Bill No. 2910
A BILL FOR AN ORDINANCE AMENDING CHAPTER 6, ARTICLE 13,
KAUA’I COUNTY CODE 1987, AS AMENDED, RELATING TO RECOVERY OF RESCUE EXPENSES
This Bill proposes to amend Chapter 6, Article 13 (Recovery of Rescue Expenses), Kaua’i County Code 1987, as amended, to: (1) more closely reflect the wording of Hawai’i Revised Statutes Chapter 137 (Search and Rescue Reimbursement Act) and improve enforcement of the law by limiting automatic Office of the County Attorney involvement to operations involving search and rescue expenses of one thousand dollars ($1,000.00) or greater, and by requiring that incident reports also be prepared and transmitted for these operations; and
(2) establish a “Search and Rescue and Wildfire Response Donations Account” to accept voluntary monetary contributions made by persons in support of County of Kaua’i search and rescue efforts and wildfire response. Funds deposited into this account shall be expended for search and rescue expenses and for wildfire response. The funds collected shall not lapse at the close of the fiscal year.
Any person may testify at the public hearing, and at any Council
and Committee Meeting (at which time any Bill may be amended).
Meeting notices and full-text Bills are available at least six (6) days in
advance at the Office of the County Clerk, Council Services Division and kauai.gov/Government/Council/Webcast-Meetings. Written testimony may be submitted via firstname.lastname@example.org, mail, or fax. For further information, please call (808) 241-4188.
