336.505 Default in bonds or interest coupons issued by special road and bridge district; receivership; bondholder claims.—
(1) If any bond or interest coupon on a bond issued by a special road and bridge district is not paid within 60 days after it matures, a receiver may be appointed in the same manner as in s. 298.51.
