Origin

(June 14, 2018) Report from the Interim Chief Financial Officer

Summary

The purpose of this report is to provide Council with the City of Toronto's Operating Variance results for the year ended December 31, 2017 and the disposition of the 2017 year-end operating surplus.

 

As noted in Table 1, the final 2017 year-end expenditures for Tax Supported Operations resulted in a net favourable variance of $260.452 million available for distribution after Council directions and legislative requirements are met. This surplus represents 2.4 percent of the Tax Supported Gross Expenditure Budget and is consistent with historical year-end results.

In accordance with Council and legislative requirements, a portion of the surplus ($36.262 million) will be allocated to reserves for the following Programs and Agency: Toronto Building ($27.588 million), City Planning ($6.558 million) and Exhibition Place ($2.116 million).

 

The 2017 year-end net surplus of $260.452 million is driven largely by the following key factors:

 

- Over-achieved Municipal Land Transfer Tax revenue of $95.684 due to higher than anticipated real estate market activity.
 

- Under-expenditure by the Toronto Transit Commission of $88.695 million net primarily as a result of lower departmental material expenditures, labour costs, employee benefits and utility costs of $71.668 million net within Conventional Service, and fewer than budgeted customer journeys than planned within Wheel Trans of $17.027 million net.

 
- Favourable year-end variance in Supplementary Taxes of $15.230 million net due to the anticipated number of properties and assessment values received from Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) being higher than budget.
 

- Higher than budgeted Interest / Investment Earnings of $15.747 million as a result of new investment tools for short term funds in 2017.
 

- Favourable year-end variance in Debt Charges of $12.122 million due to timing of debt issuance and lower interest rates.
 

- A remaining favourable variance of $32.974 million or 0.3 percent of the Gross Expenditure Budget for the balance of City Programs and Agencies primarily due to a combination of under spending in salary and benefits from vacant positions and volume driven under spending in non-salary expenditure categories.

 

Consistent with the Council approved Surplus Management Policy, at least 75 percent or $196.539 million will be allocated to the Capital Financing Reserve and the remaining $63.913 million will be allocated to underfunded liabilities and/or reserve funds.

 

Rate Supported Programs:

 

Rate Supported Programs reported a cumulative year-end net favourable variance of $29.356 million. Table 2 below summarizes the 2017 year end results for each Rate Supported Program:

The key year-end net under spending was driven by:

 

- A year-end favourable variance of $4.028 million net in Solid Waste Management Services as a result of under expenditure in salaries and benefits in Collections and Litter Operations section, lower spending on contracted services due to lower tonnage of recyclable material processed, higher than budgeted revenues from tipping fees and sale of recyclables and scrap.
 

- A revenue shortfall in Toronto Parking Authority of $1.858 million net primarily due to off-street carpark closures and a delay in securing sponsorship for the Bike Share Program.
 

- A favourable variance in Toronto Water of $27.186 million net primarily due to lower than budgeted costs from fewer weather related emergencies and project delays, underspending in salaries and benefits from vacant positions, lower than anticipated demand for chemicals and lower than budgeted utility costs.
