(a) If any alarm system produces three false alarms in any twelve consecutive month period, written notice of that fact shall be given by regular mail or delivery to the alarm holder and the alarm provider. If more than three false alarms are produced by any alarm system in a twelve consecutive month period, an administrative fee of fifty dollars ($50.00) shall be assessed against the alarm user for the fourth false alarm, and an administrative fee of one hundred dollars ($100.00) shall be assessed for each successive false alarm thereafter. Charges shall continue for each false alarm until six consecutive months have elapsed during which time no false alarms are received by the Fairborn Police Department.
(b) The permit issued to an alarm user may be revoked with the result that the alarm user may be required to disconnect the alarm system in such fashion that signals are not emitted so as to notify the Police Department either directly or indirectly.
(c) An alarm system may be reconnected only if satisfactory evidence is provided to the Chief of Police that the alarm system has been repaired so that it does not emit further false alarms and upon payment of all delinquent charges assessed for false alarms and alarm user has taken appropriate measures to insure against negligent or accidental activation of the alarm system.
(d) In addition to the administrative fees, an alarm user who has more than six false alarms in any twelve consecutive month period and who is deemed by the Chief of Police not to have made reasonable efforts toward correction of the false alarm situation shall be issued an order to disconnect the alarm system so that signals are not emitted to notify the Police Department either directly or indirectly.
