Sandy Springs GA To Fine Alarm Companies Directly For False Alarms

From Sandy Springs, GA, a suburb of Atlanta with a population of 100,000 people:

Under the new ordinance, the fines get stricter (though the fines still range from a warning to $500, the warnings stop after the first offense), alarm companies must be registered with the city, state law is enforced regarding enhanced verification, additional verification requirements are set for video-monitored burglar alarms and the alarm companies can be fined for noncompliance. The new ordinance would also outlaw single-action non-recessed buttons on panic and holdup alarms and include a five-year amortization period for compliance.

I can see some companies getting fined out of existence if laws like this become more common.

Thoughts?
