Public Invited to Harbor Meeting Wednesday

May 7, 2012

The 2012 Annual Meeting of the Hawaii Fishing & Boating Association will be held on Wednesday, May 9, 2012,  at 5 p.m. at the Hawaii Big Game Fishing Club at Honokohau Harbor. Everyone is welcome to attend, become members of the Association and help to improve management of Honokohau Harbor and  harbors in general as well as improve the regulatory process that accompanies a state-owned  facility.


This last year has seen the Association dealing with ever-changing politics, inattention to the harbor,many maintenance issues and on-going management issues. The board has discussed water line failures  and water pressure issues; rest room repairs; inappropriate language in rules and regulations and  recently a state audit of the harbor hoping to assure financing for Honokohau improvements and future  management of Honokohau.


Activism and advocacy by members of the harbor community led to the recent paving of the perimeter road, a new water line, financial commitments for solar lighting and additional paving.


Other issues on  the horizon could be internal signage at the harbor; a sewage pump out facility; organization of an  informational network within Honokohau and another of the very popular Swap Meets later this  summer.


There is more information on the HF&BA website at  or call Marni Herkes at 987.2171
