NEW FALSE ALARM ORDINANCE
Effective August 1, 2012, the new False Alarm Ordinance will go into effect. It directs that after two false alarms have occurred, within a twelve month period, a letter is to be sent to the business owner/resident advising that any subsequent false alarms within a 12-month period of the first alarm will result in the imposition of a civil fine for recoupment.
Upon receipt of the third and any subsequent false alarms within a 12-month period, a partial expense reimbursement to the CIty shall be paid by the alarm owner for the false alarm as follows:
3rd false alarm $50.00, 4th and 5th false alarms $100 for each offense, 6th-9th false alarms $150 for each offense, and the 10th and all subsequent false alarms $200 for each offense.
Failure to pay this recoupment of civil fines is in violation of City of Wentzville Ordinance 100.190, punishable up to $500 fine and/or 90 days in jail.
