Emergency resolution in Madison County
Flooding triggers vote
The Madison County Board of Commissioners unanimously voted to enact an emergency resolution appropriating funds to deal with flood waters during a regular meeting on June 14, 2022. This resolution allows two mills on a taxable valuation of a county homesite to be allocated. Mills will be levied during fiscal year 2022 and 2023 and will be utilized for expenses related to “damages and repairs caused by flooding and other weather related conditions.” Copies of this resolution will be filed with the County Clerk and Recorder.
The commissioners were also in communication with Senator John Tester’s office to keep the Senator’s office updated as to Madison County’s rising waters after Governor Greg Gianforte today (Tuesday) declared a statewide disaster due to severe flooding in Carbon, Park, and Stillwater counties, as well as flood warnings in other parts of the state.
