I'm curious about the role of reserve funds in all of this. There are significant reserves held by many of the boards and agencies. What is the level of reserve funds for DM, and how do they project using those funds? It seems that reserves could be used to cover for less than projected income until the budget can be adjusted in future years.

Also, did DM not see this coming? Were their budgets unrealistic to begin with?

Thank you for your research and explanation.
