Origin

(February 8, 2011) Report from the City Manager and the Deputy City Manager and Chief Financial Officer

Summary

This report presents the 2011 Budget Committee (BC) Recommended Tax Supported Operating Budget and seeks Council’s approval for the services, service levels and spending plans detailed therein.  The 2011 BC Recommended Tax Supported Operating Budget achieves the Mayor’s budget directions.  It is balanced with no unfunded ‘gaps’ (or unspecified reductions); includes no major service cuts; and neither residential nor non-residential property tax rates will be increased.

 

Given no committed Provincial Assistance for TTC Operations, the continuation of the City Manager’s Four Point Plan was key to achieving a balanced budget with no property tax increase.  Through the 2010 hiring slowdown initiative, constraints on discretionary spending, as well as higher than anticipated revenues, a 2010 projected surplus of $268 million was realized.  Service efficiency reviews resulted in expenditure reductions of $57 million.  In addition, the strategy to pay down debt resulted in reduced debt service costs; and the City was successful in obtaining permanent provincial funding of $52 million for the full 50% cost sharing of Ontario Works Administration costs. 

 

It is noted that unsustainable revenues of about $372 million used to balance the 2011 BC Recommended Tax Supported Operating Budget will contribute to a significant pressure in 2012.

4c - 100% Provincial Funding for Toronto Public Health - Sexually Transmitted Infections Program

Origin
(February 15, 2011) Report from the Medical Officer of Health
Summary

This report is submitted to request an amendment to the Toronto Public Health (TPH) 2011 Recommended Operating Budget.  This amendment is required as a result of the provision of one-time, one hundred percent Provincial funding in the amount of $100,000 as part of the Provincial Government’s response to ongoing elevated rates of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and infectious syphilis in Toronto.

 

This funding will assist in compliance with the Ontario Public Health Standards defined in the Health Protection and Promotion Act.  The Provincial Government requires that this funding be used to support a communication strategy encouraging HIV and syphilis screening among men who have sex with men (MSM) in Toronto in an upcoming HIV/syphilis testing initiative that TPH is implementing in conjunction with the Ontario AIDS Bureau and Hassle Free Clinic. Funding must be fully spent by March 31, 2011. Hassle Free Clinic is a long-standing community partner of TPH.  TPH will flow these funds to Hassle Free Clinic which will coordinate the communication strategy and the syphilis/HIV screening initiative.
