HWS has from 50 to 80 false alarms per month to the colleges wasting the resources/personnel of the fire department

charge the college $1,000 per false alarm until the colleges correct the problem

$1,000 x 50 false calls per month equals $50,000

$50,000 x 12 months = $600,000 for false alarms calls to the colleges per year

the $200,000 that HWS is offering to 'donate' to the city per year does not even cover the cost for the false alarm calls per year
