    Sec. 8-7-6. Any person holding an office, trust, or employment under a municipality with less than 500,000 inhabitants, who is guilty of the wilful violation of any of the provisions of this Division 7 shall be guilty of a business offense and shall be fined not exceeding $10,000, and shall forfeit his right to his office, trust, or employment, and shall be removed therefrom. Any such person shall be liable for any sum that he unlawfully diverted from the specified working cash fund, or otherwise used, and that sum may be recovered by the municipality, or by any taxpayer in the name and for the benefit of the municipality in a civil action. Such a taxpayer, however, shall file a bond for all costs and shall be liable for all costs taxed against the municipality in such a suit, and judgment shall be rendered accordingly. But nothing in this section shall bar other remedies.
