Assessed Values and Property Taxes, Sandbags, Earth Day Challenge and Prescribed Burn at Owens Park

April 25, 2019 8:11 AM

I have a couple of updates to share about Assessed Values and Property Taxes, Sandbags, Earth Day Challenge and Prescribed Burn happening today at Owens Park .

Explanation of Assessed Values and Property Taxes

The City Assessor and the Finance Director have prepared a document to help explain assessed values and property taxes.

If you have questions concerning your assessment, please contact the Assessor's Office at or (608) 266-4531.

Sandbag Information Request

The City of Madison Engineering Division would like to gather information about who still has sandbags in the City of Madison in need of collection after last year's flooding.
This information will be used to plan potential curbside collections and sandbag removal strategy. This sign up does not confirm curbside collection. It is to learn how much work and where, if any, there needs to be done to gather remaining sandbags.
The City of Madison posted a form online for the community to fill out. Please fill out the following information fields: name, location, how many sandbags and a point of contact.

Earth Day Challenge - Saturday, April 27

For over 20 years, Madison Parks and the City of Madison have hosted the Earth Day Challenge honoring Earth Day and recruiting volunteers to assist in cleaning up a park. This year, on Saturday, April 27 more than 900 volunteers will be picking up trash, raking, weeding and removing debris at a record 39 Madison parks from 10:00am to 12:00pm. Madison Parks supply each location with gloves and trash bags. Volunteers often bring their own yard tools to assist in the project.

On Saturday, Mayor Rhodes-Conway, Alder McKinney and Parks Superintendent Knepp will kick-off the Elver Park - Earth Day Challenge event at 10:00am from the park shelter, located at 1250 McKenna Blvd.

A number of parks throughout the city (including parks in District 19!) are still in need of volunteers and listed here. Registration is open through 10:00am Friday, April 26. If you miss the registration deadline, you are welcome and encouraged to come out to any park listed.
