City of Kingston City Council Meeting Citizen Notes On Open Speaking Session Issues

At tonight's City of Kingston City Council Meeting (Open Speaker Session), UC Legislature, Jeanette Provezano spoke on behalf of keeping the Ulster County Health Center in County (versus making a transition to private) hands. Two employees of the facility also spoke (in a similar manner) on this topic - and a very good case was built (in my opinion) for doing so.

Also discussed were issues of public safety (blocked roadways) / children on bikes with no helmets - and the registration / regulations / fees / etc. for lawn and/or garage sales.

A possible bike helmet collection and give-away is reputedly in the works.

The garage sale issue [John Burridge showed up with a petition with 511 signatures against limiting / regulating and/or charging a fee for garage / lawn sales) - and this issue seems to have been dropped (?) for the time being.

We did not stay for the rest of the City Council meeting; but what we saw / heard "was" interesting; and I wish more people would (when they can) attend.
