Vanpool, Senate Outreach, Mosquito Control On Agenda For Kaneohe Neighborhood Board

The agenda is set for our meeting on Thursday, November 17, and we hope you will join us. Details are below. To review the complete agenda online, click on this link.

Follow the banner to our November meeting.
Rideshare by Enterprise: Account Representative Kanani Iaea is scheduled to describe a new vanpool program that the city hopes will get 1,050 drivers off the road. In the program, the city will provide $1 million for two years to help motorists form vanpools that use Enterprise vehicles. Vanpool riders will pay $100 per month.
Senator’s Constituent Services: Kathy Bryant, an outreach liaison for Senator Brian Schatz, is expected to give a brief presentation about the senator’s office services and youth programs.
Mosquito Control Study Resolution: Our vice-chairman, Bill Sager, will present a revised resolution supporting research on eliminating mosquitos from the state. The resolution will ask the Legislature to authorize the University of Hawaii to do the research. The resolution was revised after Board members raised questions at our October meeting. The revised version clarifies that mosquitos represent a threat to humans as well as wildlife, and that the study should encompass the entire state. A decision on the resolution is expected at our meeting.

Other Business: Our agenda always includes time for reports from the Fire and Police Departments, Marine Corps Base Hawaii, elected officials from the state and local levels, community organizations, and our Board committees.

Vacant Seats: Three seats are currently open on the Board. They represent Sub-District 4, Keahala; Sub-District 8, Kapunahala; and Sub-District 12, Pikoiloa. The Board is authorized to fill vacancies by appointment. Community members may indicate their interest by contacting Board Chairman Mo Radke or by attending a Board meeting. A map of the district is available online, as is a street index that is organized by sub-district (search for District 30 in the index, then find the sub-district).

Details: The Board meeting will take place in the cafeteria of Benjamin Parker Elementary School, 45-259 Waikalua Road, starting at 7 p.m.

Issue Update – Charter Amendments: The results of the vote on 20 proposed amendments to the city charter are available online.
