  • On Friday, May 13, Chatham County adopted a fire fee for unincorporated area. The Chatham County Board of Commissioners voted unanimously to repeal the fire tax adopted last December and replace it with a Fire Services Fee. 
  • The fee will include a flat $100 charge for land and a rate based on the square footage of residents' improved property, which includes all structures that could catch fire and burn. The square footage for each property will be obtained through Chatham County Board of Assessors records.
  • The square footage part of the fee works on a tiered rate system. Properties measuring up to 499 square feet would be charged $100; 500 to 999 square feet, $125; 1,000 to 1,999 square feet, $175; 2,000 to 2,999 square feet, $250; 3,000 to 3,999 square feet, $400.

  • On Wednesday, May 18, in the early morning hours, a resident on Low Country Lane reported three unidentified persons entered his home and stole cash, jewelry, and two phones. Chatham County Police Department (CCPD) responded and searched the neighborhood with negative results. CCPD interviewed the resident and recovered one of the phones in the resident’s backyard.
  • CCPD is actively investigating the incident, and Landings Security is reviewing video footage and assisting CCPD with their investigation. It appears that entry may have been through an unlocked door. The resident was not harmed during the encounter. No similar incidents were reported in the community or the local area.
  • On Saturday, May 14, Security responded to Marsh Rabbit Circle in reference to a stolen property report. Upon arrival, the responding officer spoke with the victim, a guest of a resident. He stated that he left his phone on a table in the pavilion at Landings Community Park. There was $100 in cash and a $25 gift card located inside the phone case cover. When he went back to get the phone, he did not check to see if the cash and gift card still were in the case. He noticed the items were missing the following morning. The victim did not wish to pursue criminal charges. The incident was captured on the video camera system and will be viewed by the victim and his parents in an attempt to identify the person involved.
