Raleigh Wants To Hear From Alarm Companies Before Passing Ordinance

— On Tuesday, Raleigh City Council members raised an "alarming" issue.

The Raleigh City Council wants to hear from alarm companies before passing a false alarm ordinance. Under the ordinance, people with alarm systems would be fined if they had more than two false alarms a year.

Council members are trying to determine who determines whether an alarm is false or real.

A vote on the ordinance by the full council is expected by the end of July.
