At the general election in 1980, and every four (4) years thereafter, a county treasurer shall be elected in each county for a term of four (4) years, commencing on the second Tuesday in October following the election, and until a successor is elected and qualified. Such county treasurer shall, before entering upon the duties, of the office execute to the state of Kansas a corporate surety bond issued by a company authorized to do business in this state and approved by the board of county commissioners in an amount of not less than twenty-five thousand dollars ($25,000). Such bond, with the approval of the board endorsed thereon by the clerk, shall be filed in the office of the county clerk. In the event the board of commissioners shall not be in session in time for any county treasurer to present such bond for their approval as above specified, or such county treasurer shall be unable, for any reason, to present such bond at any regular meeting of the board after due notice of such county treasurer's election, such county treasurer may present such bond to the chairman or clerk of the board for approval, and the approval endorsed thereon shall have the same effect as if done by the board of county commissioners. In the event the amount of the bond is approved by only the chairman or the clerk of the board, it shall not be less than twice the amount of all moneys directed by the board to be levied in the county during the previous year.
