A REMINDER TO VEHICLE DRIVERS IN PUALANI ESTATES
The Association has received complaints that drivers are ignoring stop signs posted within our Community.
The recent complaint noted that drivers in the Ho'okuku Moho and Ho'omama Streets area tend to slow down and keep on going without making a COMPLETE stop at the stop sign. Residents and visitors to Pualani Estates are to observe posted traffic signs and other traffic safety controls at all times.
BILL 281 TO BE INTRODUCED BY COUNCILWOMAN EOFF
The following was received from Karen Eoff, Council Vice Chair – District 8, North Kona. If approved by the County Council this may very well apply to "Barrett’s case" (planned development next to Pualani Estates).
Bill #281 will be introduced by Karen on September 16, 2014 at approximately 11:00 a.m. The purpose of this ordinance is to amend the Hawai'i CountyCode to require that P.U.D. permit applications be reviewed and approved by either the Leeward or Windward Planning Commission.
This is a change from the current process in which the director of planning has exclusive discretion to approve or disapprove Planned Unit Development (P.U.D.) Applications. It affords more transparency and opportunities for public comments. Feel free to review the bill, and attend the meeting if you so desire. We welcome your testimony.
This bill will be referred to both planning commissions on this day for recommendations, then sent back to this committee for discussion, then to full council for decision making.

COMMUNITY NATIONAL DRUG TAKE-BACK INITIATIVE
The Hawaiʻi Police Department is encouraging the public to participate in a nationwide prescription drug take-back initiative being sponsored in Hawaiʻi by the Drug Enforcement Administration, the state Department of the Attorney General and the Department of Public Safety.
On Saturday, September 27, members of the public may turn in unused, unneeded or expired prescription medications between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. at the following collection sites for safe, anonymous disposal:
Ponahawai Medical Complex parking lot
670 Ponahawai Street,
Kona police station parking lot
74-611 Hale Makaʻi Place,
Tablets, capsules and all other solid dosage forms will be accepted. Intravenous solutions, injectables and syringes will not be accepted.
Illicit substances such as marijuana or methamphetamine are not a part of this initiative.
Having unused and expired medicine in your home increases the risk of prescription drug abuse and accidental poisoning. Proper disposal also helps reduce the risk of prescription drugs entering a human water supply or potentially harming aquatic life.
For more information about the drug take-back program, visit www.dea.gov.
