There has been much confusion about the new Milwaukee Alarm Ordinance and how and when it is going to be implemented. After several conversations with the city, we have finally received notification that all forms should be available by the end of next week.(June 24th). The ordinance actually went into effect June 1st, but all of the appropriate forms are just now being made available. Now that the forms are being made available to the public, the city in short order will be enforcing the new requirements.
Information for the electrical part of the ordinance, the LV, LB, LF type or other pertinent licenses are available from the Dept of Neighborhood Services, Electrical and Elevator division. They may be contacted at 414-286-2532 or http://city.milwaukee.gov/Electrical . These applications when approved are what will allow you to pull the appropriate permits or affidavits for installations.
Information for registering your sales personal, the brochure that must be given out with each sale of a new system, and all appropriate forms for your alarm license will be available at the License Division of the City Clerk. They may be contacted at 414-286-2238 or http://www.milwaukee.gov/license .
Our understanding is, the websites mentioned above are for information only and the actual forms must be picked up in person at City Hall and NHS.(they are across the street from each other).
