Strategic Plan Survey Extended to July 7th

Please note that the deadline for the Town’s  Strategic Plan Survey has been extended to July 7, 2023.   Your voice is a very important part of the Town’s strategic planning process which was launched earlier this year.  The Strategic Plan will include a Community Vision, the Mission of the Town, Strategic Priorities and Key Goals that will set the direction for our work in coming years and align the Town in purpose and work. Let your voice be heard by taking the survey!

START SURVEY

For more information about the Strategic Planning process and to keep up to date on meetings relating to this effort, check out our webpage dedicated to this initiative: www.madisonct.org/strategicplan

Special Event Parking Policies at Town Beaches for July4th Weekend 

On Friday, June 30th, Beach Parking Passes will only be sold at the Madison Chamber of Commerce Building at 12 School Street from 8:30 a.m. until 12 noon.  No passes will be sold in person again until Wednesday, July 5th at the regular location at the Surf Club office.  Please make sure to purchase your parking pass prior to June 30th if you want to visit the Town beaches during the holiday weekend.  Residents will be able to purchase online and show your receipt at the check point.

Please note that purchase of a beach sticker or a daily parking pass does not guarantee parking availability.  Once a parking lot is filled, all cars will be turned away regardless of a pass so please plan accordingly.  Visitors and residents can request a refund for a daily parking pass if it is unused.  

Parking at Lowry Field over the holiday weekend will require a beach sticker or daily parking pass. Lowry will be staffed from 8:30 a.m. until 9:30 p.m. on Friday, July 1st, and from 8:30 a.m. – 5 p.m. on Saturday, Sunday, and Monday.

Madison Fireworks Organization

Please consider donating to the Madison Fireworks Organization. This organization completely underwrites the July 4th Fireworks show for the Town of Madison, through individual donations. Aside from the generous donation of police services from the town, each year they raise over $50,000 to provide a wonderful experience for our citizens and visitors over the festive July 4th weekend.

The 2022 Grand List tax bills were mailed on June 21, 2023.  The first installment of tax is due July 1, 2023 and the last day to pay without penalty is August 1, 2023.  The tax office is accepting payments in person, by mail, and through the Tax Payment Drop Box (located on the exterior wall of the Tax Collector’s Office).  Tax bills are also viewable and payable online at www.madisonct.org/taxpayments.

Dog Licenses  

I want to remind Madison dog owners that June is dog licensing month in Connecticut. This year the Town is offering many options to obtain a license, including an online renewal of previous licenses.  Please visit the Town Clerk’s website or call 203-245-5672 for more information.

If you are a Vietnam-Era or/and Korean War Veteran living in the Town of Madison you should have received a letter inviting you and your family to a Veterans Awards Ceremony scheduled for June 28th at 5:00 p.m. in the gymnasium at Daniel Hand High School. If you have not yet RSVP'd or if you did not receive a letter, please RSVP to the First Selectwoman's Office with a list of attendees to Jaclyn Lehet at lehetj@madisonct.org or calling (203) 245-5602.
