Committee Recommendations

The Government Management Committee recommends that:

 

1.         City Council request the Toronto Parking Authority to waive the rental for bike parking at the Nathan Phillip Square Bike Station.

 

2.         City Council direct the General Manager, Transportation Services, to commence building this project.

Origin

(March 19, 2013) Report from the Deputy City Manager and Chief Financial Officer

Summary

The purpose of this report is to respond to the Government Management Committee's request for a report back on amending the income sharing agreement between the Toronto Parking Authority and the City that includes waiving the rental for bike parking for the City Hall and other possible sites.

 

The Toronto Parking Authority is a public corporation owned by the City of Toronto. It is responsible for providing safe, attractive, self-sustaining, conveniently located, well maintained and competitively priced on-street and off-street parking in support of local communities and business areas across the City. According to the existing Income Sharing Agreement, net income earned by the Toronto Parking Authority is shared between the City and the Toronto Parking Authority. The City's share of revenue is included in the Non-Program Budget and used to fund the City's operations. The income retained by the Toronto Parking Authority is used to fund its multi-year capital program.

 

Any amendment to the current Income Sharing Agreement to waive revenues for bike parking for the City Hall site and other possible sites, would reduce the Toronto Parking Authority's future revenues and divert from its public mandate of providing self-sustaining and competitively priced on-street and off-street parking to other City initiatives outside its mandate . These initiatives should be addressed through the regular operating and capital budget processes as appropriate, by program areas which are responsible for their delivery, rather through amendments to the Income Sharing Agreement with the Toronto Parking Authority.
