With 11 members presenting, the Senate established quorum to approve motions. President Kaleo Gagne gave a report that the student body had safe surplus fund for this year. This fund will be roll over to next administration and can be used next semester. But the executive board decided to use a part of the fund to install water machines in Building 2.
ASUH Head Advisor Emily Kukulies said that both UH Manoa and Leeward CC had installed water stations in their campus. The money will go to installing of the machine and buying water. It will be free for students.
“This is a part of the process for sustainability on saving water bottles,” Gagne said. He said the water stations will help people to reuse their water bottle, and water quality from the machine is very good.
Since UH Manoa and LCC had applied and installed this machine, HonCC will use the same water machine provider. The senate voted and approved the project after discussion.
