Any person whose alarm system permit is revoked may reapply for a new alarm system permit, but only in accordance with the procedures set forth in this section.
(A) Reapplication: All reapplications shall be submitted directly to the chief of police, or to that person whom the chief of police designates as the alarm officer, on such forms as may be prescribed.
(B) Fees: Every reapplication for an alarm system permit shall be accompanied by a nonrefundable permit fee which shall be established by resolution of the city council. The fee is established to cover the cost of processing the reapplications and permits and shall be in addition to any other permit fee imposed by this code.
(C) Investigation: The chief of police, or designated representative, shall investigate each reapplication to determine whether the grounds for the prior revocation have been eliminated, or are not likely to occur again in the future. Such investigation may include, but shall not be limited to, an on site investigation of the alarm system; an examination of the alarm system and any specifications, diagrams, or descriptions pertaining thereto; and a prescribed test period of reasonable duration.
(D) Issuance Of Permit: If, after investigation, and in his sole discretion, the chief of police determines that the grounds for the prior revocation have been eliminated, or that such grounds are not likely to occur again in the future, an alarm system permit shall be issued to the person who is in possession of the property which the alarm system is designed to protect. The chief of police may attach such conditions to an alarm system permit as he deems reasonably necessary to ensure that the permittee will comply with the provisions of this chapter.
(E) Appeals: Any person whose reapplication for an alarm system permit is denied by the chief of police may appeal such denial to the city council, in accordance with the procedure set forth in subsection 6-14-11(C) of this chapter. (Ord. 1243, 11-25-1980)
