Loose dogs are a public health and safety hazard. Since it is impossible to determine how well trained any individual dog is, Camden County requires all dogs be leashed and under the care & control of a competent person. Please remember when walking your dog(s) you are required to remove and dispose of any feces your animal deposits.
Pick up any uneaten animal food within 30 minutes, and do not throw scraps or leftovers in the yard or areas near your residence.
To help prevent wildlife from being attracted to your house or yard, do not leave food of any kind outside. If you feed cats/dogs outside, remove uneaten food after 30 minutes.
Placing screens over chimneys, and attic vents help reduce the risks associated with bat colonies, squirrels and other wildlife entering the home through those openings.
Do not let yard waste/debris stay piled up in your yard; it could attract rodents which will attract snakes.
The removal of nuisance wildlife should only be done by a licensed trapper or the Department of Natural Resources. Their number is: 912-264-7237
Contact Animal Control during regular business hours to receive information regarding the procedure to begin a barking dog complaint.
Wildlife inadvertently caught will be released on site. We do not remove wildlife.

The Camden County Board of County Commissioners encourage public participation during regular, special called, and public hearing meetings. Citizens have a number of ways in which to address the Board; during one of the two public comments sections of a regular or special called meeting or by a written statement. The first Public Comment section is dedicated to comments specifically related to items on the agenda. The second Public Comments section is dedicated to anything the public wishes to address. Written comments may be submitted for inclusion in the official record. These comments will not be read aloud, but will be included in the meeting minutes.
Public Hearings are allotted time to speak in favor or in opposition of a specific item, as well as a rebuttal. You may submit a speaker request form online or in person prior to the start of the meeting. This form provides the Commissioners or staff with the ability to follow up with a speaker on his or her concerns. Of course, if a speaker does not complete the form, he or she will not be barred from speaking.
Those who complete a form will be called first and the Chairman will ask if there is anyone else wishing to address the board prior to the close of the Public Comments section. As always, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call the County Clerk’s office at (912) 576-5651.

A Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (SPLOST) is a county-wide tax used to fund capital outlay projects proposed by the county government and participating municipal governments. It may not be used for operating expenses. The tax is imposed when the County Board of Commissioners calls a local referendum and the referendum is subsequently passed by the voters within the county. The tax is collected on all items subject to sales tax.
Yes. In 2013, the voters renewed the SPLOST estimated to bring in $65 million. The SPLOST was approved to be collected for 6 years (the maximum amount of time permitted by law) and will expire June 30th, 2019. Over $29M of the 2013 SPLOST was earmarked for transportation improvements and water & sewer system improvements. The balance of the funds was designated to economic development, general capital obligations, recreation, and public safety improvements.
No. A SPLOST is a consumption tax, not a property tax. It is charged on goods purchased in Camden County, regardless of where the purchaser resides.
No. It will be a continuation of the existing sales tax, remaining at the current level of seven percent. If approved, the current one percent sales tax would be extended for an additional six years.
The Board of Commissioners have called for a SPLOST VIII referendum on March 19, 2019. By placing the referendum before the voters prior to the expiration of the current SPLOST, it allows the county and cities to plan in advance for funding and allows no lapse in funding.
Elected Officials and Senior staff from the County and the cities have been working to identify the long-term capital needs for each community. These needs have been divided into county-wide projects (projects that benefit all communities) and specific unincorporated/municipal projects. Generally, the cost of countywide projects has been deducted from the estimated $55,000,000 to be collected with the balance of the funds being distributed to unincorporated / municipal projects on a population basis.
The list of SPLOST VIII projects is available on the SPLOST VIII web page or in the Sample Ballot Language (PDF).
The project mix in this SPLOST includes a number of capital expenditures which have historically been paid with property taxes. Using SPLOST proceeds, instead of property taxes, will help keep our ad valorem taxes low.
Without an extension of the current SPLOST, there would be a number of lost opportunities for the residents of Camden County and the cities of Kingsland, St. Marys and Woodbine. To fund these opportunities without an extension of the SPLOST, the governing body of each community would have to raise property taxes.
Currently, our county taxes are among the lowest in Southeast Georgia. Passage of the SPLOST extension would allow us to maintain our low county millage rate using a consumption tax, rather than relying solely on property taxes for needed community improvements.
