The Hawaii County Council approved a resolution Friday seeking an audit of Hele-On’s cash-handling procedures.

The audit would occur after a permanent administrator is found for the beleaguered Mass Transit Agency.

Mayor Harry Kim hired an interim administrator May 1 on an 89-day contract to get the bus system, suffering from failing vehicles and other operational problems, back on track. Interim director Curtis Sharp, a retired Marine, said the county will get seven buses donated from Honolulu on Tuesday.

He said the new $12 million baseyard, which is behind schedule but could open in August, will be somewhat of a game-changer, providing the mechanics a proper workplace.

On Friday, the council also approved a bill authorizing $20 million in bonds for the closure of the Hilo landfill.
