PRESS RELEASE – THE CITY OF PHILADELPHIA AND PGW REACH NO-FAULT AGREEMENT WITH DANELLA COMPANIES, INC. See Attached
ATTENTION APPLICANTS TO PENSION BOARD AND SINKING FUND COMMISSION OPPORTUNITIES
The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania enacted Pennsylvania Act 44 of 2009, also referred to as House Bill (HB) 1828, to address, among other topics, campaign contributions to municipal officials or candidates for municipal office and contracts with municipal pension systems. Some of the new requirements are broader than the City’s Philadelphia Code Chapter 17-1400 and it is your responsibility to familiarize yourself with them. The new requirements can be found in Chapter 7-A of Act 44 here. The City will provide further updates as necessary.
CAMPAIGN CONTRIBUTION LIMITS REMINDER FOR THIS ELECTION YEAR
Please be reminded that individuals and businesses whose principals, executives, directors, and partners contribute more than $3,000 (if an individual) or more than $11,900 (if a business) to an incumbent or winning candidate for City office are ineligible under City law for most non-competitively bid City contracts, subcontracts, or financial assistance. The law attributes political contributions solicited by a person or by an officer, director, controlling shareholder or partner of a business or affiliate to be a contribution of that person or business. For more details, please see the information provided in the Disclosure/Eligibility section above.  Please note that these eligibility limits were increased effective January 1, 2016.
LIVING WAGE MINIMUM WAGE STANDARD NOTICE FOR CALENDAR YEAR 2016
Please be advised: Effective January 1, 2016, the Minimum Wage Standard under Chapter 17-1300 of the Philadelphia Code is: $11.94 an hour. This rate is applicable only to new contracts and amendments and renewals of present contracts that are effective on or after January 1, 2016. Section 17-1305(1)(b) of the Philadelphia Code mandates that the Director of Finance for the City of Philadelphia calculate the Minimum Wage Standard every year.  However, the Philadelphia Code makes clear that nothing “limits an employer’s discretion to provide greater wages to its employees.” And, the City encourages vendors who are paying their employees more than $11.94 an hour to continue to do so.
