§5752. Authority of coroners to form, join, and participate in interlocal risk management agency; establishment of self-insurance fund; contributions; records
A. Any two or more coroners may make and execute an intergovernmental agreement among themselves to establish an interlocal risk management program, to become members of an interlocal risk management agency, to pool their public liability risks in whole or in part with each other, and to establish a group self-insurance fund. The interlocal risk management agency, once established, may designate the Louisiana Coroners' Association to administer any group self-insurance fund so established and to administer the terms and conditions of any interlocal risk management program entered into between participating coroners. The agency may instead elect to designate another public or private entity to administer the terms and conditions of the interlocal risk management program but only the interlocal risk management agency or the Louisiana Coroners' Association may administer the group self-insurance fund.
B. Contributions of participating coroners to the group self-insurance fund are authorized to be paid from any funds appropriated for the payment of all expenses of their offices.
C. Any coroner participating in an interlocal risk management program and agency pursuant to this Section and for whom a contribution is made on behalf of his employee is authorized to secure from the agency and file on behalf of his employee a certificate of employee participation in the program and the agency in lieu of furnishing a surety bond which the law may require.
D. All books, records, and files maintained by a third party for the intergovernmental risk management agency, including but not limited to audit data and all active and inactive claims files, shall at all times be the sole property of the agency and shall be surrendered immediately to the agency upon demand.
