Question #1

The following summarizes the history of the Sharp City Recreation Center:

1. In 1987, the city constructed the building at a cost of $1,500,000. Of this amount, $1,000,000 was ?nanced with bonds and the balance from unrestricted city funds.

2. In the ten years from 1987 through 1996, the city recorded depreciation (as appropriate) based on an estimated useful life of 30 years.

3. In the same period, the city repaid $750,000 of the bonds.

4. In 1997, the city renovated the building at a cost of $3,000,000. The entire amount was ?nanced with unrestricted city funds. The renovation was expected to extend the useful life of the building so that it would last a total of 25 more years-that is, until 2021.

5. In the 15 years from 1997 through 2011, the city recorded depreciation (as appropriate). Depreciation was calculated by dividing the undepreciated balance of the original cost, plus the costs of renovation, over the anticipated remaining life of 25 years.

6. In the same period, the city repaid the $ 250,000 balance of the debt.

7. In 2012, the city demolished the building so that the land on which it is situated could be converted into softball ?elds.
