Council initiates Ka’u remote testimony site


A new County of Hawaii remote testimony site opens next week in Ka‘u.

For the first time, residents will be able to provide testimony at the Hawaiian Ocean View Community Center at 92-8924 Leilani Circle.

Councilmember Brittany Smart said, “I am very pleased that the Ka‘u testimony site is now available. It is extremely import for the people to participate in local government. The Ka‘u region is underserved by County of Hawaii services and this is one small step in the right direction.”

According to County Clerk Jamae Kawauchi, “We have all been working diligently to get the remote testimony site in Ka‘u established so that the public can participate in council and committee meetings. We are very hopeful that things will run smoothly on this test project and are proud to bring it to fruition.”

“Councilmember Smart worked extremely hard to provide her district the opportunity to conveniently participate in government. The Council is pleased to support her vision and leadership,” Council Chairman Dominic Yagong said.

Residents are encouraged to attend meetings and have their voices heard. The meetings begin at 9 a.m.
