Snow Emergency Update
The City of Kingston declared a snow emergency on Tuesday, January 16th.
That snow emergency and the related parking restrictions remain in effect until 3:00pm on Thursday, January 18th.
This means that:
- Today (Wednesday, January 17th), all vehicles may only be parked at an off-street location or on the odd side of the street.
- Tomorrow (Thursday, January 18th) at 7:00am, all vehicles must be moved to the even side of the street.
Reminder: the "odd side" or "even side" of a street is determined by the house numbers on that street. An "odd day" or "even day" is determined by the calendar date.
Vehicles not in compliance with these parking restrictions may be ticketed and towed.
Vehicles must be moved, regardless of whether or not the weather has improved or the street looks clear.
Please be aware that municipal lots may be posted in the coming days and temporarily closed in order for the Department of Public Works to clear them.

Due to the holiday and snow emergency, trash pick up is as follows:
- Normal Tuesday pick up will be picked up on Thursday.
