CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Outgoing Cheyenne Mayor Rick Kaysen will lead the Wyoming Association of Municipalities after he hands over his position to Mayor-elect Marian Orr Jan. 3.

The Wyoming News Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/2i4q0LA ) that Kaysen will become the association's interim executive director on Jan. 4. The move comes after the group's executive director, Shelley Simonton, announced earlier this week she's resigning due to personal reasons.

Kaysen says he was tapped for the interim position during the association's Wednesday board meeting.

The mayor has been a member of the municipalities group for eight years and has served on its board most of his time in office.

Kaysen will serve in his new role through June 30, when the board is expected to name a permanent replacement for Simonton.
