  2.  Any city desiring to establish a revolving improvement fund under this section shall proceed in the manner provided in sections 95.135 to 95.160, inclusive, and the provisions of sections 95.115, 95.120 and 95.135 to 95.170, inclusive, apply to all cities proceeding under this section.

  3.  The principal proceeds of the sale of any bonds issued under this section shall be deposited by the issuing municipality in a separate fund to be known as the "Revolving Improvement Fund".  The issuing municipality may thereafter purchase out of the fund any special tax bills issued by it in payment for public improvements under any law of this state, and may use the fund for no other purpose.  The accrued interest and any premium received upon delivery of any such bonds shall be deposited in the interest and sinking fund from which the bonds and the interest thereon are payable.

  4.  All sums received in payment of principal on the special tax bills so purchased shall be paid into the revolving improvement fund, and shall be reused as provided in subsection 3.  So long as any bonds issued under the provisions of this section remain outstanding, all sums received in payment of interest on any special tax bills purchased with the proceeds of the sale of such bonds shall be transferred and credited to the interest and sinking fund from which the bonds and the interest thereon are payable.  When all bonds issued hereunder have been fully paid, all interest received on special tax bills purchased from the revolving improvement fund shall be transferred to the revolving improvement fund.

  5.  When the city purchases any tax bill from a contractor and if said bill is not paid in accordance with the terms thereof the city attorney or city counselor shall forthwith institute suit on said tax bill as is by law provided.
