A. Any franchisee shall extend service to areas which are contiguous to the designated service areas (as set forth in the resolution awarding the franchise), whenever the density of such contiguous areas reaches a level of 40 units per road mile or portion thereof. Such contiguous areas shall then be considered, for all purposes and intent under this chapter, to be incorporated into the initial service areas of the franchise.

B. Any franchisee shall extend service to all other areas whenever requested to do so by residents who are willing to pay the cost of such extension of service. Any such line extensions shall be made pursuant to written contract between franchisee and resident.

C. Any applicant for a franchise may propose in its application line extension provisions under which greater service would be provided than prescribed above. In the event of any inconsistency between the line extension provisions prescribed above, and the express terms in other franchise documents, the provisions in the other franchise documents shall prevail if the issuing authority has found that the provisions in the other franchise documents will better serve the needs of the public and promote the public interest.
