13.  City Council direct the City Manager to consult with the Toronto Police Service Board and the Toronto Police Chief on the potential reallocation of funds from the Toronto Police Service budget to ensure that the funding of the Community Crisis Support Services Pilot will not result in new financial burden to Toronto residents and to report the outcomes of this consultation through the City’s budget process.

Property Tax Policies for 2021
City Council Decision

City Council on February 2, 3 and 5, 2021, adopted the following:

 

1.  City Council adopt the following property tax capping polices, for the 2021 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 2021 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 1.c. below; and

 

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.

 

2.  City Council direct the Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer to review and report back to the Executive Committee and City Council during 2021 on additional tax policy options, including the potential to define a small business tax class to provide a lower tax rate for qualifying properties, and other potential measures to address impacts on properties that may be subject to large increases in assessed value based on speculative or hypothetical uses, rather than the current use of the property, all for consideration for 2022 and future years.

 

3. City Council direct the Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer to conduct the analysis, program design and stakeholder consultations for a prospective small business property tax subclass, as outlined in the supplementary report (February 1, 2021)  from the Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer  and report back to City Council through the Executive Committee as soon as possible for implementation of the subclass and with a mechanism to ensure that any benefits accrue to tenants and not landlords.

 

4.  City Council direct the Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer to immediately begin the consultation required for the intention of implementing a new small business property subclass in order to support small businesses through the pandemic and to stimulate economic growth and job creation post-pandemic.

 

5.  City Council direct the Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer to develop a small business property subclass definition that addresses the following issues:

 

a.  highest and best use assessments - the small business property subclass definition should address the need to reduce property taxes for small businesses that have endured increases in property assessments beyond the average for the Commercial Tax Class;

 

b.  preserving and rebuilding Toronto’s Main Streets - the small business property subclass definition should support small businesses located on Toronto’s main streets, helping them to survive through the pandemic, while also encouraging the rebuilding of main streets post-pandemic; and

 

c.  broad tax relief for small businesses - the small business property subclass definition should recognize that small businesses are located throughout the City and provide a process to provide broad tax relief to these businesses.

 

6.  City Council direct the Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer to set the small business property subclass tax rate to be a percentage reduction from the Commercial General rate, as approved by City Council, as soon as possible and no later than 2022.

 

7.  City Council direct the Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer, the Chief Planner and Executive Director, City Planning, and the General Manager, Economic Development and Culture, once the Provincial Regulations are released, to report on the financial analysis, program design, additional criteria and enhancements, and implementation for the small business property subclass and to report their recommendations as soon as possible.

Ombudsman Toronto Report - Enquiry into How the City of Toronto Handles Homeowner Third-Party Liability Claims for Basement Flooding and Sewer Backups
City Council Decision

City Council on February 2, 3 and 5, 2021, adopted the following:

 

1. City Council adopt the Ombudsman Toronto Report (November 12, 2020) and in so doing, accept the Ombudsman's findings and direct the City administration to implement all of the recommendations.

 

Ombudsman's Recommendations:

 

In consideration of the information gathered through this Enquiry and our findings, we make the following recommendations, which the City should implement as soon as possible:

 

Explain that the City Only Pays When a Homeowner Proves the City Was Negligent

 

1.  Insurance and Risk Management and Toronto Water should revise the Basement Flooding – General Information brochure to include better information for the public about how the City handles basement flood and sewer backup claims. This information should include:

 

- The fact that making a third-party liability claim against the City does not guarantee payment;

 

- That the City will only pay a claim where the claimant is able to prove that the City was negligent;

 

- Reference to the City’s website for information on making a claim against the City.

 

Explain the Claimant’s Onus of Proof to Establish Negligence

 

2.  Insurance and Risk Management should ensure that the City’s website and all written communications to claimants about the claim investigation process clearly explain that the onus is on the claimant to prove that the City was negligent.

 

Information for the Public Must be Clear and Accurate.

 

3.  Insurance and Risk Management and Toronto Water should work with the City’s Strategic Communications division to revise all relevant sections of the City’s website to ensure that the public gets clear, consistent and detailed information about how Toronto Water investigates basement floods and sewer backups, and ensure that these sections of the website also provide information about how the City handles third-party liability claims about basement floods and sewer backups.

 

Tell People Reporting to 311 May Make the Difference

 

4.  Insurance and Risk Management, in collaboration with Toronto Water, Legal Services and Strategic Communications, should provide clear information on the City’s website about the importance of reporting a basement flood or sewer backup to 311. The information on the website should explain why reporting a basement flood or sewer backup incident to 311 to allow Toronto Water to investigate may play an important part in the claims investigation process.

 

Stop Routinely Asking for a Confidentiality Clause on Settlement

 

5.  Insurance and Risk Management should stop routinely including a confidentiality clause in the Final Release it has claimants sign when settling a claim. This should apply to all third-party liability claim settlements, not just those related to basement floods and sewer backups. The exception will be where the City Solicitor or outside counsel representing the City expressly recommends including a confidentiality clause in a particular case.

 

Develop a Process for Storm Events

 

6.  Insurance and Risk Management, Legal Services and Toronto Water should develop a written “business process” to coordinate the investigation of storm event claims.

 

7. In developing a business process for storm event claim investigations, Insurance and Risk Management, Legal Services and Toronto Water should consider the following:

 

- Including a definition of a “storm event” for the purposes of grouping third-party liability claims into a storm event category;

 

- Objectives of the storm event claims investigations process;

            

- Sources of evidence to be considered in the storm event claims investigation process;


- Outlining the roles and responsibilities of the various actors involved in the storm event claims investigations process;


- Establishing/outlining a process to share evidence Toronto Water staff gathers during the storm event claims process with other sections of Toronto Water (e.g. the Basement Flooding Prevention Program);

 

- Developing a communications strategy to:

 

- Implement a schedule to ensure regular communication with claimants about the status of the storm event claims investigations;

 

- Give homeowners information about the negligence claims process, including making homeowners aware of the difference between reporting a flood/sewer backup incident to 311 and making a third liability claim against the City;

 

- Give homeowners information about storm event claims investigations, including general explanations of why some homeowners impacted by a storm event may be successful in their claims while others may not.
 

8. The City should post information about the storm event claims investigations process on its website.

 

Make Better Use of the Toronto Water Coordinator Position

 

9.  Toronto Water should review the job responsibilities for the Coordinator – Business Process position and examine ways in which third-party liability claims data could be shared with sections of Toronto Water responsible for preventing and addressing basement floods and sewer backups.

 

2. City Council direct the General Manager, Toronto Water, in consultation with the Director, Insurance and Risk Management, Finance and Treasury Services, and the City Solicitor to report to the General Government and Licensing Committee in the second quarter of 2021 on recommended eligibility criteria and financial implications of providing a one-time no-fault grant for residential property owners and / or tenants in the Rockcliffe neighbourhood of Ward 5, York South-Weston, and other similarly impacted areas, who were uninsurable for basement flooding insurance coverage and reported one or more sewer back-up / basement flooding incidents to the City of Toronto as of a result of storm events during the time period January 1, 2018 to December 31, 2020 inclusive.
