Pittsburgh City Council Votes To Amend Eviction Moratorium

By: KDKA-TV News Staff

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) - Pittsburgh City Council has voted to amend the city's eviction moratorium.

The vote provided "clarification" for landlords and make it enforceable.

The changes make clear who can be evicted and will reduce fines for landlords who break the law.

That change will decrease the fine from $10,000 to $1,000.

The law still would ban landlords from evicting tenants who can't pay their rent due to pandemic-related job losses.
