Asleep at the switchTo the Forum:

This is a follow-up to the letter sent you recently from June Stark in which

she complained about the new berm on the new estate being developed just south

of Kilauea.

That area is not the only one containing berms or dense hedges

which block out the view plain for all the rest of the citizens of this island.

It’s about time to see that these berms and thick hedges are removed so that

everyone has a view plain as required by laws on the books.

The same

applies to the berms and hedges as applies to sea walls, which are also

restricted but neglected.

Some one is asleep at the switch! Let’s find out

who’s responsible and take appropriate action to eliminate these eye sores,

whether it be the county council or some other political entity.

If those

responsible do not do their duties which they are obligated to do, it is time

to reduce their salaries by the percentage of work they are not


Let’s stop this free ride stuff and make those responsible for

maintaining the view plains, and other neglected entities on this island, do

what is required of them. And let’s forget this hang loose attitude of our

elected and appointed officials and insist they do the job they are paid to do.

Some of these people forget they are our employees, not our
