Town Announces Food to Clean Energy Program Opportunity for Residents
We are excited to announce a new food scrap co-collection pilot program that offers residents an opportunity to turn their food scraps into energy through a residential co-collection of trash and food scraps by their existing trash hauler. This pilot program is being offered in partnership with the Town of Guilford and will be funded by DEEP’s Sustainable Materials Management (SMM) grant awarded to both Towns through a competitive grant application process.
If you are interested in participating in this important pilot program that will have a positive and significant financial and environmental impact, please apply by March 1st.
Food to Clean Energy Application
Up to 350 Madison households will be chosen for this one-year pilot program based on potential trash hauler collection route designs. If selected to participate in the program, residents would continue to use their existing trash hauler but separate their food scraps from household trash placing these items in specially designated colored bags in their garbage bin. The bags will then be sorted at the transfer station with the food scrap bags shipping to Quantum BioPower in Southington for conversion into green energy.
ARPA Property Improvement Grant Program
The Town is pleased to be launching a new Property Improvement Grant Program for Madison businesses that was approved through the Town’s American Rescue Plan Committee. Grants up to $2,500 in reimbursable expenses are available to reimburse a business for minor improvement costs associated with the rehabilitation of a commercial façade, including but not limited to facade repairs, signage, awnings or canopies, exterior lighting, handicap accessibility, and facade landscaping. This grant program is being funded through Madison’s grant award from the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA).

As the Town looks to improve transportation options for residents, we invite you to participate in a survey to gather information about your perceptions and use of public transportation in our community. Responses will support future planning initiatives to better serve the needs of our residents. Thank you in advance for your participation.
Take the Transportation Survey
A reminder that Data Collectors from Vision Appraisal have started to conduct visits to all properties throughout Madison as part of the town-wide property revaluation process. Data Collectors will be wearing identification badges and their vehicles are listed with the Madison Police Department and Assessor’s Office. Homeowners are encouraged to ask for identification prior to admitting anyone on/into the premises. For more information please visit the Town of Madison website www.madisonct.org/revaluation
Fiber Optic Installation Activity
I wanted to alert residents that Frontier Communications is in the process of expanding its fiber optic service to Madison. This is a wired fiber-optic service, not 5G, that will be installed primarily on existing infrastructure. This process will involve a lot of construction activity on lines and poles throughout Madison, including increased truck traffic during the installation process, temporary road blockages, etc. If you have questions or concerns about activity occurring in your neighborhood, please contact Frontier Fiber Service at 1-855-887-0992 or visit getfrontierfiber.com. Frontier is also reaching out to impacted neighborhoods with a postcard with more details. The roll-out of this service is anticipated to be completed by the end of spring.
Have a great weekend Madison!
