Resolution seeks updated financial plan for Honolulu rail-transit project

Advertiser Staff

The Honolulu City Council transportation committee unanimously passed a resolution today requesting that city officials provide the council an updated financial plan for Honolulu's $5.3 billion rail project as well as an accounting of transit fund proceeds and expenses.

Under the resolution, which now goes for a vote before the full council, the council also is seeking a list of all city and contract employees working on the project along with their qualifications, and an updated list of rapid transit contractors and subcontractors.

City Transportation Director Wayne Yoshioka said he would provide the council with the requested information. However, he could not say when the information would be available.
