Arlington May Up False Alarm, Permit Fees

advertisement

Arlington residents and business owners could soon have to pay more for false alarms and to obtain burglar alarm permits.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports the city may charge people who accidentally trip panic alarms $100. The increased fees are part of an attempt by the city to generate more revenue to balance the budget.

The current fine is $50 after the third and fourth offense in a one-year period, with more offenses drawing higher fines.

The city is also considering raising commerical alarm permit fees from $50 to $100.  Residential fees are capped at $50 by the state.

Anyone operating an alarm in the city must have a permit or face a fine.
