BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Kenner City Councilman Mike Sigur will serve as the city’s acting mayor through June after Mike Yenni leaves his mayoral post and is sworn in as Jefferson Parish president on Jan. 6.

The New Orleans Advocate report (https://bit.ly/1ObFP7M) the city council on Thursday also decided that member Dominick Impastato will succeed Sigur beginning July 1 and serve as acting mayor until a permanent replacement for Yenni can be elected. The council called for that election to be held in early November.

The council further appointed local businessman Brian Brennan to temporarily fill a seat being vacated by Keith Conley, an at-large member who will step down Jan. 6 to become a top official in Yenni’s parish administration.

Yenni in October defeated four opponents to succeed outgoing Parish President John Young.
