The Addison Town Charter requires that Town staff prepare an Annual Comprehensive Financial Report (ACFR) which shows the status of the Town’s finances. The Charter also requires that the Town’s financial statements be audited annually by an independent external auditing firm. The results of the independent external audit are included in the Fiscal Year 2022 ACFR. On February 13, Addison's FORVIS, LLP, an independent firm of licensed certified public accountants, shared with Council that it issued an unmodified opinion, which means that the financial statements are presented, in all material respects, in accordance with applicable financial reporting framework. Simply stated, an unmodified opinion is a clean opinion.

Council approved a resolution at its June 14 meeting that provides notice of the Town's intent to issue Certificates of Obligation in an amount not to exceed $13,000,000. That amount encompasses the proposed streets, infrastructure, and issuance costs related to the reconstruction of Midway Road and water and sewer utility improvement projects.

Addison's current utility rate model extends through Fiscal Year (FY) 2023. The Town hired utility rate consultant Raftelis Financial Consultants, Inc. to update and extend the rate model through FY2028. The rate model update was conducted according to the policy adopted by Council in 2018 to include a mix of cash and bond-funded capital projects, to maintain a fund balance of at least 25%, and provide systematic rate increases.
The new plan recommends the following increases over the next five years:
FY2024, FY2025, and FY2026 - 5.5%
FY2027 - 4%
FY2028 - 3.5%
Council will formally adopt the rate model's financial plan for fiscal years 2024-2028 at a future meeting. On an annual basis, staff will review the actual activity compared to the rate model and make rate recommendations to Council during the budget process.
