I’m sad to see the 3-Can Plan going away in my neighborhood. What does the County plan to do with the green waste and recycling containers? If they are going to trash them, can citizens keep these to use on their own?

Are there any restrictions on transporting kayaks on one’s car or truck? I’ve seen some cars that have a kayak that extends at least 5 feet in both the front and rear of the vehicle.

Ask The Mayor: Is The County Replacing Road Sign?
January 18th, 2015 · 1 Comment · Comments Via Facebook (0) · Maui Discussion
 

My question is in regards to the attached road sign, located on Keolani Place airport access road. The sign is located just at the airport exit, opposite Hemoloa Street. The sign has been vandalized for a number of years now, and has not been repaired or replaced. Can the County replace or repair the sign?

Ask The Mayor: Is It Legal? Wearing Seat Belt Under Arm?
January 18th, 2015 · 2 Comments · Comments Via Facebook (0) · Maui Discussion
 

I recently received a ticket for wearing my seatbelt shoulder strap under my armpit. The ticket has no box to check, other than “No seatbelt.” Should I have been fined? From what I have read in the rules of the road book, no law is stated.

Why are the Hookipa Beach Park bathrooms still closed? They’ve been closed since June 2014. Hookipa was voted third-most visited place, behind the crater and the road to Hana! C’mon Mayor! Give Hookipa our bathrooms back

My trash did not get picked up today, and I’m wondering if we are eligible for a reimbursement for these missed pickups? This is a service I paid for, like my cable and electric bills, so can’t I get a refund when they don’t pick up my rubbish?

Ask The Mayor: Are Grocery Store Plastic Bags Banned, Too?

I know that Maui has banned plastic bags in the stores but, I’ve noticed lately that one large, Hawaii-based supermarket chain has been using them. They are reusable, but I don’t know if they are biodegradable. Can you please look into this?
