CA$H announces referendum campaign

Posted: Updated:
MADISON (WKOW) -- There are concerns over the city of Madison' proposed Judge Doyle Square Project.

The group "Citizens Against Subsidized Hotels", known as CA$H announced a referendum campaign Wednesday, speaking out against the proposed $60 million project.

The "Stop Hotel Boondoggle" referendum would require that proposed TIF loans over 10 million dollars, be put before voters in a referendum for their approval.

"What we are opposing is the households of Madison having to put $600 per household into a record city subsidy for this hotel, the hotel business is doing fine without taxpayers subsidizing it," said CA$H Spokesperson Andy Olsen.

Petition circulation will begin May 1 and end on June 30. The campaign must collect more than 16,000 signatures to place the referendum on November's ballot.
