The Garden Island’s reporters ask the County of Kauai lots of questions. And we do mean, lots. Budgets, taxes, parks, elections, police, accidents, solid waste, recycling and fires are just some of the subjects we often are seeking information about. County protocol requires TGI and other media to send queries to the public information folks. We can’t just call the mayor, the planning director, the police chief, the prosecuting attorney, and get their take on things.
