Message from the Mayor: Enjoy the long weekend
August 28, 2013 -
Monday, September 2nd, is the Labour Day holiday and I want to wish all Kingstonians a safe and enjoyable long weekend with family and friends.
Labour Day will create some schedule changes to City services and municipal office hours. This includes Kingston Transit, which will run on a Sunday schedule, and garbage, green bin and recycling collection will not be collected on the holiday. For a detailed list of services and offices affected by the holiday please visit the City of Kingston website at www.cityofkingston.ca
City parks, splash pads and the outdoor aquatic park at the Memorial Centre will be open holiday Monday for families to enjoy. Plan a picnic at a City Park, go for a walk on your favorite trail, cool off at one of the City's splash pads; however you choose to spend your Labour Day holiday, I hope you take advantage of all that our great City has to offer!
Residents who want to add some green to their weekend activities are encouraged to travel by transit, visit www.cityofkingston.ca/tripplanner for more information.
Wishing you a safe, fun and happy weekend.
