The kiosk will be equipped with a touch-screen monitor, a scanner and a printer to dispense officially recorded documents and payment will be available by credit card. This kiosk is in conjunction with a joint services counter offered in the Planning and Development Department Development Center on the second floor and is an example of the partnership between Maricopa County and the city of Phoenix to ensure better service for customers.</p><p>"We strive to raise the bar on customer service and ensure that customers receive the very best we can offer," said Alan Stephenson, director of the city of Phoenix Planning and Development Department. "By partnering with Maricopa County to create a one-stop shop in City Hall, we can save customers time and help them focus on their projects."</p><p>Phoenix City Hall is located at 200 W.
