A Boston Chief Chat will soon offer residents a chance to air their grievances and ask questions of city leaders at the City Hall To Go truck.
"Chief Chats" will kick off with Brian Swett, chief of Environment, Energy, & Open Space at the Bowdoin Street Health Center in Dorchester on June 13. Felix Arroyo, chief of Health and Human Services, will follow on June 21 in Hyde/Jackson Square in Jamaica Plain.
The repurposed 1985 bomb squad vehicle, which travels throughout the Hub, has gained national and international attention and inspired nearly 20 other cities to follow suit and further explore the mobile municipal program.
"These cities are also hoping to increase interactions between their residents and local government, and we’ve engaged in great dialogue around improving and refining the way we provide city services," said Danielle Valle Fitzgerald, the program's director.
