There’s no such thing as a free lunch. Altoona may put a new spin on that old saying when the City Council considers an ordinance allowing the city to assess service charges to nonresidents and nontaxpayers who require emergency calls. Altoona fire Chief Mark Renderman will make a presentation on the proposed ordinance at the council meeting at 6 p.m. Thursday. The ordinance would allow the city to charge a fee for service calls to some fires, crashes, rescues and spills. It would allow the city to bill nonresidents and entities that don’t pay property taxes or payments in lieu of property taxes.
