Philadelphia Housing Authority to pay City $6.2M for overdue demolition costs

For years, the city has been billing the Philadelphia Housing Authority (PHA) millions of dollars for sealing or demolishing the agency’s dangerous and derelict homes. And for years, PHA has ignored the bills, forcing the city to place liens on nearly 2,000 stand-alone rowhouses or empty lots. Now, after a failed attempt at a settlement in 2009, the sides have agreed to put the matter to rest, with PHA paying the city $6.2 million to clear all liens.
