HILO » Construction is under way for new cargo facilities to serve Hilo International Airport.

The Hawaii Tribune Herald reports that grading and excavating work is on schedule and construction has begun on new cargo facilities for Hawaii island.

Gov. Neil Abercrombie was joined by area politicians and state representatives earlier this month as they broke ground on the $14 million construction project. Isemoto Contracting Co. is spearheading the 63,000-square-foot building to serve the cargo needs of East Hawaii. Abercrombie has hailed the project as a necessary boost for the island's economy.

If that had been for Kauai or Maui there would have been a protest. "Not in my backyard", they would say. But they are more than happy to receive the benefits from it.

Sad! Sad! Sad! This project would have been completed at least 10 years ago, at no cost to the state, if DOT would have let a private landowner and a private developer go ahead with their plans to build the cargo port. Completed, and at no cost to the State. All it would have taken was a little coordination and cooperation. Poor administrators, poor planning and very poor fiscal responsibility makes for poor taxpayers.
