The Ethics Board advises that in the case of a local official who has been
elected to serve on the board of directors of a municipal mutual insurance
corporation by a government approved process, to represent the local
government’s interests on the board, §19.59, Wisconsin Statutes, does not bar
the official from participating in the local government’s consideration, discussion,
or votes to award a contract to or change government policy to permit
the purchase of services from the corporation.
