Tolleson Talks

At the City of Tolleson, we remain dedicated to having conversations with guest speakers from various city departments and making them available to everyone. 

Tolleson Talks is a community forum for updates and answers to questions from the public at a personal level. Mayor Juan F. Rodriguez invites you to take part of the in-person Tolleson Talks to learn about different programs and departments within the City. 

Tolleson Talks will take place at  a new location for each event to try out the local hot spots in downtown Tolleson. After Tolleson Talks, those who would like to join, may take a short walk with the Mayor to a free concert at The P.L.A.C.E. (formerly the Splash Pad) 9261 W Van Buren St, Tolleson, AZ 85353.

If you have specific questions for the guest speakers you can submit questions prior to the virtual talks via email at publicaffairs@tolleson.az.gov or by filling out this online form.
