This blog is about a barking dog ordinance on Kaua'i that has been in effect since February 2014. This is an interesting subject matter even if you don't live on Kaua'i.
What's worse than appealing the barking dog ordinance?
A barking county council.
The county council only voted on this bill in February of 2014 and it has only been in effect for about 18 months. There was over- whelming testimony that many neighborhoods are quieter with just the threat of a law, therefore it's working.
The division amongst council members is apparent . I watched on Government access TV the entire meeting on appealing the law and have come to the conclusion this is not about barking dogs, it's about division and lack of aloha between our own elected officials.
I know many of the council members and on a personal basis like them all, however when ego gets in the way and our representatives no longer respect the majority view of the people it is time to make changes come elections in 2016.
The icing on the cake there is actually a motion to abolish term limits, can you just imagine having to live with this same rhetoric forever?
There is still time for this bill to stay in place. The Mayor can veto it! Please write, call or email Mayor Carvalho to veto bill #2590 AKA "The barking dog ordinance." The Mayor's email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
