The City of Madison and City of Fitchburg will absorb the Town of Madison on or before Oct. 31, 2022. A number of service changes will occur for the incoming attached municipality. The progression toward the official day of attachment for the Town of Madison is important from a communication standpoint for the residents who will be impacted. It is also important for the City of Madison and Fitchburg, because the respective municipalities want the Town of Madison residents, businesses and property owners to feel welcome, prepared and informed.
