Eviction ban passed by Pittsburgh City Council | TribLIVE.com

Pittsburgh City Council moved forward Tuesday with a temporary ban on evictions during the emergency created by the coronavirus pandemic.

The legislation, spearheaded by Councilwoman Deb Gross, with support from Mayor Bill Peduto’s administration, and several city activists, was unanimously approved, but only after extensive discussion among council members. They debated whether the law can be enforced.

“The administration agrees that protecting vulnerable tenants during the pandemic is vitally important and will continue to work with Council — as well as county, state, and federal partners — to protect residents from eviction proceedings,” Peduto spokesman Tim McNulty said.
