Tax the monster houses
It would seem to me that city council should take a hard look at the taxation level levied on all the monster homes being built in Surrey.
The only additional taxes levied are for waste removal. This seems like a small price to pay.
Would it not make sense to have these houses levied with an additional school tax as well? That may relieve some of the overburdening on the school system and help do away with some of the portables and teaching shortages.
I feel that this would be the very least these houses should be paying as they also have a great impact on infrastructure, roadways and additional policing.
Most residents don’t realize how easy these monster homes are getting off.
