In order for a municipality or parish to establish a local housing authority which may conduct business and exercise its powers, the governing body of such municipality or parish desiring to establish such authority shall adopt a resolution declaring, in substance, that there is a need for a local housing authority in said municipality or parish because there exists a shortage of decent, safe, and sanitary housing in the municipality or parish or that such housing is not affordable to all residents thereof, regardless of income.  No further action or findings shall be necessary.  Upon the adoption of the resolution, the local housing authority shall be established and shall have perpetual existence unless dissolved in accordance with law.

Amended by Acts 1950, No. 401, §4; Acts 1997, No. 1188, §1.
