WAIANAE SUSTAINABILITY COMMUNITIES PLAN PASSES CITY COUNCIL - WHAT'S NEXT?
The Mayor is to decide soon as to whether he will approve Bill 50 or not (he has 10 working days to take action which would be March 2) - and if he vetoes it, the Council will take up a public hearing to either sustain the veto or override it (a two-thirds or six votes are needed to override a veto). For all of you that did not like the outcome of Bill 50 CD2, you still have time to lobby the Mayor for redress up until that March 2 date.

EXTENDING WAIMANALO GULCH LANDFILL CONTESTED CASE HEARING
I listened in to testimony presented on February 8 at the Mission Memorial Auditorium on the case that will determine if the Waimanalo Gulch Sanitary Landfill will have its operations extended for another 15-years. A petition accompanied by testifiers pleading against the extension was presented and numerous Leeward Coast residents made excellent witnesses and put up a great argument to shut down that landfill. Stay tuned.
