On February 15 and 16, 2017, City Council approved the 2017 Budget Committee Recommended Operating Budget for the Accountability Offices. At that time, City Council approved the "temporary increase of $1.0 million, as reflected in the Auditor General's 2017 Budget Committee Recommended Operating Budget to provide additional capacity to undertake value for money audits and investigations, subject to a report back to Audit and Executive Committees from the Auditor General on a revised audit work plan, and that temporary planned increases of up to $1.5 million in 2018 and an additional $1.4 million in 2019 be subject to consideration in future year budget processes together with revised audit work plans."

1n - Massey Hall Revitalization

Origin
(April 5, 2017) Letter from City Council
Summary

City Council on March 28 and 29, 2017, in adopting MM27.39 on Massey Hall Revitalization, has requested the Budget Committee to consider financial support for Phase 2 of the Massey Hall Revitalization Project in the 2018 budget process.

 

City Council has adopted MM27.39 on Massey Hall Revitalization and in so doing, has expressed support of the Massey Hall Revitalization Project. City Council has also requested the Budget Committee to consider financial support for Phase 2 of the Massey Hall Revitalization Project in the 2018 budget process.

 

The Corporation of Massey Hall and Roy Thomson hall has embarked on a major revitalization of the iconic Massey Hall that involves both an extensive restoration of this heritage building combined with significant new construction elements, and a significant strategic evolution in how this renewed asset is to be operated. This project is about building self-sustaining digital infrastructure that will help grow our music industry in an increasingly important and competitive global market.

 

The full scope of the Massey Hall Revitalization will be undertaken in 2018. The Massey Hall Revitalization team has set out the case for the $110 million Phase 2 Massey Hall Revitalization to all levels of government. They have requested $34 million from each of the federal and provincial governments, as well as meaningful support from the City of Toronto and expect to raise over $40 million in private sector contributions.

 

As 2018 approaches it is critical that the support and commitment of public sector partners is secured. The federal and provincial governments' initial investment of $8 million each in Phase 1 allowed progress on the Massey Hall Revitalization, the first major renovation in over 70 years. To complete the job it is necessary to move forward to Phase 2 to capitalize on the full potential of this national cultural institution.

 

The economic and social impact study undertaken as part of the Revitalization shows that it will contribute in measurable long-term growth in jobs and for our economy. When complete the impact will be:

 

- 300 Full Time Equivalent jobs a year

- $26.8 million contribution to Gross Domestic Product

- $8.3 million contribution to the tax base

 

Massey Hall will continue to operate without public operating grants from any level of government. A public sector capital commitment to Massey Hall, spread over four of five years, is a realistic investment that will reap long term benefits for the City of Toronto, the performing arts sector, and the local economy for many years going forward.

1w - Port Lands Flood Protection

Origin
(December 5, 2017) Report from the Deputy City Manager, Cluster B and the Acting Chief Financial Officer
Summary

This report provides further details associated with the funding of the Port Lands Flood Protection project, which is included in the City's recommended 2018 to 2027 Capital Budget and Plan. In addition, this report seeks City Council authority to enter into a Contribution Agreement with the Federal and Provincial governments and Waterfront Toronto.

 

The Port Lands Flood Protection project will enable the redevelopment of the Port Lands and the South of Eastern areas, including the Unilever Precinct. The project will provide flood protection to the level of the regulatory storm event (the equivalent of Hurricane Hazel), a precondition for revitalization in the Port Lands and South of Eastern areas.

 

On November 8, 2016, City Council directed the Deputy City Manager, Cluster B, and Chief Financial Officer to identify funding for the City's one-third share of Port Lands Flood Protection, and to make the necessary cost sharing funding requests to the Federal and Provincial governments. In addition, Council approved funding for the Cherry Street Stormwater and Lakefilling project, a "quick-start" component of Port Lands Flood Protection. Subsequently, through the 2017 to 2026 Capital Budget and Plan, Council approved the City’s share of funding for the full project, with a related cash flow.

 

On June 28, 2017, the Prime Minister, Premier and Mayor announced funding for the full Port Lands Flood Protection project. The announcement followed Federal and Provincial Treasury Board approvals for two-thirds of the funding for the overall $1.25 billion dollar project. The Federal and Provincial governments have thus matched the City's one-third share of funding.

 

Changes are required to the project cash flow that was approved by Council in the 2017 to 2026 Capital Budget and Plan. These changes are the result of negotiations between the government partners around the timing of Federal and Provincial funding contributions. Under the finalized cash flow, City funding will be required between 2017 and 2020, while Federal and Provincial funding will be provided between 2018 and 2023.

 

City staff require Council authority to enter into a Contribution Agreement with the Federal and Provincial governments and Waterfront Toronto. Attachment 1 summarizes the key terms of a Contribution Agreement that City staff will advance as part of ongoing negotiations between the three governments and Waterfront Toronto.
