STATEMENT OF UNDERSTANDING

ANNUAL PERMIT REGISTRATIONS 6-6-6

The Village Code of Glen Ellyn, Chapter 6, Section 6-6 requires all persons operating alarms intended to summon the Police or Fire Departments have a permit.   Permit registrations, including a $25 registration fee, are due by September 1st of each year.  Thereafter, if the alarm user permit is not renewed, and the annual fee not paid on or prior to September 1 each year, the applicant shall be charged double the applicable user permit fee.      

PERMIT NOT WARRANTY 6-6-10

A permit issued by the Village does not constitute a warranty of the alarm system involved, and issuance of the permit is subject to the Village’s disclaimer of liability.

SERVICE CHARGES FOR FALSE ALARMS 6-6-12

The alarm ordinance includes a provision for a service charge for certain false alarm activations.  Alarm activations are not deemed to be ‘false alarms’ if activated due to violent weather conditions, telephone line service interruptions, acts of God or other extraordinary circumstances not reasonably subject to the control of the alarm user.  A fee of fifty dollars ($50.00) will be charged for each false alarm in excess of three (3) but less than nine (9) in any one calendar year.  False alarms in excess of eight (8) in any calendar year are subject to higher fines.  The Village will send a monthly account statement to any residences that incurred an alarm activation.  

CONTESTED SERVICE CHARGE 6-6-13

Permit holders who wish to contest a service charge on their invoice are entitled to an administrative hearing.  Failure to request a hearing within ten (10) days of receipt of the statement of the false alarm charge shall constitute an admission that the service charge is justified and due to the Village.  To request a hearing, contact the Glen Ellyn Police Department at 630-469-1187. Administrative Hearings are held on the third Wednesday of each month at 7:00 pm at the Civic Center, 535 Duane Street, Glen Ellyn.
