Burnaby homeowners could get 'stove tax' credited back

There was some buzz about the Burnaby homeowners could get 'stove tax' credited back.

Burnaby Now, Local news as below:

Saying that "Proposal would see homeowners who do not rent out a suite exempted from utility surcharge"

According to the city's website "credit or account adjustment if Burnaby City Council approves related proposed bylaw amendments at the April 8 Burnaby City Council meeting and if the suite:

was not rented between January 1 and April 1 2019,
is currently not rented, and
will not be rented at any time in 2019."

Anyone heard anything about this if it was approved or not?

No news whatsoever from the local newspapers or even from the city's website. It seems like they want to keep it quiet which makes me think it wasnt approved.

I have followed up on the above and the proposal was approved. The homeowners will have the overpaid tax credited back. This is will reflect the amount on the Burnabys portal as well if you have an account. Good news to save over $500 a year.
