The required improvements as listed elsewhere are to be furnished and installed at the sole expense of the applicant. If any improvement installed within the subdivision will be of substantial benefit to lands beyond the boundaries of the subdivision, provision may, at the discretion of the city council, be made for causing a portion of the cost of the improvement, representing the benefit to such lands, to be assessed against the same. In such a situation, the applicant may be required only to pay for such portion of the whole cost of said improvement as will represent the benefit to the property within the subdivision. (Amended Ord. 1988-8, 9-8-1988; amd. 2005 Code)
