Philadelphia Mayor Cherelle Parker signed a bill into law this week that requires a Landlord Tenant Officer to undergo additional training in order to carry out the evictions of tenants. She signed the bill on Tuesday, July 19th, 2024 in conjunction with two bills aimed at protecting the public: one involving gun “switch” legislation and the other adding automated speed cameras on Broad Street. “We will not accept gun violence, hazardous roads, or irresponsible eviction practices in our city. Today, I proudly signed three pieces of legislation reaffirming my administration’s dedication to enhancing public safety in our communities,” Mayor Parker said at the bill-signing at City Hall.
