  2.  No change of venue shall be allowed in any proceedings by and under the court as provided in this chapter except in condemnation cases and except where the judge of the court shall be disqualified under the laws of this state relating to the change of venue in civil cases.  In such situation the following shall apply:

  (1)  If the judge of the court is disqualified, or is charged, by a party of interest to any proceedings, with being disqualified, the judge shall take action under the change of venue law for civil cases to secure a judge from another judicial circuit of this state to sit, hear the proceedings, and render a decision in the same manner as the regular judge has authority to do.  The judge secured from another judicial circuit shall retain jurisdiction until the disqualification of the regular judge of the court is removed.

  (2)  The expenses of the judge secured from another judicial circuit shall be paid in such amount and manner as provided by the laws of the state relating to circuit courts.
