Restoring City Bus Service: Hearing This Wednesday
By Tom Berg @ 3:41 PM :: 6357 Views :: Maui County, Education K-12


From Councilmember Tom Berg
KITV highlighted resolution 12-177 in its news coverage yesterday. This reso was introduced to restore city bus service without raising fares. See the news story - click here.
Resolution 12-173 is another attempt at restoring bus service and was also covered in the news on KHON - click here for that story.
Both resolutions will be heard in the Budget Committee this Wednesday. For the agenda, please click here.
A big mahalo to Council Chair Ernie Martin for co-sponsoring these resolutions with me and to Budget Chair Ann Kobayashi for scheduling them to be heard.
Yes, HART has cut its public outreach by 70% - from 24 entities making over $4 million a year, to 9.5 positions . . . but I contend that only one position is needed for public relations and that resolution - 12-160 will be heard in the Budget Committee this Wednesday.
Rail is not even operating yet. So why are 9.5 positions still on the payroll to pitch and sell rail - to force-feed us pure propaganda? All HART needs to do at this stage is let us know when and where construction is going on and one person can convey that to the public, period.
Please consider testifying and offering support - click here for agenda.
