§426.  Creation of new local authority in parishes and municipalities excluded from regional or consolidated authority

A.  At any time after a parish or municipality is excluded from an area of operation of a regional or consolidated housing authority, the governing body of the parish or municipality, regardless of the population thereof, may adopt a resolution declaring that there is a need for a housing authority in the parish or municipality, as the case may be.  If the governing body finds such need in the same manner and subject to the same conditions prescribed for this finding in the case of regular parish and municipal authorities, a public body corporate and politic known as the housing authority of the parish or the municipality shall exist therefor.

B.  Such an authority possesses the same powers, duties, and functions as a regularly created parish or municipal authority, as the case may be, and is subject to the provisions of this Part applicable thereto.

C.  Nothing in this Part prevents the parish or municipality from thereafter being included within the area of operation of a regional or consolidated housing authority.
