Palm Coast - Palm Coast resident Vincent T. Lyon, a guardianship and probate litigation attorney with the Chiumento Dwyer Hertel Grant and Kistemaker law firm, was appointed Tuesday to complete Steve Nobile's term of office for the Palm Coast City Council District 4 seat.

Lyon was sworn in Tuesday evening, just after the Palm Coast City Council selected him to serve as their fellow new Council member. He will serve until November, when a newly elected Council Member will take office for a four-year term. The primary election is scheduled for Aug. 28, and the general election will be Nov. 6.

After the vote Tuesday, Lyon thanked the Council for their confidence in him. "I hope to live up to the expectations and the high goals that the City has," he said.

Lyon has been a resident of Palm Coast for 51/2 years and is active in business and trade groups and charitable organizations including the Rotary Club of Flagler County (current director and chair of the By-laws Committee), Flagler County Bar Association (past president), Flagler County Chamber of Commerce, Community Cats of Palm Coast, Inns of Court, and the Estate Planning Council of the Fun Coast. He is a graduate of the City of Palm Coast's Citizen's Academy.

Lyon earned his juris doctor from The George Washington University Law School after receiving his undergraduate degree from Cornell University and a master's from the University of Central Oklahoma.
