A useful way to weigh this information would be to look at the relative changes within a particular group's budget from the first year, which was based on the best guess, to subsequent years, when reality set in and unexpected costs were accounted for. Regarding contributions in lieu of cash: In my community, we're all putting that in already, as we divide up the various kinds of work according to our (continually evolving) work agreements. Work agreements are a kind of budget, really; in our community, they're very separate from the money budget. The money budget is for cash expenditures, normal expenses (maintenance + reserves + improvements), those items that cannot be settled by barter within the community. To all communities: If you want to, send or bring your example budgets to the conference, and they'll be a resource there, plus we'll look into a way to make them more widely available afterward. -- Marci, Puget Ridge Cohousing, Seattle ---------- From: cohousing-l [at] freedom.mtn.org on behalf of JJSherwood [at] aol.com Sent: Thursday, September 11, 1997 7:28 PM Subject: Budgets and Fees This is my first post in several months. So, Hello... At Deer Island Village (Marin County near San Francisco), we are struggling with how to project our first year's budget, and then prepare a monthy fee or dues for each of our 18 families. We would very much appreciate the opportunity to review some annual budgets from CoHo communities that have a history. We are especially interested in what all needs to be included as line items in an annual budget, including depreciation and the need to put aside funds for a new roof on the common house, pave the road, replace expendable items in the common house, etc.... We will be very happy to receive any help anyone can provide. How do you deal with work contributions in lieu of cash...? Since I always have great difficulty in reading files attached to e-mail messages (often it is impossible for me to do so), please include any enclosures within the body of the e-mail itself. Many thanks. I am: jjsherwood [at] aol.com P.O. Box 330145 San Francisco, CA 94133-0145 (415) 989-6189
