LOCAL STATE OF EMERGENCY
A State of Emergency is hereby declared in Kingston for a period of time beginning at 9:00am on February 4, 2022 and continuing in effect for a period not to exceed five (5) days and ending at 9:00am on February 9, 2022.
The State of Emergency has been declared due to emergency weather conditions produced by the February 4th ice storm, which have created unsafe travel conditions in the City of Kingston. Such conditions threaten or imperil the public safety of the citizens of Kingston. All unnecessary travel is now banned in the City of Kingston until further notice.
As Chief Executive of Kingston, I have exercised the authority given to me under New York State Executive Law, Article 2-B, to preserve the public safety and hereby render all required and available assistance vital to the security, well-being, and health of the citizens of the community.
I hereby direct all City Department to take whatever steps necessary to protect life and property, public infrastructure and other such emergency assistance as deemed necessary.
