For the leaseholders on Navarre Beach, Dec. 22 will mark the end of an era. After 15 years of working at the Navarre Beach Water Department and 18 years as a county employee, Ferrell Tibbs will retire.
Tibbs has worked for Navarre Beach Water & Sewer Department since December 1997. “I was working in the Clerk of Courts office, when a friend called telling me of a job opening at Navarre Beach Water and Sewer Department,” Tibbs said. “I thought it would be great to get paid to go to the beach every day. I applied for the position and when Terry Wallace, Navarre Beach Supervisor, called for an interview, I was hopeful. The rest, as they say, is history."
