On September 12, 2017, the Hurst City Council approved to amend and replace Hurst Ordinance, Chapter 12, Article VI (Alarm Permits) to include residential locations requiring residential permits for alarm systems. Effective September 12, 2017, any resident who does not have a permit for their home alarm system within ninety (90) days of being notified in writing by the alarm administrator, could be fined up to $500. New alarms must be permitted within thirty (30) days of installation.
Each year, false alarms cost the city and its citizens thousands of dollars and take police officers away from actual emergencies. To lessen the financial impact of unnecessary emergency responses to false alarms, the City of Hurst adopted an alarm ordinance and program. The alarm ordinance establishes business and residential alarm code requirements. The ordinance requires business and residential alarm users to register their alarm system with the city by paying an annual permit fee.
