Ordinance expected to set Slaughter's pay at $85k
PORT ALLEN- The mayor's pay will likely be discussed at a town council meeting Wednesday evening, since it is on the agenda.
An ordinance is expected to be introduced to set Mayor Deedy Slaughter's salary at about $85,000. She is currently collecting that amount despite that the council reduced it previously. Leaders dropped it some $20,000.
But, a judge ruled it was not dropped correctly and Slaughter could continue to collect the highest amount if the city council can work the figure into the budget.
Once it is introduced, the salary vote would come at the next meeting in August.
