Cancellation of bond by surety

(1) As used in this section:

(a) "Bond" means any undertaking, recognizance or other obligation required by statute, ordinance or regulation to be executed by a surety and given to a public body by any person as a condition to the granting of a permit, license or franchise by a public body.

(b) "Public body" means the state and any department, agency, board or commission of the state, any city, county, school district or other political subdivision or municipal or public corporation, any instrumentality thereof and any court.

(2) The surety may cancel a bond by sending notice of cancellation by registered or certified mail to the public body with which the bond is filed and to the principal at the principal’s address of record with the surety. Such cancellation takes effect on the date specified in the notice but not earlier than the 30th day after the date of mailing. The surety shall have no liability under the bond for an act or default occurring after the effective date of such cancellation.
