  91.730.  Default — rights of bondholders — procedure of circuit court — receiver. — 1.  In the event that the municipality shall default in the payment of the principal or interest on any of the bonds after the same shall become due, whether at maturity or upon call for redemption, and such default shall continue for a period of thirty days, or in the event that the municipality or the governing body or officers, agents or employees thereof shall fail or refuse to comply with the provisions of sections 91.620 to 91.770 or shall default in any agreement made with the holders of the bonds, any holders of bonds, or trustee therefor, shall have the right to apply in an appropriate judicial proceeding to the circuit court, or if the undertaking is situate in two or more different counties, then the circuit court of the county in which are situate more of the lands and other property of the municipality than in any other county, for the appointment of a receiver of the enterprise, whether or not all bonds have been declared due and payable and whether or not such holder, or trustee therefor, is seeking or has sought to enforce any other right, or exercise any remedy in connection with such bonds.  Upon such application the circuit court may appoint, and if the application is made by the holders of twenty-five percent in principal amount of such bonds then outstanding, or any trustee for holders of such bonds in such principal amount, shall appoint a receiver of the enterprise.

  2.  The receiver so appointed shall forthwith, directly or by his agents and attorneys, enter into and upon and take possession of the enterprise and each and every part thereof and may exclude the municipality, its governing body, officers, agents, and employees and all persons claiming under them wholly therefrom and shall have, hold, use, operate, manage, and control the same and each and every part thereof, and, in the name of the municipality or otherwise, as the receiver may deem best, and shall exercise all the rights and powers of the municipality with respect to the enterprise as the municipality itself might do.  Such receiver shall maintain, restore, insure and keep insured, the enterprise, and from time to time shall make all such necessary or proper repairs as to such receiver may seem expedient and shall establish, levy, maintain and collect such fees, tolls, rentals, and other charges in connection with the enterprise as such receiver may deem necessary or proper and reasonable, and shall collect and receive all revenues and shall deposit the same in a separate account and apply such revenues so collected and received in such manner as the court shall direct.

  3.  Whenever all that is due upon the bonds, and interest thereon, and upon any other notes, bonds or other obligations, and interest thereon, having a charge, lien, or encumbrance on the revenues of the enterprise and under any of the terms of any covenants or agreements with bondholders shall have been paid or deposited as provided therein, and all defaults shall have been cured and made good, the court may in its discretion, and after such notice and hearing as it deems reasonable and proper, direct the receiver to surrender possession of the enterprise to the municipality, the same right of the holders of the bonds to secure the appointment of a receiver to exist upon any subsequent default as herein provided.

  4.  Such receiver shall in the performance of the powers herein conferred upon him, act under the direction and supervision of the court making such appointment and shall at all times be subject to the orders and decrees of such court and may be removed thereby.  Nothing herein contained shall limit or restrict the jurisdiction of such court to enter such other and further orders and decrees as such court may deem necessary or appropriate for the exercise by the receiver of any functions specifically set forth herein.
