State workers responsible for cleaning palace sidewalk

By June Watanabe

POSTED: 01:30 a.m. HST, Apr 01, 2014

~~<p><strong>QUESTION</strong>: Who is responsible for cleaning the leaves/trash on the outside fence of Iolani Palace from the first gate on Richards Street to the Hawaii State Library facing South King Street? Since June 2012, every afternoon after work, I walk from downtown to the Alapai bus station. I pass the palace, and it is not appealing to see old leaves, papers, twigs, etc. I do not know when was the last time this long stretch got cleaned. This is a busy area with locals and tourists. I'm assuming Iolani Palace is not responsible, otherwise that area would be cleaned.</p>
<p><strong>ANSWER</strong>: The state Department of Accounting and General Services is responsible for maintaining the sidewalk area fronting Iolani Palace and Hawaii State Library.</p>
