Walnut Creek’s Alarm Administration Services Program: The vendor for this new program, Alarm Program Systems LLC, should be replaced. This week I received a $75.00 Alarm Permit Invoice from the vendor for an alarm at 3000 Citrus Circle Ste 107. Thing is, I haven’t leased that office space in about 15 years, and there was no alarm when I leased the space. Is the vendor purposely sending out bogus invoices to rake in more money? If the vendor’s database is so bad as to be billing former lessees who vacated the premises 15 years ago, the vendor is not capable of running this program.

It seems like a fake invoice. There is no mention of either “Alarm Administration Services” nor “Alarm Program Systems” on the city’s web site.

https://www.ag.state.mn.us/consumer/Publications/FakeInvoices.asp says there’s a federal law but does not cite it though provides contacts at the federal level.

@WC Resident. The invoice and alarm permit requirement are real. WCPD is responsible for the program, not the City offices. Many municipalities require alarm registration/permits (including PH where I live) to purportedly decrease false alarms. The invoice came with a cover letter from WCPD Lt Tom Cashion. WC’s alarm ordinance is WC Municipal Cod Sec. 3-9.01. WCPD contracts with vendor Alarm Program Systems LLC to administer alarm registration and billing. The website for this function is walnutcreekca.citysupport.org, which is also reached when you visit WCPD’s website and click on the alarm permit tab on the left side of the webpage. .

I notified WCPD about what I received, and my opinion that the vendor was incompetent to administer the program if it is going to bill a former office lessee who has not occupied the office premises for 15 years.

Concord City Council holding a special meeting on Saturday. Agenda says it’s on a “Vision for Future of Concord.” I’m sure posters here can offer some ideas. Maybe the Claycord Mayor will start the topic its own thread?
