KIUC member petition falls short

LIHU‘E — Kaua‘i Island Utility Cooperative this evening announced that an insufficient number of valid signatures was submitted on a second petition received by the cooperative on Monday.

KIUC members earlier this month affirmed the board’s action to hire hydropower contractor Free Flow Power.

For a petition to be valid it must contain 250 or more signatures of KIUC members in good standing. At the completion of the verification process by KIUC and legal counsel it was determined that of the 291 signatures submitted 185 were valid, requiring no further action by the KIUC Board of Directors, a KIUC news release states.
