  • (a) If in the opinion of the court it shall become necessary for the good of any conservatorship placed or about to be placed in the hands of the county guardian for the county guardian to give additional security on the bond or to give additional bond with security, the court shall have the authority to fix the amount of the bond and shall cite the county guardian to appear and show cause, if any, why the additional bond or additional security should not be given.

  • (b) If upon the hearing the county guardian fails to show good cause why the additional bond or additional security should not be given, the court shall issue an order fixing the amount of the bond and direct the county guardian to give additional security on or before a certain date, which date shall be within 30 days of the date of the order.

  • (c) Should the county guardian fail, refuse, or neglect to give additional bond or additional security on or before the date fixed in the order of the court and fail to show good cause why further time should be allowed, it shall be the duty of the court to remove the county guardian and to appoint another county guardian for the unexpired term of office. The order of removal shall be recorded as provided for the order of appointment.
