First Selectwoman's Community Update

First Selectwoman Community Update - Hanukkah

Assessment Notices 

Please note that In accordance with Connecticut General Statutes, the Town of Madison is completing a Revaluation of all real property for the October 1, 2023 Grand List.  New assessment notices have been mailed out.  

DO NOT multiply your new assessment by the current mill rate.  The new mill rate will be determined as part of the budget process and the new grand list in the Spring of 2024. Your new proposed assessment is based on 70% of market value as of October 1, 2023. 

Reassessment is a revenue-neutral process.  A significant increase/decrease in a property’s assessed value will not result in an equivalent increase/decrease in the property’s taxes.   The total amount the town needs to collect through taxes is determined by the town budget regardless of whether a reassessment takes place.  Please visit the Town Assessor’s website for additional information.


Arthritis Foundation Walk 

This Sunday, December 10th the Arthritis Foundation walk will take place at the Surf Club starting at 7 a.m. until 12 noon. As always, please use extra caution when entering the Surf Club and be aware of the participants.


Strategic Plan Informational Session

The Town of Madison will be holding a second Public Informational Meeting on Wednesday, December 13th at 5:30 p.m., in the Hammonasset Room, at Town Campus, and remote via Zoom to discuss a draft of the Town’s Strategic Plan. This draft plan is a result of community feedback received over the last 6 months through community surveys, focus groups, a visioning session, and a leadership retreat. It lays out a Town vision and mission statement and identifies our Strategic Goals and Objectives in Key Focus areas. We welcome your feedback on this draft document. Note that this draft does not include the implementation plan for Town government, which will be forthcoming. For further information including the meeting link and to view the proposed plan please visit the town website
