...Public Meeting on PVT's Permit Renewal. PVT -- the construction and demolition landfill directly behind the Coral Sands subdivision in Lualualei -- is up for another five-year permit renewal. They have offered to hold a public meeting in conjunction with the Nanakuli-Maili Neighborhood Board. We don't know when that meeting will be held, but we'll try to find out and let everyone as soon as can. It's not clear what to expect from this meeting, but it is good to know it is happening and be prepared.
