As beach days, barbecues and celebrations abound, I want to take a moment to share a warm mahalo for your support as we continue to take strides toward improving the quality of life for you and your ohana. Without your unwavering support we could not have secured the funding in next fiscal year’s budget for important projects in our Leeward communities.

This is why I want you to know that next week the City Council will consider passing this budget and sending it to Mayor Caldwell for his signature. In addition to the budget, there are several other important issues the Council will consider that may affect you and your family. I want you to know what they are and how to have your voice heard, which is why I encourage you to submit written testimony or sign up to speak at the meeting on these important issues:

Bill 26 (2013) – Addressing agricultural dedications for real property taxation purposes.

Bill 65 , CD1 (2012) – Adoption of a revised Ewa Development Plan.

Resolution 13-114 (2013) – Urging the formation of a Varona Village working group to address the housing needs and recommend alternatives for the property’s disposition.

Resolution 13-74, CD1 (2013) – Requesting the Honolulu Police Department to provide for firearm permitting and registration at the Kapolei and Kaneohe Police Stations.

To provide testimony on these bills and resolutions that will be considered by the City Council on Wednesday, June 5, 2013, call 768-3816 or visit http://www1.honolulu.gov/council/testify.htm to submit written testimony or register to testify in person that day.

ABANDONED TIRE TASK FORCE SEEKS DOCUMENTATION OF TIRE DUMPING PROBLEM; PLANS TO MEET AGAIN AT THE END OF SUMMER

The second Abandoned Tire Task Force meeting was held on 5/30/13.  Attendees heard a presentation from AES, who recently started a tire to energy project at Kalaeloa.  Attendees also discussed possible initiatives to combat the abandoned tire problem, such as reinstating the $1 per tire surcharge for replacement tires, waiving fees for new tires in exchange for used tires (similar to the car battery program), charging disposal fees for tires purchased online, requiring car recyclers to accept cars with tires, stricter monitoring of tire haulers, and others.

Several representatives from the Wai`anae Coast attended the meeting.  Johnnie-Mae Perry, Chair of the Wai`anae Neighborhood Board and a member of Nani O Wai`anae, brought photos to document the tire dumping problem in areas such as Paakea Road.  Victor Flint reported that the US Navy has installed a Police Skytower at LLL Gate 8 along Paakea. HECO is installing the cameras at their Elecrical Sub-Station across from Gate 8. HECO will be monitoring the area around their Elec Sub-Station to include Gate 8. If they notice any suspicious activity, HECO will call the police.

The Task Force is seeking documentation of the tire dumping problem in our state, in the form of photos, reports, and other information.  The Task Force plans to meet again around the end of the summer, in preparation for its deadline to report back to the Legislature in January 2014.  Its meetings are open to the public.
