County seeks to begin foreclosure for Hawaii land

By Associated Press

KAILUA-KONA, Hawaii (AP) Officials want a federal bankruptcy judge to allow foreclosure proceedings to begin on 80 acres of oceanfront land on Hawaii's Big Island.

Hawaii County Mayor Billy Kenoi says the decision to begin the process gives the county more options as it prepares to build the long-awaited Mamalahoa bypass road in South Kona.

West Hawaii Today says Hawaii County Corporation Counsel will represent the county's interest in a May hearing to confirm a bankruptcy plan by the debtor, 1250 Oceanside Partners.

Oceanside was part of a failed Hokulia luxury development that also included the bypass road.

In a 2012 settlement, Oceanside was ordered to pay the county $12.5 million and either build the road or pay $20 million to the county.

Sunday was the deadline for Oceanside to pay.
