Tall grass greets drivers along Ala Moana Blvd.

News

The grass is getting high in the median along Ala Moana Boulevard.

Several viewers mentioned it to us via Report It.

The city tells us maintenance crews plan to go out this weekend, weather permitting.

The issue isn’t just in Ala Moana.

Honolulu Mayor Kirk Caldwell explained last week that near-record-low unemployment has made hiring and keeping qualified workers a challenge.

“If they can get an entry job in the union that pays better, they’ll leave, and so challenge is making sure our grass is cut. You see grass tall in certain median strips. It drives me crazy,” he said.

The mayor also said the city needs to do a better job by paying more and touting its generous benefits.
