Signed FIDCO Waivers
Starting in 2020, it will be a requirement to have an annually signed FIDCO Waiver for all vehicles, Residential and Commercial, accessing FIDCO property. The FIDCO Waiver is signed at the time of sticker purchase – either online or at the Gate House.
Renters (on both the East or West End) are not eligible for Guest Passes, no matter the duration of their rental. All island Renters who wish to access the East End must purchase a vehicle sticker and sign the FIDCO Wavier.
Holders of Residential Vehicle Stickers (only) may request a Guest Pass for a guest vehicle for up to a total of 10 days per season. All Guest Passes must be obtained at the Gate House. The Guest Pass will be registered to a specific vehicle, and once that vehicle exceeds the maximum 10 days, the vehicle will need to purchase a sticker in order to continue to have access to the East End.
An important item of note: as part of the FIDCO Waiver, Residential Vehicle Sticker owners are legally responsible for the actions of their Guests, anyone driving their car, and for any individuals for whom they purchase stickers. Hosts will be required to sign the Waiver on behalf of their Guest, accepting responsibility for them. We ask hosts to please assist us in making Guests fully aware of speed limits, rules and regulations regarding use of FIDCO roads as well as the Recreational Path.
If you are renting your property the tenants are not considered guests. Please be advised by obtaining a guest pass for rental tenants is against FIDCO policy.
FIDCO stickers may be purchased with cash, check or credit card (Visa and MasterCard only). Checks should be made payable to FIDCO and mailed with one application for each vehicle to FIDCO, Box 604, Fishers Island, NY 06390.
