1e Development Application Review Fees - 2012 Operating Budget
Origin
(November 25, 2011) Report from the Deputy City Manager Cluster B
Summary

The purpose of this report is to summarize the results of the detailed review of development application costs and recommend a strategy to recover the City's full costs associated with reviewing development applications (Official Plan Amendment, Zoning By-law Amendment, Site Plan, Condominium etc).  The City's current costs for providing this particular service include a portion of City Planning's, and Legal Services costs.  However, other divisions directly involved in processing development applications (Technical Services, Transportation Services, Parks, Forestry and Recreation, Fire Services, Toronto Building, Solid Waste Management, and Toronto Water) do not recover their costs. 

 

The Development Application Review Service provides direct benefits to identifiable beneficiaries and therefore, in accordance with the City's recently adopted User Fee Policy should be fully cost recovered.  The Development Application Review Service represents an example of a user fee service for which the relevant programs have completed a comprehensive full costing model based on the principles of full cost recovery.  Every effort has been made to identify direct, indirect and capital costs associated with providing this service.  However, while the service satisfies the conditions for full cost recovery, only partial costs (approximately 66 percent) are currently being recovered.  This means that in contravention of best practice, property taxes are being used to subsidize a service that should otherwise be recovered from the beneficiaries or user of the service.

2.         That Recommendation No. 3 in the staff report be amended to include the words “and the Provincial Government” after the words “City of Toronto” so such recommendation now reads:

4.         That a report be brought to the next TTC meeting on a comparative cost analysis on operating Wheel-Trans services, including reducing the “service ratio” within TTC Wheel-Trans and the possibility to shift dialysis patients to alternate service providers.

 

5.         That a formal request be made to the Provincial and Federal Governments to increase the subsidy on the Operating and Capital Budgets and this recommendation be forwarded to City of Toronto Council for its endorsement.

 

6.         That the Chief General Manager be requested to review and report back to the December TTC meeting on the role of Metrolinx and the TTC on planning/operating transit responsibilities.

1af Update on the Core Service Review and Service Efficiency Studies
Origin
(January 6, 2012) Report from the City Manager
Summary

This report provides an update on implementation of the Service Review Program for 2012 to 2014 including service adjustments being implemented through the 2012 and future years' budget process as a result of Council's decisions on the Core Service Review and the status of the 119 additional efficiency measures identified during the process.  Many of the additional efficiency measures have been captured in the 2012 operating budget process while others will be considered for future years' savings or included in longer term studies.  Appendix A summarizes the status of all of these activities.

 

The Statements of Work (SOW) and full final reports prepared by external firms for completed Service Efficiency Studies are available on the City's Service Review website at http://www.toronto.ca/torontoservicereview/efficiencystudies.htm.

 

These studies provide advice and recommendations to the City Manager and were conducted in consultation with divisions and agencies. They identify actions and directions which could result in more efficient and effective service delivery, organizational and operational arrangements and associated savings.

 

The City Manager will work closely with divisional and agency senior management to determine which of the actions are feasible and can be implemented, the timeframe and methods of implementation and the estimated cost savings.  Appendix B provides a summary of recommendations from the eight studies completed to date.

1ag Comprehensive User Fee Review
Origin
(January 4, 2012) Report from the City Manager and the Deputy City Manager and Chief Financial Officer
Summary

The purpose of this report is to present the findings and recommendations of the Comprehensive User Fee Review.  In response to City Council's request that the City Manager undertake a Comprehensive User Fee Review and to develop a User Fee Policy [the Policy] and Framework, all user fees were examined using a common methodology.  The Policy was adopted by Council at its special meeting of September 26 and 27, 2011.  This report presents general and program-specific findings and recommendations arising from the user fee review.

 

The Comprehensive User Fee Review has examined the City's existing user fees against the principles established in the Policy, and has identified opportunities for improving the effectiveness and efficiency of the City's management of its user fees.  Specifically, the Review has resulted in the categorization of all user fees on the basis of full cost recovery, city policy, provincially-legislated, and market-competitiveness.  These groupings will provide clarity and transparency for the basis on which the fees are established, reviewed, approved and managed,   consistent with the principles established in the User Fee Policy.

 

The fundamental principle of the User Fee Policy adopted by Council is that user fees should be utilized to finance those City services and products that provide a direct benefit to specific users and that user fees should be set to recover the full cost of those products and/or services, unless there is a City policy reason to change the recovery level to a different amount.  While the Review identified user fee services that should be fully cost recovered, it was not possible to affirm the full cost of all user fee services due to time and staff resource constraints.  It is evident, however, that in most cases the full cost of providing user fee services has not been determined given that capital cost and all indirect costs were generally not taken into account in determining the fee amount prior to approval of the  User Fee Policy.  In order to fully comply with the approved principle of full costing as the basis for setting user fees established in the Policy, this report recommends that the full cost of user fee services should be determined in time for the 2013 Budget process.

 

This report includes user fee findings for all City Programs and Agencies, including the Toronto Transit Commission, Toronto Water and Solid Waste Management Services.  Council considered the user fees and incremental revenues for Toronto Water and Solid Waste Management Services at its meeting of November 29, 2011 as part of the 2012 Rate Supported Approval Process. Recommended user fees and incremental revenues for other City Agencies and Programs will be before Council for consideration January 17 through 19, 2012.

1aj Budget Committee Request: Option to Offset Service Reductions to Programming at Community Centres and Student Nutrition Program as a Result of Final 2012 Assessment Growth
Origin
(January 3, 2012) Report from the City Manager and the Deputy City Manager and Chief Financial Officer
Summary

The purpose of this report is to respond to Budget Committee's request to eliminate $2.1 million in service adjustments to programming at 12 Community Centres and; $0.4 million in service adjustments to 58 Student Nutrition Programs from schools across the City. 

 

These adjustments can be accommodated through the use of permanent sustainable additional revenues identified following an analysis of assessment data provided by the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) in December 2011.  This analysis has determined that assessment growth that occurred in 2011 on taxable properties will be $50.6 million in municipal taxation revenues for 2012 as compared to $41.8 million included in the 2012 Recommended Operating Budget, an increase of $8.8 million.

Additional City of Toronto Act Reporting Requirements as a Result of Recording of Tangible Capital Assets
Committee Recommendations

The Executive Committee recommends that City Council receive for information the report (December 28, 2011) from the Deputy City Manager and Chief Financial Officer, titled, "Additional City of Toronto Act Reporting Requirements As a Result of Recording of Tangible Capital Assets".

Origin
(December 28, 2011) Report from the Deputy City Manager and Chief Financial Officer
Summary

This report discusses the impact of excluding amortization expenses, post-employment benefits expenses, and Solid Waste landfill closure and post-closure expenses from the 2012 Operating Budget; and requests City Council to adopt the recommendation contained therein in accordance with Provincial requirements.

 

Ontario Regulation 286/09 "Budget Matters – Expenses" requires that the City shall 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 2012 Operating and Capital budgets have been prepared on the modified cash basis and therefore exclude the expenses listed above.
