County building roof leaks after $27M renovation

By Associated Press


HILO — Hawaii County Councilman Dominic Yagong says he can't believe the roof of the county building is leaking after a $27 million renovation.

The building on Aupuni Street in Hilo reopened last October.

Yagong says the county needs stronger control over its contracts to ensure work is done properly and that costs don't escalate. He says "It's imperative that the county get its money's worth."

County Public Works Director Warren Lee told the Hawaii Tribune-Herald that the new roof won't be accepted as "complete" until the leak issue is resolved. Only then will the 10-year warranty start.
