Ongoing Business

Kukilakila Island Project Bill presented bids for dredging between the shore and the Kukilakila Island. The lowest bid came from Pono Pacific and was for $2100. The largest bid was $3700. The work would include using an excavator and hauling away the sediment. There was a question about what volume will be removed. Bill will follow up. Bob will get the permit for the work. Discussion of sharing the cost with Kukilakila was held. Gus moved to finance the project with Pono Pacific. Kelly seconded the motion. The vote was 6 for and 2 against the motion. The motion carried.

Lake Health/siphon project/City Permit/Berm Opening The siphon project has been delayed. The City has decided to issue a one month at a time permit for the berm opening instead of for multiple openings. There is no opening schedule at this time. Bob will contact Councilman Ikaika Anderson, the KNB and Mr Yuen from DFM to discuss an ongoing permit.

Development of wetland property adjacent to Kaelepulu Stream A mainland company is making a wetland determination. In the meantime heavy equipment is used on occasion which is a violation.
