The Madison County Board will consider a budget that for the third year in a row shows a 2% or less increase in the tax levy. That could mean a slight increase in the county portion of your tax bill, or even a slight decrease, depending upon a couple of factors. That could include residential or commercial development in the county, or a change in the equalized assessed value.
The Finance and Government Operations Committee held a special meeting Monday morning for the purpose of looking at the budget. Madison County Board Chairman Alan Dunstan:
If passed as-is, the general fund budget will be $43.4-million for the coming fiscal year, a little less than a $900,000 increase over the previous year.
