New County Civic Center Move Schedule

January 16, 2011
By

Hawaii County’s West Hawaii Civic Center has been completed, and they’ve announced their move schedule.   Mayor Billy Kenoi said the new facility on Kealakehe Parkway at the intersection of Ane Keohokalole Highway, just north of Kealakehe High School, has come in on time and under budget.  Kenoi said in an exclusive interview with Big Island News Center that as contractors asked for any change orders, he and his team asked two questions:   will it delay the completion?  will it add to the cost?  He said neither of those was acceptable.   He also said he sees the West Hawaii Civic Center as a community gathering place.

During the move, citizens may experience delays in being able to reach West Hawaii county workers; therefore, call Hilo if immediate assistance is needed.

The move schedule:

* Driver’s Licensing and Motor Vehicle Registration offices will be
closed on Jan. 25-26 and will reopen in Building C on Jan. 27.
