  • Alarm users must obtain a valid license annually from the Village for each alarm site.
  • Alarm licensing fees are $25.00 annually for business properties and free for residential properties. (Alarm licensing fees are no longer assessed from the previous year.)
  • Residents are required to obtain a valid license annually, even though licenses are still free for residential properties,
  • The false alarm fee structure has been established to discourage non-event false alarms from diverting police resources away from the community.  Fines for residential and business false alarms are summarized below (per Village Ordinance 3-19-10):
