Place your order! Local governments are taking after food trucks and serving up convenience at a curb near you. That's on this episode of Municipal Equation, the podcast from the N.C. League of Municipalities about today's challenges, trends and concepts for cities and towns. We talk with the City of Boston about its City Hall To Go program, which converted an old food truck into a city hall on wheels. Yes, that means it travels from hotspot to hotspot to make it easier for residents to connect with local government and access services. Since Boston pioneered it four years ago, several other U.S. cities have joined the fleet -- most recently Durham, North Carolina, with whom we discuss the program. Could it work in your hometown?
