Laurel Chief Administrator now says he'll stay on board

Laurel Chief Administrator Dennis Keveryn has decided to take his punishment and continue working for the city.

Laurel Mayor Melvin Mack placed him on a three day suspension, which began Monday.

Mayor Mack made the decision last Thursday after Keveryn got into a verbal altercation with Ward Seven Councilman Trey Chin over a policy.

Mayor Mack said he doesn't have the power to reprimand an elected official; however, Keveryn is a city employee, therefore he need to be punished for his actions.

Keveryn returns to work on Thursday.
