Message from Councilmember Kym Pine
Aloha, May 31, 2013
The beginning of summer brings with it a full schedule of activities for our residents. 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.
To see a complete list of Bills and Resolutions that the Council will consider at next week’s Council Meeting, please visit: http://www4.honolulu.gov/docushare/dsweb/View/Collection-1777
With a strong showing of support from our Leeward communities, I have no doubt we can continue to serve you and your ohana over the months and years ahead!
Mahalo nui loa for your continued support,
