Follow the banner to our October meeting!
City Charter Amendments:  Representatives of the Honolulu Charter Commission are expected to describe the 20 proposed charter amendments that are up for voter consideration in November. At our September meeting, we voted 12-0 on a resolution asking the Charter Commission to inform the public about the amendments.

Haiku Road Sewer Project: City representatives will describe a plan to install a larger sewer line on Haiku Road from Kahekili Highway to Kamehameha Highway. Work is expected to take place next year. The project is part of a consent decree between the city and the Environmental Protection Agency to deal with sewage spills into Kaneohe Bay.

Mosquito Abatement Resolution: Our vice-chairman, Bill Sager, will present a 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. 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 6, Waikalua; 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.
