AP Wire: "New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin and two city council members said Friday they have agreed on temporary housing sites for thousands of families that requested assistance after Hurricane Katrina.

Gov. Kathleen Blanco brought in a mediator and representatives of the Federal Emergency Management Agency to meet with Nagin and the council members at the governor's home.

The mayor and council had disagreed over where the travel trailers would be placed, and the head of FEMA blamed the dispute for holding up the placement of thousands of temporary homes."
