Council to discuss cemeteries

Kauai County committees are scheduled to meet 8:30 a.m Wednesday at the Historic County Building.

Councilmember Felicia Cowden is requesting the presence of the director of Parks & Recreation to provide a briefing on county cemeteries, to include:

• Where county cemeteries are located;

• The demographic characteristics of the Hanapepe Cemetery and areas for possible expansion;

• The Kauai Veterans Cemetery newly-funded columbarium expansion, new burial plot site, and a way to open the cemetery pavilion without disrupting the memorial mosaic that adorns the central area; and

• General rules, regulations, procedures, and costs for families to obtain a grave site for themselves or loved ones in county cemeteries.

Planning Committee Chair Mason Chock is requesting the presence of the planning director to provide a briefing regarding ongoing planning enforcement needs as it relates to increased county compliance issues (including how many cases the county is dealing with, cost, unforeseen issues).

The public is welcome.
