Elevator applications on Web
Applications for the installation of new elevators are now available online, the state Department of Labor & Industrial Relations said.
The online form provides contractors a simple, one-stop application to submit and pay for installations of elevators and kindred equipment and personnel hoists at construction sites.
To submit an application, go to hiosh.ehawaii.gov/hip. Applicants will use a digital form to enter information and to attach installation plans. Users will need to attach a PDF of plans and make payments by credit card or monthly billing.
A help desk chat support option will be available to assist users.
After completing the application, the submitter will receive an email containing a copy of the application and a payment receipt.
For more information or questions about the new service, call (808) 586-9141 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Violation absolved in sign case
A man who was cited when he held a sign warning of police traffic enforcement on South Kihei Road had the violation dismissed in court Thursday.
The citation for violating Maui County's sign ordinance was dismissed with prejudice, meaning it cannot be brought again, in the "interest of justice," according to a judgment in the case.
Kihei resident Kevin Olson said he was standing near Azeka Makai shopping center when he was cited June 18 while holding a sign saying an "MPD spotter van" was parked nearby and to "Be Smart."
Olson said he was careful to stay 6 feet from the pavement but was ticketed for being too close to a crosswalk.
