2017 Property Tax Rates and Related Matters
Mayor's Key Matter and first Item of business on Wednesday, February 15th

Bills 121 and 122 have been submitted on this Item.
Committee Recommendations

The Executive Committee recommends that:

 

1.  In calculating the tax ratios, City Council elect the following:

 

a.  for the purposes of establishing notional tax rates, 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 decreased by 25 percent, in accordance with subsection 2.2(4) of Ontario Regulation 121/07 ("O.Reg. 121/07"); and

 

b.  subject to receiving the necessary regulation, for the purpose of determining the tax revenue that is used to establish the allowable maximum 2017 revenue limit, to adjust the total assessment for property in a property class so that the assessment does not include changes to the tax roll resulting from eligible assessment-related losses (largely from appeals) from prior years, and advise the Ministry of Finance of this election.

 

2.  City Council adopt the 2017 tax ratios shown in Column II for each of the property classes set out below in Column I:

a.  improve the funding formula in order to fully fund the occupancy cost of early learning and child care space in schools directly to the school boards;


b.  ensure the funding formula takes into account the highest cost of building, operating and maintaining spaces for young children;


c.  ensure the funding formula for early learning space is not a per person rate, but a per room rate;

 

d.  ensure the funding formula accounts for the incrementally higher costs of operating before and after school programs in share spaces, and

Summary

2017 - 2026 Capital Budget and Plan

 

This report presents the City of Toronto's 2017 - 2026 Budget Committee (BC) Recommended Tax Supported Capital Budget and Plan and recommends approval of the 2017 Capital Budget and future year cash flow commitments for new projects. The 2017 Budget Committee Recommended Capital Budget totals $3.829 billion (including 2016 carry forward funding of $1.052 million) requiring $769 million in debt funding and future year cash flow commitments of $7.586 billion. Furthermore, this report requests approval of the 2018 - 2026 Capital Plan of $16.118 billion, which will form the basis for developing future capital budgets, in accordance with the City's multi-year financial planning and budgeting policies and practices.

 

The 2017 - 2026 Budget Committee Recommended Tax Supported Capital Budget and Plan provides more funding to meet the City's increasing capital needs for state of good repair, service improvement and growth related projects. The proposed capital budget and plan also stabilizes the state of good repair backlog in many areas, but not all.

 

The 2017 - 2026 Budget Committee Recommended Tax Supported Capital Budget and Plan delivers $5.8 billion in added investment for priority unfunded projects with $3.3 billion in increased debt funding. The $3.3 billion in additional debt room was created through the following actions:

 

-Annual cash flow funding estimates were examined and adjusted to more realistically match cash flow spending to project activities and timing, resulting in $134 million in released debt room, predominately within the first 5 years of the Capital Plan.
 

-Maximizing the City's debt cost ratio over the 10 year planning horizon to an average of 14.75 percent of annual property tax revenue further increased the debt room by $2.2 billion.
 

-Adding $1.0 billion in debt capacity supported from the creation of a City Building Fund, which draws from a special dedicated property tax levy increase of 0.5 percent in 2017 that increases by an additional 0.5 percent in each year from 2018 to 2021.
 

While actions available to the City have been taken to add $5.8 billion in capital investments, the City does not yet have the fiscal capacity to fully achieve its ambitious city-building agenda. Critical state of good repair, service improvement and transportation projects remain unfunded. The net cost of unmet needs are currently estimated at approximately $30 billion over the 15 year planning period, subject to any future federal or provincial partnership funding.

 

To make further advancements on the remaining long-term capital overhand, options for the use of road tolls were proposed, providing a stable, significant revenue source that could be used for transit and transportation priorities.

 

Following consideration of these options on January 24, 2017, Budget Committee recommended that an additional $5.6 billion in available capital funding be included in the 2017 - 2026 Capital Plan based on a $2 toll revenue assumption for roads under the jurisdictional ownership of the City.

 

On January 27, 2017, the Government of Ontario made an announcement that it will not facilitate a regulation under the City of Toronto Act to provide tolling of roads under the jurisdictional ownership of the City; and that the Provincial Gas Tax program rate for municipalities will be doubled over a phased in approach by 2022.

 

While additional Provincial Gas Tax funding is welcomed, this provides a challenging situation for the City whereby the Capital Program can no longer incorporate a stable and significant revenue source in tolling. In addition, Gas Tax sharing is limited by future uncertainties such as possible declining fuel consumption, and changes to future provincial policy. Accordingly, staff cannot recommend using Gas Tax sharing as a revenue stream from which to guarantee future debt leverage and repayments.

 

2017 Operating Budget

 

This report presents the 2017 Budget Committee (BC) Recommended Tax Supported Operating Budget and seeks Council's approval for service spending plans, service budgets and associated service levels, and staffing detailed therein. 

 

The 2017 Budget Committee Recommended Tax Supported Operating Budget is $10.535 billion gross and $3.987 billion net (excluding the Scarborough Subway Extension Special Levy and City Building Fund) or $10.590 billion gross and $4.101 billion net (including the Scarborough Subway Extension Special Levy and City Building Fund). 

 

The City of Toronto's Long-Term Financial Direction report considered by Council in June 2016, among other things, outlined a series of principles and directions to guide the development of new strategies to manage expenses and expand revenues noting that decisions being made in the 2017 Budget process needed to be consistent with the City's long term strategies for fiscal sustainability.  Also, in December 2016, City Council referred a variety of revenue options to Budget Committee for its consideration as part of the 2017 Budget process.  

 

In preparation for the 2017 Budget process, it was assumed that City Council would only consider an inflationary increase of 2 percent for residential property tax.  As a result of this assumption, constraining expenses and considering new revenues measures were explored as part of the 2017 Budget Process. 

 

The 2017 Budget process focused on finding sustainable savings across City Programs and Agencies, in response to a budget reduction target of -2.6 percent below the 2016 Council Approved Net Operating Budget.  City Programs, Agencies and Accountability Offices were directed to explore all services for efficiency saving opportunities, review the impact of vacant positions on service levels delivered, and review service levels and outcomes for relevance, value and impact with a focus on non-public facing services first.

 

Operating budget submissions identified an opening budget pressure of $731 million (from $516 million identified in June 2016) primarily arising from the City's 3 largest Agencies (Toronto Transit Commission, Toronto Community Housing Corporation, and Toronto Police Services), compensation costs, capital and corporate costs and measures that were phased-in from prior years such as the loss of pooling compensation grants for housing and the use of one-time bridging strategies in 2016 which continue to exert pressure in 2017. 

 

A number of budget reduction and revenue balancing strategies were employed to mitigate the opening budget pressure given the inflation-level property tax increase guideline of 2 percent (excluding 0.5 percent property tax levy for the City Building Fund) while maintaining service levels.  On the revenue side, these measures generated $362 million and included:

 

-Increasing the Municipal Land Transfer Tax (MLTT) revenue to 2016 levels;
-Maximizing all user fees, including a transit fare increase;
-Benefiting from the upload of social services and court security costs to the Province; and
-Realizing moderate assessment growth, and assuming a 2 percent residential tax rate increase.

 

These actions combined $177 million in additional base budget reductions, efficiency savings and service adjustments as well as $100 million in the use of bridging strategies primarily recommended by City Agencies, resulted in a 2017 Preliminary Operating Budget that left a residual budget pressure or gap of $90.570 million.  Only new and enhanced service investments which are funded from within existing budgets, have a net zero funding impact, or generate additional revenues were included in the 2017 Preliminary Operating Budget.

 

City Programs largely achieved the reduction target which helped reduce the remaining pressures being driven by Toronto Transit Commission and Toronto Community Housing Corporation.  The Toronto Police Service minimized its pressure, resulting a 2017 Operating Budget that is 0.2 percent increase over its 2016 Net Operating Budget.
 

A series of revenue measures were considered by Budget Committee with several incorporated into the 2017 Budget Committee Recommended Tax Supported Operating Budget. Budget Committee recommended significant changes to the 2017 Preliminary Operating Budget to achieve a balanced budget as follows:

 

-Reversal of certain Service Adjustments and a new User Fee proposal included in the 2017 Preliminary Operating Budget ($5.203 million net);
-Reduction in Bridging Strategies ($6.752 million net);
-Additional Service Changes ($2.284 million net);
-Additional New and / or Enhanced Services Priorities ($20.260 million net); and
-Increase revenues ($107.7 million net and base expenditure adjustments ($12.8 million net).

 

The 2017 Budget Committee Recommended Tax Supported Operating Budget keeps the costs of City services affordable with a residential tax rate increase of 2 percent, an inflation-level increase.  However, the 2017 Budget Committee Tax Supported Operating Budget continues to contain fiscal risks including the following:

 

-Increased dependence on the Municipal Land Transfer Tax (growth from $532 million in 2016 to $716 million in 2017),
-Escalating expense pressures from City Agencies namely Toronto Community Housing Corporation and Toronto Transit Commission, and
-One-time bridging strategies included within the 2017 Operating Budget of $87.8 million that will result in an operating budget pressure in 2018. 
 

2018 and 2019 Plan

 

The projected pressure for the 2018 and 2019 Plan is $370 million (net) and $81 million (net) respectively. The Plans assumes inflationary increases for residential property taxes (2 percent), moderate assessment growth, and no growth in Municipal Land Transfer Tax (MLTT).  The expenditure pressures are primarily driven by:

 

-Agency expenses predominantly Toronto Community Housing Corporation (TCHC) and Toronto Transit Commission (TTC);
-Reversal of one-time bridging strategies used to balance 2017 Operating Budget;
-Inflationary compensation and contract to provide 2017 services and service levels; and
-Annualization of costs for 2017 recommended new and enhanced service investments. 
 

While expenditure management will continue to play a vital role in addressing future budget pressures, these strategies alone will not solve the City's financial challenges.  Further revenue measures are required to increase stable revenue sources through policy change (e.g. raise existing revenue sources or implement new revenue options).  As many of these new revenues measures have been utilized, there will a continued reliance on existing revenue sources.  In addition, the City's reliance and exposure to the Municipal Land Transfer Tax will need to be closely monitored.

2l Housing and Health: Unlocking Opportunity
Origin
(November 9, 2016) Letter from City Council
Summary

City Council on November 8 and 9, 2016, referred item HL15.3 to the Budget Committee for consideration during the 2017 Budget process.

 

Affordable, good quality, and stable housing is important for health and overall well-being and for building healthy and inclusive communities. The increasing unaffordability of housing in Toronto is a significant public health concern given the many connections between housing and health. Research and lived experience in Toronto demonstrate that housing unaffordability, poor quality housing and neighbourhoods, and housing instability, including homelessness, are associated with a range of poor mental and physical health outcomes, risk factors for poor health, health care non-adherence and follow-up, and are significant costs to the health care system.

 

Housing is a key priority for all three levels of government, making it an opportune time to consider health and health equity as explicit goals in housing policy. To promote the health of Torontonians and reduce health inequities, new policies and program interventions are needed that: increase the supply and support the repair and maintenance of affordable, supportive, and accessible housing; provide adequate income, financial assistance and quality employment so people are not forced to make difficult choices between paying rent, food, utilities and other basic elements of a healthy life; tackle discrimination within the housing system; and prevent homelessness in a child's early years through investments in mental health supports and violence prevention.

 

Given the key role of social and economic factors  in contributing to the affordability, quality, and stability of people's living environment, it is critical to address the upstream causes of homelessness and housing instability in housing policy as well as related public policy areas such as income security, employment, and health care policy.

2r 2016 Voting Results and Funding Allocations for Participatory Budgeting Pilot
Origin
(December 19, 2016) Report from the City Manager
Summary

2016 is the second year of a three-year Participatory Budgeting Pilot Project.  This pilot project is being evaluated in three neighbourhoods: Oakridge (Ward 35), Rustic (Ward 12), and across all of Ward 33.  In the pilot, residents propose, develop and vote on local community improvement projects. Each community has up to $250,000 to spend on capital projects on City-owned property.  This year's votes concluded in December and residents from these three neighbourhoods selected a total of 16 community projects at a total cost of $730,000.

 

This report authorizes the Deputy City Manager and Chief Financial Officer to fund the cost of these community improvements in the amount of $545,000 gross, $0 debt from the Parkland Acquisition Reserve Fund, and $185,000 gross, $0 debt from the Public Realm Reserve Fund.

 

City staff will continue to carry out the pilot project through 2017 and will report to City Council in 2018 with a comprehensive evaluation and recommendations for future participatory budgeting in Toronto.

2u Toronto International Trade Funding Report
Origin
(January 6, 2017) Report from the General Manager, Economic Development and Culture and the City Clerk
Summary

An important approach in growing a city’s economy is establishing and maintaining strong international city-to-city and city-to-region ties that foster export and trade opportunities for small and medium-sized enterprises (SME). Expanding Toronto's international trade to boost job creation and economic growth will leverage and enhance Toronto’s trade performance and international presence in the global marketplace. The strategic direction to undertake and implement the trade activities was provided to the Economic Development and Culture Division (EDC) when the Collaborating for Competitiveness economic development strategy was endorsed by City Council in 2013.

 

This report outlines the funding requirements and funding source in order to expand international trade by Toronto-based companies. The funding will ensure that the City is working to its fullest potential in the areas of individual company export development, outbound trade missions, leveraging in-bound international delegations, hosting international conferences and reverse trade missions, enhancing the City's International Alliance Program and improved intelligence gathering and market research.

 

This report further recommends that the City enter into an international trade development partnership with the World Trade Centre-Toronto, a subsidiary of the Toronto Region Board of Trade, to best help implement the trade support activities outlined in this report.

 

This report recommends that Council approve an increase of $1.4 million gross, $0 net, to the 2017 Preliminary Operating Budget for EDC, fully funded by Toronto Port Lands Company (TPLC) dividends through an interdivisional charge to the non-program budget. This funding from TPLC was formerly provided to Invest Toronto and is no longer needed by Invest Toronto due to the formation of Toronto Global.

 

Export support activities in the City have been very limited to date. The goals of the added funding are to significantly increase the number of Toronto based SMEs that export by 1,200 to 2,000 companies; increase the value of Toronto exports by $1 - 2 billion; and to generate an additional 10,000 to 20,000 new jobs in the City; and all within five years. The added funding will also increase very significantly the visibility of the City of Toronto globally and the effectiveness of the City's global relations which will further enhance trade prospects (city to city contacts, Toronto's overseas Canadian and Provincial government office relationships and much more active bi-lateral business association connections).

2v TransformTO Short-term Strategies Financial Estimates
Origin
(January 9, 2017) Report from the Chief Corporate Officer
Summary

This report responds to City Council's request for the TransformTO Short-term Strategies Business Cases to be considered as part of the 2017 Budget Process.  Attachment A contains a package of business cases developed by City staff, as well as high-level cost estimates for 2017-2020.

 

TransformTO: Climate Action for a Healthy, Equitable and Prosperous Toronto - Report #1 (Item PE15.1) presented a package of Short-term Strategies to accelerate and enhance existing City of Toronto efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The Strategies could deliver additional emissions reduction of up to 857,000 tonnes by 2020 to move Toronto towards the trajectory needed for City Council's long term low-carbon goal (i.e. 80 percent emission reduction by 2050).

 

Staff recommended (PE15.1) that business cases for the Short-term Strategies be brought forward through the 2018 budget process. This report provides financial estimates to inform City Council of the resource requirements to support an accelerated work plan.

 

To accelerate the initiation of the strategies in 2017 an estimated $1.6 million in funding would be required in 2017. The total estimated community-wide capital investment required over four years ranges from $320 million for the low greenhouse gas reduction scenario to $866 million for the high greenhouse gas reduction scenario. The total estimated community-wide operating investment to support implementation over four years is approximately $23.8 million.

 

In May 2017, City Council will consider the second TransformTO report. It will outline a set of long-term directions identifying transformational changes to Toronto's core urban systems required to achieve the long-term goal by 2050.

2w Toronto and Region Conservation Authority - Long Term Accommodation Plan
Origin
(January 9, 2017) Report from the Deputy City Manager and Chief Financial Officer
Summary

This report recommends City Council's formal support of the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA) for its plan to construct a new administrative office building on land it owns in the City of Toronto.

 

The Toronto and Region Conservation Authority examined its long term accommodation needs and employed a business case analysis to examine the relative costs, benefits and risks associated with various build, buy or lease of office space scenarios. The analysis determined that the option to build on its own land is the most cost effective solution.

 

The City of Toronto, along with the Regions of York, Peel and Durham, Town of Mono and the Township of Adjala-Tosorontio provide a pro-rata share of funding within the authority's watershed jurisdiction based on the current assessment values of properties within the watershed. To date, York, Peel, Town of Mono and the Township of Adjala-Tosorontio have approved their respective shares.

Origin
(January 6, 2017) Report from the Deputy City Manager, Cluster B, the Deputy City Manager and Chief Financial Officer, the Deputy City Manager, Cluster A and the Interim City Solicitor
Summary

As directed by City Council, this report is being submitted concurrently to Budget Committee for consideration as part of the 2017 Budget Process and to Planning and Growth Management Committee. At its meeting of December 13, 14 and 15, 2016, City Council directed the Deputy City Manager, Cluster B, in consultation with the Chief Planner and Executive Director, City Planning and the City Solicitor to report to the Budget Committee through the 2017 Budget Process and concurrently to the Planning and Growth Management Committee at its January 11, 2017 meeting with an analysis, on a Division by Division basis, of additional staffing resources required to meet each Division's Key Performance Indicators, Planning Act timelines and current and anticipated application volumes, and that the report include options that may be required to cover the cost of any additional staff resources to meet those timelines, volumes and Key Performance Indicators including potential impact on the tax base and the Development Application Review Fees.

 

In response to City Council's direction, this report recommends adding 9.0 new City Planning staff on a temporary two year basis to address the service issues outlined in this report. This report also recommends that 5.0 additional staff be added to Legal Services and 3.0 additional staff be added to Parks, Forestry and Recreation, all on a temporary two year basis. These temporary positions would be funded through a draw from the City Planning Development Application Review Reserve Fund that receives contributions in years that Planning Application revenue surpluses arise.

 

The 17.0 new temporary positions recommended in this report will be in addition to 17.0 new permanent positions added as part of the 2017 Preliminary Operating Budget to support the development application review within City Planning (1.0 position); Toronto Building (12.0 positions); and Legal Services (4.0 positions).

 

This report was prepared in consultation with all Divisions involved in the development application review process. Legal Services and Parks, Forestry and Recreation input has been included in the report.

2ab Recommended Approach to Single Family Solid Waste Rebates 2017-2023
Origin
(January 16, 2017) Report from the General Manager, Solid Waste Management Services and the Deputy City Manager and Chief Financial Officer
Summary

This report recommends that City Council adopt a plan to progressively phase out, over seven years beginning in 2017, the rebates on every Single Family curbside collection garbage bin. This move is recommended to continue the transition of Solid Waste Management Services (SWMS) to a sustainable utility where the net fees paid by Single Family customers reflect the actual cost of service delivery.

 

City Council approved reductions in the Single Family Solid Waste Rebates for 2015 and 2016, recovering $17.7 million and $9.7 million, respectively, for City of Toronto Tax-Supported Budget. Continuing the series of rebate reductions towards ultimate complete elimination of all Single Family Solid Waste Rebates by 2023 establishes a transparent and certain approach towards revenue recovery for City of Toronto general revenues between 2017 and 2023.

2ac City Funding Request for Regent Park Phase 3 - Rental Blocks 16 North and 17 North
Origin
(January 17, 2017) Report from the Deputy City Manager and Chief Financial Officer and the Deputy City Manager, Cluster A
Summary

Toronto City Council first approved Toronto Community Housing Corporation's (TCHC) plan for the revitalization of Regent Park at its meeting in July 2003.  This large scale initiative envisioned the replacement of over 2,000 ageing social housing units together with a mix of approximately 2,800 market units as a catalyst for the transformation of the neighbourhood and social inclusion.  This revitalization would be staged over many years and phases.

 

The original business model for social housing revitalization was premised on developing market housing alongside social housing creating a mixed use community.  Proceeds from sales of market housing, together with operating and capital maintenance savings and City contributions towards infrastructure, were expected to fund the revitalization in large part.

 

After substantial completion of the first two phases, the funding model has fallen short of its initial projections.  According to Toronto Community Housing Corporation, delays in timing of sales of market housing resulted in delays in the social housing redevelopment.  Additional unexpected costs have arisen and costs in general have also increased.  Toronto Community Housing Corporation now requires additional funding from the City to take on more debt to complete the next phases of the revitalization project and return relocated tenants in a timely manner. 

 

Blocks 16 North and 17 North are a component of Phase 3, consisting of 181 and 158 replacement units, respectively.  According to Toronto Community Housing Corporation, the unfunded costs for these projects are $55.4 million and $42.4 million, respectively, and a further $9.9 million is required to complete the municipal infrastructure and site servicing requirements ($107.7 million in total). 

 

This report responds to a resolution of Toronto Community Housing Corporation's Board of Directors that development of these projects be contingent on TCHC obtaining debt financing paid for by the City (or other levels of government).  By agreeing to this request, City Council will be committing to $107.7 million capital project with $101.7 million in new indebtedness.  A capital contribution of $6 million will be required in 2017, and payments of $6 million annually thereafter for 30 years to repay the debt financing for these projects.

2ad Municipal Licensing and Standards Budget Update - Rental Apartment Buildings Program
Origin
(January 12, 2017) Report from the Executive Director, Municipal Licensing and Standards
Summary

This report provides information on a revised program budget arising from City Council's decision on item LS15.3 at its meeting on December 13, 14 and 15, 2016. This report outlines the difference between what City Council approved and the 2017 Preliminary Operating Budget currently being considered by Budget Committee.

 

Item LS15.3, Rental Apartment Buildings: Results of Public Consultation and Proposed Regulatory Regime outlines a new regulatory by-law for rental apartment buildings that requires property owners to register their residential apartment building(s) with the City of Toronto, submit required information, have plans and processes in place for inspection, and pay all applicable fees. City Council directed that the total program budget of $5,181,500, be funded as follows: 53 percent from a $10.60/unit/annum registration fee ($2,767,139); 12 percent from revenues resulting from audit and enforcement activities ($637,200); and the remaining 35 percent remain on the tax base ($1,777,161). This direction increased the preliminary program budget by adding six (6) Full-Time Equivalent (FTE) staff.

 

Municipal Licensing and Standards will provide public notice and report to the March 6, 2017 meeting of Licensing and Standards Committee on: the new regulatory by-law for rental apartment buildings; and the applicable amendments to Chapter 441, Fees for the new registration fee and new audit and enforcement activity fees for City Council approval.

2af Net Income Sharing Agreement Renewal with the Toronto Parking Authority
Origin
(January 19, 2017) Report from the Deputy City Manager and Chief Financial Officer, and the President of the Toronto Parking Authority
Summary

The purpose of this report is to update the net income sharing agreement between the City of Toronto (City) and the Toronto Parking Authority (TPA or Authority) for net income generated from off-street and on-street parking operations and net gains on the sale of air rights for City properties managed by the Authority.  The current net income sharing agreement with the Toronto Parking Authority expired on December 31, 2015, with Council approving an extension until such time as Council considers an updated Income Sharing Agreement.

 

This report recommends that the net income sharing formula from the previous agreement be changed to increase the Toronto Parking Authority's contribution to 85 percent of its net income for the year from on-street and off-street parking operations to the City.  This reflects an increase from the current Agreement that directs 75 percent of the Toronto Parking Authority's net operating proceeds to the City.

 

The minimum payment to the City will increase from $37.0 million to $38.0 million, subject to unforeseen circumstances which may result from the interruption of service, any other unplanned occurrence or Council decision, which may have an adverse and material effect on the net income as defined under the Income Sharing Agreement.

 

Under the revised Agreement, the City will also receive 85 percent of the net gain on the sale of air rights for properties managed by the Authority less, if necessary, the amount by which the cost of replacement facilities (new and expanded parking spaces and/or commercial space) exceeds the 15 percent portion retained by the Toronto Parking Authority.

 

In addition, it is recommended that City staff prepare an income sharing agreement between the Toronto Parking Authority and the City of Toronto. The income Sharing Agreement Renewal with the Toronto Parking Authority will take effect as of January 1, 2017 for a three year period ending December 31, 2019.

2ag Revisions to Payment-in-Lieu of Parking Policies to Permit Funding of Transit and Cycling Capital Improvements
Origin
(January 19, 2017) Report from the Deputy City Manager, Cluster B, the Deputy City Manager and Chief Financial Officer and the Interim City Solicitor, Legal Services
Summary

This report responds to Council's request of December, 2016 that staff report on options  to establish a cash payment-in-lieu of parking policy for new residential developments which do not meet the City's parking standards, with the funds to be held in a reserve account dedicated to funding transit and cycling capital improvements.

 

Section 40 of the Planning Act provides the legislative authority for the City to enter into an agreement with the owner or occupant of a building, exempting the owner or the occupant from the requirement of providing or maintaining parking in exchange for the payment of money.  The money must be paid into a special account and the money in that account shall be applied for the same purposes as a reserve fund established under the City of Toronto Act (COTA) or Municipal Act, 2001.  Neither section 40, nor any relevant provisions of the City of Toronto Act and Municipal Act, specify how this account or reserve fund should be spent.  Rather, the City's current practice is established under the Toronto Municipal Code and related policies.

 

In July 2004, Council approved a Payment-in-Lieu of Parking Policy for funds collected under Section 40 of the Planning Act, which provided that payments received by the municipality would be placed in the City Parking Payment-in-lieu Reserve Fund (XR1016) administered by the Toronto Parking Authority exclusively for the acquisition, development and improvement of municipal parking facilities.  The policy outlines the process of an application for payment in lieu of parking and specifies a fee schedule.  Currently, the Payment-in-Lieu policy is applied only to new non-residential developments.


The development of options for City Council to establish a revised cash payment-in-lieu of parking policy that would now apply to new residential developments which do not meet the City's parking standards, requires further consideration of the legislative authority to amend the Payment-in-Lieu of Parking Policy such that the funds collected from these payments could be redirected towards transit and cycling priorities.  In addition, prior to being able to provide viable options to change the existing policy, a policy framework will need to be developed which takes into consideration issues including: implementing fees and/or formulas; the administration of the fund; and where the reserve fund can be utilized.

This report discusses the impact of excluding amortization expenses, post-employment benefits expenses, and Solid Waste landfill closure and post-closure expenses from the 2017 Operating Budget.

 

Ontario Regulation 286/09 "Budget Matters – Expenses" requires that the City prepare a report, prior to adoption of its budget, detailing amortization, post-employment benefits and landfill closure and post-closure expenses, if excluded from the budget. It also requires that the City adopt the report by resolution.

 

Consistent with prior years, the City's 2017 Operating and Capital budgets have been prepared on the modified cash basis and therefore exclude the expenses listed above.
