Kings County residents are blessed with very high levels of Community Services. Government, private citizens and volunteers work together to serve our citizens in a variety of ways. From first rate hospital care, education, police and fire protection, all the way to animal control, garbage collection and preparation for natural disasters, there are many groups and organizations that are looking after the best interests of our citizens. The provision of these services is not without its challenges. An aging population, climate change and adequate funding are just a few of the things facing our decision makers as we look towards the year 2050. To learn more about our community services, and the challenges facing them, check out Kings 2050 Background Paper # 5.
