Our County Government at Work - The Hilo Way

From today's West Hawaii Today.
First, you sell a bulldozer worth $125,000 for $60,000. The taxpayers are out $65,000.

Then, you lease it back for "at least" 5 years at $14,725 a month, so the taxpayers are out another $883,500.

That's $948,500, so far.

But wait, there's more! The county also has to pay maintenance, so the total may be up to a cool million.

The only question: Who is C & H Ishii General Contractors' connection with county government?

This is another example of the good ole boys crime syndicate on the Big Island and other islands.
