Commissioners Adopt County Budget

MADISON - Madison County's budget will see a slight property tax increase this year. County Clerk Nancy Scheer, a member of the Budget Committee, said at Tuesday's Commissioner's meeting, the property tax requirement of $11.6 million dollars is up by about a million dollars over last year. But she says an increase in property valuations will lessen the increase in the property tax levy to less than 1%. Commissioners adopted the budget 3-0.
