PRÉVISIONS PRÉLIMINAIRES DU BUDGET DE FONCTIONNEMENT DE 2012 – COMITÉ DE DÉROGATION
That City Council receive and table the Committee of Adjustment Draft 2012 Operating Budget at its meeting of October 26, 2011 for subsequent consideration by Council in Committee of the Whole to be held November 30, 2011.
Que le Conseil municipal reçoive et dépose les prévisions budgétaires de fonctionnement 2012 du Comité de dérogation à sa réunion du 26 octobre 2011 aux fins de leur examen ultérieur par le Conseil siégeant en tant que comité plénier lors de la réunion prévue le 30 novembre 2011.
On June 22, 2011, Council endorsed the Long Range Financial Plan (Part 1) report which outlined a budget preparation strategy for 2012 and for the term of Council. The strategy set the increase in the municipal portion of the tax bill to a maximum increase of 2.5 per cent per year during Council’s term of office.
The 2012 Draft Operating Estimates were developed based on a projected number of applications, and meets Council’s directive to be 100% direct cost recovery. As part of these estimates, the Committee will be further refining the fees for our two main types of applications
based on a Full Cost User Fee Review undertaken in 2010 to specifically address appeals of the
Committee’s application fees to the Ontario Municipal Board. This fee analysis, which adds four sub-categories of fees, will now provide the basis to defend any future appeals of the Committee’s application fees to the Board. In the case of the recirculation fees, where the review called for a substantial increase to be fully cost-recovery, the increase will be phased in over two years.
