Interpretation
1(1)  In this Regulation, "calculation time" means the point in time
referred to in section 2.

(2)  The definitions in section 1 and 241 of the Act apply to this
Regulation.


Debt limit
2(1)  Subject to subsection (2), the debt limit of a municipality at a
point in time is,

     (a)  in respect of the municipality's total debt, 1.5 times the
revenue of the municipality, and

     (b)  in respect of the municipality's debt service, 0.25 times the
revenue of the municipality.

(2)  The debt limit for the City of Calgary, the City of Edmonton and the
City of Medicine Hat at a point in time is,

     (a)  in respect of the municipality's total debt, 2 times the
revenue of the municipality, and

     (b)  in respect of the municipality's debt service, 0.35 times the
revenue of the municipality.


Revenue
3   The revenue of a municipality at the calculation time is determined by
the formula

               R = a - b

where

"R" is revenue;

"a" is the total revenue reported in the last audited annual financial
statement of the municipality prepared before the calculation time, less
transfers from the governments of Alberta and Canada for the purposes of a
capital property reported in that statement if those transfers are included
in the total revenue;

"b" is the principal outstanding at the calculation time on loans made by
the municipality under section 265 of the Act.


Total debt
4   The total debt of a municipality at the calculation time is determined
by the formula

               TD = (a + b)  - c

where

"TD" is the total debt;

"a" is the principal outstanding at the calculation time on borrowings made
by the municipality;

"b" is the principal outstanding at the calculation time of loans in good
standing that have been guaranteed by the municipality, plus the amount
that the municipality is liable to pay at the calculation time under loans
not in good standing that have been guaranteed by the municipality;

"c" is the amount of a and b that the municipality is entitled to recover
from another municipality at the calculation time.


Debt service
5(1)  The debt service of a municipality at the calculation time is
determined by the formula

               DS = (a + b)  - c

where

"DS" is the debt service;

"a" is the sum of,

     (i)  for borrowings made by the municipality in which the
municipality is required to pay principal during the 12 months after the
calculation time, the total amount of principal and interest that the
municipality will be required to pay in respect of those borrowings during
the 12 months after the calculation time, and

     (ii) for borrowings made by the municipality in which the
municipality is not required to pay any principal during the 12 months
after the calculation time, the total of the pro rata amounts in respect of
those borrowings determined under subsection (2) for the 12 months after
the calculation time;

"b" is the total amount that the council estimates on reasonable grounds
that the municipality will be liable to pay during the 12 months after the
calculation time in respect of loans not in good standing that have been
guaranteed by the municipality;

"c" is the amount of a and b that the municipality is entitled to recover
from another municipality during the 12 months after the calculation time.

(2)  The pro rata amount for a borrowing at the calculation time is
determined by the formula




where

"PRA" is the pro rata amount for the borrowing;

"D" is the total amount of principal and interest that the municipality
will be required to pay from the calculation time to the end of the
amortization period of the borrowing;

"E" is the number of months from the calculation time to the end of the
amortization period of the borrowing.

(3)  For the purposes of determining D in the PRA formula, if the actual
rate of interest under a borrowing is not known at the calculation time for
some or all of the payments under the borrowing, the rate of interest for
those payments is determined by using the rate of interest in effect at the
calculation time.


Controlled corporations
6(1)  If a municipality controls one or more corporations, the municipality
may choose to calculate its revenue, total debt and debt service as though
one or more of the controlled corporations are part of the municipality.

(2)  If a municipality chooses to include a controlled corporation in the
calculation of its revenue, total debt and debt service, all of the
controlled corporation's revenue, borrowings, guarantees and loans must be
included in those calculations except that

     (a)  revenues arising from transactions between the municipality and
the controlled corporation or between the controlled corporation and
another corporation controlled by the municipality that the municipality
includes as being part of the municipality are not to be included in the
combined revenues, and

     (b)  guarantees and loans between the municipality and the
controlled corporation or between the controlled corporation and another
corporation controlled by the municipality that the municipality includes
as being part of the municipality are not to be included in the combined
total debt or debt service.


Repeal
7   The Debt Limit Regulation (AR 375/94) is repealed.


Expiry
8   For the purpose of ensuring that this Regulation is reviewed for
ongoing relevancy and necessity, with the option that it may be repassed in
its present or an amended form following a review, this Regulation expires
on March 31, 2005.
