The Department of Water Supply would like to warn its customers of unauthorized phone calls for water bill payment.
The DWS has received reports that someone claiming to be a DWS representative is calling customers and offering a discount on their water bill if they pay by credit card.
The DWS utilizes an automated reminder system for late payments; however, employees do not call customers for payment.
The DWS is not yet able to accept credit card payment, and water rates are set annually in the county budget which does not provide for any discounts for water service.
Water bill payment is accepted at the county building lobby, the service center at Maui Mall, and the DWS baseyards in Lahaina, Hana, and Molokai.
The service center accepts checks only. More information is available on the second page of the monthly water bill.
Customers who receive suspicious calls regarding water bill payment should contact the DWS Fiscal/Customer Service Office at 270-7730 and the police.
Sources tell KHON2 that state Department of Health Director Loretta Fuddy died in a plane crash off Molokai.
Loretta Fuddy devoted 30 years to the health and human services industry.
There's a grinch at the Hawaii State Veteran's Cemetery. At least, that's what those who have loved ones buried there are saying. They've been told their holiday decorations at gravesites will have to come down.
