Lenfant's resignation, which was effective immediately, comes at a time when the parish government is trying to cut costs. Voters have rejected a pair of sales tax renewals to fund operations of the parish courthouse and jail for a third time. The taxes annually pulled in $22 million for the operations.

The parish government has also announced imminent layoffs. Brister said Lenfant would have received new duties under the restructuring. Brister said a decision hasn't yet been made whether to fill the new job Lenfant was to perform.
