The City Hall is an infrastructure building which can be build on all game zones separately but only one. After building the City Hall, two neighbours can be hired for collecting Residence  Population sm and TAX  Coin sm automatically (only when the game is open) at the cost of wages  Salary sm2 . Contracts are not collected or renewed.

A City Hall lets you hire your friends for fiscal or administrative positions. This allows you to automate tax collection and population censuses.


Each collection requires 1  Salary sm2 or 2  Salary sm2 . Automatic collections occur once per second as long as the game client is running. Automatic collections stop when the game client is closed or the wage  Salary sm2 amount is zero.

Starting in Update/04.02.2013 the wallet has partially replaced the envelope as the Salary icon. Until the old icon is purged from the game, we will continue to use Salary sm2 to represent Salary. Currently the wallet icon is only seen when receiving daily gifts.

Hiring a Tax agent or City administration employeeEdit

Tax agent: Automate TAX  Coin sm collection.
City administration employee: Automate Residence  Population sm collection.

City hall dialog
Players can choose to hire NPC (Kevin as Tax agent or Olivia as City administration employee) or neighbors for free. Collections are done by the game client, not by neighbors, even if you hire a neighbor to be a collector.

Steps to hiring:

  1. City hall menu
    Select the City Hall
  2. Select Hire from the Dialog window
  3. City Hall Menu appears, select Hire for the role you want hired
  4. Select an NPC or a neighbor. The process starts instantly and doesn't require the neighbor to accept the job.

TIP: Firing a collector will stop collections for the role terminated. e.g., if you fire the Census Taker, then all Residential collections must be performed manually. This is useful if you are more interested in VAT/Tax than you are in population. You can also fire the Tax Collector and keep the Census Taker if you are more interested in collection residences.

  2. Select Hire. City Hall menu will open.
  3. Select Replenish. Wage Fund menu will open.

Q: I was given a 20  Salary sm2 , 40  Salary sm2 , 50  Salary sm2 , 100  Salary sm2 megabuck reward for completing a quest or for daily play, but they weren't added to my account. How do I get my missing megabucks?
A: Salary  Salary sm2 and Megabucks  Megabucks sm are often confused as they have a similar icon-- but they are not the same icon or the same item.

Q: What happens if I receive Salary rewards without a City Hall?
A: Players are still credited with Salary, but there is no way on Android or iOS clients to verify this until the player builds a City Hall. It is possible to check Salary rewards on Facebook/PC; see the next question. (This was tested by recording current Salary count in City Hall; Demolishing City Hall; Receiving a Salary reward; Building City Hall & checking Salary count.)
