Honolulu City Councilman Trevor Ozawa is replacing Councilman Ikaika Anderson as chairman of the influential Zoning and Planning Committee under a new committee assignment lineup.

Today’s announcement, released by Council Chairman Ernie Martin, came a day after a move to strip Anderson of his title as Council vice chairman was nixed at the last minute.

The Executive Matters and Legal Affairs Committee, which had been led by Ozawa, will now be chaired by Councilman Ron Menor.

The Public Health, Safety and Welfare Committee, which had been chaired by Menor, will now be led by Councilman Brandon Elefante.

The Business, Economic Development and Tourism Committee, which had been chaired by Elefante, has been dissolved.
