It is our opinion that, because 1) the Plaquemines Parish Government has the
authority to conduct levee repairs, 2) the levee repairs serve a public
purpose, and 3)
the Parish will greatly benefit from the use of the funds, the Plaquemines
Government's use of public funds to repair the private levees is not a
violation of the
restriction against the donation of public funds under La. Const. Art. VII,
Sec. 14(A).
Op to Mr. I. F. "Jiff" Hingle, Sheriff, Plaquemines Parish Sheriff and Tax
Office, Belle Chasse, LA
Date Released: June 24, 2010
