Salisbury City Council Lowers False Alarm Fees

Posted: Updated:

SALSIBURY, Md. - The Salisbury city council made a decision on the false alarm ordinance. 

At Monday night's meeting, the council approved the fee and fine changes for false alarms in Salisbury.  The fees will run $120 for police response and $135 for fire after the second false alarm call.  Fines will be up to $1,000 after the fourth false alarm response by the same responding department within one year.

The council also plans to investigate making an "enhanced call verification system" required for area businesses, hopefully decreasing the number of false alarm calls.  That system would allow alarm companies to attempt two points of contact before calling police.
 
The 1st reading for Salisbury Mayor, Jim Ireton's 2014 budget was approved, as well as an amendment to lower water and sewer rates by 6.5 percent.  Both will be discussed at a series of work sessions, the first of which begins Tuesday.
