  • 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.
