LIHUE — The Kauai County Council will hold its first meeting of the new year on Wednesday at the Historic County Building, starting at 8:30 a.m.
The agenda is a relatively short one, containing only six items, all of which appear to be fairly routine.
The council will consider a request from Deputy County Engineer Lyle Tabata to write off an “uncollectible delinquent landfill account.” County records show that AR Construction Services, LLC — a business that operated in Lihue from 2006-2016 — ran up about $5,000 in fees for use of a county landfill, but has not made a payment on its account since 2016.
Tabata’s request includes a memo from the county attorney’s office stating that attempting to collect on the outstanding debt “would be futile,” because AR Construction Services “appears to be defunct.” The company had its general building license terminated in 2014 and it no longer occupies the building it once operated out of.
The next item is requesting the disposal of old Transportation Agency records, like time sheets, schedules and purchase orders — that have been stored longer than the mandatory seven years required by state and county laws.
The housing agency is requesting council approval to spend up to $510,000 for the purchase of a home for resale to a participant in the county’s affordable housing program. The house is a three-bedroom, two-bathroom home on a 6,000-square-foot lot on Kula Mauu Street in Kapaa.
