The city of Dunbar has a new mayor.
Terry Greenlee was sworn-in as mayor early Monday morning outside of Dunbar City Hall. Dozens of community members came out to watch as city council members also took the oath of office.
The Dunbar native says h is ready to serve the city for the next four years.
"My job is going to be to revitalize our city, try to bring more business in, get rid of the dilapidated housing," the Democrat said. "And each city this size, bigger or smaller, has drug issues. We're going to work on that."
Linda Greenlee, the mayor's wife, held the Bible during his swearing-in ceremony.
Former mayor Jack Yeager said he is glad he could hand over the reins of the city, which he said is fiscally, socially and politically stable.
