Mismanagement Zoo: Is Honolulu burning $3M to demolish kiosk and put up sign?
By News Release @ 8:01 PM :: 7032 Views :: Maui County, Education K-12

$3million to tear down  Pretty nice kiosk...

KHON: Channel 2 News on city mismanagement -- "Tearing down the kiosk and installing the sign will cost the city about $3 million."

from (Panos Prevedouros mayoral campaign)

The City of Honolulu is spending $3 million to demolish an informational kiosk near the entrance to the Honolulu Zoo and erect an entrance sign in its place.

Why even remove the informational kiosk before the major APEC meeting?  It can be fully staffed during the meeting. Also, with so many volunteer organizations, the lack of volunteers to staff it shows the real disconnect between city government and the people.

$3,000,000 can buy a lot of things including a luxury home in Hawai`i. Spending  this money to demolish a 150 square foot kiosk to put up a Zoo sign is simply mismanagement of taxpayer dollars.


UPDATE: Hannemann/Caldwell spokesman Bill Brennan claims this is a false report and Civil Beat takes his word for it
