HEARINGS FOR NEXT WEEK/RAIL AND TSUNAMI DEBRIS JUSTICE

ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE MEASURE

Budget Committee Chair Ann Kobayashi has scheduled our resolution 11-349 that requests the Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation (HART) to compensate the community inundated with rail construction debris - for a hearing on February 28 @ 9 a.m. See agenda here. Please provide testimony. Your assistance and cooperation is greatly appreciated.

REFUSE COLLECTION DISPARITY

Many townhome and condominium complexes are not in receipt of city refuse collection services and have to pay higher maintenance fees for private refuse collection. I have been asked to fight for these homeowners and create a special class of property tax - to offset the expense. I came up with Bill 6 to address this disparity - and this measure will also be heard in the Budget Committee this Tuesday. Instructions to send in testimony can be reviewed in the agenda.

TSUNAMI DEBRIS CONTINGENCY PLAN

I have another resolution being heard - reso 12-15 to address what is going to happen to all of the debris coming from the floating trash pile that is to hit Hawaii's shores - from the tsunami/earthquake that hit Japan. See agendahere. Let's make certain the plan is not to dispose of all the trash on our side of the island . . . if so, we want to be compensated!
