(BIVN) – Hawai’i County Council Governmental Relations and Economic Development Committee on Monday got an update on a proposed Independent Whistle Blower Program that will allow both government employees and the public to share concerns without fear of retaliation.
Two weeks ago, the Hawaiʻi County Council voted to fund the program, using $25,000 from the previous year’s fund balance.
Puna Councilmember Ashley Kierkiewicz told her fellow councilmembers that she has been working with William Brilhante, the director of the Department of Human Resources, to stand up the program. She detailed the progress that has been made during the committee meeting.
