Bring the kids to the Public Works Open House
May 12, 2015 -
Check out the view from the driver's seat of a snow plow, street sweeper or fire truck during the free Public Works Open House, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, May 23 at the public works yard at Railway and Division Streets (enter off Railway Street).
"Public works crews play the important role of maintaining our roads, sidewalks, parks and green spaces," said Mayor Bryan Paterson. "Come to the open house to learn how staff do what they do, get an up-close look at the vehicles used and meet the people who make Kingston work."
The open house marks the end of National Public Works Week and celebrates the contributions of City workers such as snow plow drivers, street sweepers and firefighters. Visitors will learn about public works services (roads, parks, horticulture, engineering, forestry and solid waste), Utilities Kingston, Kingston Police and Kingston Fire & Rescue.
