The Dillingham Fountain was built in the late sixties at a cost of around $60,000. The money came from private donations to honor Louise Dillingham, a long time member of the old city Parks Board. Thirty years later, with the fountain works often on the blink, Jeremy approved a $400,000 restoration contract. That's six times more than it cost to build the whole fountain in the first place. But this was only the beginning. With the city construction budget doubled, Jeremy was ready to build his empire. Honolulu Weekly 3-5-1997
