The City of Salem today launched City Hall To Go, a new initiative to help connect residents with the municipal services and answers they need. The program will bring City services and departments out into the community at the Farmers Market, block parties, neighborhood associations, festivals, and more.
For the first several utilizations the City will have a kiosk set up, but a surplus public vehicle is scheduled to be repurposed and used in the near future.
“We want to make it easier for people with questions or who are in need of assistance to access basic municipal services,” said Mayor Kim Driscoll. “City Hall To Go brings important City services to where people are, making it easy for residents to get the services and answers that they need.”
Salem City Hall To Go will first appear at the Ice Scream Bowl during Salem Heritage Days, on Salem Common, Tuesday August 9th from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. It will also be out, in conjunction with the Salem Police Department’s community relations unit, at the Mentor’s League basketball game at Palmer Cove Park, the evening of August 18th. Those interested in scheduling City Hall To Go to visit during their public event can inquire by calling 978-619-5625.
