NOTICE OF PUBLICATION AND NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING
Notice is hereby given that the Council of the County of Kaua’i will hold a public hearing on Wednesday, August 3, 2022, at 8:30 a.m., or soon thereafter, at the Council Chambers, 4396 Rice Street, Room 201, Historic County Building, Lihu’e, on the following:
Bill No. 2873
A BILL FOR AN ORDINANCE ADDING A NEW ARTICLE TO CHAPTER 15, KAUA’I COUNTY CODE 1987, AS AMENDED, RELATING TO BUILDING AND CONSTRUCTION REGULATIONS
This Bill proposes to amend Chapter 15 of the Kaua’i County Code 1987, as amended, by adding a new Article 5, that describes how permit holders may amend or otherwise keep their permits up to date with current information on the licensed contractors doing the work on projects. The purpose of this Bill is to ensure that the County is made aware of which contractors are working on permitted building projects, and to ensure that the County is timely made aware of violations and disciplinary actions that impact the County’s role in enforcing the Building Code.
Bill No. 2874
A BILL FOR AN ORDINANCE AMENDING SECTIONS 25-11.1, 25-12.1,
25-13.4, AND 25-13.9 OF THE KAUA’I COUNTY CODE 1987, AS AMENDED, RELATING TO SEWERS
This Bill proposes to amend Chapter 25, Sections 25-11.1, 25-12.1,
25-13.4, and 25-13.9, Kaua’i County Code 1987, as amended, relating to Sewers, by adjusting the fees associated with sewers, as it has been eight (8) years since the last sewer fee adjustment. The rate increase is intended to implement much needed deferred maintenance and process improvement projects to control future costs, avoid expensive emergency repair, ensure compliance, protect the environment, and avoid consent decrees, and will help to increase operational efficiency and ensure reliable service to customers. In addition, the fees are intended to balance the contribution of General Fund moneys with a user payer structure.
All interested persons who wish to present their comments may do so at the public hearing. Written testimony prior to the hearing would be appreciated. Written testimony can be submitted to the Office of the County Clerk, Council Services Division by mail, facsimile, or via E-mail to email@example.com. Copies of these Bills are available at the Office of the County Clerk, Council Services Division.
(The Council Committee or Council may amend these Bills at their subsequent meetings. Meeting notices are posted at least six (6) days in advance at the County Clerk’s Office and the public may also testify at any of these meetings.)
