Food truck inspired government
Thank you, support for all things MyWHaT is appreciated.
Engage & Outreach
Boston’s Mobile City Hall Truck appears to be a roving box of engagement, service, and creativity. It’s an example of the direction government needs to head: reaching out to residents, instead of being satisfied with minimum standards of outreach.
Launched in 2012, the food truck inspired government office on wheels offers a chance for residents to pay parking tickets, get library cards, pet licences, and register to vote without slogging down to City Hall. It is also used for events and a means to meet residents where they are to collect their questions, concerns, and opinions.
Certainly, not for every city, but the willingness to try something new, have fun with it, and error on the side of outreach is exemplary. Cheers Boston!
If you could get a taco with it, it’d be perfect. What do you think?
