PORT ALLEN - Council members agreed that one of their first priorities in the wake of Mayor Deedy Slaughter's recall is to take another stab at adopting a 2013-14 budget before city departments run out of money.

In Saturday's election, 57 percent of Port Allen voters supported a grass roots effort to remove Slaughter from office. 43 percent voted against it.

State law requires that Slaughter step down as mayor by Nov. 25 unless she contests the election. Once she leaves office, the council has 20 days to appoint an interim mayor.
