The estimated total cost of the series of projects, which are expected to extend over the next three years, was $10,200,000. In addition to the bond financing, voters also approved a special ½ cent sales tax to assist in financing the projects. The sales tax begins January 1, 2017 and will continue for five years. The sales tax is projected to generate $500,000 each year.RequiredPrepare general journal entries as necessary to record the transactions described below in the Street Improvement Fund general journal and, if applicable, in the governmental activities general journal.

A bid of $2,100,000 was accepted, and the contract was awarded for the Elm Street Project. The contract provided for a retained percentage of 5 percent from each progress payment, and from the final payment, until final inspection and acceptance by the city’s public works inspectors.Required: Record the signing of the contract in the Street Improvement Fund general journal.
