Who Manages Our Water?

 


Water – a necessity in our daily lives that we often take for granted. Imagine a day with no access to water to drink, to water the garden or to flush a toilet. How much do we know about the systems that handle our drinking water, or what happens to the water runoff from heavy rainfall? Join the discussion on INSIGHTS ON PBS HAWAIʻI.

INSIGHTS ON PBS HAWAIʻI
Surveillance Cameras in Public Parks

 

Every day thousands of people enjoy the beauty of city parks on the island of Oʻahu. To increase safety at these parks, the City and County has teamed with the Hawaiʻi Tourism Authority to install surveillance cameras at 13 parks across the island. Some have applauded this effort, while civil liberties groups see the cameras as an invasion of privacy. Join the discussion on Surveillance Cameras in Public Parks on INSIGHTS ON PBS HAWAIʻI.

INSIGHTS ON PBS HAWAIʻI
The Road Usage Charge

 

The State uses money from its 16-cents-per-gallon gas tax to maintain and fix roads. But the development of more fuel-efficient cars, and electric and hybrid cars, means less money. Now the State wants feedback on a proposal to eliminate the tax and instead levy a per-mile road usage charge, which it says will cost motorists about the same amount. Join the discussion on the Road Usage Charge on INSIGHTS ON PBS HAWAIʻI. You can phone in, or leave us a comment on Facebook or Twitter.

INSIGHTS ON PBS HAWAIʻI
The Mayors

 

You don’t often see these recognizable figures in the same place at the same time. And when you do, they’re generally attending a ceremonial event or a legislative hearing. This is different. The Mayors who serve different island communities will sit across the table from each other and discuss their island challenges on INSIGHTS ON PBS HAWAIʻI. And they’ll take questions from our moderator and viewers. You’ll hear from two mayoral veterans and two relative newbies: Honolulu’s Kirk Caldwell; Hawaiʻi Island’s Harry Kim; Mike Victorino of Maui County; and Kauaʻi County’s Mayor Derek Kawakami. You can phone in, or leave us a comment on Facebook or Twitter.

Hiker Rescue Fines

 

The number of mountain rescues statewide continues to grow every year, with rescues on Oʻahu nearly tripling over a 10-year span ending in 2016. Emergency rescue squads are often called upon to rescue people who are trespassing on public property. Should the government charge these lawbreakers for the rescue service? Join us for a conversation on proposed Hiker Rescue Fines on the next INSIGHTS ON PBS HAWAIʻI.

Managing Tourism

 

Hawaiʻi’s tourist industry is thriving. Last year, nearly 10 million visitors spent almost 18 billion dollars here, according to the Hawaiʻi Tourism Authority. However, many residents complain of beaches and trails being overrun, and of the wear and tear on Hawaiʻi’s infrastructure. More and more, we hear people saying that the industry needs to be managed, but what does that look like?
