Altoona Snow Ordinance in effect

The snow removal parking ban is in effect in Altoona beginning on Monday, Jan. 8. As per City Code 69.11- Snow Removal, cars should not be parked on any Altoona city street to allow for adequate snow removal by Altoona city crews. City roads will only be cleared if Altoona’s equipment can safely remove the snow without hitting parked vehicles or other objects in the roadway. These blocked roadways will instead be cleared after the homeowner removes the object, or it is towed or otherwise removed at the owner’s expense. The City of Altoona and the Altoona Police Department will share updates on the ordinance on this page and on the city’s Facebook page and X account.

Homeowner snow removal responsibilities

Property owners are expected to maintain the sidewalks on their property in accordance with City Code 136.03, which states that snow must be removed from city sidewalks within 24 hours of the end of a snow or ice storm or weather event.
