§806. Budget and revenues
A. The governing authorities of the parishes within the multiparish prison area shall appropriate, in proportion to the assessed valuation of the property of the parishes, an amount annually which, when added to the revenues of the multiparish prison will be sufficient to properly conduct the multiparish prison and to provide the necessary operational equipment. The first budget shall equal the amount expended for the keeping, feeding, and clothing of prisoners in each prison during the previous year and thereafter the annual budget shall be estimated on the basis of the budget of the preceding year.
B. The revenues derived from farming or other operations shall be applied to the operation of the multiparish prison. Any surplus revenues of the multiparish prison not needed for the succeeding calendar year may be paid into the general fund of the governing authorities of the parishes composing the multiparish prison area in proportion to the assessment of the parishes as shown by the last filed assessment roll of each.
