§2485.11. Determination of population
The population of the territorial jurisdiction of the court shall be determined by the last regular federal census or special census, conducted as otherwise provided by law. In the event of deactivation of Fort Polk or if for any other reason there is a serious or substantial depletion in actual population within the territorial jurisdiction of the court, the governing body of the town or city of Leesville and the police jury of the parish of Vernon, Louisiana, may adopt a proper resolution or ordinance requiring the city court, insofar as the salaries of its officers are concerned, to revert to and be governed by the population as determined by the last regular federal census.
