The County of Hawai‘i Department of Public Works (DPW) Building Division announces that its building permit system will be down for maintenance on Thursday, October 1, 2020, starting at 2 a.m. throughout most the day. As part of the maintenance, the County’s building permit website, Papa Aukahi will be unavailable and permits will not be issued during this time.
While the system is down, the Building Division’s counter services in Hilo and Kona will still be open for application drops off and pickups, general permitting questions, as well as discussion of rejection comments with building reviewers. Please plan accordingly with inspection requests.
Due to Covid-19, DPW has enhanced safety measures in place and members of the public are required to wear a cloth face covering and undergo a temperature screening before proceeding to the counter. Visitors are also encouraged to use the hand sanitizer provided at the counters.
The County of Hawai‘i Department of Public Works apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause and thanks the community for their patience and understanding.
