Texas mayor for day, 11, renames street for Bieber

FORNEY, TX

A ceremony is planned Tuesday in Forney for a temporary sign designating Justin Bieber Way.

City Manager Brian Brooks says the request came from 11-year-old Caroline Gonzalez. She's active in student council, recycling and community service projects. Her father submitted a winning essay in the contest to get young people interested in municipal government.

Brooks told The Associated Press that city officials were unable to reach a representative for Bieber to invite him to Forney, about 15 miles east of Dallas.

Brooks says the Justin Bieber Way sign was made by a city department at a cost of about $20.
