‘Glitch’ stays City Hall To Go’s Egleston visit

A computer glitch killed the City’s new resident service vehicle’s first visit to Egleston Square on Jan. 16. The truck remains out of commission for the time being.

The last minute cancellation, announced through the truck’s Twitter feed, was due to a “computer glitch,” City spokesperson John Guilfoil told the Gazette. “We hope to have the problem fixed shortly and to have the truck out there again as soon as possible.”

“Obviously, it’s a new program. There’s bound to be a couple of glitches along the way,” Guilfoil said. He could not clarify what the glitch was.

While there is no reschedule date yet, the City expects the truck to have its touring schedule soon, Guilfoil added.

Jullieanne Doherty, Jamaica Plain’s coordinator for the Mayor’s Office of Neighborhood Services, withstood the snow and rain to assist Egleston residents instead.

Residents can get a library card, request a birth certificate, dog license or resident parking permit, register to vote or any of the 15 or so other services offered.

City Hall To Go has a Twitter account, @CityHallToGo. For more information, see cityofboston.gov/cityhalltogo.
