A proposed ordinance to crack down on false alarms advances to the Town Council Thursday.

Council members have conducted two meetings in open session with Interim Police Chief James Edelstein to discuss a remedy to false alarms, which cost the police money in staff time and divert them from responding to serious matters.

Edelstein helped to craft an ordinance to create a civil fine for false alarms at $52, a registration process for homeowners and businesses that have false alarms, and other measures. The fine would recover the cost that police face when they respond to false alarms.

Police would enforce the ordinance through a third-party vendor and by appointing an alarm coordinator who works for the police department.

The ordinance will face its first reading Thursday and require a follow-up vote before it goes into effect.

The council meeting begins at 5:30 p.m. and takes place in the library auditorium, 7401 E. Civic Circle.

Also on the agenda are:

• Presentation of the Mayor's Recognition Award to Rosanna Feyerabend, publisher of a Hispanic newspaper.

• A proclamation on National American Heritage Month.

• Re-appointment of Sally Landes to the board of the Municipal Property Corporation.

• A public hearing on a rezoning for 15.5 acres to accommodate plans to expand the SunGate Villa senior apartment complex by 66 units, bringing the total to 292. The site is located 400 feet south of Long Look Drive, between Viewpoint and Civic drives.

• A public hearing on a proposed ordinance to revise fees to make them correspond more closely to the costs of making copies of General Plan 2025.

• A memorandum of understanding for the town to annex lots and public rights of way in the Tapadero Domestic Wastewater District in the Prescott Country Club.

• A discussion on building the Northside sewer trunk lines to entice growth. Northside refers to commercial zoned land north of Highway 89A and south of the Viewpoint and Pronghorn Ranch subdivisions.
