§5526. Drawing monthly salary
The monthly salary and allowance of the sheriff and ex officio tax collector shall be drawn by him from the sheriff's general fund. Except as authorized in R.S. 13:5523, he shall not draw the monthly salary and allowance unless the same is on deposit to the credit of the sheriff's general fund. If the salary and allowance of any month may not be drawn for the reason that the sheriff's general fund has an insufficient amount, the deficit may be made up and drawn along with any subsequent salary and allowance.
Amended by Acts 1977, No. 591, §1; Redesignated from R.S. 33:1425 pursuant to Acts 2011, No. 248, §3.
