MADISON, NJ - To provide Madison residents and business owners with some upfront financial support in response to COVID-19, Madison Mayor Robert Conley will be asking the Council to aprove some fiscal actions at the March 30 Council Meeting.
"We are all aware of the financial burden that is being imposed upon all of our businesses, as well as many residents who have been displaced from work", Conlye said. "With these fiscal actions – which is just a start – I hope that this can give some residents a ‘sigh of relief’ during this difficult time,”
The fiscal actions that the Mayor is asking for include:
- No interest or penalty for late property tax and utility payments
- No curtailment of utility services for non-payment
- Electric rebates have been doubled to $400 (retroactive to January 1, 2020
- Reasonsable payment plans for utility arrears with no penalty or interest
- $200,000 has been allocated from surplus for dedicated COVID-19 response
“We never want to see a resident or business struggle, and when this is all over, Madison will rally together – as we typically do – to welcome back our businesses as they re-open their doors,” said Conley.
