Hawaiian Homes Commission Chair Micah Kane will update the governor’s Kaua‘i Community Advisory Council Wednesday on Department of Hawaiian Home Lands initiatives in the state, highlighting those that directly affect Kaua‘i.
The council will meet at 5 p.m. at the Kaua‘i War Memorial Convention Hall, 4191 Hardy St., in Lihu‘e. The public is invited to attend.
Gov. Linda Lingle created community advisory councils to give the Neighbor Islands a stronger voice in state government. The Kaua‘i Community Advisory Council holds monthly public meetings to seek community input and advise the governor of important issues, public priorities, and recommendations for state boards and commissions.
The members of the Kaua‘i council are James Anakalea, Stewart Burley, Linda Collins, Vilamor Galiza, James Itamura, Maka‘ala Ka‘aumoana, Barbara Smith, Matt Takata and Leo Trinidad.
Anyone with special needs requiring accommodations to participate at this meeting should call 274-3100 for assistance at least four days prior to the meeting.
