NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING

Pursuant to Sections 91-3 and 92-41, Hawaii Revised Statutes, notice is hereby given that the Department of Human Services will hold a public hearing to consider the new proposed rules of the Benefit, Employment and Support Services Division for the purpose of administering the Supporting Employment Empowerment (SEE) Program, in accordance with federal regulations and state statutes. A brief description of the new proposed rules is provided below:

The Supporting Employment Empowerment (SEE) Program is a business-friendly program that transforms lives by helping Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) cash assistance recipients break multi-generational cycles of poverty, find rewarding jobs in the private sector, and stay engaged in gainful employment. The SEE Program provides on-the-job training and employment opportunities with private sector employers for First-To-Work (FTW) Program participants who may have little or no work experience or basic work skills. The Department of Human Services (DHS) subsidizes a portion of the participant’s wages and direct/indirect costs that the employer may incur such as fringe benefits, training, transportation, etc.  Participating employers set and pay SEE employees’ (FTW participants) wages and benefits. 

The proposed rules outline the requirements for businesses to meet in order to become a participating employer of the SEE Program; the payment process for participating employers to claim reimbursements for wages paid to the participants; and the review process to resolve an employer’s payment dispute.

A public hearing will be held at the following date, time and place:

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING

Pursuant to Sections 91-2 and 92-41, Hawaii revised Statutes, the Hawaii Public Housing Authority (HPHA), Department of Human Services, hereby provides notice that it will hold public hearings on the proposed changes to Chapter 17-2028, Hawaii Administrative Rules (HAR), Federally-Assisted Public Housing Projects, HAR.

Background: Eligibility for the Hawaii Public Housing Authority’s federally-assisted public housing program requires that the applicant shall not have been evicted since March 1, 1985, from a public housing program administered by the HPHA, or any of its predecessors, the Housing and Community Development Corporation of Hawaii, or the Hawaii Housing Authority.
This requirement currently applies to all cases of evictions, regardless of the reason for the eviction. The HPHA seeks to amend the prohibition to remove its application against families who were evicted solely due to failure to pay rent, and do not owe any current outstanding debt to the HPHA or any U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) rental assistance program. By providing these individual families with a fresh start, it will assist in alleviating the State’s homelessness crisis.

Public Review: The proposed changes are available for public viewing at the HPHA and site management offices at the following locations between 7:45 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.:

Hawaii Public Housing Authority       Lanakila Homes

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING

Pursuant to Sections 91-2 and 92-41, Hawaii revised Statutes, the Hawaii Public Housing Authority (HPHA), Department of Human Services, hereby provides notice that it will hold public hearings on the proposed changes to Chapter 17-2028, Hawaii Administrative Rules (HAR), Federally-Assisted Public Housing Projects, HAR.

Background: Eligibility for the Hawaii Public Housing Authority’s federally-assisted public housing program requires that the applicant shall not have been evicted since March 1, 1985, from a public housing program administered by the HPHA, or any of its predecessors, the Housing and Community Development Corporation of Hawaii, or the Hawaii Housing Authority.
This requirement currently applies to all cases of evictions, regardless of the reason for the eviction. The HPHA seeks to amend the prohibition to remove its application against families who were evicted solely due to failure to pay rent, and do not owe any current outstanding debt to the HPHA or any U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) rental assistance program. By providing these individual families with a fresh start, it will assist in alleviating the State’s homelessness crisis.

Public Review: The proposed changes are available for public viewing at the HPHA and site management offices at the following locations between 7:45 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.:

Hawaii Public Housing Authority       Lanakila Homes

  5) Require a social security number or certification of not having one, evidence of citizenship or eligible immigrant status for each household member for application, verification, eligibility in various sections in order to properly and consistently document program applicant eligibility;
  6) Include a waiting list for applicants by adding a new subsection in old Section 15-184-11, to read as new Section 17-2033-11(b), and creating a new Section 17-2033-22;

  9) Clarifying that an applicant must have their primary place of residence in Hawaii and not merely an intent to make Hawaii their residence, under old Section 15-184-13(9) to read as new Section 17-2033-13(9);
  10) Requiring for purposes of eligibility that an applicant not engage in or threaten abusive or violent behavior or cause any harm to damage to the HPHA, by adding new subsections to old Section 15-184-13, to read as new Section 17-2033-13(16) and (17);
  11) Moving old Sections 15-184-14 through 15-184-17, HAR, with minor changes to new Subchapter 3 of Chapter 17-2033, HAR;

The STATE OF HAWAII PUBLIC UTILITIES COMMISSION ("Commission"), pursuant to
Hawaii Revised Statutes §§ 269-12 and 269-16, HEREBY GIVES NOTICE that it will hold a
public hearing relating to the Application of LAIE WATER COMPANY, INC. ("LWC"), filed on

The public hearing will be held as follows:
Monday, November 7, 2016, at 6:00 p.m.

Laie, Oahu
LWC is a public utility that provides water utility services, including the gathering, storage,
transmission, distribution, and other provision of water, within its authorized service area in
Laie, on the island of Oahu.
LWC seeks the Commission’s approval for a January 1, 2017 through December 31, 2017
test year net revenue increase of $901,953 for its water operations, which amounts to an
approximate increase of 79% over the pro forma revenue amount of $1,145,913 at present
rates for the 2017 test year. LWC states that the proposed revenue increase would provide
LWC with an opportunity to earn an 8.27% rate of return on its prudently incurred costs for
utility assets and its prudently incurred expenses.
LWC seeks a rate increase to the fixed monthly charges and usage charges for its
current residential and non-residential customer categories. LWC’s proposed rates combine
the current residential and non-residential customer categories into a single residential and
non-residential customer category. LWC’s application states that it seeks to put the proposed
water rates into effect upon the date of authorization by the Commission.
LWC’s present and proposed charges are as follows:
Present Rate s
Residential Service
Monthly Charge Per Customer
Usage Charge – 13,000 or less gallons per month
Usage Charge – Over 13,000 under 30,001

LWC additionally requests that the Commission: (1) approve LWC’s proposed revisions to its
Tariff No. 1 ("Tariff") by incorporating a new Section 7.2 of its Rules and Regulations relating to the
requirements for contribution-in-aid-of-construction ("CIAC") (the proposed new Section 7.2 replaces
the current Section 7.2, regarding the Water System Facilities Charge, and includes information
about when, as a condition of receiving service to a New Customer Facility or a Substantially
Modified Customer Facility, a customer or developer may be required to pay a nonrefundable CIAC);
(2) amend certain additional Rules and Regulations in its Tariff, including, without limitation, updating
the tap-in/connection charge from $3,100 to $4,200 for any new or replacement connection;
and (3) grant such other and further relief, including any interim rate increase, as may be just,
reasonable, and equitable. LWC is not seeking to modify the flat monthly rate or tap-in/connection
charge for its flat monthly rate customer.
The Commission will investigate whether the proposals in the Application, including revisions to
its rate schedules, are just and reasonable. The total revenue requirement for the 2017 calendar
test year will not exceed the $901,953 amount over revenues at present rates that LWC requests.
However, the increase in rates and charges to be finally approved by the Commission, if any, may
be higher or lower than LWC’s proposed rates and charges noted herein.
Copies of LWC’s Application are available for public review through (1) the Commission’s
electronic Document Management System, accessible at http://dms.puc.hawaii.gov/dms/, Docket
Quick Link 2016-0229, or (2) at Laie Water Company, Inc. (55-510 Kamehameha Highway, Laie,

the Commission’s Honolulu Office [(808) 586-2020], or the Division of Consumer Advocacy [(808)

Application. Statements may also be mailed to the Public Utilities Commission, 465 South King
Street, Room No. 103, Honolulu, Hawaii 96813, or e-mailed to .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address). All written

Commission’s Honolulu Office by November 17, 2016.

LEGAL NOTICE
Notice of Proposed Rulemaking
Public Hearing

Notice is hereby given of proposed rulemaking and public hearing by the Department of Labor and Industrial Relations (DLIR), Hawaii Occupational Safety and Health Division (HIOSH), to Part 11 of Title 12, Subtitle 8, Hawaii Administrative Rules (HAR), pursuant to the Boiler and Elevator Safety Law,  Section 397-4, Hawaii Revised Statutes (HRS), and the Hawaii Administrative Procedure Act, Chapter 91, HRS.
The public hearing will consider the amendments and compilation of     chapters 12-229 and 12-230.1 in Title 12, Subtitle 8, Part 11 of the HAR. The proposed amendments and compiling of chapter 12-229, "General, Administrative and Legal Provisions" include the following:
1.  Amendments to section 12-229-2 "Definitions.":
  a.  Specifies that "HAW" is the registration number assigned to elevators   and related systems by the Authority Having Jurisdiction (Director) to   avoid mixed terminology in the rules.
  b.  Meet the statutory requirement that a "qualified elevator inspector"  meets the criteria of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers and   the standards for the qualification of elevator inspectors of the American   National Standards Institute.
2. Amendments to section 12-229-4.1 "Installation and alteration permits"  include the following:
  a. Clarifying that installation or alteration permits are required for   amusement rides.
  b.  Makes it clear that an owner is responsible for contracting work with a   licensed elevator contractor to ensure only elevator contractors perform   installations and alterations.
  c.  Changing installation, alteration and inspection fees for some   equipment per the schedules in Exhibit A, titled, "Elevator and Kindred   Equipment Installation and Alteration Fees," and Exhibit B, titled,  "Elevator and Kindred Equipment Inspection Fees," to help ensure the   Branch remains self-sufficient. Both exhibits have an effective date of   January 1, 2017.
  d.  Provides electronic means to request installation or alteration refunds   for the convenience of customers.
  e.  Requires painting or permanently attaching the HAW registration   number to the car top crosshead instead of the driving mechanism in   addition to painting or permanently attaching to the controller.
3. Amendments to section 12-229-5.1 "Permits to operate" include the   following:
  a. Conforms inspection and test intervals to the national consensus   standards via Exhibit C, titled, "Inspections and Test Intervals (In   Months)" with an effective date of January 1, 2017.
  b.  Requires the owner or the owner’s duly appointed agent to arrange for   inspection of closed buildings or not readily accessible elevators and   related systems.
  c.  Changes the requirement to post the operating permit in or on elevators   and related systems from all equipment to a copy of the permit for just   new or altered equipment after the effective date of the rules to reduce   the economic impact of retrofitting all elevators to accommodate the   posting requirement.
4.  Amendments to section 12-229-6.1 "Fees" include the following:
  a.  Changing installation, alteration and inspection fees for some   equipment per the schedules in Exhibit A, titled, "Elevator and Kindred   Equipment Installation and Alteration Fees," and Exhibit B, titled,  "Elevator and Kindred Equipment Inspection Fees." Both exhibits have   an effective date of January 1, 2017.
  b.  Specifies that an "unscheduled" inspection is actually a "special or   dedicated" inspection to accurately reflect the current practice.
  c.  Institutes a fee for building plan reviews—these reviews require   significant staff time to review and currently the task is non-revenue   generating at a time when construction and the installation of new   elevators is booming.
  d.  Amends the fee for inspection of amusement rides from $100 to $200,  which is a more accurate reflection of the time it takes an inspector to   inspect the equipment.
5. Amendments to section 12-229-7.1 "Inspection and tests" include the   following:
  Modifies Exhibit C, titled, "Inspection and Test Intervals (In Months),"  dated January 1, 2017, by changing the inspection intervals to conform   to the national consensus standards:
  i.  Personnel hoists—from six months to three months.
  ii.  Escalators and moving walks, dumbwaiters, material lifts and   platform lifts and stairway chairlifts—from six months to           twelve months.
6.  Amendment to section 12-229-10.1 "Reporting of accidents" includes the   following:
  Reduces the reporting requirement from any damage to equipment to   "significant" damage to eliminate the need to report minor accidents in   which there is little damage and no person is hurt.
7.  Amendment to section 12-229-15.1 "Notifications of transfer and location"  includes the following housekeeping amendment:
  Strikes "registration number (HAW number)" to "HAW number" due to the   insertion of HAW number in the definition section.
8.  Amendment to section 12-229-16.1 "Variances" includes the following:  Permits the director to post notice of a variance on the department’s   website in lieu of publication in a paper of general circulation.
The proposed amendments and compiling of chapter 12-230.1, "Elevators, Escalators, Dumbwaiters, Moving Walks, and Material Lifts and Dumbwaiters with Automatic Transfer Devices" include the following:
1.  Amendments and compiling of section 12-230-1-4 "Requirements for   existing elevators, escalators, dumbwaiters, moving walks, and material lifts   and dumbwaiters with automatic transfer devices" include the following:
  a.  Clarifies that for existing elevators installed or altered before 1998 that   the code adopted by the HAR at the time of installation or alteration is   the applicable code. This eliminates the potential confusion as to which   code pertains to a particular device and is illustrated in a new Exhibit A,  titled, "Existing Elevator and Kindred Equipment Code Application   Dates," dated January 1, 2017.
  b.  Clarifies that fire recall devices and related services and any requirement   for upgrades to the existing fire recall system would not be retroactive   for existing elevators, which significantly reduces the economic impact of   owners by not having to retrofit existing equipment to more current   standards.
  c.  Removes the requirement for all existing equipment to have a written   Maintenance Control Program (MCP) because the MCP requires a   complete history of maintenance amongst other features. Almost all   existing elevators have incomplete maintenance records because the   MCP had not been required before the last change in the code (June 30,  2014). This also significantly reduces the economic impact for owners   who would need to investigate and determine when maintenance   occurred on equipment regardless of when it was installed or altered.
The proposed rules apply to any entity, including small businesses, which own or are responsible for elevators or related systems and amusement rides. The initial impact of the proposed rules will be to elevator contractors, construction contractors of buildings using elevators and related systems, and building owners. The proposed rules include increased fees for inspections and safety tests. The increased fees will affect building owners, tenants and all businesses responsible for elevators or related equipment.
DLIR believes the increase in fees are modest and reflect a more accurate cost of the labor, overhead and equipment and supplies required to perform each kind of inspection or safety test. This is of critical importance as the fees charged for the services is the only source of funding (special) for the Branch.
DLIR estimates the costs of operating the Branch by combining the salaries of the inspectors, the salaries of the non-revenue generating staff, and overhead costs like rent charged by the Department of Accounting & General Services as well as supplies and services.
Moreover, the proposal will save those responsible for elevators and related equipment anywhere from thousands of dollars to hundreds of thousands of dollars. The actual cost savings is dependent on the type, age and size of the equipment so the direct and indirect costs must be determined on a case-by-case basis.
The cost-saving provisions include the requirement for existing equipment to have a MCP, posting of permits in existing equipment, increases the threshold for reporting of accidents and required subsequent investigations, clarifies the applicable code to avoid needlessly upgrading equipment, and eliminates the need for much of the existing equipment to have fire recall and related services.
A copy of the proposed rule changes will be made available for public viewing from the first working day that the legal notice appears in the Honolulu         Star-Advertiser, Hawaii Tribune Herald, West Hawaii Today, The Maui News, and The Garden Island, through the day the public hearing is held, from Monday – Friday,  August 15-September 14, 2016, between the hours of 2:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m., at the following locations: 830 Punchbowl Street, Room 423, Honolulu, Hawaii 96813; 75 Aupuni Street, Hilo, Hawaii 96720; 2264 Aupuni Street, Wailuku, Hawaii 96793; and 3060 Eiwa Street, Lihue, Hawaii 96766. A copy of the proposed rules may be obtained for a prepaid fee of ten cents per page plus postage or viewed at our website at http://labor.hawaii.gov/hiosh.
