5. Krauss
County had outstanding $35 million in Series 1991 general obligation bonds on
June 30, 2007. The bonds were issued at
an interest rate of 10 percent with interest payable on June 30 and December
31. In July 2007, interest rates had
declined substantially, and the County issued refunding bonds in the amount of
$35 million at 5 percent. The proceeds
of the new refunding bonds were placed in escrow along with $2,800,000 held in
the County’s debt service fund as a sinking fund for the 1991 debt. The proceeds of the refunding bonds and the
sinking fund amount would be used in December 2007 (the call date) to purchase
the 1991 debt at a 3 percent call premium, totaling $1,050,000, plus accrued
interest of $1,750,000. The County had
$250,000 of unamortized debt issue costs on the 1991 bonds, which it reported
in its government-wide financial statements.
This amount combined with the call premium resulted in a $3,050,000
“loss†on the refunding. REQUIRED:

(a) What
journal entries should the County make in July 2007 to record the in-substance
defeasance of the 1991 debt in its debt service fund?
(b) What debt
should be reported in the County’s government-wide financial statements at July
2007?
(c) What
journal entry should be made in the County’s debt service fund in December 2007
to record the purchase of the old debt at the call date?
(d) How should
the “loss†on the refunding be recognized in the government-wide financial
statements? Why did the GASB choose this
method of recognition?

the citizens living on Coolidge Avenue agreed to a capital improvement special
assessment to replace sidewalks on both sides of the avenue. The City will oversee the construction, issue
special assessment debt to pay for it, and bill (assess) homeowners for their
portion of the cost. The estimated cost
of the project is $3.0 million. The City
itself will be responsible for 25 percent of the cost ($750,000). However, the
City also has indicated that it will be responsible for any defaults on the
part of homeowners. Because the City uses a separate capital projects fund for
the project, it does not integrate budgetary accounts. However it does use encumbrance accounting.

the City’s funds and discussion as follows.
Be sure to indicate which fund would record the entry.

puts the project out for bid and accepts the lowest competent bid of $2.8
