JOINT STATEMENT OF MAYOR MICHAEL A. NUTTER AND CITY COUNCIL PRESIDENT ANNA C. VERNA

Like many Philadelphians we are very concerned about recent revelations regarding the BRT. We have known for some time that there needed to be significant change at this organization.

The issues that have been raised in recent news accounts represent a culture that is unacceptable in city government. There must – and will be – massive change. Not only do Philadelphians deserve a tax assessment that is fair and accurate, they have to have faith in those trusted to oversee the tax assessment system.

Understanding this, the Nutter Administration and City Council will work together to reform, restructure or dissolve the BRT as quickly as possible.
