A parish operating under a home rule charter that specifically authorizes it to hire special counsel does not have to follow the requirements of La. R.S. 42:263 when hiring special counsel. Further, such a parish may pay special counsel a monthly fee if it ensures the payment is reasonable and necessary and will not violate La. Const. art. VII 14.
