S Memo 12-5
September 13, 2011
Determination Whether WasteStream Kohala
Is a Board Subject to the Sunshine Law

Requester sought an opinion as to whether WasteStream Kohala (“WasteStream”) is a board subject to the Sunshine Law.

OIP found that WasteStream Kohala is not a board as defined by the Sunshine Law and therefore is not subject to the requirements of Hawaii’s Sunshine Law because it was not created by Constitution, Statute, rule or executive order; was not delegated any duties by the North Kohala Community Development Plan Action Committee (Action Committee); and none of the members of the Action Committee are a part of WasteStream.
