Sec. 27-109. General regulations.
(a) It shall be unlawful for any person to intentionally activate any alarm for any reason other than to warn of an unlawful act, fire or other emergency. The testing of an alarm or alarm system shall not constitute a false alarm when permittee notifies the appropriate monitoring company prior to any service, test, repair, maintenance, adjustment, alteration, or installation of systems which would normally result in an emergency response.
(b) No person or business who purchases, leases, rents or uses an audible alarm system, device or service which is not connected to a central receiving station of an alarm business shall allow said alarm to sound in excess of thirty (30) minutes. An audible alarm which has emitted an alarm signal in excess of thirty (30) minutes is hereby declared to be a nuisance. If service is unavailable from an alarm business or agent responsible for the system, the city may cause the alarm to be disconnected with the cost therefor to be a charge payable by the alarm user.
