A business or resident in the City of Utica utilizing a fire or police alarm device must apply to the City Clerk for a permit. The purpose of this requirement is to ensure that police and fire communication facilities will be available to dispatch personnel for actual emergencies. Another reason is to provide the City of Utica with names of the responsible people to contact in the event of an emergency.
A permanent alarm purchased from an alarm company is a one time fee of $ 25.00. Payments can be made in our office with cash or check, or through the mail by check only. Checks can be made out to the City of Utica.
