Agenda Item
Docket No. 17-971
Advisory Opinion request from Lafourche Parish Government (pop. 96,318) relative to dual employment and dual office holding.
Lafourche Parish currently has two people employed as Region Supervisors and who also hold a second position as Pumpers and one person employed as the Parish Wide Operations Manager who holds a second position as a Pumper. The Parish Wide Operations Manager supervises the Region Supervisors who supervise the Pumpers. In this scenario, the Region Supervisors would supervise themselves as Pumpers and the Parish Wide Operations Manager would supervise the Region Supervisors, but as a Pumper, the Parish Wide Operations Manager would then report to his subordinate, the Region Supervisor.
La. R.S. 42:61 is a Louisiana Statute relative to dual office holding and dual employment. The Statute does not fall within the bounds of the Code of Governmental Ethics.
Decline to render an advisory opinion recommending that the information sought may be obtained from an opinion of the Attorney General.
Assigned Attorney: Greg Thibodeaux
