Ige extends Kauai flood recovery help

LIHUE — Gov. David Ige signed a fourth supplementary proclamation extending the emergency relief period for the Kauai floods that occurred in April 2018.

This fourth supplementary proclamation, which applies to Kauai only, once again extends the authority to spend state funds as appropriated to protect the health, safety and welfare of Garden Island residents.

The proclamation also supports the state’s effort to provide quick and efficient relief of suffering, damage, and losses caused by the flooding.

Gov. Ige signed the initial emergency proclamation on April 15. A supplementary proclamation was issued on April 18 with a second supplementary proclamation issued on June 17. Acting Gov. Douglas Chin signed the third supplementary proclamation on Aug. 16.

This fourth supplementary proclamation extends the disaster emergency relief period for Kauai until Dec. 14.

    Emergency relief is helpful, no doubt, but what we really need is to open up the North Shore to vacation renters. So many people up here rely on renters for jobs and businesses. How long before other businesses fail? Will our mayor do anything? does he care? I suspect he’s too busy campaigning to care about those of us who have no work due to the silly moratorium on vacation rentals.
