Honolulu Council: More Money for Roads, Parks

Chad Blair/Civil Beat

Honolulu City Council members outlined hundreds of millions of dollars in proposed increases to capital spending, a departure from Honolulu Mayor Peter Carlisle's plan to drastically reduce funds for capital projects.

Carlisle proposed cutting capital monies 35 percent as a way to reduce the city's longterm debt. But City Council members want to reclaim some of that money to fix roadways, improve parks and study traffic patterns, among other proposed projects.

Have feedback? Suggestions?
