Mayor wishes community a safe and happy holiday

Wishing all Kingstonians a safe and enjoyable holiday season! During the holidays we gather with family and friends to celebrate and reflect on the year past and look forward to the year ahead. There is a lot to see and do in our community during the season including public skating and visiting with Santa in Springer Market Square, volunteering your time at a local agency or taking in the exhibition games for the World Juniors at the Rogers K-Rock Centre.

Ring in the New Year at the K-Town Countdown

The annual K-Town Countdown on December 31 from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Rogers K-Rock Centre is a free event the whole family will enjoy. The New Year's celebration includes skating, live entertainment, wagon rides and a fireworks finale at 9 p.m. For full details visit the City website at www.CityofKingston.ca

Join me for the New Year's Levee

The New Year's Levee is an annual tradition inviting Kingstonians to join their local elected officials to celebrate the New Year. Join me, MP Ted Hsu, MPP Sophie Kiwala, and councillors on January 1 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. in Memorial Hall, City Hall.

The holiday season will create some schedule changes to City of Kingston services and municipal office hours. This includes Kingston Transit service as well as the green bin, garbage and recycling schedule for the Christmas and New Year's holidays. Municipal offices, including Housing and Social Services on Montreal Street and Provincial Offences, will be closed December 25, 26 and January 1. For a detailed list of services and offices affected by the holiday, please visit the City's website at www.CityofKingston.ca
