  • Executive Order seeking temporary, modified or suspended application regarding Altoona Municipal Code Chapters 5.24, 3.08 >>
    Local businesses have been severely impacted by restrictions put in place due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  City establishment license renewal fee and delinquent amounts are due June 30, 2020.  To assist businesses, it is proposed to allow a standard payment plan.  The plan would require payment of the State-required minimum amount by the June 30, 2020; any remaining balances would be due by December 31, 2020, with late fees and penalties applying after that date.  During the deferral period, late fees and penalties would be waived.
  • Executive Order seeking temporary, modified or suspended application regarding Altoona Municipal Code Chapter 5.50 >>
    Governor Evers' Safer at Home Order is currently in effect until May 26, 2020 and the Badger Bounce Back Plan will be implemented as specific metrics are met.  This leaves much uncertainty with respect to planning for public events in late May and June when we traditionally hold our community celebration, Cinder City Days, and begin our music series in River Prairie Park.  To address that uncertainty this emergency order would prohibit large gatherings organized or permitted by the City through June 30, 2020.  This order would also provide the City Administrator the authority to shorten the prohibition on large gatherings if Badger Bounce Back metrics are met allowing for such gatherings.
