OPINION 09-0112

The Livingston Parish Council may not use tax proceeds dedicated “to construct,
acquire, extend, expand, improve, maintain, and operate roads, bridges, and related
road drainage throughout the Parish” in order to pay for the removal of debris from
major drainage canals and ditches located within the Parish, but which are not adjacent
to roads.


Attorney General Opinion

OPINION 08-0339


It is the opinion of this office that it is not permissible for the Parish Council
to use tax proceeds dedicated “to construct, acquire, extend, expand,
improve, maintain, and operate roads, bridges, and related road drainage
throughout the Parish” in order to pay for the paving of public property
used solely as a parking lot and which has no integral connexity to a public
road, bridge or related road drainage.


Attorney General Opinion
September 10, 2009
OPINION 09-0107

The Livingston Parish President is not bound to implement
the operating budget amendments purportedly adopted in
Sections 1, 2, 6, 7 and 8 of Livingston Parish Ordinance 09-
06 or the transfer of appropriations within the OEP fund
related to the OEP Director’s Salary contained in Section 4 of
that ordinance. However, given the conflicting rulings
between the First and Fourth Circuit Courts of Appeal
regarding the interpretation of La. R.S. 39:1310, we are
unable to provide a definitive answer as to whether the
president is bound to implement the reduction of
appropriations contained in Section 3 of Livingston Parish
Ordinance 09-06 or the elimination of transfers of
appropriations between funds as set forth in Sections 4 and 5
of that ordinance.
