  • By now, some residents may have received bills from Chatham County for the new fire fee. Although the bills have taken some time to arrive, the initial decision was made by the County on May 13, 2022 to adopt a fire fee for unincorporated areas. 
  • The Chatham County Board of Commissioners voted unanimously to repeal the fire tax adopted in December 2021, and replace it with a Fire Services Fee.
  • However, it took some time to finalize the fee structure and issue invoices.
  • Share your article, video, and social media post suggestions with our team.

  • As Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday approaches, Skidaway Audubon is reaching out to the community on Giving Tuesday...an international day of giving when caring donors support their favorite causes.

  • Giving Tuesday, set for November 29, began 10 years ago as a philanthropic counterpart to Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Now observed in more than 70 countries, it is the biggest giving movement in the world.

  • For the first time, Skidaway Audubon is participating in Giving Tuesday, as it depends on donations to carry out its numerous programs and initiatives dedicated to enhancing, conserving, and protecting the island’s unique environment.
