This morning we testified at the County Council’s Budget and Finance Committee meeting in favor of BF 108, which is for rehab of four East-West roads (Kukanihakoi, Waipuilani, Lipoa and Welakahou) in Kihei. The previously approved funds lapsed at the end of December because of a bid protest. So this action is asking this Council’s committee to reinstate the funding. Then the DPW can have the financing, wrap up the protest and get the contractor(s) to begin the process.
Upon conclusion, Chair Hokama voiced support of our request, so our expectation is this will soon be before full council, be supported and (we believe) Kulanihakoi will be the first of the four repaved this year. Stay tuned.
