Kailua Satellite City Hall set to close

KAILUA, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The Kailua Satellite City Hall will close permanently at the end of September this year as a result of the City's projected budget shortfall for this fiscal year.

The satellite city hall is set to close on Monday, September 30.

"After careful study, the closure is fiscally prudent and the Kailua staff will be relocated to other full-service locations to decrease the wait time for the public," said Sheri Kajiwara, director of the Department of Customer Services. The number of transactions at the Kailua office averaged 16 customers per hour, which is low in comparison to other Satellite City Halls.

The nearest Satellite City Hall at Windward City Shopping Center is a full-service office that provides driver license renewal service. Kailua area customers are encouraged to use online services and the mail where possible.
