2021 Annual Report: City of Kingston balances immediate citizen needs with Council priorities

During the COVID-19 health emergency, the City of Kingston continues to be here for residents. It supported the community by establishing resources to help businesses, created grant programs for sectors impacted by the pandemic, introduced property tax deferrals, invested in supports for people experiencing homelessness, enhanced cleaning and safety measures at municipal facilities, and so much more.

As the City responded to the community’s immediate needs, it actioned deliverables outlined in the City of Kingston’s Strategic Plan (2019-2022). Key highlights are captured in the 2021 Annual Report.

“In 2019, City Council identified five strategic priorities that would guide the work of staff for the next four years. Never could we have imagined what would come next. COVID-19 placed immense pressure on every person; financially, mentally, and physically. It changed how we live and work,” said Lanie Hurdle, City of Kingston Chief Administrative Officer.

“I am immensely proud of the work staff achieved not in supporting our community and in realizing Council objectives,” added Hurdle.

Community members are invited to read the 2021 Annual Report now.

The report features messages from Mayor Bryan Paterson, CAO Hurdle, City Treasurer and CFO Desiree Kennedy, notable successes and pandemic initiatives as well as project progress in the areas of climate action, housing affordability, improvements to roads and paths, economic development, and fostering healthy and vibrant spaces.

“The City of Kingston is at work for you,” said Hurdle. “It’s our hope that every member of the community can feel pride at what we have achieved – together!”
