CHAPTER 7. COUNTY COMMISSIONS AND OFFICERS.

§7-1-5a. Excusal of commissioner from voting where conflict of interest involved.

Each county commissioner present during any county commission meeting when any question is put shall vote unless he is immediately and particularly interested therein. Before such question is put, any member having a direct personal or pecuniary interest therein should announce this fact, and request to be excused from voting. The disqualifying interest must be such as affects the member directly, and not as one of a class.
