Kingston mayor expects municipal IDs in June

Alfredo Pacheco, of Orange County’s Nobody Leaves Mid-Hudson group, presents an
ID to Middletown Mayor Joseph DeStefano.  Middletown was the first Hudson Valley
city to implement the Municipal ID program, last week.

KINGSTON – City of Kingston residents can expect to sign up for municipal identification cards this summer.

Mayor Steven Noble said the city is ordering the necessary equipment and setting up the procedures and expects the cards to be ready in June.

Because of the anticipated initial response, the mayor is planning on holding a dedicated issuing time.

“One of the things we talked about doing is that on one of the first days actually being having it on a Saturday, because the clerk’s office in general is always super-busy and we would want to be able to devote all of our attention to at least this initial wave of folks who have been kind of pent up in wanting to get one, I think after that we will have a trickle of folks coming in,” he said.

This past week the City of Middletown became the first city in the Mid-Hudson to issue municipal IDs. The cities of Beacon and Poughkeepsie are also working on implementing their ID programs.
