Boston's City Hall to Go truck is headed back to West Roxbury on Wednesday. 

The truck, which allows residents to bring their issues and discussions to city hall officials directly, will be in West Roxbury from 4 to 7 p.m. at 1716 Centre St.

By using the truck, officials aim to serve city residents where they live and work, without them having to travel downtown to the main location of Boston City Hall itself. The truck offers a select menu of city services directly to residents, who can pay or dispute parking tickets, request birth or death certificates, obtain a dog license, request a parking permit or pay property and excise taxes.

New to the truck this year is the launch of a feature dubbed "Chief Chats," or a time designated for city officials to answer questions and address concerns of local residents. 

"City Hall to Go is one of many programs that the city of Boston has created that encourages participatory democracy," Boston Mayor Martin Walsh said in a statement. "With the truck in the community, residents will be able to engage directly with members of my administration and to reach necessary city services in a convenient and local access point."

Brian Swett, Chief of Environment, Energy, & Open Space, will be the first to participate in "Chief Chats" on June 13 at the Bowdoin Street Health Center in Dorchester. Felix Arroyo, Chief of Health and Human Services, will appear the following week on June 21 in Hyde/Jackson Square in Jamaica Plain, officials said.
