  10. Unclaimed Property Fund. The state has established a fund to account for abandoned and unclaimed property. The property is held in the fund for 10 years. If a legal claimant to the property is not found within the 10-year time period, the property reverts to the state.

2. Investment Trust Fund. The Albertville City Council decided to pool the investments of its General Fund with Albertville Schools and Richwood Township in an investment pool to be managed by the city. Each of the pool participants had reported its investments at fair value as of the end of 2016. At the date of creation of the pool, February 15, 2017, the fair value of the investments of each pool participant was as follows:




City of Albertville General Fund

$ 890,000


Albertville Schools



Richwood Township






Using this information:

  1. Prepare the journal entries that should be made by the City of Albertville, Albertville Schools, and Richwood Township on February 15 to record their participation in the investment pool. (Entries for the investment pool trust fund will be made later.)
  2. Prepare the journal entries to be made in the accounts of the investment pool trust fund to record the following transactions of the first year of operations:
    1. Record the investments transferred to the pool; assume that the investments of the city’s General Fund were in U.S. Treasury notes and the investments of both the schools and the township were in certificates of deposit (CDs).
    2. On June 15, the Richwood Township decided to withdraw $3,010,000 for a capital projects payment. At the date of the withdrawal, the fair value of the Treasury notes has increased by $30,000. Assume that the trust fund is able to redeem the CDs necessary to complete the withdrawal without a penalty but does not receive interest on the funds.
    3. On September 15, interest on Treasury notes in the amount of $50,000 was collected.
    4. Interest on CDs accrued at year-end amounted to $28,000.

Assume that there were no additional changes in the fair value of investments after the Richwood Township withdrawal. Round the amount of the distribution to each fund or participant to the nearest dollar.
  3. Record the June 15 increase in each of the participant’s funds.
  4. Record the change in each participant’s Equity in Pooled Investment account due to the September 15 treasury interest and December 31 CD interest accrual.
