"I believe there are more instances of the abridgement of freedom
of the people by gradual and silent encroachments by those
in power, than by violent and sudden usurpations."
- James Madison,
speech at the Virginia Constitutional Convention,
June 6th, 1788
Sitting at the new “accessible” counter in the Madison County Treasurer’s Office are Cathy Contarino, Executive Director of IMPACT CIL, an Alton-based agency which assists people with disabilities, Kurt Prenzler, CPA, Madison County Treasurer, and Jeremy Plank, CPA, Chief Deputy Treasurer.

We have begun mailing the property tax bills for tax year 2011. With the high price of gas, we have improved a payment option to save you gas, time and money:
Online bill pay. Now electronic. You control this from the web site of your financial institution.
As always, you may pay by mail, pay at many participating local financial institutions (before Jan 31, 2013), and you are always welcome to pay in the Treasurer’s Office, in the County Administration Building, at 157 N. Main Street, Suite 125, Edwardsville.
We have also lowered part of our front counter by 12 inches, making it “accessible” for those taxpayers who are disabled or who simply prefer to transact their business sitting at a desk, rather than standing at a counter.
We hope these changes make doing business with the Treasurer’s office more comfortable, convenient and secure.
Kurt Prenzler, CPA
Madison County Treasurer
