§5586. Use of excess fees by civil sheriff Orleans Parish
In the event the fees and commissions authorized by R.S. 13:5530 exceed the necessary expense of the civil sheriff in the efficient performance of his duties as herein provided, the excess shall not be drawn or otherwise expended by the civil sheriff, except as herein provided, but shall remain in the civil sheriff's salary fund. However, this excess may be expended by the civil sheriff in any succeeding year in which the civil sheriff's salary fund is insufficient to defray current salaries and expenses or where circumstances necessitate additional deputies or additional expenses to be incurred for the efficient performance of all duties imposed by law on the civil sheriff. The civil sheriff at the end of each four-year term or, in case of his reelection, on the thirtieth day of June following shall remit to the state treasurer for credit to the general fund any excess or surplus remaining in the civil sheriff's salary fund. However, there may be retained in the civil sheriff's salary fund an amount not to exceed one-third of the amount of the revenues of the last year of the term of office, and the amount so retained shall be used as a revolving fund to assist in financing the operation of the office and for purchasing equipment.
