Opening Doors to Stable Housing: An Effective Waiting List and Reduced Vacancy Rates Will Help More People Access Housing
City Council Decision

City Council on July 16, 17 and 18, 2019 adopted the following:

 

1. City Council request the General Manager, Shelter, Support and Housing Administration to design and implement procedures to ensure compliance with the legislated requirement to review eligibility of applicants on the centralized waiting list for rent-geared-to-income at least once every 24 months after they have been added to the list; such procedures to ensure:

 

a. applicants are advised of the need to maintain contact with the Access to Housing business unit at least once in every 24-month period to ensure their information is kept up-to-date and to re-affirm continued eligibility for rent-geared-to-income assistance;

 

b. all attempts to contact each applicant are sufficiently tracked so that Access to Housing can identify all applications that should be changed to inactive status and subsequently cancelled; and

 

c. action is taken to make applications inactive and to cancel applications, if there is no response to outreach attempts by City staff in accordance with policies and procedures.

 

2. City Council request the General Manager, Shelter, Support and Housing Administration to review the applicants on the centralized waiting list for rent-geared-to-income and develop meaningful categories to support the effective management, including accurate reporting of the number of active and eligible applicants.

a. develop clear guidelines for housing providers on the circumstances under which an offer for rent-geared-to-income housing can be withdrawn and not be considered a refusal. Such guidelines to also clearly indicate how to record the reasons for withdrawals or refusals in the centralized waiting list information system; and

 

b. implement monitoring procedures to ensure housing providers are not recording refusals of offers as withdrawals such that households can circumvent the Housing Services Act's limit on the number of refusals allowed before the applicant is removed from the centralized waiting list.

 

4. City Council request the General Manager, Shelter, Support and Housing Administration to recommend to the Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing to consider revising the Housing Services Act, 2011 to be aligned with the Long Term Care Homes Act regarding refusals of pre-selected housing choices and to only accommodate refusals under clearly defined set of exceptional circumstances.

 

5. City Council request the General Manager, Shelter, Support and Housing Administration to ensure that applicants on the centralized waiting list for rent-geared-to-income understand the importance of choosing only those buildings they are willing to move into and the consequences of such choices.

Audit of Interface Invoice Payments - Improving Contract Management and Payment Processes
City Council Decision

City Council on July 16, 17 and 18, 2019, adopted the following:

 

1.  City Council request the Chief Purchasing Officer to work with the Controller to:

 

a.  standardize and refine product purchases across divisions;

 

b.  capture data to track usage and compare against the goods and services specified in the contract;

 

c.  expand data analytics to centrally monitor and analyze expenditures as part of the contract management and payment process; and

 

d.  develop a reporting process to identify large deviations in goods purchased, from the goods specified in contracts, documenting the reasons for the deviation, and estimating the financial impact.

 

2.  City Council request the Controller to develop a process to verify the accuracy of early payment discounts for both interface and non-interface payment vendors; the ‘discount lost’ report should be updated to identify and include discounts lost on interface payments.

 

3.  City Council request the Controller to automate recording, monitoring and collection of volume rebates; outstanding amounts of volume rebates should be followed-up on, including those identified during the audit.

 

4.  City Council request the Chief Purchasing Officer to compare the current list of volume rebate vendors with City contracts to identify any vendors offering discounts but which may have been omitted from the existing manually maintained list.

 

5.  City Council request the Chief Purchasing Officer to review and update the procedures related to contract set-up in SAP so the detailed line items are entered in the system in accordance with the contract.

 

6.  City Council request the Chief Purchasing Officer to develop criteria and procedures for limiting the use of ‘miscellaneous category’ in contracts; any excess expenditures under the miscellaneous category over a specified limit should be reported as exceptions to respective Division Heads.

7.  City Council request the Executive Director, Municipal Licensing and Standards to establish a system to allow all vehicle-for-hire owners, operators and drivers to submit vehicle registrations and fees electronically.

 

Reserve Fund

 

8.  City Council establish a new Vehicle-for-Hire Reserve Fund as a Corporate Discretionary Reserve Fund to provide funding for initiatives associated with accessibility, transportation planning, or environmental goals relevant to the vehicle-for-hire and private transportation company industries and to minimize the impact of reliance on vehicle-for-hire and private transportation company licensing revenue for Municipal Licensing and Standards' Operating Budget, in accordance with the criteria outlined in Attachment 6 to the report (June 14, 2019) from the Executive Director, Municipal Licensing and Standards, by:

 

a.  amending the City of Toronto Municipal Code Chapter 227, Reserves and Reserve Funds, by adding the "Vehicle-for-Hire Reserve Fund" to Schedule 7, Corporate Discretionary Reserve Funds, with the criteria outlined in Attachment 6 to the report (June 14, 2019) from the Executive Director, Municipal Licensing and Standards;

 

b.  funding the Vehicle-for-Hire Reserve Fund in an initial amount of $6.093 million from an in-year adjustment of the 2019 Operating Budget of Municipal Licensing and Standards and, afterwards, with budgeted allocations from vehicle-for-hire and private transportation company licensing, including regulatory charges on licensees that do not provide wheelchair accessible vehicle-for-hire services; such that:

 

1.  for 2019, there will be a net zero expenditure and revenue budget adjustment comprised of a contribution to the reserve fund of $6,093,000, offset by an increase in vehicle-for-hire user fees (including private transportation company trip fees) of $6,093,000. The contribution to the new reserve fund would be dependent on sufficient actual user fee revenue being generated; and

 

2.  for 2020 and subsequent years, reserve funding and user fee budgets will be considered as part of the annual budget process and will be structured as outlined in the Financial Impact section of the report (June 14, 2019) from the Executive Director, Municipal Licensing and Standards;

 

c.  establishing a minimum targeted reserve balance of $5 million; and

 

d.  establishing Municipal Licensing and Standards as the primary owner of the account.

 

Implementation
