3.9.20 – Daily Tribune –

Had the ordinance taken effect, residents would’ve been fined $50 for failing to register their alarm systems, with a $100 fine assessed each time personnel responded to an unregistered alarm.

A proposed ordinance that would’ve required residents and businesses to register their security alarms with the local police department is apparently a dead issue following Thursday evening’s Cartersville City Council meeting.
“I don’t think it’s necessary,” said Frank McCann, chief of the Cartersville Police Department, at the podium. “We were able to work with our I.T. department and finance department to obtain the information that we were trying to obtain with the ordinance — so I’m respectfully requesting that you guys pull that ordinance or vote no or whatever is necessary to do.”
Members of the council voted unanimously to do exactly as McCann requested and the item was officially pulled from the agenda.
