Mayor Richard T. Bissen, Jr.’s first proposed budget was submitted to the council March 24 and can be reviewed at https://tinyurl.com/mryvpxj7. Kahului and Wailuku-Waiheʻe-Waikapū residents are invited to provide feedback on the budget for Maui County’s fiscal year that begins July 1, said Sugimura, who is leading the budget session as chair of the Budget, Finance and Economic Development Committee.
“The council’s public hearing will serve as a residency-area meeting for both Kahului and Wailuku-Waiheʻe-Waikapū,” Sugimura said. “By Friday night, we will have held evening meetings on the budget for all nine residency areas in Maui County.”
The Council Chamber is on the eighth floor of the Kalana O Maui building at 200 S. High St. Sugimura said she plans for her committee to begin decision making on the budget starting next week, with first reading planning for the May 23 council meeting.
