FOLLY BEACH — Voters elected William Farley to the Folly Beach City Council in a runoff election Tuesday.
Unofficial returns gave Farley 464 votes to D. Keith Bolus' 247 votes for a seat on the at-large nonpartisan council, according to the county election commission.
Farley, 57, is a retired police chief from North Carolina and current member of the Folly Beach Public Safety beach patrol.
Bolus, 59, is a lawyer who has lived on the island full time since 1986.
During the earlier April 3 election, a third of the city’s nearly 2,500 voters turned out to cast ballots for the mayor and three open council seats.
Tim Goodwin ran unopposed for his third term as mayor.
