HAWAII KAI SATELLITE CITY HALL TO OPEN LATER THIS YEAR
The City will open its 11th satellite city hall in Hawaii Kai in late September, bringing a full range of City services to the residents of East Honolulu.
“The 53,000 residents of East Honolulu have waited a long time for a storefront satellite.” Mayor Jeremy Harris said. “In just a few months, we will replace the mobile satellite bus that visits Hawaii Kai three times a week with a permanent office open Tuesdays through Saturdays.”
“Hawaii Kai is a busy commercial center on Saturdays with people coming from all over East Honolulu,” the Mayor added. “We decided to open this new satellite on Saturdays so people can do their business with the City at the same time they’re shopping in Hawaii Kai.”
The new satellite city hall will be located behind Roy’s Restaurant in the Hawaii Kai Corporate Plaza at the corner of Kalanianaole Highway and Keahole Street. Situated in the first floor of the Corporate Plaza with a courtyard waiting area, the new satellites be open Tuesday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. The 1,800 square foot office will have four customer service counters where customers can handle a full-range of motor vehicle transactions.
Additional City services will include: picnic and camping permits, bus passes, spay/neuter certificates, disabled parking permits, loading zone permits, fireworks permits, and licenses for dogs, bicycles and mopeds. East Honolulu residents will also have access to City and State job information, register to vote and pay their water and property tax bills.
Mayor Harris thanked Councilmembers Duke Bainum and John Henry Felix for their help in restoring the funding in the FY 2003 operating budget to operate this new satellite.
Long-time satellite manager Elizabeth Lee will become the manager of the new facility. Her staff are also experienced satellite employees who live in the East Honolulu community.
The build-out of the office space at the Hawaii Kai Corporate Plaza will be handled by MJ Construction Company, the low bidder. Work is scheduled to begin in mid-June and be completed by mid-September this year. The project cost is estimated at $196,900.
