Alert: The Eagle Trail at English Park is now open to pedestrians and bicyclist only; it remains closed to vehicles.  Pedestrians and bicyclist should observe the safety precautions in place.


The Town of Altavista works around the clock during snow events to clear the roads of snow and make them as safe as possible. There are designated snow emergency routes on the major streets in Town. These streets are plowed first and then all of the residential and side streets and alleys are plowed. Parking is prohibited on snow emergency routes during inclement weather. Vehicles are subject to being towed. Help us help you by keeping vehicles off of the street when snow is forecasted so we have better access to plowing. This will allow us to get the streets open in a more timely fashion.

We make every effort to collect garbage on our regular schedule when it snows. However, the safety of our employees and equipment is our first concern. If we are not able to collect trash on your scheduled day due to inclement weather, we will collect it the following day.
