On behalf of the Special Independent Advisory Commission to Review and Evaluate the Department of Licenses and Inspections, we invite you to provide the Commission with your thoughts, concerns, compliments, and experiences with respect to Philadelphia’s Department of Licenses and Inspections.

We are asking you, the public at large – private citizens, business owners, city workers, contractors, developers, etc. – to share with us any information that you would like to provide. We also extend a special invitation to all L&I employees – current and former – to also share your thoughts.

Our charge is wide-ranging. We are studying and analyzing all aspects of “L&I” including the department’s structure, management, operations, policies, procedures, and customer service. We will issue a comprehensive set of findings, conclusions and recommendations to Mayor Nutter by September 15, 2014.

As you may know, the Mayor created the Commission in the wake of the deadly building collapse at 22nd and Market Streets on June 5, 2013. All members of the Commission take this solemn responsibility very seriously. The Commission is dedicated to developing a set of progressive proposals that will improve public safety for the City of Philadelphia and its citizens well into the future.

You may contact us 24/7 in one of three ways: send us an email (SIAC@PHILA.GOV), call us on the telephone (844.603.5070), or fill out the contact form on this site. You may remain anonymous if you choose. If you desire, we will have a member of the Commission staff meet you at an agreed upon, mutually convenient location for an interview. The choice is yours.

The opportunity for public input will end on August 15, 2014.

We look forward to hearing from you.
Glenn Corbett, Commission Chairman Peter Vaira, Executive Director
