New Milford officials approve alarm ordinance

The New Milford Town Council has adopted an Alarms ordinance.  The measure is aimed at cutting down on false alarms through system maintenance, fines and liens.  A group will be appointed by the Mayor's office to oversee the fire false alarms and another to deal with false burglar alarms.  The fine for two false alarms would be $50, $100 for the next and $150 for four or more false alarms in a year.  There was a suggested “suspension-of-response” penalty for unpaid fines, but that was changed to a lien placed on the property instead.  The ordinance also includes a $200 fine for any property bringing New Milford to Court to obtain a search warrant, if it gets to that point, so the fire marshal can inspect it.
