The City of Kingston’s Public Works department is hosting Public Works Day on Saturday, May 27.  

The open house will take place at the Public Works headquarters, 701 Division St., from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. This family friendly event will feature vehicles and machinery from Public Works and other City departments such as Solid Waste, Utilities Kingston, Engineering, Kingston Transit and more.
