The late Pendleton City Councilor John Brenne now has a room at his old stomping ground.

The council unanimously voted Tuesday to name the city council annex after Brenne, who died in January after 39 years on the council.

The annex is a small room next to city council chambers at Pendleton City Hall with a removable wall. It is primarily used for city council workshops or overflow seating if the city anticipates a large audience for a public meeting.

City Manager Robb Corbett said the council rule book states that any city facility named after a deceased person must have a proposal submitted in writing and undergo a one-year waiting period before assignment.

The council unanimously voted to suspend the rules and name the room after Brenne.
