City Hall

City Hall encourages citizens to exercise their civic responsibility to vote. City Hall honors two citizens and one business with special awards for their good work throughout the day. City Hall is also in charge of collecting taxes. A City Hall attorney will work to solve two criminal cases. City Hall will also provide recycling services and work with businesses to teach citizens how to better reduce/recycle/reuse.
