Mayor signs 10th emergency proclamation

LIHUE — Mayor Derek S. K. Kawakami has signed a 10th supplementary emergency proclamation on Monday for the County of Kauai, extending the emergency relief period for damages sustained during the April 2018 flood.

The disaster emergency relief period shall now continue until terminated 60 days after Aug. 26, or by a separate proclamation — whichever comes first.

Due to the reopening of Black Pot Beach Park on July 22, the emergency rule relating to commercial boating operations in Hanalei has since been rescinded.

Recreational boaters are reminded to use the mauka boat ramp which can be accessed between 5 a.m. and 10 p.m. daily. Recreational boaters may also use the Weke boat ramp between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m., after obtaining a recreational use permit from the Department of Parks and Recreation.
