Critical Commentary

This article was recently published by the Seattle Pi, detailing an extension the city has placed on eviction moratoria. While the article doesn't specify whether utility moratoria was extended, it does say city officials recommend their constituents call utilities to arrange for payments. That said, while the moratoria on evictions does protect families from being evicted if they cannot make a payment, it does not protect against evictions due to safety and health reasons.  Additionally, given there is no further extension on the utility moratoria, renters could still be facing the threat of shut-offs as they attempt to cope with all living expenses (utilities, rent, food shopping, masks and other sanitation requirements).
