2017 Louisiana Laws
TITLE 13 - Courts and Judicial Procedure
RS 13:787 - Supplements
(A) When the fees and charges collected during any month by the clerk are insufficient to pay his normal compensation, clerical salaries and other necessary expenses, and there is no surplus from fees and charges collected during previous months from which the deficiency can be defrayed, the police jury of the parish may supplement the fees and charges by paying to the clerk's salary fund from the parish treasury the amount of the deficiency. In no case in any one fiscal year shall such supplements by the police jury exceed in the aggregate the sum of five thousand dollars.
(B) Whenever a police jury exercises the discretion vested in it by R.S. 13:786, the total amount received by the clerk shall include the salary of any deputy clerk or other clerks who may be appointed by him, but shall not include the cost of purchasing permanent record books.
(C) Whenever a police jury exercises the discretion vested in it by R.S. 13:786, the clerk shall furnish to the police jury, before the supplement is made, a sworn itemized statement of all fees and charges collected by him each month, in order that the police jury may ascertain the amount to be paid as supplement.
