The installation hereafter of any automatic dialer alarm system to any city facility is prohibited. All alarm holders having such a device shall be notified in writing as soon as the city becomes aware of such system and be given 90 days to convert their system to the city’s direct connection system or to obtain a central answering point other than the city; provided, however, that, alarm holders who, at the time of the enactment of this subchapter, have been granted permission to have an automatic dialer whose central answering point is the city’s unlisted telephone number shall be allowed to retain such connection if the alarm holder, at his or her expense, converts such automatic dialer to a digital read-out so as to be compatible with the city’s direct connection monitoring equipment. Such conversion shall be made within 90 days of notice from the city to do so. No person may hereafter authorize or cause an automatic dialer alarm to be connected to the city.
