Maui govt agencies reconsider air travel for work

By Associated Press

WAILUKU, Hawaii (AP) Maui County agencies are reconsidering how much government employees should travel by air for work after recent deadly plane crashes on Lanai and Molokai.

The Maui News reported Monday that Deputy Planning Director Michele McLean says her department plans to revisit logistics and staffing for meetings on Lanai, Molokai and in Hana on the east side of the island.

She says until then, staff can travel by plane or ferry to Lanai and Molokai and by car to Hana. She says they can stay overnight when necessary.

County spokesman Rod Antone says it's up to each department to choose what's best for them when it comes to employee travel. He says it's necessary to use planes and ferries because the county includes three islands.
