A Message From Mayor Steve Noble:
Dear Friends,
As most of you know, we recently had a busy weekend here in the City of Kingston. I want to congratulate all of the graduates of the Kingston High School Class of 2017! I'm very proud of all of our young people who have worked so hard towards this achievement. We will keep working diligently to build a city filled with opportunities so that recent graduates like these can live and work in our community. 

This weekend also included two incredible shows starring Bob Dylan and His Band at the Hutton Brickyards. I appreciate all of the efforts of the Bardavon, Hutton Brickyards, our local public safety agencies, and all of the staff and volunteers who worked together to make both of these events safe, fun and successful.
