Mayor Rick Blangiardi joined Spotlight Hawaii and discussed a range of issues, including the ballooning cost of the City’s rail project, his office’s homelessness strategy, COVID-19 violation enforcement, and the push by the wedding industry to allow for larger weddings on Oahu.
The mayor said he is asking to meet with Gov. David Ige and Dr. Libby Char early next week, to discuss the possibility of allowing weddings of up to 25 people, up from the current limit of 10, if they were conducted with proper coronavirus mitigation practices.
