(February 4, 2020) Letter from the Budget Committee
Recommendations

The Budget Committee recommends that:

 

1.  In respect of calculations to establish 2020 tax rates and tax ratios, City Council elect the following in order to determine the notional tax rates to raise the previous year's levies:

 

a.  subject to receiving the necessary amendment to Ontario Regulation 121/07 for the 2020 taxation year, to exclude the assessment of a property in a property class from the calculation of the total assessment of the properties in that property class if the current value of the property has increased by 100 percent or more or decreased by 25 percent or more, in accordance with subsection 2.2(4), paragraph 2 of Ontario Regulation 121/07 ("Ontario Regulation 121/07"); and

 

b.  to adjust the total assessment for property in a property class so that the assessment excludes changes to the tax roll for the previous year resulting from eligible assessment-related losses from prior years, in accordance with an election under subsection 19 (4) of Ontario Regulation 121/07 to make subsections 19 (4.2), (4.3) and (4.4) apply.

1a Property Tax Capping Policies for 2020
Origin
(February 5, 2020) Report from the Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer
Recommendations

The Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer recommends that:

 

1. City Council adopt the following property tax capping policies for the 2020 taxation year:

 

a.  limit tax increases for the commercial, industrial, and multi-residential property classes by capping taxes at 10 percent of the preceding year’s annualized taxes, by opting to have subsection 292(1), paragraph 1, of the City of Toronto Act, 2006, apply for the 2020 taxation year;

 

b.  continue to provide that the 10 percent cap on tax increases apply to any property within the commercial, industrial and multi-residential classes, regardless of whether the property had reached full Current Value Assessment taxation levels in a prior year, subject to the threshold adopted in Part c. below.

 

c.  for the purposes of subsection 292(1), paragraphs 3 and 4 of the City of Toronto Act, 2006, adopt a threshold limit of $500 to determine the taxes for municipal and school purposes, such that properties that are within $500 (plus or minus) of their full Current Value Assessment level of taxation in the current year are taxed at full Current Value Assessment taxation levels for the year, and are therefore excluded from capping/claw-back provisions for that year.

Summary

This is a supplementary report to Item BU14.1: 2020 Property Tax Rates and Related Matters and recommends the 2020 policies for property tax capping protection for business properties.

 

Specifically, this report recommends to continue the tax capping policy of limiting tax increase to 10 percent of a property's prior year's taxes to any property in the commercial, industrial and multi-residential tax classes in 2020. 

 

In addition, in order to ensure that progress continues to be made in moving properties to their full Current Value Assessment level of taxation, it is recommended that Council adopt a policy that properties that are within $500 (plus or minus) of their full Current Value Assessment level of taxation in the current year are excluded from capping/claw-back provisions for that year, and be taxed at full Current Value Assessment.

Financial Impact

There is no financial implication to the City of Toronto's budget arising from the capping policy changes recommended in this report.  Under the capping and claw-back system, the foregone revenue resulting from the capping limit on Current Value Assessment-related tax increases for properties in the commercial, industrial and multi-residential property tax classes is funded by withholding (clawing-back) a portion of the tax decreases that would otherwise be applied to other properties within each class.

The post-workshop event in Toronto will be an invitational event to apply the findings from the first workshop and develop a set of specific intervention and evaluation of activities.

 

This work will advance the mandates of both Toronto Public Health and Transportation Services as well as key initiatives such as the Vision Zero 2.0 Plan and the Complete Streets Guidelines.

Financial Impact

Toronto Police Service – 2020 Operating Budget

 

The Toronto Police Service (Service) 2020 operating budget request is $1,076.2 Million ($1,221.2 Million gross), which is $40.8 Million or 3.9 percent above the 2019 approved budget.  A full 2.8 percent ($28.9 Million) of the 3.9 percent is related entirely to the impact of applying the collective agreements with the Toronto Police Association and Senior Officers’ Organization.  An additional 0.1 percent ($0.8 Million) is for other base budget pressures. The remaining 1 percent ($11.1 Million) will fund new and enhanced initiatives that align with the need to respond to critical community safety priorities, modernize the Service to deliver policing services in the most efficient and effective manner, and invest in initiatives that will improve public trust and accountability.

 

This request includes funds for new and enhanced initiatives, including:

 

- The hiring of 341 uniform officers to enable the addition of 140 net new uniform officers to be deployed to Priority Response Units across the city, eight net new traffic officers to focus on Vision Zero enforcement priorities, 40 net new Neighbourhood Community Officers to be deployed to up to 10 additional city neighbourhoods, and officers to backfill those that retire or separate from the Service,

 

- Five net new positions in the Service’s Equity, Inclusion and Human Rights Unit, and


- Implementation of a Body Worn Camera Program.
 

Table 1 and Table 2 below provides a breakdown of the request between the base budget and new and enhanced.

(See Table 2 titled "- Summary of 2020 New and Enhanced Budget Request by Category",

in the Financial Impact section of the letter dated

December 18, 2019 from the Toronto Police Services Board)

 

Note: As a part of the City’s plan to modernize the budget process, a policy change has been made that requires the removal of interdepartmental charges and recoveries from the 2020 operating budget request and the restatement of the 2019 approved budget.  An interdepartmental charge or recovery is a payment made from one Agency or Department in the City to another for the delivery of goods or services. This change is intended to simplify the process by removing the payments from one City area to another, which ultimately is paid for by the same taxpayer.  As a result of this policy change, the Service’s 2019 approved budget is restated from $1,051.5 Million to $1,035.4 Million.   Hereafter, any reference to the 2019 operating budget will be made using the 2019 restated figure.

 

Toronto Police Service 2020 to 2029 Capital Program

 

Capital Program requirements are funded from various sources, specifically:

 

- debt issued by the City of Toronto (City);


- the Vehicle and  Equipment Reserve, which is funded from the Service’s operating budget;


- Development Charges which are fees charged to developers to help pay for the cost of infrastructure required to provide municipal services in growing areas to qualifying Service projects – using Development Charges reduces the Service’s reliance on debt funding; and,

 

- other source of funding such as Provincial grants.

 

Unlike previous years, the City did not issue a debt targets for the 2020 – 2029 Capital Program. Instead, consideration and approval of projects in the Capital Program will be based on need and value provided, project readiness and previous year’s spending rate.

 

Table 1 below provides a summary of the Service’s 2020-2029 Capital Program request.  Additional details can be found in Attachment A, contained within Appendix A.

(See Table 1 titled "- Summary of the 2020-2029 Capital Program Request (000’s)",

in the Financial Impact section of the letter dated

December 18, 2019 from the Toronto Police Services Board)

 

*Development charges applied to Vehicle and Equipment Reserve reduced the required funding in that category

 

Toronto Police Service 2020 Parking Enforcement Unit Operating Budget

 

The Parking Enforcement Unit’s 2020 net operating budget request is $49.2 Million net ($50.8 Million gross) which is a $1.9 Million or 4.1 percent increase over 2019 net operating budget.

 

As a part of the City of Toronto’s (City) plan to modernize the budget process, a policy change has been made that requires the removal of interdepartmental charges and recoveries from the 2020 operating budget request and the restatement of the 2019 approved budget.  An interdepartmental charge or recovery is a payment made from one Agency or Department in the City to another for the delivery of goods or services. This change is intended to simplify the process by removing the payments from one City area to another, which ultimately is paid for by the same taxpayer.  As a result of this policy change, the Toronto Police Service - Parking Enforcement Unit 2019 approved budget is restated from $47.6 Million to $47.3 Million.  Hereafter, any reference to the 2019-operating budget will be made using the 2019 restated figure.

 

Toronto Police Services Board 2020 Operating Budget

 

The proposed 2020 net operating budget of $1,930,400, recommended in this report, represents an increase of 1.4 percent over a 2019 adjusted budget of $1,903,700.

 

The proposed increase of 1.4 percent is related entirely to the application to Excluded Board Staff of the settlement reached between the Board and the Senior Officers’ Organization. 

 

In order to absorb the annualized costs of the two new positions approved by the Board in 2019, the 2020 proposed budget includes a decrease to the Legal Reserve contribution of $104,200.  Based on the pattern in spending for independent legal advice, this decrease is likely sustainable. 

 

As a part of the City’s plan to modernize the budget process, a policy change has been made that requires the removal of interdepartmental costs and revenues from the 2020 operating budget request and the restatement of the 2019 approved budget.    An interdepartmental cost or revenue is a payment made from one Agency or Department in the City to another for the delivery of goods or services. This change is intended to simplify the process by removing the payments from one City area to another, which ultimately is paid for by the same taxpayer.  As a result of this policy change, the Board’s 2019 approved budget is restated from $2,484,400 to $1,903,700.   Hereafter, any reference to the 2019 operating budget will be made using the 2019 restated figure.

2s Establishment of 2020 Operating Budget for the Human Services Integration Office
Origin
(January 31, 2020) Report from the Deputy City Manager, Community and Social Services
Recommendations

The Deputy City Manager, Community and Social Services recommends that:

 

1.  City Council amend the 2020 Staff Recommended Operating Budget of Social Development, Finance and Administration by $8.794 million gross, $4.767 million net, and 87 positions to establish the Human Services Integration Office as a separate service by transferring funding of:

 

a.  $0.477 million gross, $0.239 million net and 5 positions from the 2020 Staff Recommended Operating Budget for Children's Services;

 

b.  $0.739 million gross and net and 8 positions from the Staff Recommended 2020 Operating Budget for Shelter, Support and Housing Administration; and

 

c.  $7.578 million gross, $3.789 million net and 74 positions from the Staff Recommended 2020 Operating Budget for Toronto Employment and Social Services.

Summary

The Human Services Integration project is a multi-year initiative focussed on improving the client experience for income support recipients by integrating and simplifying access to and delivery of the City's three main income support programs - social assistance (Ontario Works), Child Care Fee subsidies and Rent Geared to Income and other housing benefits.

 

The Human Services Integration unit will integrate services channels and realign current business processes across Divisions to provide an improved customer experience. Clients will be able to apply for, receive information on, and update their applications for all three income support programs in a single interaction.

 

To date the project has: developed and launched an integrated website and service and benefits finder tool; created a consolidated phone line which merged 67 individual numbers into one line for clients and residents to call; developed a knowledge base which supports staff in accessing up to date information across the three income support programs, and; launched a consolidated Application and Support Centre for the three income support programs which is supported by a new enterprise-wide Customer Relationship Management System which supports a single client profile.

 

A new service is required to support this initiative and to deliver the next phase of the Human Services Integration project. The new service will be created within Community and Social Services by transferring gross expenditures and revenues currently residing in the Operating Budgets of Toronto Employment and Social Services, Children's Services and Shelter, Support and Housing Administration to Social Development, Finance and Administration to support a new Human Services Integration Office Service.

 

The integration of Human Services supports the City's approved Poverty Reduction Strategy and 2019 - 2022 Action Plan, particularly by providing enhanced access to services. It also aligns with the City's goal of transforming the customer experience, modernizing systems and services, and creating more efficient ways of doing business.

Financial Impact

There is no operating impact in 2020, as funding for this programming exists within the Staff Recommended Budgets of each of the partner Divisions, with the recommendation that a new Human Services Integration Office be established as a new service included in the 2020 Staff Recommended Operating Budget for Social Development Finance and Administration. The following table outlines the recommended budget transfers:

ACTION 

 

 

Ward: All 

Additional City of Toronto Reporting Requirement as a Result of Ontario Regulation 286/09, Budget Matters - Expenses
Origin
(February 4, 2020) Letter from the Budget Committee
Recommendations

The Budget Committee recommends that:

 

1.  City Council receive this report for information.

Summary

At its meeting of February 4, 2020, the Budget Committee adopted Item BU16.3 headed "Additional City of Toronto Reporting Requirement as a Result of Ontario Regulation 286/09, Budget Matters - Expenses" and made recommendations to the Executive Committee.

 

Ontario Regulation 286/09 "Budget Matters - Expenses" (Regulation) allows the City of Toronto (City) to exclude amortization expense, post-employment benefit expenses and solid waste landfill closure and post-closure expenses when preparing its annual budget.  However, the Regulation requires that the City prepare a report which includes at a minimum, an estimate of the change in accumulated surplus resulting from the exclusion of the noted expenses from the budget, and an analysis of the impact of the exclusion on future capital asset funding requirements.  The Regulation requires that this report be adopted by City Council (Council) prior to the adoption of its annual budget.

 

This report discusses the impact of excluding amortization expense, post-employment benefit expenses and solid waste landfill closure and post-closure expenses from the City's budget, along with the impact of the differences between how the City treats the purchase of tangible capital assets, debt principal repayments, Government Business Enterprise earnings, and expenses arising from contaminated site liabilities for budgeting and financial reporting purposes.  The items treated differently for accounting versus budget purposes, beyond those identified in the Regulation, are included to reflect the complete impact on estimated accumulated surplus for 2020.
