TO: The Chairman and Members of the Authority DATE: July 13, 2010, 2010 SUBJECT: Budget Status Report - Report No. 44-10 Attached is the budget status report for the period ending June 30, 2010. Expenditures in the operating budget are generally in line with the approved budget for 2010 with the following notes. • Administration fees for the Planning and Regulations program have increased since the previous status report and are approaching anticipated levels. Staff will continue to monitor revenues in this regard. • Expenditures in the Regulations are above budget levels due primarily to higher than expected legal fees Capital budget expenditures will increase to budget levels as projects have recently been initiated. There are no other significant variances to report at this time. RECOMMENDATION: That the Budget Status Report for the period ending June 30, 2010 be received. Respectfully Submitted By: ___________________________________________ Tony D’Amario, P. Eng. CAO/ Secretary-Treasurer

TO: The Chairman and Members of the Authority DATE: July 12, 2010 SUBJECT: Appointment of Auditors for 2010 - Report No. 45-10 The NPCA has used MacGillivray Partners as it auditors since 1993 and over that time has provided excellent and thorough services to both the NPCA and the Niagara Peninsula Conservation Foundation. Their full knowledge and experience with the NPCA operations and accounting system allows them to undertake their work very efficiently. A summary of their audit fees by year (since 2004) is provided below for comparison purposes. It should be noted that the total cost is below the NPCA current policy consultant selection policy for sole sourcing ($25,000). DATE Audit Cost 2005 $13,800 2006 $14,000 2007 $14,900 2008 $15,500 Audit fees for 2009 have not been invoiced to date as the firm has only recently completed the financial statements for that time. It is expected that the fees will increase given the additional work required to set up and report on Capital Assets as required under PSAB. It is recommended that the firm of MacGillivray Partners be retained the Conservation Authority’s auditors for 2010. RECOMMENDATION: That the firm of MacGillivray and Partners be appointed as the Conservation Authority Auditors for 2010.
