GRU revenues support essential services for our community
Each year GRU transfers a portion of our revenues to the City of Gainesville's General Fund. The amount of the transfer is negotiated annually between GRU and General Government.
The General Fund Transfer is an important part of our budget, accounting for nearly 10 percent of the utility’s gross operating revenues and nearly 30 percent of net operating revenues. For fiscal year 2014, about $37.3 million was transferred to support General Government operations.
The General Fund of the City of Gainesville supports services such as:
- Fire rescue
- Parks and recreation
- Cultural operations
- Other important services in our community
