Council revives move to vote on transit
Advertiser StaffThe City Council is again considering a final transit vote today.
The council voted at 3:30 p.m. to reconsider action taken earlier today to postpone a decision until next week.
City Councilwoman Barbara Marshall moved to take back the earlier deferral after hearing testimony from many of the 130 individuals signed up to address the issue.
A new proposal from Councilwoman Ann Kobayashi had threatened to postpone the historic vote on the $4.6 billion project.
Kobayashi said she would withdraw that proposal after hearing from many who said they favored the "green line" through Kalaeloa rather than a modified route she was proposing that ran partway on the yellow line along Farrington Highway and part on the green line.
