New Tybee Island City Council members sworn in

Posted: Updated:

The City of Tybee Island held an inauguration ceremony Thursday to swear in new City Council members.

William Garbett, Montgomery Parks and Robert Callan all took the oath. One of the first issues they have to tackle is beach renourishment.

It's not that it's such a complex project, but it requires a lot of money and requires participation by many government parties to come up with all the funds," said new council member Robert Callahan. "Of course, Tybee has paid a fair share and the state has committed funding. What we are waiting on right now is the federal government."

A reception was also held for the new council members following the swearing in.
