Some Huntsville leaders took the oath of office Monday morning for another term serving the city.
Huntsville mayor Tommy Battle, along with Councilman Will Culver and Councilman Dr. Richard Showers, were inaugurated on the concert stage at Big Spring Park at 9:00 Monday morning.
The ceremony featured an invocation by Dr. Oscar Montgomery from Union Hill Primitive Baptist church and the Aeolians from Oakwood University. The group sang "From Sea to Shining Sea" before the mayor and councilmen were sworn in.
"We can and we will leave Huntsville a better place in the next four years. Thank you for allowing me to serve as your Mayor. You honor me," said Mayor Battle.
After a closing prayer by Dr. O. Wendell Davis of Union Chapel Missionary church, the ceremony was dismissed.
