Schedule of FY20 Community Budget Meetings Announced

News Release from Maui County, August 15, 2018

WAILUKU, MAUI – Mayor Alan Arakawa and his administration will host a series of community meetings in September and October to receive comments and suggestions from the public regarding the proposed budget for the Fiscal Year 2019-2020.

Citizens with an interest in the County budget are encouraged to attend a meeting in their local area and offer input, either as individuals or on behalf of an organization. Both written and verbal comments will be accepted.

Tables will be set up to allow directors and staff from each County department to meet with members of the public, hear budget-related needs, listen to concerns and answer questions about various County-related issues. Attendees will be given a form upon arrival at the meeting to determine their needs and to which department(s) their comments pertain.

The meeting in each community will begin with an overview by Mayor Alan Arakawa and Budget Director Sandy Baz, followed by approximately one hour for attendees to submit comments at the various department tables.

“This is a valuable opportunity for our citizens to have a say in how their taxpayer dollars are spent by the County,” said Arakawa. “Many of the projects and new services that my administration has implemented over the years were a direct result of the input from these community meetings. Suggestions from the public help us prioritize what is best for our community, and understand how to better serve our residents. Putting together the Maui County budget is a process in which everyone can take part.”
