(2) To enter into management agreements whereby the law enforcement district would manage a law enforcement facility in the respective parish, including but not limited to publicly or privately owned detention facilities in the parish. A management agreement entered into by a law enforcement district shall not constitute a debt or obligation of the general credit or revenues of the law enforcement district and any payments due by the law enforcement district to the owners of the facility managed thereunder shall be payable only out of the revenues derived from the operation of the facility so managed.
