Fiscal Note

No City appropriation required.


Amending the effective date of Section 15.01(598) of the Madison General Ordinances entitled “City Boundaries" attaching the Borman-Lounsbury Attachment.


DRAFTER'S ANALYSIS:  This amendment changes the effective date of the ordinance from June 1, 2021 to April 10, 2022. While the original ordinance set an effective date of June 1, 2021, the Cooperative Plan with the Town of Middleton, and the terms of the attachment agreement, the attachment won’t actually go into effect until April 10, 2022.  Thus, this amendment is necessary to make the delayed attachment ordinance consistent with the Cooperative Plan and terms of the attachment agreement.
