Plaquemines Parish Government is authorized to approve a revenue line item by parish ordinance thereby amending its budget to appropriate funding to the Misdemeanor Probation Department if the parish government satisfies the requirements of its Charter for Self-Government and complies with the Louisiana Local Government Budget Act. The Louisiana Legislative Auditor would provide the best guidance on how to properly manage any surplus funds. According to the Plaquemines Parish Charter, balances of the Parish's funds with the exception of sinking funds, reserve funds, or other dedicated funds not yet retired, may be transferred by the Parish Council to the general fund of the Parish, unless otherwise prohibited by law.
