NEW SATELLITE CITY HALL OPENS IN HAWAII KAI
Mayor Jeremy Harris announced today that a new satellite city hall offering a broad array of city services for residents of East Honolulu will open this Saturday, January 18,
at 10 a.m.
The Hawaii Kai Satellite City Hall will be located in Suite 101 on the ground floor of the Hawaii Kai Corporate Plaza, at 6600 Kalanianaole Highway.
“East Honolulu will now have convenient access to a full-range of city services at this new satellite which will be open Tuesdays through Saturdays,” Mayor Harris said. “That makes four of our satellites offices open on Saturdays. The other satellites open Saturdays are at Ala Moana Center, Windward Mall and Pearlridge Center.”
For the past 14 years, East Honolulu has been serviced three days a week by a mobile satellite. The mobile will be discontinued when the full-service satellite opens.
Nineteen city transactions will be offered at the new satellite city hall, including all motor vehicle transactions, camping and disabled parking permits, bus passes, pet sterilization certificates and fireworks permits. Hours of operation will be 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. Free parking will be available.
The satellite covers 1,800 feet of floor space and will be managed by Elizabeth Lee. The principle design architect was Bill Chang, assisted by Mike Kodama. Construction was done by MJ Construction Company and the construction manager was KFC Engineering Management Inc. The total cost of the project is $200,000.
