Mayor Billy Kenoi and select cabinet members will tackle current Hawaii County issues at the Kona-Kohala Chamber of Commerce 2014 Focus Luncheon from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 27, at the Courtyard King Kamehameha’s Kona Beach Hotel.
Sponsored by the Hawaii Community Federal Credit Union, the annual luncheon offers a unique opportunity for the local community to meet with county department representatives in a casual setting.
Attendees will have the opportunity to have lunch with a specific department as well as pose questions to the mayor and other cabinet heads.
Issues to be included in the discussion include the possible increase of the General Excise Tax via a county surcharge, the county’s solid waste management plan, the GMO bill, and the quest to reopen the Kona International Airport international arrivals facility.
Cost for the luncheon is $45 for Chamber and Rotary members, $55 for nonmembers. No walk-ins allowed. For more information and/or to register, visit kona-kohala.com or call the Chamber office at 329-1758.
