City Clerk Announces Mobile City Hall Initiatives
The Office of the City Clerk, along with various City departments and sister agencies, Aldermanic offices and community organizations are joining forces to bring all of City Hall’s services to the community.
Today, Chicago City Clerk, Anna M. Valencia, announced the launch of the new Mobile City Hall initiative. From June through October, Mobile City Halls will be hosted regionally and will be held on select week days, nights and weekends to ensure these services are conveniently available to hardworking Chicagoans. At these Mobile City Hall sites residents will not only have access to city services but an opportunity to ask questions and gain a better understanding of the services City Hall offers.
At Mobile City Hall sites residents can access many of the services that the City Clerk’s office offers including:
- Purchase City Stickers;
- Purchase Residential Parking Daily Permits;
- Obtain dog licenses;
- Apply for a CityKey; and,
- Learn more about the Chicago Rx Program.
“City Hall services should be available to all Chicagoans regardless of their ZIP code,” said
Clerk Valencia. “That’s why I’m excited to announce the launch of our Mobile City Hall and I’m even more excited to work together with all of our departments, community partners and Aldermen to ensure city government is accessible to all of our residents.”
Residents will also have access to the various services and resources that many of the partnering organizations and sister agencies offer. Along with the Office of the City Clerk, Mobile City Hall will have the following partners at many of the site locations:
311, Animal Care and Control, Chicago Housing Authority, Chicago Park District, Chicago Public Library, Chicago Rx, Chicago Transit Authority, Divvy Bike, Department of Finance, Mayor’s Office of People with Disabilities, Red Cross/Lifesource, and iCash.
“We are excited to partner with the City Clerk on the Mobile City Hall initiative, as we share the commitment to meeting Chicagoans where they are and minimizing barriers to basic access,”
said Chicago Public Library Commissioner Brian Bannon. “Providing every Chicagoan with access to knowledge, information, experiences, and resources is fundamental to Chicago Public Library’s mission, and the foundation of a functioning democracy.”
“The Chicago Park District is excited to partner with the City Clerk’s office to bring valuable resources and services to Chicagoans through the innovative Mobile City Hall program,” said Chicago Park District General Superintendent and CEO Michael Kelly.
