In cases where it is determined that the assessments shall be collected in more than 2 installments, the drainage board, acting on behalf of the drainage district, may borrow money and may issue bonds therefor as provided in the case of drains lying wholly within 1 county.

All installments, with interest thereon, of the special assessments shall be transmitted as collected by the treasurer or treasurers of the other county or counties concerned to the treasurer of such county, who shall issue his receipt therefor and shall place the moneys in the fund of the drain to be disbursed solely for the retirement of the bonds at maturity and the payment of interest thereon.
