All applications must be made on the form prescribed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' standard permit. All applications for uses of local concern should be submitted to the Office of the Parish President at the Courthouse in Convent, Louisiana.


All applications for uses of local concern shall be accompanied by an application fee. For projects requiring a determination on the affects of the proposed project, such as letters of no objection, the fee shall be $20.
