Annual Reports

Since 2009, the Department of Licenses and Inspections has been providing Annual Reports in accordance with our goal of promoting transparency, accountability and ultimately, better service to the citizens of our great city.

A change is underway at the Department of Licenses and Inspections. Thanks to the tireless efforts of the department's employees, wait times are shorter, service delivery is faster, the department's operations are more cost effective and we are improving the quality of Philadelphia's neighborhoods.

Some of the notable accomplishments include legislatively reducing the number of license types from 138 to 35 to make the economic development process easier, substantially reducing the average cost of demolitions, and eliminating the backlog of clean and seal service requests.
