Hale Mauliola construction contract awarded

News Release from City and County of Honolulu August 19, 2015

Sand Island – Container Storage of Hawaii, Ltd. was selected this past Friday to construct the container living units at Hale Mauliola transitional housing and services center at Sand Island.  The $523,517 contract will be implemented in three phases and serve as transitional housing for up to 83 persons in 25 containers by the end of the year.

Twenty units will be available to couples, thirty-nine units to individuals, and four of the 63 total units will be Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant.  Each unit will be separate and lockable, offering security and privacy to inhabitants.  Insulation, reflective exterior coating, screen shade over roofs, screen doors, and screen windows will be used to keep the units cool.  The one acre site will also have showers, bathrooms, and dining areas.

Phase 1 includes the installation of the first nine containers with an estimated delivery date of October 30.  An additional eight containers will be installed for Phases 2 and 3, with anticipated delivery dates of November 27 and December 18, respectively, for a total of 25 containers.

The Institute of Human Services was previously awarded the services contract for Hale Mauliola, which includes the operation of an intake center and program office as well as case management.  This will be a low-barrier approach, with fewer rules in place to encourage the participation of people who may not seek help at a traditional shelter.  Pets will be allowed as long as they are not dangerous.  Hale Mauliola will feature 24-hour security and staffing.

Mayor Caldwell takes action on bills

News Release from City and County of Honolulu August 19, 2015

Honolulu – Mayor Kirk Caldwell today took action on several bills adopted by the Honolulu City Council on August 5th.

Although Mayor Caldwell introduced the initial sit-lie bill in Waikiki and is a strong supporter of sit-lie as a means to keep public sidewalks safe and accessible to businesses in areas zoned for business and commercial activities, he vetoed Bill 44.  As with Bill 6, a previous sit-lie bill that was vetoed by Mayor Caldwell, Bill 44 raises constitutional concerns, threatens to prompt costly lawsuits, and could invalidate the existing sit-lie ordinances.  (Mayor's letter to the Honolulu City Council here.) 

Mayor Caldwell signed into law Bill 46, relating to city-owned streams, as an additional tool the Department of Facility Maintenance enforcement team can use to keep city streams clear.

Mayor Caldwell also signed into law the following bills:

Bill 24, CD1, FD1    Relating to car sharing.

Bill 30, CD1             Relating to the real property tax exemption for credit unions.

Bill 42, CD2, FD1    To establish a fund to address mitigation costs relating to the construction of the rail transit project.

Bill 45                      Relating to baby diaper-changing accommodations.
