December 31, 2014 and the correlative impact will be reflected by the Town in fiscal year 2015. The Town believes the adoption of this statement will have a material impact on the financial statements. In June 2012, the GASB issued GASB Statement No. 68, Accounting and Financial Reporting for Pensions — an amendment of GASB Statement No. 27. Statement 68 replaces the requirements of Statement No. 27, Accounting for Pensions by State and Local Governmental Employers and Statement No. 50, Pension Disclosures, as they relate to governments that provide pensions through pension plans administered as trusts or similar arrangements that meet certain criteria. Statement 68 requires governments providing defined benefit pensions to recognize their long-term obligation for pension benefits as a liability for the first time, and to more comprehensively and comparably measure the annual costs of pension benefits. The Statement also enhances accountability and transparency through revised and new note disclosures and required supplementary information. The provisions of this Statement are effective for financial statements for periods beginning after June 15, 2013 (fiscal year 2014). The Town believes the adoption of this statement will have a material impact on the financial statements. In January 2013, the GASB issued GASB Statement No. 69, Government Combinations and Disposals of Government Operations. GASB 69 established accounting and financial reporting standards to government combinations and disposals of government operations. The provisions of this Statement are effective for financial reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2013 (fiscal year 2015). The Town is currently evaluating whether adoption will have a material impact on the financial statements. In November 2013, the GASB issued GASB Statement No. 71, Pension Transition for Contributions Made Subsequent to the Measurement Date – an amendment of GASB Statement No. 68. The Objective of GASB 71 is to address an issue regarding application of the transition provision of GASB 68. The issue relates to amounts associated with contributions, if any, made by a state or local government employer or nonemployer contributing entity to a defined pension plan after the measurement date of the government’s beginning net pension liability. The provisions of this Statement are effective for financial statements for periods beginning after June 15, 2014 (fiscal year 2015). The Town is currently evaluating whether adoption will have a material impact on the financial statements. Town of Nantucket, Massachusetts Page 76 of 124 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report IV. Prior Period Restatements Nantucket Island Land Bank (Discretely Presented Component Unit) As the result of implementing GASB Statement No. 65 the Land Bank was required to restate the beginning net position in its Statement of Net Position by $256,580 due to immediately expensing bond issuance costs that were previously being amortized. Nantucket Memorial Airport During 2014, the Town determined that charges that had previously been classified as maintenance more appropriately should have been capitalized to construction in process. As a result, beginning business-type activities net position and the Nantucket Memorial Airport enterprise fund were increased by $834,262.

Town of Nantucket, Massachusetts Page 87 of 124 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report TOWN OF NANTUCKET, MASSACHUSETTS NOTES TO REQUIRED SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION YEAR ENDED JUNE 30, 2014 I. Budgetary Basis of Accounting Budgetary Information – An annual budget is legally adopted for the General Fund and the Enterprise Funds. The annual budgets are prepared by Town Administration, reviewed and approved by the Board of Selectmen, recommended by the Finance Committee and voted by the taxpayers at the Annual Town Meeting. Expenditures may not legally exceed appropriations at the department level, or in the categories of personnel and non-personnel expenses. Transfers between and within departments require approval at a Special Town Meeting, unless allowed under Massachusetts General Law. At the close of each fiscal year, unencumbered appropriation balances lapse and revert to unassigned fund balance. The Town Meeting adopts an annual budget for the general fund in conformity with the guidelines described above. During fiscal year 2014, Town Meeting approved various supplemental budgetary appropriations which resulted in a net increase of approximately $1,050,000 from the original voted budget. The appropriations were funded primarily from free cash (unassigned fund balance) for additional enterprise fund subsidies and contributions for health insurance. The Finance Director’s Office has the responsibility to ensure that budgetary control is maintained in the manner in which the appropriations were voted by Town Meeting. Budgetary control is exercised through the Town’s accounting system. Budgetary-to-GAAP Reconciliation – The Town’s general fund is prepared on a basis of accounting other than GAAP to conform to the Uniform Municipal Accounting System basis of accounting as prescribed by the Massachusetts Department of Revenue. A reconciliation of the budgetary-basis to GAAP-basis results for the General Fund for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2014, is as follows: Basis of Accounting Fund Perspective Differences Differences Total Revenues on a budgetary basis 75,701,165$ Stabilization revenue -$ 35,320$ 35,320 Change in accruing revenues to GAAP basis (442,899) - (442,899) On behalf payments 2,765,243 - 2,765,243 Revenues on a GAAP basis 2,765,243$ -$ 78,058,829$ Expenditures on a budgetary basis 65,702,692$ Transfer recognition 154,346$ -$ 154,346 On behalf payments 2,765,243 - 2,765,243 Expenditures on a GAAP basis 2,765,243$ -$ 68,622,281$ Other financing (uses) on a budgetary basis (7,651,126)$ Stabilization transfer -$ 1,000,000$ 1,000,000 Other financing (uses) on a GAAP basis -$ 1,000,000$ (6,651,126)$ Town of Nantucket, Massachusetts Page 88 of 124 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report Combining Statements Town of Nantucket, Massachusetts Page 89 of 124 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report This page intentionally left blank.

The State estimates this "equalized valuation" for all municipalities every two years. Chapter 59, Section 21C of the Massachusetts General Laws, known as "Proposition 2 1/2", imposes 2 separate limits on the annual tax levy of the Town. The primary limitation is that the tax levy cannot exceed 2 1/2% of the full and fair cash value. The secondary limitation is that the tax levy cannot exceed the maximum levy limit for the preceding fiscal year as determined by the State Commissioner of Revenue by more than 2 1/2%, subject to an exception for property added to the tax rolls and for certain valuation increases. This secondary limit may be exceeded in any fiscal year by majority approval of the voters, however, it cannot exceed the primary limitation.
