2nd Annual Kingston Clean Sweeps. Register Now.

Volunteers will once again take to the streets with brooms and brown bags in hand for the Second Annual Kingston Clean Sweep on Saturday, April 30, 9am to noon. Last year, the immensely successful event netted four tons of litter lying along the “Kingston corridor” from the Thruway Circle through uptown Kingston and down the length of Broadway to the Rondout waterfront.  Many other service organizations plan to join FHK in the task as they did in 2010.  Mayor James Sottile has pledged backup support from the city DPW and Steve Noble, environmental educator for the city, will again be the liaison between the Clean Sweep Committee and the Mayor’s office. Anyone who wishes to participate can sign up for a number of projects by visiting the Forsyth Nature Center “Kingston Clean Sweeps” registration page.

City of Kingston Tweets.

Good news! The city of Kingston is finally working to access social media outlets to communicate with the citizens of Kingston.  We’ve been trying to get them to pay attention in this way for years. Back in the stone age, BW. (Before WordPress).  Remember yahoo groups? HTML?

That was so 2006.

Follow the city and get up to date (fingers crossed) information that should alert you to all kinds of things such as public meetings and hearings to snow emergencies and removal.

Special thanks to the good works of Kingston
citizens Claudia and Mike D’Arcy. I saw the proposal that they created for the city to help them to better understand the benefits, and it was quite comprehensive.
