Ask the Mayor: Are There Water Saving Devices at Beach Parks?
March 2nd, 2015 · No Comments · Comments Via Facebook (0) · Maui Discussion
 

I’ve heard that Maui County gives out water-saving devices for free. If that’s the case how come they don’t give some to their own parks department?

Ask the Mayor: Is it Legal? Safety Stickers on Windshield
March 2nd, 2015 · 1 Comment · Comments Via Facebook (0) · Maui Discussion
 

Safety check is here again. My question is regarding stickers on front and rear windshields. If it’s illegal for stickers on the front or rear windshield, why isn’t it an issue for those vehicles with SHOPO (Police Officers’ Union) and IAFF (Firefighter’ Union) stickers?

With new infestations of the Little Fire Ants, and with Maui Invasive Species Committee Manager Teya Penniman being quoted as saying they “clearly don’t have enough resources to stop it,” is the County having any immediate success getting more funds?

I read that a recent wastewater spill in Waiehu was blamed on a power outage. What I’m wondering is, don’t the plants have backup generators?

Ask the Mayor: How Do I Dispose of Old Appliances?

I recently bought a new refrigerator but the store wanted to charge me a lot to deliver the new fridge and haul away the old one. I ended up bringing the new fridge home in my truck, so how do I properly dispose of the old one?

Ask the Mayor: What is That Smell in Waiehu Terrace?
February 23rd, 2015 · No Comments · Comments Via Facebook (0) · Maui Discussion
 

I was wondering what’s going on here in Waiehu Terrace? The smell of the breeze is very unpleasant, and it smells like a farm (i.e. animal waste). It’s been like this since last January, and the smell is still really bad.

Ask The Mayor: Why Isn’t Trash Picked Up Before Roadsides are Mowed?

My question concerns the roadside mowing being done by the county. Couldn’t the county hire some people or solicit volunteers to do roadside cleanups the day before mowing?
