Maui is exploring the option of building modular homes for families displaced by the August fires. The units would be rent-free for up to two years, affording residents a chance to make permanent arrangements.
These units are much needed, too, because these families have been again displaced, this time from temporary housing that was supposed to have been available to them through the end of October. Instead, they were evicted at the end of September! How heartless can people be!!!
