“City Hall to Go,” a truck offering various City of Boston resident services, will make regular Jamaica Plain stops starting today, July 5.

The first stop will be at 12:30 p.m. at 3091 Washington St. in Egleston Square. The second stop will be 4 p.m. at Centre and South streets in Monument Square.

In future months, the truck will stop at those places on the first Thursday of every month.

Modeled after food trucks, the truck offers a “menu” of City services delivered by City Hall staffers. People can request a birth certificate, register to vote and get a resident parking permit, among many other services.

The truck made a successful test stop at the Egleston Square location early this year.

Official City publicity claims the truck’s stops will be determined by Twitter requests and announced only by tweets, but the City’s press office gave the Gazette the above location information. For more information, see cityofboston.gov/cityhalltogo or call 617-635-4500.
