A grassroots petition that Madison County taxpayers began circulating earlier this week seeks to give voters a say on permanently reducing the maximum property tax rate.

Madison County Treasurer Kurt Prenzler, a Republican running for County Board Chairman in November, is heading up the effort.

“Every year, the county board pads the budget,” he said. “Padding the budget has produced a three to four million dollar surplus. We don’t think it’s right that the county is levying taxes that we don’t need. This isn’t a freeze. We want a permanent reduction.”
