This edition of Big Island Live will be hosted by Kristine Kubat. Pete Hoffmann will be first up at 5:30, and he will be talking about the proposed restructuring of the County Council. Joining him will be former council chairman, Angel Pilago. There is a public hearing coming up on September 14th about the restructuring. Callers should limit their questions to this subject.

  1. I too enjoyed it.

    There were a few expected first time things that need to be worked out… but I think it was excellent for a first run around.

    I’ll be writing up my comments and emailing them to the producer of the show(s).

    I will say that I missed being able to comment with other viewers while the stream was going on.

  2. The town hall turned out really good. The video feed was solid on my 11Mbps DSL and it was very informative.

Feel like saying something about this?
