2018 Business Improvement Area Budgets and Enabling Bylaws

The Committee recommended that Council approve the proposed 2018 Business Improvement Area (BIA) budget (attachment 1 - revised) and authorize each BIA board to amend its respective budget by transferring amounts to or from a BIA board’s reserve; and transferring amounts between expenditures so long as the amount of the total expenditures is not increased. The Committee also recommended that Council give three readings to the 2018 BIA Tax Bylaw and the 2018 Tax Rates Bylaw. It was recommended that this report and attachments be forwarded to the Jan. 22, 2018, Public Hearing of Council as a matter of Urgent Business.

ZBR Program Update

The Committee recommended that Council receive the six attachments for information.

The Zero-Based Review (ZBR) program complements The City of Calgary’s other continuous improvement activities by adding a periodic, more thorough review of whether the right services are being provided in the right way. This work is especially important in the current economic climate when resources are limited but the demand for City services is not.

The Committee recommended that Council approve the creation of the Off-Site Transportation Improvements in Lieu of Parking Fund per the terms of the attachment; and this report be directed to the Feb. 20, 2018, Public Hearing of Council to be heard in conjunction with the proposed Land Use Bylaw and Land Use Planning Policy amendments.

2018 Business Tax Rate Bylaw

The Committee recommended that Council give three readings to the proposed 2018 Business Tax Rate Bylaw setting the 2018 Business Tax Rate at 0.0161; and this report and attachments be forwarded to the Jan. 22, 2018, Public Hearing of Council as a matter of Urgent Business.
