11.  City Council approve the 2020 service levels for Toronto Water as outlined in Appendix 1 to the report (November 12, 2019) from the General Manager, Toronto Water titled "Recommended 2020 Service Levels – Toronto Water".

Summary

This report presents the recommended 2020 water and wastewater consumption rates and service fees arising from the concurrent adoption by City Council of the recommended 2020 Toronto Water Operating and Capital Budgets. This report also recommends the adoption by City Council of additional eligibility criteria related to utility billing adjustments to water accounts for uncontrollable and unexplainable consumption increases under Municipal Code Chapter 849.  

 

In accordance with the City Council 10 year capital plan approved in 2015, this report recommends a 3.0 percent water and wastewater consumption rate increase, effective January 1, 2020.  In addition, this report recommends inflationary fee increases for certain existing water and wastewater service fees, reflecting cost recovery for these services.  

 

The recommended 2020 water and wastewater consumption rates and service fees will allow the Toronto Water Program to remain fully self-funded and financially stable, with both operating and capital needs being met without excessive year-over-year fluctuations in pricing over the long term.

Financial Impact

Rates and Fees

 

The City of Toronto Water and Wastewater Program (the “Program”) is currently fully funded on a ‘pay-as-you-go’ basis through a combined water and wastewater rate without any reliance on property taxes or borrowing/debenture financing.  The property tax supported budget is not impacted by adoption of the recommendations contained in this report. 

 

Based on the recommended 2020 Toronto Water Operating and Capital Budgets, the updated water consumption forecast, and Council's direction that the Capital Plan be predicated on 3% rate increase in 2020 for planning purposes, a rate increase of 3.0%, effective January 1, 2020 is recommended for Block 1 consumers and Block 2 industrial process-use consumers. A 3.0% increase, effective January 1, 2020 will raise additional $37.17 million revenue for the Program.

 

The Toronto Water 2020 Operating and Capital Budget requires a combined water and wastewater expenditure level of $1.390 billion, which is fully funded from the recommended 2020 water and wastewater consumption rates and service fees.

 

As shown in Chart 1 below, the recommended rate increase impact on an average home consuming 230 m3/year, billed at the Block 1 Rate, will be 3 percent or $27 over the calendar year (from $910 in 2019 to $937 in 2020).  The impact of the 3 percent increase on a commercial consumer at the Block 1 rate and an industrial consumer at the Block 2 rate with annual consumption of 100,000 m3 will be $11,860  and $8,478 respectively, the latter reflecting a 30 percent discount over the Block 1 rate for eligible industrial consumers. The rate increase impact on a large industrial consumer of 1,000,000 m3 eligible for the Block 2 rate will be $83,178.

The recommended increases to certain water and wastewater service fees set out in Appendix C are expected to generate additional revenue of approximately $1,030,757 which is intended to offset the cost increases associated with delivering these services.

 

Service Levels

 

The service levels recommended in the report (November 12, 2019) from the General Manager, Toronto Water titled "Recommended 2020 Service Levels – Toronto Water" are fully funded by the 2020 Recommended Operating and Capital Budgets for Toronto Water.

Summary

This report outlines the recommended 2020 Solid Waste Management Services Rates and Fees arising from the adoption of the recommended 2020 Solid Waste Management Services Operating and Capital Budgets. The recommended rate and fee increases will vary based on customer group and are highlighted in Table 1.

The 2020 Recommended Operating Budget is $360.104 million, an increase of $10.169 million or 2.9 percent over 2019 plus $18.800 million contribution to the Waste Management Reserve Fund all of which are offset by total revenues of $378.904 million.  The increase in operating expenditures is attributable to the increase in organic collection and processing costs due to volume and contractual inflation adjustments, start-up of the Dufferin Renewable Natural Gas and Ingram Compressed Natural Gas facilities, increase in debt principal and interest payments to fund the 10-Year Capital Budget and Plan.

 

The 2020 Recommended Capital Budget is $81.335 million which is comprised of $59.404 million in new 2020 funding and $21.931 million in funding carried forward from 2019 into 2020.  Key capital objectives and priorities for Solid Waste Management Services in the 2020 Capital Program are:

 

To safely and efficiently collect materials from 875,000 homes, business and public spaces by implementing Council's direction on health and safety by installing telematics solutions on vehicles in support of Vision Zero 2.0; In addition, a cornerstone of the Program is to manage 900,000 plus tonnes of material in an environmentally and fiscally sustainable manner by accelerating the development of the 3rd Anaerobic Digester; and

 
To continue to develop and invest in Renewable Natural Gas facilities and the purchase of Natural Gas Vehicles.  
 

The proposed 2.45 percent blended rate increase in Solid Waste Management Services Rates and Fees is in line with inflation and will generate $7.124 million in additional revenues necessary to maintain Council Approved service levels as well as improved and enhanced services in many areas, and fund the 2020 Recommended Capital Budget and 10-Year Capital Plan.

Financial Impact

Rates and Fees

 

Solid Waste Management Services is a utility funded program from a combination of service rates and fees, recoverable debt, other charges, the sale of recyclables and industry stewardship funding. The recommended 2020 Budget provides funding to support Solid Waste Management Services operations and capital projects, diversion by reducing materials entering the waste stream and overall waste sent to landfill.

 

Revenues total $378.904 million in the recommended 2020 Operating Budget as outlined in the table below.

Service Rates and Fees of $321.503 million represent 85 percent of total revenues which consists of various rate increases based on customer classification equating to a blended 2.45 percent increase to the 2019 approved Solid Waste Management Services rates and fees. The 2020 Recommended Rates and Fees associated with the various customers and services are outlined in Appendix A.

 

In addition, Solid Waste Management Services' Tipping Fees for residential and commercial customers and City divisions, agencies and corporations are recommended to increase by 25 percent per tonne. This results in garbage tipping fees increasing from $127.22 per tonne to $159.03 per tonne and recyclable tipping fees increasing from $95.42 per tonne to $119.28 per tonne. This adjustment is required to move towards recovering the full cost of the service which for garbage and recycling is approximately $300 and $200 per tonne respectively.

 

In the recommendations of the Solid Waste Management Services 2019 Solid Waste Rates and Fees Report, City Council directed the General Manager, Solid Waste Management Services and the Executive Director, Financial Planning to develop a Multi-Year Financial Strategy and sustainable rate structure for Solid Waste Management Services and report back to Budget Committee. The strategy and sustainable rate structure exercise was undertaken in 2019 by KPMG Consulting and its findings were taken into consideration when preparing the 2020 Operating Budget and 10-Year Capital Budget and Plan. Further review of findings and impacts will be undertaken and inform future budget processes. KPMG Consulting's mandate was to:

 

-  recommend user fees equaling the cost of providing the service and establish a 10-year sustainable rate plan to adequately fund operations and capital reserves to eliminate the structural funding gap in the 10-Year Capital Budget and Plan;
-  analyze the potential financial impact of transitioning to full Extended Producer Responsibility starting in 2023; and
-  review the use of recoverable debt to fund the construction of capital infrastructure.  This report implements KPMG Consulting's findings.
 

The recommended 2020-2029 Capital Budget and 10-Year Plan totals $768.111 million, which includes 2019 capital carryovers of $21.931 million and is financed by reserve funding of $409.493 million (53 percent) and recoverable debt of $358.618 million (47 percent). 

 

The recommended 2020 Capital Budget, including carry forwards, totals $81.335 million, which is financed by reserve funding of $48.487 million (60.0 percent) and recoverable debt of $32.848 million (40.0 percent).

 

The City issues debt on behalf of Solid Waste Management Services and debt servicing costs are repaid to the City by Solid Waste Management Services through the Debt Reserve Fund financed by operating fee revenues.  Capital projects are funded by the Program's operating contributions to the Waste Management Reserve Fund, Fleet Reserve, Green Lane Reserve Fund and Perpetual Care Reserve Fund.

 

The 2020 Rate and Fee increase is required to support Solid Waste Management Services' current capital needs as well as off-setting operating budget pressures of $8.728 million and service enhancements of $2.802 million for the start-up of the new Renewable Natural Gas Facility at the Dufferin Solid Waste Management Facility in collaboration with Enbridge Gas Distributions Inc. and the implementation of a Health and Safety Unit to provide divisional oversite and compliance activities and oversite of Vision Zero 2.0 initiatives.       

 

The Solid Waste Management Services 2020 Operating Budget also includes $30.449 million to repay debt issued to fund capital infrastructure needs ($12.449 million) and to pay for the Green Lane Landfill acquisition and development ($18.000 million).

 

Recommended Rate and Fee Multi-Year Sustainability Plan

 

At its meeting of March 7, 2019 City Council adopted the recommendations in the Executive Committee Report EX2.3 "2019 Rate Supported Budgets – Solid Waste Management Services and Recommended 2019 Solid Waste Rates & Fees" and directed the General Manager, Solid Waste Management Services and the Executive Director, Financial Planning to develop a Multi-Year Financial Strategy and rate structure for the Solid Waste Management Services Division and to report back to the Budget Committee.

 

A study was undertaken in 2019 by KPMG Consulting and Solid Waste Management Services to develop a sustainable multi-year financial plan under the following scenarios:

 

-  Develop a baseline scenario that trues-up the rates to equal the cost of providing existing services. 

 
-  Assess the potential impact of full Extended Producer Responsibility starting in 2023 that identifies the impact of the City's reduced recycling responsibilities when recycling collection, processing and recycling disposal responsibilities are transferred from the City of Toronto to producers of printed paper and packaging. 
 

-  Review Solid Waste Management Services 10-Year Capital Budget and Plan funding to ensure capital reserve contributions and recoverable debt adequately fund current and future infrastructure requirements. 

 

Rate True-Up to equal cost of providing the service:

 

The KPMG Consultant study confirmed and identified the following:

 
-  Single Family customer rates need to be higher than other customers as a result of generating leaf and yard waste material.

 
-  Commercial customers tipping fees do not account for the full cost of providing the service.

 

The 2020 Operating Budget recommends the following:

 
-  User Fees for Multi-Residential Customers increase by 1.50 percent and Single Family and Residential Units above Commercial increase by 2.50 percent both increasing to 2.00 percent and 3.00 percent respectively over the remaining eight years to 2029.  
-  Single Family rate increase 1.00% higher than the Multi-Residential rate effectively narrowing the gap to reflect the true cost of providing the service by customer group as shown below over the 10-year rate plan:

Commercial customer rates have typically been lower than Single Family user fees and do not account for the full cost of providing the services.  Similarly, we are recommending to continue increasing Commercial customer rates at 6.00 percent over the 10-Year Rate Plan to normalize the rate increase to represent the full cost of providing the service.  

 
Tipping fees for garbage and recyclable material do not reflect the full cost of providing the service and are recommended to increase by 25 percent in 2020. The KPMG Consultant Study identified the need to double waste tipping rates from existing 2019 rates to reflect the full cost of the service. Fees will be increased incrementally to monitor the elasticity of users and impact on operations.
 

In order to fund capital requirements and Council's approved Long-Term Solid Waste Management Strategy, the division must develop a 15 to 20 year rate strategy to address out-of-scope capital needs.  This work will be completed in 2020/2021.

 

Extended Producer Responsibility Scenarios

 

The Consultant Study ran a number of Extended Producer Responsibility scenarios assuming that in 2023 the City's recycling responsibilities will be transferred to producers.  There are a number of unknowns as the regulatory landscape and planned transition to full Extended Producer Responsibility under current transition plans by the Province is between 2023 and 2025.  The Study indicated that if the City of Toronto is no longer responsible for managing the blue box system and the responsibilities are transferred to Producers, certain efficiencies are estimated between $15.000 and $20.000 million could be realized annually.  The 2023 Operating Budget includes $15.000 million in efficiencies. These savings have been included as a funding source for the 10-Year Capital budget and Plan starting in 2023.  If Extended Producer Responsibility does not materialize, user fee rates will need to increase beyond the proposed changes in 2023 in lieu of realizing the anticipated $15.000 million in efficiencies.

 

Solid Waste Management Services 10-Year Capital Budget and Plan funding

 

This report recommends that the blended user fee increase from 2.45 percent in 2020 (rate of inflation) to 3.00 percent in 2029 as indicated in the above 2020 Recommended and 2021 to 2029 Proposed User Fee Increases table.  In addition, Extended Producer Responsibility funding of $15 million is included starting in 2023 and revenues generated from the sale of Renewable Natural Gas of $2.500 million beginning in 2023 increasing to $3.000 million in 2024 and $10.000 million annually to 2029.  The Extended Producer Responsibility funding was not included in last year's plan and it contributes to keeping user fee increases to the rate of inflation over the 10-year Capital Budget and Plan.  However, if Extended Producer Responsibility is not implemented or the City of Toronto is transitioned to Extended Producer Responsibility in later years (2024 or 2025), a future rate increase may be required increase approximately 1 percent per year starting in 2023.

 

Estimated future rates and fee increases will vary by customer group as described in Appendix B.

 

Given the recommended rate increase, as well as Extended Producer Responsibility and Renewable Natural Gas funding the Capital or Waste Management Reserve balance will decline from $96.909 million in 2020 to $36.902 million in 2023 and to $88.244 million in 2029 which is adequate to fund the recommended 10-Year Capital Budget and Plan and provides a reserve balance base for future year requirements beyond 2029 such as a new or expanded land fill site or other Council approved diversion facility.

Two projects have been accelerated from future periods beyond the 10-Year Capital Budget and Plan which includes the Organics Processing Facility or the 3rd Anaerobic Digester ($130.000 million) and the Land Fill Capacity Development Project ($20.000 million).

 

Pending initiatives and actions, in addition to Extended Producer Responsibility uncertainties, that may impact Solid Waste Management Services future operating costs and revenues opportunities are as follows:

 

-  Expiry and renewal of three major operating contracts valued at $450.000 million over the next two years, which include:

 

-  Services related to the operations of Green Lane Landfill contract expiring March 31, 2021;

 

-  District 2 Collection contract expiring August 2021;

 

-  Single Stream Recovery Material Processing Contract expiring April 2020; and,

 

-  Haulage services to Green Lane Landfill expiring December 2020. Outcome of these tenders may impact operating costs.

 

-  Increased blue bin contamination which is negatively impacting recycling programs and processing costs.

 

The extent to which these initiatives will impact future expenditures and revenues is not fully known at this time.  Staff will report back on a Multi-Year Financial Strategy once these impacts are known.

3a Parking Market Analysis for 2020 Toronto Parking Authority Budget Submission
Origin
(September 20, 2019) Letter from the Board of Directors of the Toronto Parking Authority
Summary

At its meeting of  September, 20, 2019, the Board of Directors of the Toronto Parking Authority:

 

1.  Referred the report (September 18, 2019) from the Acting President, Toronto Parking Authority, to the Budget Committee for consideration during the 2020 budget process

 

This report responds to the request from Toronto City Council to the President of Toronto Parking Authority to include a parking market analysis, annually, as part of its budget submission.

 

The parking market served by Toronto Parking Authority consists of two main service streams: the on-street program and off-street program. The on-street parking stream includes all of the approximately 19,000 paid on-street parking spaces, which accept payment by way of parking machines or through the Green P App, and a few legacy single-space parking meters. The comprehensive parking market analysis of this on-street program is undertaken for all locations once every three years when the rates and rules of operation are reviewed and aligned with utilization levels and to ensure equitable treatment of all areas of the city. The last comprehensive review was undertaken in October 2017. Implementation was completed in late 2018. The next comprehensive review is scheduled for the middle of 2020.

 

 In addition to the comprehensive review, in-year adjustments are undertaken as circumstances warrant. On-street parking is competitively priced with Toronto Parking Authority off-street pricing, where applicable, and to below prices set by private parking operators. On-street parking is almost always the first choice of short-stay (under three hours) parkers.

 

Toronto Parking Authority also operates an extensive inventory of approximately 300 off-street parking facilities containing over 40,000 spaces, however, over one-third of these spaces are managed and operated by Toronto Parking Authority on behalf of other City departments or agencies, including City Real Estate Services, Parks, Forestry and Recreation, the Toronto Transit Commission, Exhibition Place, and the Toronto Community Housing Corporation. While consultation usually occurs, in most of these facilities, the parking fees are set by the department or agency and reflect their policy objectives. In addition, there are 26 locations where garages or surface locations are leased from public or private landowners. The facilities where rates are set by the Toronto Parking Authority Board of Directors are subject to a comprehensive annual rate review. The next comprehensive review is scheduled for November 2019 for implementation in January 2020. Each year, the comprehensive review includes surveys of rates being charged by private parking competitors located in the vicinity of Toronto Parking Authority parking facilities. All of the Toronto Parking Authority's large garages had competitors identified as part of the 2019 rate review.

 

The primary objective of Toronto Parking Authority's rate setting process is to achieve high usage levels in its facilities. Toronto Parking Authority would not normally change rates where usage levels are low or declining. Toronto Parking Authority's service mandate is to serve short-stay, high turnover parkers. These are the customers to the City's businesses. The Toronto Parking Authority only accommodates longer stay parkers where all short-stay parkers have been served and additional space is available in the facility. Toronto Parking Authority's rate setting practices reflect this service mandate by having short-stay rates lower than most competitor rates. There are many other factors which influence parking behaviour and choice of parking location. These include selecting other travel modes, road congestion, and general traffic issues in the vicinity of a given facility and general economic conditions, either local to an area or on a more widespread basis.

 

There was an extensive series of rate adjustments implemented in early 2019 which impacted 93 of  Toronto Parking Authority's approximately 230 off-street locations. This report analyzes the effect that these price changes had in terms of usage levels and parking revenues as well as calculating the price elasticity associated with the changes. In general, with the exception of eight Toronto Parking Authority garages in the core commercial areas, the price adjustments resulted in no change in overall parking transactions in the 93 locations where they were implemented and generated 5.52 percent in additional revenue at these locations. Additional rate change recommendations will be considered by Toronto Parking Authority Board of Directors at their November 25, 2019 meeting. Toronto Parking Authority is projecting a total increase in 2019 revenues across all revenue streams of 2.4 percent for 2019 over 2018. This represents the results of the revenue increases at the car parks referenced in this report as well as car parks where rates were not increased and performance of the on-street metered parking program. There is also a brief description of the 2019 competitor rate analysis which is currently underway. Overall, private sector competitors were identified for the car parks in the core commercial areas, including the downtown, the midtown centers, and North York Centre. Results indicate that, as per Toronto Parking Authority policy, half-hour rates at Toronto Parking Authority locations are in most cases lower than the private sector while daily rates tend to be at, or near, the level of competitors.
