Hotel-To-Condo Measure Deferred

(Honolulu, HI) -- Hotel owners in Honolulu will not be able to convert their property into condominiums anytime soon. The Honolulu City Council committee voted to defer a measure that would allow hotel property owners to convert rooms into condos by obtaining a permit. The initial reading of the measure passed earlier this month. Officials say they want more information on the issue before moving the bill.
