Port Allen Mayor Deedy Slaughter vetoed a new ordinance that would redefine who are the city's department heads.

The decision comes after months of bickering and court battles between the mayor and the city's chief financial officer Audrey McCain.

The city council would have to vote to override or accept her decision with a 4 of 5 vote to over ride it.

Slaughter said the vote could happen at the council's first meeting in June.
