City of Altoona Sidewalk Snow Removal Requirements
With some snow back in the forecast, the city of Altoona is reminding property owners to remove all snow and ice from their sidewalks including handicapped ramps leading to crosswalks.
The city has an ordinance in place regarding snow removal that includes fines up to $600 for non compliance.
Within 24 hours after the end of each accumulating snow, the owner of every property must clear the accumulation from the sidewalk and handicapped ramp leading to a crosswalk. The path must be at least 18 inches wide.
In the event the snow and ice which has accumulated on the sidewalk has become so hard that it cannot be removed by shoveling - sand, salt or an abrasive material must be placed on the sidewalk within 24 hours of the snow and ice accumulation to prevent it from being slippery and to make travel reasonably safe until the sidewalk can be shoveled.
Snow removal is also required on the sidewalks of vacant property and is the responsibility of the property owner.
Snow being removed from a sidewalk is not to be placed on a city street.
If you have a concern regarding sidewalk snow removal, 24 hours after the end of an accumulation call the City of Altoona Codes Department at 949-2456 to report locations which may be in violation. Please note that your name and number is kept in strict confidence. Violators will receive a notice and will be given 24 hours to correct the situation. If, upon re-inspection, the necessary action has not been taken, the city will issue a fine.
Copies of the city snow removal ordinance may be obtained by contacting the City Clerk’s office at 949-2486 or online at www.altoonapa.gov Right to Know Request.
