Next year is when we hold our community-wide survey, where we receive input from our owners on what services are important to them, along with satisfaction levels. As noted in the General Manager’s column, we certainly will be addressing the unsuccessful Property Owner Dues (Assessment) proposal to understand better what changes our community wants to see so that a successful vote can be held in the future.
The Reserve Fund is a restricted fund for major capital replacements, such as roads, paths, storm drains, bridges, lagoon structures, piers, and heavy equipment and machinery. The funds are not subject to federal or state income taxes when used for this purpose. The ability to accumulate funds for needed capital replacements on a tax-free basis represents a significant economic benefit to our property owners.
Coyotes resemble a small dog or fox and are known for how well they adapt and thrive in a variety of habitats wherever water, food, and shelter can be found. For many decades, coyotes have inhabited Wassaw, Ossabaw, and Green Island. It comes as no surprise that they tend to travel through Skidaway Island from time-to-time.
For the past several weeks, Landing Association Public Works has received visual confirmation (via trail cameras) of coyote sightings in various areas of the community.

The final food truck event of 2018 will be one for the record books! Not only will there be delicious treats from Barnes, Blowin’ Smoke, King of Pops, Little Diddle’s Sweetery, and Yoshi’s Kitchen, but the Christy Alan Band will be playing your favorite songs and the SEC Championship game featuring the universities of Alabama and Georgia will be on the big screen. Kids can also have fun by getting their faces painted and enjoying the bounce house.
Tis the season for eating turkey! According to a study done by the University of Illinois Extension Center, 46 million turkeys are eaten in the United States each Thanksgiving, 22 million on Christmas, and 19 million on Easter.
