Tybee Island officials have been receiving lots of negative feedback about a proposal to track visitors with cameras. The beachfront city is considering recording the license plate numbers of all the cars going on and off the island. But Mayor Jason Buelterman says officials may reconsider in light of public opinion.
The US Army Corp of Engineers offered to give Tybee Island some of the sand that it plans to dredge up from the bottom of the Savannah River during a proposed harbor deepening. But Tybee Island's city council members have rejected the offer, citing beach aesthetic and safety concerns.
The Mayor of Tybee Island says, the settlement brings the case to a close. Two former Tybee Island police officers, however, still face charges related to the incident. The lawsuit stemmed from an incident in May when an autistic teenager was stunned for appearing drunk and unresponsive outside an island bar.
