§ 18-31.  Policy.
   (a)   In order to promote the orderly growth and advancement of existing and proposed residential, commercial and industrial areas inside, and outside, the city limits; adjacent to, and surrounding the city, so that such areas may at the proper time be served by the water and/or sewer service and those areas outside the city limits be orderly annexed to the city, the board of commissioners of the city hereby decrees that henceforth city water or sanitary sewer service will not be extended to any of the aforesaid such areas, including those within the city limits, except under the terms and conditions set forth in this chapter.
   (b)   This policy is based on the plan adopted many years ago by the mayor and board of commissioners for the financing of the municipally owned water and sanitary systems, which plan provides generally:
      (1)   For all local water distributions mains, including valves, fire hydrants, fire hydrant gate valves, and service connections, and all local collector sewers, including manholes and service connections, to be paid for by the subdivider, developer, or property owner.
      (2)   Operation and maintenance expenses are to be paid for from service charges.
