City of Kingston
Mayor's Message

Dear Friends,

The storm that hit our area this weekend was short but powerful, leaving behind it a path of downed trees, branches and wires. I want to thank our Department of Public Works who worked in partnership with Central Hudson to clear as much debris as possible so that roads could be reopened and power could be restored. In addition, both our Police and Fire Departments responded to a great number of calls related to the storm. Thankfully, there were no reports of serious injury and most customers had their power restored within 24 hours.
Besides the detours due to tree removal this weekend, traffic patterns in Kingston, particularly on Broadway, have undergone some major shifts over the past few weeks. Construction season is upon us and while it is challenging to have our main thoroughfare severely limited, the work being done is essential to sustain and improve our infrastructure and to avoid even more costly repairs down the road. I understand that these detours present more than just added time to our commutes; for our local businesses and residents in the immediate vicinity of these major projects, the impact can be far greater. Over the next few weeks, I will be outlining a few of our current and upcoming capital projects so that each of you can understand why they are happening, how they may impact your neighborhood, and how this work will improve the infrastructure we all rely on.
Thank you for your patience while we continue to build a stronger city!

Community Spotlight

The Food Bank Farm Stand's Chef Challenge at the People's Place 
was an amazing success. The event brought chefs from around the region and challenged them to create meals using the items available at the free farm stand hosted at the People's Place each Tuesday morning (beginning at 9:00 am.) The results were both tasty and nutritious. By the end of the morning, hundreds of people had watched the exciting challenge and left with bags full of free produce to create their own healthy meals.
