Purpose.
(a) 
The purpose of this section is to encourage alarm users to properly use and maintain the operational effectiveness of alarm systems in order to improve the reliability of alarm systems and reduce or eliminate false alarms.
(b) 
This section governs alarm systems intended to summon law enforcement and Fire Department response and requires registration, establishes fees, provides for penalties for violations, establishes a system of administration, and sets conditions for suspension of police response or revocation of registration.
(2) 
Registration required; application; fee.
(a) 
No alarm user shall operate, or cause to be operated, an alarm system at its alarm site without a valid alarm registration. A separate alarm registration is required for each alarm site.

The fee for an alarm registration or alarm registration renewal is set forth below and shall be paid by the alarm user. No refund of a registration or registration renewal fee will be made. The initial alarm registration fee must be submitted to the alarm administrator within five days after the alarm system installation or alarm system takeover.

Registration fee: see Appendix A for fees.[1]
[1]
Editor's Note: Appendix A is included at the end of this chapter.

The Chief of Police or his designee shall be the alarm administrator and shall develop and administer the alarm registration form accordingly. The registration form will include such information as the applicant's name, complete address (including apartment/suite number), and telephone numbers of the person who will be the registration holder and be responsible for the proper maintenance and operation of the alarm system and payment of fees assessed under this article, etc.
3. 
Each alarm site shall be classified as either residential (includes apartments, condos and mobile homes), commercial businesses or financial institutions.
4. 
Each alarm system located at the alarm site shall also be classified to inform the Village about the purpose of the system (i.e., burglary, holdup, duress, panic, intrusion, fire or other) and classified as to whether such alarm is silent or audible.

Residential alarm systems do not need to be annually renewed unless there is a new property owner, who is then subject to a new registration fee. The alarm administrator shall notify each alarm user of the need for renewal 30 days prior to the expiration of the registration. It is the responsibility of the alarm user to submit an application prior to the registration expiration date. Failure to renew will be classified as a use of a nonregistered alarm system and fees and penalties will be assessed without waiver. A late fee as provided in Appendix A may be assessed if the renewal is more than 30 days late.[3]

Editor's Note: Amended at time of adoption of Code (see Code Adoption Ordinance).

In the interest of public safety, all information contained in and gathered through the alarm registration applications shall be held in confidence by all employees or representatives of the municipality and by any third party administrator or employee of the third party administrator with access to such information.

Government immunity. Alarm registration is not intended to, nor will it, create a contract, duty, or obligation, either expressed or implied, of response. Any and all liability and consequential damage resulting from the failure to respond to a notification is hereby disclaimed and governmental immunity as provided by law is retained. By applying for an alarm registration, the alarm user acknowledges that law enforcement response may be influenced by factors such as the availability of police units, priority of calls, weather conditions, traffic conditions, emergency conditions, staffing levels and prior response history.

[Amended by Ord. No. 692]
(1) 
Violations. Whenever, upon inspection of any establishment or place regulated under §§ 12.05 to 12.07, the Public Health Administrator/Health Officer finds that conditions or practices exist which are in violation of such provisions, he shall issue a written order setting forth the character of the violation. This order, which may be served personally or by certified or registered mail to the operator of such establishment or place, shall direct him to correct such practices or conditions within a reasonable period of time, to be determined by the Public Health Administrator/Health Officer. Such order shall also contain the notification that if such practices or conditions have not been corrected within such period, the permit to operate such establishment shall be suspended.
(2) 
Suspension of permit. If, at the end of such period of time, a reinspection by the Public Health Administrator/Health Officer reveals that such practices or conditions have not been corrected, he shall suspend the permit and give notice in writing to the operator that his permit has been suspended under §§ 12.05 to 12.07 of this chapter.
(3) 
Hearing; permit revocation. Any person whose permit to operate an establishment or place regulated under §§ 12.05 to 12.07 has been suspended or who has received notice from the Public Health Administrator/Health Officer that his permit is to be suspended unless existing conditions or practices at his establishment are corrected may request and shall be granted a hearing on the matter before the Public Health Administrator/Health Officer.
