  (1)  To segregate the revenues derived from the operation of such system from all other revenues or funds of such city, town or village or sewer district; to hold such funds separate and distinct from all other funds thereof and, if such funds shall be deposited in any bank, to maintain such deposits as an account separate and distinct from all other bank accounts thereof.

  (2)  Such revenues shall be devoted, first, to the payment of the expenses of operating and maintaining such system; second, to the payment of any and all bonds or other obligations payable from such revenues; third, to the establishment of a proper depreciation reserve for the benefit of such system; fourth, to the fulfillment of any covenants or agreements contained in any ordinance which may have authorized outstanding revenue bonds issued for the benefit of such system and, fifth, for the payment of the cost of improvements and extensions to such system.

  (3)  To install and maintain proper books of records and accounts (entirely separate from all other records and accounts of the city, town or village or sewer district) in which correct entries shall be made of all dealings or transactions of or in relation to the properties, business and affairs of the sewerage system or of the combined waterworks and sewerage system.  Such accounts shall show the amount of revenues received from the system, the application of such revenues and all financial transactions in connection therewith.  At least once a year such accounts shall be audited properly by a public accountant employed for that purpose to be paid from the revenues received from the system.  Such audits shall at all times, during usual business hours, be open to the examination and inspection by any taxpayer, any user of the services of the system or any holder of any bonds issued pursuant to this chapter or by anyone acting for or on behalf of any such taxpayer, user or bondholder.  Such books of records and accounts and such audits shall conform to any reasonable and valid covenant or agreement with respect thereto set out in any ordinance which may authorize the issuance of bonds pursuant to this chapter.
