STAFF REPORTS

 

EXCLUDED EXPENSES

Council adopted the compliance report for expenses excluded from the 2016 budget as required by Ontario Regulation 284/09.

In 2009, the Public Sector Accounting Board (PSAB) introduced major revisions to accounting standards whereby municipalities were required to move to a full accrual basis of financial statement reporting. The most notable change was the introduction of PSAB 3150 – Tangible Capital Assets, which requires municipalities to amortize (depreciate) tangible capital assets over their useful life, as opposed to expensing the entire cost in the year of purchase (cash basis).

ADOPTION OF THE 2016 BUDGET ESTIMATES

Council approved the 2016 budget. For more information, please refer to the media release “2016 Collingwood Budget Approved.”
