BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - We'll have to wait another week to find out if the Biloxi City Council approves the mayor's nomination for public works director.

Mayor A.J. Holloway is pushing to make Dan Gaillet Biloxi's new streets and drainage chief.

City Spokesman Vincent Creel told WLOX News the council was supposed to vote on the proposal Tuesday. But three of the councilmen were absent from the meeting, so they decided to wait until the entire council was present to vote.

Gaillet led the Jackson Public Works Department from 2010 until just last month.

Biloxi's public works director position has been vacant for almost a year now.
