Can I appeal an assessed recovery fee?

Yes. SVMC Chapter 7.20.170 defines an appeal process under a limited set of circumstances. Specifically, a cost recovery fee may be appealed only if there is credible evidence that the alarm activation was the result of actual criminal activity or an extreme weather event or natural disaster.
