806.03   EXCESSIVE FALSE ALARMS.
   (a)   The Police Department shall monitor the number of false alarms to which public safety personnel respond, keeping records of the same. Such records shall indicate the date of each such false alarm, the name and address of the user of the system generating the false alarm, the time of the false alarm, the weather conditions existing at the time of the false alarm and such additional information as deemed necessary by the Chief of Police.
   (b)   The Director of Public Safety and Service may require the subscriber to comply with any one or a combination of the following requirements as would minimize, in his or her judgment, such false alarms in the future:
      (1)   If, during a calendar year, more than three false alarms other than fire alarms are produced by any alarm system, the Director or his or her designee may assess against the relevant alarm user a charge of not less than twenty-five dollars ($25.00) for each false alarm in excess of three and up to and including seven false alarms. Such assessment shall be satisfied within thirty days from the date of notice.
      (2)   If, during a calendar year, more than seven false alarms other than fire alarms are produced by any alarm system, the Director or his or her designee may assess against the relevant alarm user a charge of not less than one hundred dollars ($100.00) for each false alarm in excess of seven. Such assessment shall be satisfied within thirty days from the date of notice.
      (3)   If, during a calendar year, more than eleven false alarms other than fire alarms are produced by any alarm system, the Director or his or her designee may require the alarm user to disconnect the alarm system in such a fashion that alarm signals are not emitted, either directly or indirectly. Such disconnect order shall remain in effect until such time as the alarm user has presented such documentation as, in the opinion of the Director or his or her designee, suffices to indicate that the cause of the false alarms generated by the alarm system has been repaired or otherwise remedied.
      (4)   Regarding fire alarms, if there are more than four false fire alarms in a thirty-day period or more than six false fire alarms in a ninety-day period, the Director or his or her designee may assess against the relevant alarm user a charge of not less than two hundred fifty dollars ($250.00) for each false alarm in excess of four in thirty days or six in ninety days. Such assessment shall be satisfied within thirty days from the date of notice.
         No person shall fail to comply with any such order of the Director or his or her designee.
