Remuneration and Expenses of Members of the Former

Metropolitan Toronto Council and of the Former

Metropolitan Toronto Appointees to Local Boards and

Other Special Purpose Bodies for the Period

January 1 to December 31, 1997



The Corporate Services Committee reports having received the following report (March 12, 1998) from the Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer; and having directed that such report be submitted to Council for information:



Recommendation:



It is recommended that this report be received and forwarded to Council for information.



Background:



Section No. 247 of The Municipal Act provides that the Treasurer of every municipality shall submit to the Council of the municipality, before February 28, in each year, a statement of the remuneration and expenses paid in the preceding year to each Member of Council in respect of his/her services as a Member of Council or as an officer of the municipal corporation and also to each Member of Council or other person appointed by the Council to a local board or other Special Purpose Body.



My report to the Strategic Policies and Priorities Committee, dated February 6, 1998, noted that, given the current schedule of Council meetings and other administrative issues related to the amalgamation, a report respecting the above would be forwarded to the Corporate Services Committee meeting on March 30, 1998, and, subsequently, to Council on April 15, 1998.



Given the differing remuneration and expense indemnity policies and practices that were in place in the former Metropolitan and Area Municipalities in 1997, the submission of separate, individual reports in respect of each former municipality is more appropriate in these circumstances.



This report is in respect of the remuneration and expenses of Members and Appointees of the former Metropolitan Toronto Council.



(a) Members of Council:



The attached statement, Appendix A, summarizes the remuneration and expenses of Members of Council for the period January 1, to December 31, 1997, based on expenses actually paid or reimbursed during the period. Appendices B and C include a breakdown, by expense component, of each Member's office expenses and Appendix D provides details of the business travel costs for each Councillor.



Authority: Remuneration and expense indemnity of Members of Council were authorized by Metropolitan Council By-law No. 1-93.



(b) Council appointees to Local Boards and other Special Purpose Bodies:

The remuneration and expenses summarized below have been paid by the respective local board or other Special Purpose Body.

The Metropolitan Toronto and Region Conservation Authority has passed no such resolution.
