HONOLULU (AP) — The Honolulu Ethics Commission is recommending a city employee be suspended up to three days for operating a side business expediting building permits.

The commission said Friday the employee processed building permit applications despite a rule barring city employees from representing other private interests before any city agency.

Commission officials declined to identify the employee or give the department when asked by the Associated Press, citing state information laws.

Ethics officials said the recommendation came after three separate incidents from 2012-14.

The commission said the employee didn’t dispute the findings or request a hearing to discuss the issue.
