XI. COMMITTEE REPORTS.
A. Parks and Recreation Committee – Chair, Jon Chinen
1. Bill 24(2014)-Camping fees for City Parks. The Bill passed third reading at the City Council by a unanimous vote. The bill addresses a gap in the camping fees by adding a category to accommodate groups that are barely over 100 persons, but significantly under the next highest category of 250 persons. The Mayor has until June 23 to sign, veto, or pass the bill without his signature.
2. Kailua Beach Park Comfort Station-The Committee is aware of the news reports regarding the state of the comfort station on the Kailua side of Kaelepulu Stream, and has asked the Mayor’s representative to update the Board during a future Mayor’s Report. The Committee is concerned about where the City is on the timeline to replace the comfort station, and if the funds allocated for design lapsed with the close of the last Fiscal Year.
