The legislature hereby finds and determines that upon the incorporation of the city of Central within East Baton Rouge Parish a state of emergency will exist in the municipality until cash flow can be developed through the levy and collection of municipal sales and use taxes to fund the expenses of municipal government.  As a result of the foregoing, the legislature determines it essential and necessary to authorize the continuation of the parish tax within the area incorporated, to authorize the continuation of the provision of services by the parish within the area incorporated, and to create a financial assistance district and provide for it a source of revenue in order that it may engage in cooperative endeavors, enter into contracts for the provision of essential public services, and raise revenue to assist the municipality in funding the delivery of essential public services to its citizens and to assist the municipality in preventing cash flow difficulties.
