TIFTON — Tift County Commission approved the appointment of two residents to government positions – one returning to the seat and the other taking on a new position.

During a relatively short meeting, Tift County Fire Chief Joey Fowler was named the new director of the Tift County branch of the Georgia Emergency Management Agency after its former director, Vickie Hickman, retired. 

Fowler takes over Hickman's duties as director, including overseeing the EMA's online portal and organizing the distribution of grants and funding from the organization to Tift County.

David Bryan, the vice chairman for the Tift County Airport Authority, was  reinstated to his position after his term finished Aug. 30. Bryan was fully supported by the rest of the Airport Authority in returning to the seat.

With no other applicants or nominations for the position, he was reinstated for another four-year term.
