The council seems to be afraid to pursue landlords that have homes that are vacant which are in need of upkeeping.

Let's hope this passes. A little help goes a long way.
Senate Unanimously Approves Bill to Fight Blight
HARRISBURG – The Senate unanimously approved legislation today to help municipalities prevent blight and remediate abandoned properties, according to State Senator David G. Argall (R-29).
Senate Bill 900, sponsored by Argall, would hold property owners accountable for the costs to secure, remediate or demolish blighted structures. The bill would also expedite the process of prosecuting owners of blighted properties and give municipalities the authority to go after the financial assets of negligent owners. Today's vote was the first time legislation of this kind has been approved by either the House or Senate.
"I introduced this bill 13 months ago to continue to the work of my predecessor, Senator Rhoades," said Argall. "This is far from the original legislation he introduced 3 years ago but the goal is still the same, the elimination of blight in the areas that he and I grew up in, and I am happy with the product that we have sent to the House."
Senate Bill 900 would allow for the extradition of out-of-state property owners who have housing code violations pending against them.
In addition, the bill would permit local governments to deny permits to owners of blighted properties, and develop an education program for judges and district magistrates relating to blighted and abandoned property. The legislation would also create county housing courts to fight blight at the local level.
Argall's legislation was based on the findings and recommendations of the Blight Task Force, a statewide coalition of housing and municipal organizations dedicated to tackling the problems of blighted and abandoned buildings across Pennsylvania first established by Senator Rhoades.
Senate Bill 900 now goes to the House of Representatives for its consideration.
