Kalepa Village may add up to 30 apartments

HANAMA’ULU — County Council Chair Ron Kouchi yesterday said he appears to have

been successful in securing $1 million in federal funds, which will be used to

construct 20 to 30 new rental apartments at the county’s Kalepa Village

affordable rental project here.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture is the

source of the funding, said Kouchi, back from a trip to Washington, D.C. last

week to discuss electrical cooperatives and other power issues with the

National Association of Counties.

While there, he and Wally Rezentes, Sr.,

administrative assistant to Mayor Maryanne Kusaka, also met with staff members

of U.S. Sen. Dan Inouye and U.S. Rep. Patsy Mink, on a number of issues.
