County discusses funding, revenues

Posted

The Madison County Commissioners’ Court took in a big windfall in January on the heels of its tax bill mailing.

Tax Collector/Assessor Karen Lane told commissioners on Monday the county received $2,840,653.12 in tax payments, and $23,180 in other fees, during the month of January.

Currently, the county is at around 85 percent in collections for the year, she said.

Reports from County Clerk Susanne Morris also show the county received $27,844.25 in fees in the Clerk’s Office, and $1,724 in fees from Criminal Court.

Additionally, County Judge Tony Leago reported that the county is the recipient of $2 million in grants for road repairs in Precincts 3 and 4.

In Precinct 3, the roads slated for repair are Mathis Meadows and Muskgrove; in Precinct 4, the roads to be repaired are Strawther, Bundic and Red Oak.

In the only matter requiring a vote, commissioners Carl Cannon, David Pohorelsky and Carl Wiseman approved the annual District Attorney’s Racial Profiling Report, which states that the agency does not make traffic stops as part of its routine duties.

Commissioner Ricky Driskell was absent from Monday’s meeting.
