In a unanimous vote, the city council agreed to open their new legislation regarding false alarms.
The major issues are fines on the first false alarm offense and language in the bill which requires alarms t be registered with the local police.
Mayor Jeff Eager says everyone is working to the same goal.
"I think there are some things that we can easily agree on and one of them is that we have a problem with false alarms. Estimating over 2,000 false alarms in a year in the city of Bend. What we need to do is come up with a way to encourage people to take better care of their alarms."
The new bill will not fine people for their first offense and will clarify that it is business, which are required to register their systems with police, not citizens.
