At Tuesday’s session of the Huntsville City Council, councilmembers discussed a first reading of the amendment of an ordinance regarding alarm systems that would provide for a penalty and other provisions.
Police Chief Kevin Lunsford presented one of the basic issues of the annual alarm permitting regarding the proposed $10 dollar residential alarm permit registration renewal fee and the $30 dollar commercial renewal fee. This involves a contract with another company who would do the fee collections and registration work.
Position #1 Councilmember James Fitch explained the reasons for the renewals . . . .
Ward #3 Councilmember Ron Allen asked Chief Lunsford if people “refuse to get permitted and their alarm keeps going off, like the people that are getting permitted, how do we fine them?”
Lunsford answered his question . . . .
Councilmembers will take another look at the alarm ordinance at their next meeting.
