Poor reliability could mean penalties for HECO

KHON: … Officials with the Public Utilities Commission are looking to hold Hawaiian Electric accountable as businesses work through filing their claims after the power disruption on Thursday, June 13….

“They measure this over a year, and in that year’s time they can give them incentives or penalties, including financial penalties,” Kwan said. “When we have their data on their outage, if we can see that they’ve fallen behind on those performance measures at the end of the year when they calculate that, we could impose a penalty on that.”…

With more than 100 patrol cars on backorder, HPD officers report delays getting on the road

HNN: … HPD has been waiting years for backordered patrol vehicles to arrive — and now some say the situation is beginning to impact officers’ work.

HPD currently has about 400 vehicles but the numbers are dropping every year because replenishing the fleet has stalled. More than 100 have been ordered since 2021, Hawaii News Now has learned, not one of those has been delivered.

Records provided by the department show the last shipment to arrive was part of the 2020 request. HPD asked for 30 cars that year; 28 arrived nearly three years later.

In 2021, the department wanted to purchase 65 vehicles. Not one of those has been received from the seller. In 2022, HPD tried to buy 30 cars and the agency is still waiting for the order to be filled.

And then last year, HPD put in for 40 vehicles but the request is still currently out for bid.

Injunction: Haiku Stairs group files appellate case

SA: … The Friends of Haiku Stairs’ recent legal injunction to stop the city’s demolition of the World War II-era staircase, above Haiku Valley and the H-3 freeway in Kaneohe, will be decided upon in a different state-level court.

During a June 7 status conference in their case, 1st Circuit Senior Environmental Judge Lisa W. Ca­taldo directed that the Friends’ May 31 “request for an injunction pending appeal” — related to its rejected 2023 lawsuit, the first of two, in which an appeal was later sought — must now be filed with the state’s Intermediate Court of Appeals, according to Justin Scorza, the Friends’ vice president.

“(Cataldo) said she didn’t believe she had jurisdiction because it was on appeal, and thought that the appellate court would be the right court to file it in,” Scorza told the Honolulu Star- Advertiser by phone…
