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:

      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.
    5. At the end of the year, undistributed earnings were allocated to the
      investment pool participants. 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.
  5. Explain how the investment trust fund would report the General
    Fund’s interest in the investment pool and the Albertville School’s
    interest in the investment pool.
