Hawai‘i Island Mayor Harry Kim issued an Emergency Proclamation on Wednesday, Sept. 6, 2017, regarding the North Kona water emergency.

“The Emergency Proclamation which was officially signed today was initially intended to be completed in August,” said the mayor. “The purpose of this proclamation is to ensure that all administrative readiness is established by the county in the event that assistance will be needed from the state government.

“This proclamation also allows county government to bypass certain procurement policies in the event that emergency purchases must be made,” the mayor continued. “This also includes the use of emergency funds for the use of the Department of Water Supply’s needs.”
