Madison City Commission approves increase in special maintenance fee
City of Madison

The Madison City Commission has approved the renewal of the city’s special maintenance fee, with a slight increase.  The resolution approved by commissioners during their meeting on Monday will increase the annual fee to $1.10 per front foot, with a 125 foot maximum per lot.  The fee is paid by residents and goes toward maintaining and repairing city streets.  

City Administrator Jameson Berreth said that the special maintenance fee has been at one dollar per front foot for several years, and Mayor Roy Lindsay proposed the increase.  Lindsay explained why he would like to see the increase.

City Finance Officer Sonya Wilt said the maximum that a property owner will need to pay is $137.50.

The city’s special maintenance fee is reviewed and renewed by the commission on an annual basis.
