Seattle Alarm Ordinance

On November 24th the Budget Committee passed a new burglar and fire alarm ordinance that requires all monitored alarm systems be licensed annually.  The fees are $40 for burglar alarms, $80 for stand alone fire alarms, and $320 for commercial fire alarms that are already required to be monitored by the city codes.  Fire alarms, residential and commercial that are not required by city codes but are combined with burglar alarm systems are included in the $40 fee.  False burglar alarm fees continue at $125 each.  There is no false fire alarm fee.
