A swearing-in ceremony was held Monday evening.
In late September, the towns of Roddickton and Bide Arm signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the Department of Municipal Affairs to amalgamate.
An election on Dec. 9 determined that a new town would be led under the direction of Mayor Ray Norman, who was the former mayor of Roddickton. Norman was elected by acclamation, as was Shanna Randell for Ward One and Tennis Cassell for Ward Two. The remaining four at-large council seats were won by Wade Reid, Kevin Cassell, Janice Pilgrim and Tony Randell.
The Town of Roddickton-Bide Arm became effective Jan. 1.
"This is a very important milestone for the new municipality of Roddickton/Bide Arm," said Norman. "We have just sworn in a very strong and capable council and I am confident 2009 will be a very exciting year for this new community."
