Waikiki road rules get handed off to noncity group

Honolulu Star-Advertiser - - VIEWS & VOICES - By Gene Wein­garten

It’s con­cern­ing that bills al­low­ing a new non­profit to set up park­ing fees, over­see freight and pas­sen­ger de­liv­er­ies and make other traf­fic rules in Waikiki won City Coun­cil back­ing on Wed­nes­day.

Plus, if ap­proved by Mayor Kirk Cald­well, the Waikiki Trans­porta­tion Man­age­ment As­so­ci­a­tion — an off­shoot of the Waikiki Im­prove­ment As­so­ci­a­tion — will score a cut of cash col­lected from park­ing and other trans­porta­tion-re­lated rev­enues. (Park­ing me­ters across the is­land now gen­er­ate a to­tal of $4 mil­lion a year.) Honolulu Hale of­fi­cials should not be hand­ing off pub­lic over­sight re­spon­si­bil­i­ties.
