     RODNEY A. DOLE  AUDITOR-CONTROLLER TREASURER -TAX COLLECTOR                  Board of Directors Shiloh Public Cemetery District 7130 Windsor Road Windsor, CA 95492      We have audited the accompanying financial statements of the Shiloh Public Cemetery District (the District), as of and for the year ended June 30, 2008, which collectively comprise the basic financial statements as listed in the table of contents. These financial statements are the responsibility of the District’s management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on the financial statements based on our audit.  We conducted our audit in accordance with auditing standards generally accepted in the United States of America. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatements. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinion.  In our opinion, the financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of the District as of June 30, 2008, and the respective changes in its financial position for the year then ended, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.  As described in Note IV.C of the Notes to the Basic Financial Statements, the Auditor-Controller is mandated by various statutes within the California Government Code to perform certain accounting, auditing, and financial reporting functions. These activities, in themselves, necessarily impair the auditor’s independence. However, we believe adequate safeguards and divisions of responsibility exist. We also believe that subject to this qualification, the information in the audit report can be relied upon.  
 
The Management’s Discussion and Analysis (MD&A) on pages 1 through 6 is not a required part of the basic financial statements but is supplementary information required by the Government Accounting Standards Board. We have applied certain limited procedures, which consisted principally of inquiries of management regarding the methods of measurement and presentation of the required supplementary information. However, we did not audit the information and express no opinion on it.      April 7, 2009

Management’s Discussion and Analysis
  As management of the Shiloh Public Cemetery District (the District) we offer readers of the District’s financial statements this narrative overview and analysis of the financial activities of the District for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2008. We encourage readers to consider the information presented here in conjunction with the District’s financial statements and the accompanying notes to the basic financial statements.   Financial Highlights   assets of the District exceeded its liabilities at the close of the most recent fiscal year byThe $683,220 (net assets). Of this amount, $281,925 (unrestricted net assets) may be used to meet the government’s ongoing obligations to citizens and creditors.   increase is a result of revenues ThisThe District’s total net assets increased by $134,877. exceeding expenses in the governmental activities.  As of the close of the current fiscal year, the District’s governmental fund reported an ending fund balance of $299,914, an increase of $1,457, in comparison with the prior year. All of this ending fund balance is available for spending at the government’s discretion (unreserved fund balance).  At the end of the year, unreserved fund balance for the general fund was $299,914 or 66% of the total general fund expenditures of $452,727.   Overview of the Financial Statements  This discussion and analysis is intended to serve as an introduction to the District’s basic financial statements. The District’s basic financial statements comprise three components: 1) government-wide financial statements, 2) fund financial statements, and 3) notes to the basic financial statements. This report also contains other supplementary information in addition to the basic financial statements themselves.  Government-wide financial statements.The government-wide financial statements are designed to provide readers with a broad overview of the District’s finances, in a manner similar to a private-sector business.  The statement of net assets presents information on all of the District’s assets and liabilities, with the difference between the two reported as net assets. Over time, increases or decreases in net assets may serve as a useful indicator of whether the financial position of the District is improving or deteriorating.  The statement of activities presents information showing how the government’s net assets changed during the most recent fiscal year. All changes in net assets are reported as soon as the underlying event giving rise to the change occurs, regardless of the timing of related cash flows. Thus, revenues and expenses are reported in this statement for some items that will only result in cash flows in future fiscal periods (e.g., uncollected taxes and earned but unused vacation leave).

Fund financial statementsgrouping of related accounts that is used to maintain fund is a . A control over resources that have been segregated for specific activities or objectives. The District, like other state and local governments, uses fund accounting to ensure and demonstrate compliance with finance-related legal requirements. The District’s funds are a governmental fund and fiduciary fund.  Governmental funds funds are used to account for essentially the same. Governmental 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 the end of the fiscal year. Such information may be useful in evaluating a government’s near-term financing requirements.  Because the focus of governmental funds is narrower than that of the government-wide financial statements, it is useful to compare the information presented for governmental funds with similar information presented for governmental activities in the government-wide financial statements. By doing so, readers may better understand the long-term impact of the government’s near-term financing decisions. Both the governmental fund balance sheet and the governmental fund statements of revenues, expenditures, and changes in fund balances provide a reconciliation to facilitate this comparison between governmental funds and governmental activities.  The District uses a governmental fund to account for its activities, which include burial services in the district boundaries. The district adopts an annual appropriated budget for its funds. A budgetary comparison statement has been provided for the general fund to demonstrate compliance with this budget.  Fiduciary funds.Fiduciary funds are used to account for resources held for the benefit of parties outside the district. Fiduciary funds are not reflected in the government-wide financial statement because the resources of those funds are not available to support the district’s own programs. Fiduciary funds use the accrual basis of accounting.  Notes to the basic financial statements. The notes provide additional information that is essential to a full understanding of the data provided in the government-wide and fund financial statements.   Government-wide Financial Analysis  As noted earlier, net assets may serve over time as a useful indicator of a government’s financial position. In the case of the District, assets exceeded liabilities by $683,220 at the close of the most recent fiscal year.

For the same time period, total general fund expenditures were $452,727. As a measure of the general fund’s liquidity, it may be useful to compare unreserved fund balance and total fund balance to total fund expenditures. Unreserved fund balance represents 66% of total general fund expenditures. The total fund balance equals the unreserved fund balance.
