WICHITA, Kan.--The Wichita Eagle reported city council members on Aug. 11 approved a number of fee hikes, including fines charged for false alarms.

Those who have home or business security systems will pay a greater share for the 23,000-plus false alarms the city's police and fire vehicles go to each year. After one free false alarm, property owners would pay more for each one until the seventh, when the fee tops out at $750.
