Compensation of the receiver and attorney shall be fixed by the court from time to time, upon a salary basis. In banks with total assets of one million dollars ($1,000,000.00) or more the salary of the receiver shall not exceed three hundred dollars ($300.00) per month and the salary of the attorney shall not exceed two hundred fifty dollars ($250.00) per month.

The receiver and attorney shall also be allowed reasonable amounts for necessary expenses, all of which shall be a charge upon the assets of the bank. Any receiver, attorney, or employee may be removed for cause by the chancellor at any time.
In the event a bank receivership shall be closed and the receiver and attorney finally discharged and it should appear after a lapse of ten (10) years from the date of the closing of said receivership that certain probable assets might be recovered for the benefit of depositors and creditors of said bank and the court shall reopen said receivership for the purpose of recovering said assets, the receiver or attorney, or both, so appointed by the court to recover said assets may be allowed for his services in lieu of the salaries above stated, a fee to be fixed by the court, and said fee may be either a cash fee or an interest in the property or thing recovered in the sole discretion of the court, and the court may allow such fee for services heretofore rendered for a period of not more than six (6) years prior to the effective date of this section.
