PITTSBURGH — A community council is suing a number of officials, alleging they failed to ensure that landscaping standards remained high.
East Allegheny Community Council filed a complaint on March 6 in the Allegheny County Court against Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto and the Director of the Department of Permits, Licenses and Inspections Maura Kennedy.

The plaintiff is seeking all reasonable sums due, attorney fees and court costs. The plaintiff is represented by Colin Miller.
The Allegheny County Court Case No. is 19-3204.
