He pointed out several pages, but told Council the audit includes additional wording that deals with a FRS (Florida Retirement Service) disclosure. It shows the impact it has had on the net pension liability. Most entities have had a negative position. The auditors now have to record future obligations of those who are employeed. It is based on the life expectancy. The Town of Glen St. Mary plays a miniscule part over all in the state figures. The management’s discussion and analysis on page 4 shows the Town’s overall net position increased by approximately $21,190. It also shows the total ending unrestricted net position was approximately $147,533. He touched on several other pages with various breakdowns of the various accounts.
