5. Municipal Fiscal Gap - AMO Request for Resolution

 

Committee of the Whole recommends:

1. Receipt of the communication from Lynn Dollin, President, Association of Municipalities Ontario (AMO) dated October 6, 2016 and adoption of the following:

Whereas recent polling, conducted on behalf of the Association of Municipalities of Ontario, indicates 76% of Ontarians are concerned or somewhat concerned that property taxes will not cover the cost of infrastructure while maintaining municipal services, and 90% agree maintaining safe infrastructure is an important priority for their communities;

And Whereas infrastructure and transit are identified by Ontarians as the biggest problems facing their municipal government;

And Whereas a ten-year projection (2016-2025) of municipal expenditures against inflationary property tax and user fee increases, shows there to be an unfunded average annual need of $3.6 billion to fix local infrastructure and provide for municipal operating needs;

And Whereas the $3.6 billion average annual need would equate to annual increases of 4.6% (including inflation) to province-wide property tax revenue for the next ten years;

And Whereas this gap calculation also presumes all existing and multi-year planned federal and provincial transfers to municipal governments are fulfilled;

And Whereas if future federal and provincial transfers are unfulfilled beyond 2015 levels, it would require annual province-wide property tax revenue increases of up to 8.35% for ten years;

And Whereas Ontarians already pay the highest property taxes in the country;

And Whereas each municipal government in Ontario faces unique issues, and the fiscal health and needs are a challenge which unites all municipal governments, regardless of size;

Now Therefore Be It Resolved that York Region supports the Association of Municipalities of Ontario in its work to close the fiscal gap; so that all municipalities can benefit from predictable and sustainable revenue, to finance the pressing infrastructure and municipal service needs faced by all municipal governments.

2. The Regional Clerk forward the communication and the resolution to the local municipalities.
