Alarms

Residents who have or install a burglar/hold-up alarm system in their home are required to register and pay a yearly permit fee of $25.00 (Village Code Section 6-6-4).   In an effort to encourage responsible alarm system management, the Village allows for three false alarm activations before assessing fines for subsequent alarms.  The fine structure for alarm activations in a single calendar year is: 

1 – 3 activations: No charge

3 – 8 activations: $50 each

8 – 9 activations: $100 each

10 and above:  $200each
