New Florida Alarm Ordinance Fines Homeowners


City commissioners in Kissimmee, Fla., have unanimously voted to pass an alarm ordinance that imposes heavier fines for home and business owners who have repeated false alarms. Homeowners will also be required to get a permit to have an alarm.

Under the new ordinance, state officials will stop responding if there are six or more false alarms in one year.

According to police, nearly 73 percent of the automated alarm calls they respond to are false, reported the Central Florida News.
