Bills aim to add new parking rules, standardize hours at county parks

Kelsey Walling/Tribune-Herald People walk up the road at Carlsmith Beach Park in Keaukaha on Thursday. The beach park is open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. each day but the hours are likely to change under a bill working its way through the County Council.

Stricter parking controls and other rules might be coming to Hawaii County beach parks under a series of bills proposed Thursday at a County Council committee hearing.
