Carroll talks about lack of government transparency in Hawaii and how hard it is to get information.
To illustrate, Carroll reports on a serious problem developing in Palolo. Houses built on the side of a hill are starting to slide down. Foundations are cracking, streets are buckling, and water is leaking, but the Board of Water Supply cannot find the source. Sensors are monitoring the area to track the slide.

Carroll also talks more about Performance Systems, Inc. (PSI), the company that defaulted on a number of other city projects (as reported by Carroll last week) may have been involved in a project to fix this area. The city is not answering any of Carroll's questions about city projects and contracts with PSI.
How did PSI get so many contracts, and what is happening now, after they defaulted on the projects? What about all the water main breaks, sewage spills, and other infrastructure problems in the city? The bigger question is, how can the city operate so loosely with taxpayer money?
And one more project, a bridge that is falling apart. PSI also defaulted on the project to fix this bridge. Link here to our bridge story on HawaiiNewsNows.
Here are pictures of houses in Palolo are slipping down the hill:
And, here is one more project PSI defaulted on:
