The 1211 John Counter Blvd. City offices will reopen to the public on August 17, allowing individuals requiring in-person services to access the facility Monday to Friday between 8:30am and 4:30pm.
“We want to emphasize that, while we’re resuming in-person operations, we will continue to offer a full range of services remotely. There will still be limitations on in-person services offered, as our focus will still be on continuing our operations virtually,” said Paige Agnew, Commissioner of Community Services for the City of Kingston.
A number of healthcare measures will be in place when the facility opens, including COVID-19 screening questionnaire and a sign-in sheet at the door for all individuals entering the building, masks or face coverings required while in the facility, and members of the public will be required to keep 2 metres between themselves and others.
Planning Services, Building Services, Licensing and Enforcement Services, and Engineering Services will continue to be available to access virtually. According to a media release, meetings with applicants or residents will continue virtually and all in-person meetings will need to be scheduled in advance by contacting the appropriate staff member.
Residents can also apply for a building permit or submit a development application online through the City’s online development and services hub – DASH.
