No. 1125/Bill No. 201 <br /> PLACE: Council Chambers <br /> Kailua-Kona, Hawai`i <br /> TIME: 2:25 p.m. <br /> Council Chair and Members <br /> Hawai`i County Council <br /> Hilo, Hawai`i 96720 <br /> Your Committee on Finance, to which was referred Bill No. 201, reports as follows: <br /> Bill No. 201, transmitted by Finance Director Deanna S. Sako, via Communication No. 1125 dated <br /> September 28, 2018, amends Ordinance 18-69, as amended, relating to Public Improvements and <br /> Financing thereof for the Fiscal Year July 1, 2018 to June 31, 2019. <br /> This bill adds the Parks and Recreation Island Wide Tennis Facilities Installation and Improvements— <br /> Private project for $100,000 to the Capital Budget. Funds for this project shall be provided from the <br /> Private Contributions, from the United States Tennis Association. <br /> Council Member Dru Mamo Kanuha asked Roxcie Waltjen, Director of Parks and Recreation, if these <br /> were monies from the United States Tennis Association (USTA) to the County of Hawai`i, of which <br /> Ms. Waltjen confirmed. Mr. Kanuha gave a little history on the monies coming to Hawai`i County from <br /> USTA. USTA wanted to partner with the County of Hawai`i and contribute towards projects and they <br /> were going through the process they came across the Old Airport that was in need of upgrading such as <br /> lights and resurfacing. Among other projects, USTA wanted to contribute to upgrading some of the <br /> tennis facilities, in particular, in West Hawai`i. <br /> Committee Chair Maile David asked Ms. Waltjen if she had any idea of other tennis facilities around the <br /> island they will be using the funds for. Ms. Waltjen stated that they have not yet decided but there are a <br /> few that really need upgrading. <br /> Your Committee on Finance is in accord with the purpose and intent of Bill No. 201, and recommends <br /> its passage on first reading. <br /> dmm <br /> AYES NOES ABS EX Respectfully submitted, <br /> CHUNG X <br /> DAVID X COMMITTEE ON FINANCE <br /> EOFF X <br /> KANUHA X <br /> LEE LOY X <br /> O'HARA X <br /> POINDEXTER x MAILE DAVI , - 'AIR <br /> RICHARDS X FC REPORT NO.: 150 <br /> RUGGLES X ADOPTED: NOV 0 2 2018 <br />
