Soccer Field – Teen to Pay

The 17 year old driver who did donuts on four soccer fields at John Machin Soccer Park will be paying for the repairs.  Kingston Police say the teens parents have assured them taxpayers will not be responsible for the cost of repairs – estimated at over $5,000.

There’s no word on when the fields will be ready for use again after repairs were made last week.

Napier Street

Kingston city council may decide on the future of Napier Street as a through street when it meets tomorrow night.

The city is considering closing the block of Napier between Mack and Brock Streets.

If it is closed it would become part of the park being created on the property that used to be home to St. Joseph St. Mary Catholic School.

A staff report contains three options…leave the street the way it is at no cost…close Napier Street and create a new driveway for the home at Mack and Dundas at a cost of up to 80 thousand dollars…or close the street and create a cul de sac at a cost of up to $710,000.
