Bonfire Ordinance in Altoona

Issue 27 and Volume 56.

Bonfire Ordinance in Altoona The City Council of Altoona, Pa., has decided not to repeal the ordinance requiring persons who wish to make bonfires to secure a permit at the nearest fire station. Councilman Shelley, who introduced the repealing ordinance, explained that he did so for the reason that the printing of the permits was a great expense, and the securing of them caused people much inconvenience and because they are now useless, owing to the fact that they are issued good for thirty days, whereas, in the first place, the idea was that fires would be prevented by not issuing permits on windy days.
