City Clerk of Chicago, Anna Valencia Resumes Mobile City Hall Initiative
After a temporary hiatus, City Clerk Valencia brings back Mobile City Hall initiative with two stops in its first week
CHICAGO -- In an effort to bring city services directly to residents, City Clerk Anna Valencia, in partnership with various City departments and sister agencies, Aldermanic offices and community organizations joined forces to bring back Mobile City Hall.
“It is our responsibility as elected leaders to ensure government is accessible to everyone, regardless of their zip code,” said Clerk Valencia. “Folks shouldn’t have to take a day off of work to access vital city services.”
The Office of the City Clerk first launched Mobile City Hall in 2019, hosting over 20 across the city. In its first week this year, Mobile City Hall events took place at Garfield Park and Jesse Owens Park in Calumet Heights.
From August through October, Mobile City Hall will be held regionally on select weekdays, nights and weekends to ensure these services are conveniently available to hard working Chicagoans. 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:
Chicago Park District
Mayor’s Office for People with Disabilities
Office of Emergency Management and Communications
Streets and Sanitation
Department of Finance
Commission on Human Relations
Department of Transportation
Dates for September and October Mobile City Hall events will be announced shortly. Note that the organizations and sister agencies may change at each event.
