Honolulu Council Members Push for Audits of HART, Sewer

If the Honolulu City Council has an attack dog, his name might be Edwin.

And on Monday, some members decided to sic him on what they perceive is wasteful government spending.

Edwin, of course, is City Auditor Edwin S.W. Young, whose office is under the umbrella of the nine-member council.

They set his budget and can ask him to investigate matters they find to be troublesome.

He doesn’t always have to do what they ask, however. In fact, he considers himself more watchdog than attack dog.
