Working Together started this petition to Madison County KY Fiscal Court

As Madison County residents are aware, the proposed 139% Madison County tax increase was petitioned and ultimately placed on the ballot for November 2020.   

Now, the Madison County Fiscal Court has decided to sell several properties owned by Madison County, described in brevity, under Resolution 19-36. 

The plan to sell county property is vaguely described in the aforementioned Resolution 19-36, absent extensive details, including, but not limited to:

. Full and complete transparency.

. Supporting rationale for the planned sale of each property.

. There is no plan included to communicate with residents directly impacted by the sale(s). No action has been taken to protect those residents from realizing  damage to their own homes - for many, their only investment.

The current, and continued reckless and irresponsible behavior of the Madison County Fiscal Court has placed residents at great risk of loss, including, but not limited to the following conditions:

. A tremendous loss to their home values and the integrity of their neighborhoods, overall.  For many, their primary investment is "home", supporting their spouse, children, grandchildren, parents, and grandparents to name several.

. Life-long equity preserved, and intended to support the quality of life and education of hard-working families is at great risk and likely will be reduced, or eliminated.  

. Threatening family peace of mind, a reward of successful family investment, reducing the reward for careful planning that supports children, education, retirement and overall quality of life.

Madison County's "Land-Mine" approach to taxation (representing "no taxes due" for over a decade followed by a "surprise accrued 139% tax increase") coupled with the condescending, irresponsible manner of the rushed,  non-transparent sale of Madison County property warrant this Petition.  This initiative is just one of multiple other community actions being taken to stop the path of destruction growing at the hand of Madison County Fiscal Court.

There are governing entities that are proactive, those that are reactive.  The plethora of major financial "bombs" being dropped on our fine community is evidence of an inactive government.

. Madison County taxpayers want the current Resolution 19-36 ceased at once.  Before considering any kind of sale the impacted Madison County taxpayer must be considered, with full transparency, full disclosure of all details, care, and protection of the taxpayer's home, equity, and neighborhood, and must be in the forefront "in the interest of ALL taxpayers".

.Families, investors, homes, and historic properties that are directly impacted by any of the proposed sales must receive disclosures, assistance to each homeowner to fully protect their own investments, as the County proceeds with the sale of property in a responsible and transparent fashion.

Madison County Residents, we thank you for your time in reviewing and executing this Petition, the first of several steps in addressing the urgent matter described herein.  We are grateful.
