Budget cuts as a result of lost revenue have made the City of Tamarac close our parks every Monday, with no plans to revert to the former schedule. It’s no wonder why I found today’s story in the Sun-Sentinel about cities hoarding extra rainy day cash so upsetting.

According to the Sun-Sentinel, Tamarac has $24.5 million dollars in unreserved funds. This amount is in excess of 75% of it’s total annual expenditures of $32.6 million for 2010. It goes on to say that the recommended minimum of the Government Finance Officers Association is about 17% of it’s annual expenditures. To clarify, this means that Tamarac is holding on to over $19 million in excess reserve funds.
