Darryl Oliveira has been chosen to stay on as Hawaii County Civil Defense director.
The county hired Oliveira, a former fire chief, for the position on a temporary basis in January.
A selection process began earlier this year, and Oliveira was selected as the best candidate, Mayor Billy Kenoi said Wednesday.
“Darryl Oliveira is a unique, qualified person,” Kenoi said. “I couldn’t be happier.”
The selection should be finalized in about a week, he said.
