It may also contain a general provision designating the amount of bail for any misdemeanor not listed in the schedule. A copy of the schedule shall be sent to all jails, sheriff's offices, and police stations within the judicial district, parish, or city, respectively. A bail schedule may be revised or rescinded at any time.

C. If a bail schedule has been set up and bail has not previously been specially fixed, a person charged with the commission of a misdemeanor has the right either to give bail according to the bail schedule, or to demand a special order fixing type or form of bail and amount of bail.
