Dear Sir, Did the COH NOT spend this loan on "construction" in 2007 -2009? There is no "construction" that I can see and these may be "leftover SRF" funds that seem to be floating around the COH financial reports. COH shows "Naalehu SRF" obligations of $6.6 m. as Items in financial report Com 0009.012 2018-2020 page 110. There is just so much "funny" SRF money showing up on COH financials that I am asking the Court to order State/County legislative audits to see why your funds weren't used for construction as promised and why DOH-WWB allowed them to fool around with CWSRF loans since 2007 with no accountability. Thanks, again. ... Sincerely yours Sandra Demoruelle
