  • 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.
  • There were two newly reported cases and zero reported deaths this week in the 31411 zip code. It is important to note that one death previously assigned to 31411 has been reassigned to a different location.

  • Automated System Goes LIVE in November 
  • In July, I wrote the following announcement:
  • Many of you may know that the Main Gate Volunteer Program was terminated when COVID-19 began impacting our local area. These remarkable men and women assisted our community by answering a telephone at the Main Gate and entering guests and vendors into our Access Management software, commonly referred to as ABDi. Their contributions assisted us with approximately 1.2 full-time equivalent employees. Due to the continued high call volume and the desire not to replace the void with adding Security Officers, we will be transitioning to an automated system for the preauthorized guest and vendor telephone line at the Main Gate (912-598-1982). For those residents who still choose to call in their guests and vendors, you now will use an automated attendant. After the automated attendant answers the call, you will enter your Personal Identification Number (PIN), state the name of your guest or vendor, and provide the dates they are authorized to visit. If you are like me and do not care for automated attendants, please consider using www.GateAccess.Net or downloading ABDi’s Gate Access app on your smartphone or tablet to preauthorize your guests and vendors.

President, First Responders
  • The Skidaway Island First Responders (SIFR) are a team of 22 VOLUNTEERS. We work 24/7/365 unless we have to evacuate for a hurricane.
  • We even have a few First Responders who have shown up to EMS calls on their bicycles, in golf carts, and sometimes on foot, if they’re walking and a call occurs close to their location.
  • We are here for this community. And we will get there however we can.

  • One of the many wonderful things about living on Skidaway Island is that we live in the middle of a wildlife sanctuary and have the opportunity to observe and interact with more than 200 birds and countless other wildlife.
  • Where else can you observe a bald eagle while eating breakfast cereal?
