Changes in User Fees
The Council of the City of Toronto will be considering a proposal to pass by-laws to amend Municipal Code Chapter 441, Fees, in order to adopt changes to existing user fees that are proposed in the 2011 Recommended Operating Budget. The 2011 Recommended Operating Budget will be considered by City Council on February 23 to 28, 2011. The required by-laws will be before City Council at its meeting of March 8 and 9, 2011.

Attached to this notice is the briefing note (PDF) which sets out the proposed changes to existing user fees in the Operating Budget that require 21-day notice period.
