Laurel mayor selects temporary CAO

Laurel Mayor Melvin Mack has selected a temporary chief administrative officer.

Former Chief Administrative Officer Dennis Keveryn will serve the city for the next five months.

Mack said Keveryn will do the job until after the election but the search for a full-time CAO is still underway.

Keveryn served under former mayor Susan Vincent from 1998 to 2003. Mack has called a special call meeting for Friday morning to approve Keveryn.

If approved by the council, Keveryn will start work no later than Monday morning.
