Staff Analysis of the Legislation

HB 465 amends Chapter 60 of Title 36 of the OCGA to allow local governments to impose fines, fees, and civil penalties upon alarm system contractors for false alarms in situations of improper installation, failure to provide evidence of the alarm verification process, and instances attributed to the contractor’s error. Should the alarm system contractor be in compliance, however, local governments may impose fines, fees, or civil penalties on the individual property owner for false alarms.
