(A)   Permit required.  No person shall use an alarm system, as described in § 35.20, which is designed to elicit, either directly or indirectly, a police response without first obtaining a permit for such alarm system from the City of Monroe or its designee.  No person shall use an alarm system when the alarm permit for that system has been revoked pursuant to § 35.25 of this ordinance.  The City of Monroe Police Department staff may not respond to an alarm which has not been permitted or the permit revoked.
   (B)   Application.  The permit shall be requested on an application form provided by the City of Monroe.  For those systems in use on the effective date of this ordinance, the alarm user shall have sixty (60) days from said effective date within which to file an application.
   (C)   Transfer of possession.  When the possession of the premises at which an alarm system is maintained is transferred, the person obtaining possession of the property shall file an application for an alarm user permit within thirty (30) days of obtaining possession of the property.  Alarm permits are not transferable.
   (D)   Reporting updated information.  Whenever the information provided on the alarm user permit application changes, the correct information must be provided by the alarm user to the alarm systems coordinator within thirty (30) days of the change.  In addition, each year after the issuance of the permit, permit holders will receive from the alarm systems coordinator a form requesting updated information.  The permit holder shall complete and return this form to the alarm systems coordinator when any of the requested information has changed.
   (E)   Alarm reset.  An alarm user may not install, maintain or use an audible alarm system which can sound continually for more than fifteen (15) minutes.
