City Council - Operating Budget

 

That:

 

1.  City Council increase the 2017 City Council Operating Budget by $ 0.192 million, funded from the Property Tax Stabilization Reserve.

 

2.  City Council amend Executive Committee Recommendation 237 by deleting Parts 1 and 2 so that the current Constituency Services and Office Budget Policy for telecommunications expenses and newspaper entitlement remain unchanged:

 

Parts to be deleted:

 

237.  1.   For telecommunications expenses:

 

a.  delete the following bullets in Section 5, Eligible Expenses, category Wireless Products and Services, sub-section provided from the City's centralized resources:

 

-  expenses related to electronic equipment, including roaming charges will be charged to the Council General Expense Budget provided the Councillor has notified Council and Support Services and roaming plans have been set up for the Councillor, prior to leaving the City.

 

-  a basic voice and data plan will be included for BlackBerry smart phones and a data plan will be included for mobile tablets.

 

-  exception usage, e.g. long distance costs exceeding the roaming plan, will be charged to the Constituency Services and Office Budget.

 

so that the sub-section now reads:

 

"Provided from the City's centralized resources:

 

-  One Blackberry or other smart phone supported by the City's wireless infrastructure for each Councillor Office for use by the Councillor

 

-  One mobile tablet for each Councillor for use by the Councillor

 

-  The Councillor has a choice of the City's wireless vendors"

 

b.  amend section 2(f), Wireless, in Appendix 1, Resources Available/Allocated to Councillors by deleting the reference "Basic monthly voice and data plan will be included" in bullets 1 and 2, and deleting bullet 3 "Expenses related to electronic equipment, including roaming charges will be charged to the Council General Expense Budget provided the Councillor has notified Council and Support Services and roaming plans have been set up for the Councillor, prior to the City." so that section 2(f) now reads:

 

"-  Each Councillor will be provided with a BlackBerry or other smart phone supported by the City's wireless infrastructure as office equipment.

 

-  Each Councillor will be provided with a mobile tablet as office equipment."

 

2.  For Newsletter Entitlement

 

a.  delete the following section 3(e), titled "Entitlement equivalent to distribution of a newsletter to all households" in Appendix 1, Resources Available/Allocated to Councillors:

 

-  each Councillor is entitled to an amount equivalent to the cost of postage or delivery by other means of one newsletter to all households within the ward, based on the 2011 census information, and at a rate not to exceed the current Canada Post standard Admail rate, paid for from the Council General Expense Budget.

 

so that Recommendation 237 now reads as follows:

 

237.  In order to effect the budget reductions included in the 2017 Budget Committee Recommended Operating Budget, City Council approve the following change to the Constituency Services and Office Budget Policy:

 

1.  For AODA Entitlement

 

a.  amend section 3(f) "Entitlement related to the meeting of Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA)",  in Appendix 1, Resources Available/Allocated to Councillors, by reducing the pooled budget from $44,000 to $10,000 so that section 3(f) now reads:

 

"-  A pooled fund of $10,000, from the Council General Expense Budget, is provided to Councillors for expenses related to the meeting of the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) accessibility requirements for Councillor events or meetings. The fund is used on a first-come, first-served basis, with no limit per Councillor. Councillors wishing to use the fund must contact the City Clerk's Office to ensure funds are available. During an election year, the entitlement is prorated in accordance with approved Council policies."

Councillor Mammoliti, rising on a Point of Order, stated that earlier in the meeting some Members of Council had requested that Item EX22.1 on the 2017 Property Tax Rate be considered after Item EX22.2 to avoid the situation Council was currently in, that of an unbalanced Budget.

Point of Order by Councillor Michael Thompson

Councillor Thompson, rising on a Point of Order, stated that the vote that Council had just taken on street sweeping reductions had resulted in an unbalanced budget and he wished to understand how Council would procedurally ensure that the budget would be balanced.


Ruling by Speaker Frances Nunziata
Speaker Nunziata, accepted the Point of Order and ruled that Council would take a brief recess to permit her to consult with staff on the matter.

Speaker Nunziata subsequently made the following ruling:

Members, as a result of the last vote on the transportation services budget, City Council cannot adopt a balanced budget.

The City of Toronto Act requires the City to adopt a balanced budget.

The City Clerk and the City Solicitor have advised me that there are two ways to resolve this.

The first option is for Council to agree to vary the procedures now to allow a motion to be placed that would bring the budget into balance by identifying an offsetting source of funds.

Councillor Crawford is prepared to make such a motion.

A motion to vary the order requires a 2/3 vote.

If Council does not agree to vary the proceedings, this meeting will have to be adjourned without adopting a budget and a special meeting of Council will be required for the purpose of adopting the budget.

Is someone prepared to move to vary the order to allow a fixing motion to be placed?
Rulings (City Council)
Ruling by Speaker Frances Nunziata
Members, before we begin the debate on Item EX22.2, I wish to rule on a number of Executive Committee Recommendations.

First is Executive Committee Recommendation 158 which asks for a report directly to this meeting on Parks and Recreation user fees. Although the motion to request this report lost at Budget Committee, the request was included in the corporate report to Executive Committee in error. As the Budget Committee did not ask for this report, the request was not properly before the Executive Committee. I am therefore ruling Recommendation 158 out of order.

The next are Executive Committee Recommendations 182 and 183. These recommendations pertain to the Operating Budget for City Planning.

At its January 11th meeting, the Planning and Growth Management Committee considered a report on additional staffing resources for development application review. That report contained both policy recommendations and budget recommendations. As a consequence, the report was submitted to the Budget Committee at the same time.

Planning and Growth Management Committee forwarded its recommendations on the budget portion of the report to the Budget Committee.

The Policy recommendations however were in the mandate of the Planning and Growth Management Committee, and accordingly, the Committee made recommendations to City Council. That Item, PG17.4, was adopted, as amended by City Council at its January 31st meeting.

Executive Committee Recommendations 182 and 183 relate to a matter on which City Council has already made a decision. As a result, I am ruling Executive Committee Recommendations 182 and 183, redundant, and not properly before City Council.

Members, I also remind you that Council has adopted the tax rates and the revenues they will generate under item EX22.1.

That means that motions that affect the tax rates and the amounts to be levied will not be in order during the debate on Item 2.

Any motion that proposes an amendment to the levels of expenditure must also provide an offsetting amount.
Declared Interests (City Council)

The following member(s) declared an interest:

Councillor Vincent Crisanti - as it pertains to the Municipal Land Transfer Tax as he is a member of the Toronto Real Estate Board.
Councillor Norman Kelly - as it pertains to the Toronto Police Service as his wife is a civilian employee in Court Services.
Councillor James Pasternak - as it pertains to the Toronto Public Library as his wife, while on leave, is technically works for the Toronto Public Library.
Mayor John Tory - as it pertains to the expansion and provision of telephone, wireless, internet and television services, contained in the Information & Technology, Toronto Police, Toronto Transit Commission and Toronto Community Housing Corporation budgets, and as it pertains to the provision of news summary services provided by Canadian Newswire because of his family's involvement with Rogers Communications.
