Nothing in this chapter shall prohibit the connection of any alarm system to a central answering point other than a city facility which shall first attempt to determine the validity of any alarm signal, then to notify the Police or Fire Department when unable to do so or when the signal is believed to be a valid alarm. Notwithstanding any other provision or the city code, the response by the city to alarms called in by a private answering facility is completely voluntary, is not pursuant to any duty or contract and can be terminated at any time upon 30 days’ notice for failure to pay any service charge.
