Philadelphia City Council looks to regulate satellite dish placement

We’re here to help you! The Philadelphia City Council wants to regulate the placement and color of residential satellite dishes.

On Thursday, Clarke is expected to offer final amendments to a bill requiring satellite companies to try to install dishes somewhere other than the front of a building. Roofs, rear or side yards, and backs of buildings all are acceptable, the bill says. The measure would also require some customers to paint their dishes to match the front of their buildings.
