Recently, the Addison City Council approved a change to the Town’s alarm permit and false alarm service charges.  Currently Addison residents are required to register their alarm systems each year and are allowed five false alarms before any fee is imposed. 


Residents who have registered their alarm systems will now be allowed three free false alarm calls before false alarm fees are assessed.  The new fee structure will be implemented January 1, 2018.


Residential Registration Fee:  $0

1-3 false alarms: Free
4-5 false alarms: $50*
6-7 false alarms: $75*
8+ false alarms: $100*


*per occurrence


Non-registered alarm users will be charged $100 for the first false alarm, but that fee will be waived if they register their system within 30 days of the violation.
