Columbus City was awarded a state reimbursement grant of $150,000 to assist its adult literacy program. The following were significant events relating to the grant:
a. The city, which is on a calendar year, was notified of the award in November 2012.
b. During 2013 it expended $30,000 on the iteracy program and was reimbursed for $20,000. It expected to receive the balance in January 2014.
c. In 2014 it expended the remaining $120,000 and was reimbursed by the state for the $10,000 owing from 2013 and the amount spent in 2014.

How much revenue should the city recognize in its governmental fund statements in each of the three years? Explain.
