Residential and commercial users of alarm systems located in the City of Happy Valley are required to have a permit.
The purpose of the Alarm Ordinance is to reduce the number of false alarms that the Sheriff's Office receives. Sheriff's patrol units respond to all
alarms. The man-hours and resources used during response to false alarms is an obvious waste of resources and tax dollars.
An Alarm Permit may be obtained at City Hall. A completed alarm permit application
must be received as well as any required fees:
- $40 for residents
- $80 for business
Fees indicated are for each two-year period. Effective date of ordinance was January 1, 2001.
For those residents who are 65 years of age or over, there is no fee. However, these users will still be required to have a permit and will be assessed fines for excessive false alarms.
