The article reports on the possibility that the Honolulu City Council could approve over 525 million dollars of bonds to fund over 326 million dollars in sewer system improvements as part of the 629 million capital budget for 2006 in Hawaii. According to Ann Kobayashi, chairwoman of the City Council's budget committee, the urgent need for funds was prompted by the move of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to impose a fine when a breached sewer spewed gallons of raw sewage into the ocean.
