A former Jefferson Parish sheriff's deputy will be Arnaudville's next police chief.
Eddy Lecompte edged out current interim chief Toby Wetzel by 17 votes, claiming 144 ballots (53%) to Wetzel's 127 (47%).
The seat was vacated in late 2013 when former chief Richard Mizzi resigned from office.
Arnaudville residents will once again vote on the position in November when candidates run for a full four-year term.
