PORT ALLEN- Change was the topic of conversation Wednesday night as Richard Lee III sat in the mayor's chair, leading his first council meeting since becoming mayor.

Since taking office after winning an election in April, defeating former mayor Deedy Slaughter, Lee has talked with council members about everyone getting on the same page. Among the issues he wanted to tackle, together, was the city's budget.

Slaughter and the council could rarely get along on budget issues.

"It's a positive atmosphere with the public as we move forward," Lee said. "We expect the city to grow and prosper in a positive direction."
