PORT ALLEN, LA (WAFB) - A legislative audit recommends the city of Port Allen seek a court ruling to resolve the question of Mayor Demetric "Deedy" Slaughter's salary because the city council may not have properly set the salary in its budget ordinances.

The report states Slaughter has been receiving a $6,000 annual car allowance that was neither budgeted nor approved by a council-passed ordinance.

Slaughter and the legislative auditor will comment on the report in the 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. newscasts.
