382.18 OFFICIALS NOT TO BE INTERESTED IN CONTRACTS.
No county official, or deputy or clerk or employee of such official; and no commissioner
for tax-forfeited lands or commissioner's assistants, shall be directly or indirectly interested in
any contract, work, labor, or business to which the county is a party or in which it is or may be
interested or in the furnishing of any article to, or the purchase or sale of any property, real or
personal, by, the county, or of which the consideration, price, or expense is payable from the
county treasury. Nothing in this section shall prevent a person from receiving reimbursement from
a county for providing licensed or tribally approved family foster care. This section does not
prevent a coroner, deputy coroner, coroner's investigator, or medical examiner from receiving
compensation for professional services from a professional corporation or medical provider
under contract to provide coroner services to a county. Any violation of the provisions of this
section shall be a gross misdemeanor.
