In last week’s council meeting, the city also granted noise bylaw exemptions to arts and culture events in order to provide some help to the recovering arts sector.

Also effective June 30, sports fields will be open for team play. Permits will be required and will be coordinated with partner and adult groups.

Indoor athletic facilities will remain closed to the public.

Aquafit classes will expand to 15 people per class, and outdoor fitness classes will also begin on June 30.

Starting July 5, the Kingston Area Recycling Centre (KARC) and Household Hazardous Waste Facility at 196 Lappan’s Lane return to regular operating hours.
