Atlanta False Alarm Ordinance – Register by February 1, 2014

City of Atlanta residents and businesses are now required to register their security and burglar alarm systems. In 2012, the Atlanta Police Department responded to 65,000 alarm system activations, 95% of which were false alarms or alarms that were cancelled in route. These calls represent more than six percent of total 911 dispatches. With every call taking an average of 20-30 minutes, the equivalent of 8-12 full-time police officers were dedicated to responding to false alarms, thereby taking away valuable public safety resources from more pressing matters.

Fines assessed for false alarms.

All Members Vote October 28th on Bylaws Review

NPU M is conducting the annual process of reviewing our bylaws, as mandated by the City of Atlanta.  A bylaws committee was formed, and it submitted a proposal for revisions at the September 23rd meeting of the General Body.  Thanks to Keith DeCay, Jim Schneider, Kit Sutherland, Matt Garbett, Matthew Jones, and Rashid Muhammad for serving on the committee.
Amendments to the Bylaws were also proposed from the floor.  As per our current bylaws, the changes were tabled until the next meeting to allow time for review.All members of NPU M are eligible to vote on the bylaws, regardless of prior attendance.  If you reside, own property, or operate a business/organization (one designated rep from the latter) in NPU M, you are eligible to vote at October’s meeting (October 28, 6:30PM).  We meet at 515 John Wesley Dobbs Avenue at the Helene S. Mills Sr. Multipurpose Senior Center.
We strongly encourage you to read the proposed changes, discuss them, and attend the October 28th meeting.  Here’s some material to help you participate — the bare essentials are in bold:
