The State Department of Transportation is about to embark upon a long-awaited project, the second phase of widening Queen Ka`ahumanu Highway in Kona. From Kona, Sherry Bracken tells us there will be a public information meeting Tuesday evening.
With the severity of the tsunami in Japan and more than $30-million dollars of damage here in the state from our own tsunami, disaster preparedness is very much on the mind of Hawaii citizens.
Hawaii State Civil Defense has set up a Disaster Assistance and Recovery Center in Kona to help those who suffered losses in the March 11 tsunami. From Kona, Sherry Bracken tells us more about the program.
The Disaster Assistance and Recovery Center is at Kona's Old Airport today and tomorrow from 10 am to 4 pm.
It's crunch time for the budget in Hawaii County. The County Council's finance committee will spend today, Tuesday and Wednesday in Hilo analyzing the details. Sherry Bracken reports from Kona.
There will also be a special 8 am Hawaii County Council meeting today to support Mayor Kenoi's request for state and federal emergency tsunami relief.
The public had a chance to weigh-in on Hawaii County Mayor Billy Kenoi's proposed budget this week. A public hearing was held on the Mayor's $366-million dollar operating budget that he is promoting as 9% less than the budget that was in effect when he took office in 2008. From Hilo, Stephanie Salazar reports.
