Why Is the County Wasting More Money on Vehicle Registration Offices?

From the Hawaii Tribune:

…Hawaii County would open a Waimea vehicle registration and driver’s licensing office and double the size of its prosecutors office there under a proposal from Mayor Billy Kenoi’s administration.…”

Why open an office and have staff work at an office that could be done online for much less cost?

Vehicle registration is done online across America. Yet we need to spend more money getting space and man power to man an office that will only be available 32 hours a week some weeks (furloughs)?

I thought the idea was to start getting people off the roads and quit wasting gas? Why wait in line somewhere when it can be done online?

I’m tired of the same old excuse… “Not everyone has internet”.

  1. Looks like someone in the county is reading my blog as they implemented online registration today.

  2. Why not? Because it makes too much sense.

  3. I haven’t asked the question to any public official at this point.

    However, this is a common response I receive when asked about online services for many things that aren’t available online yet.

  4. Is that really the official reason? If so, it’s infuriating — a public computer at the Thelma Parker Library would cost, what?, a day’s pay of a single employee?
