WAILUKU, Hawaiʻi (Nov. 7, 2023)—The Maui County Council will hold a special council meeting Thursday at 9 a.m. to consider Bill 114 (2023), funding the new Office of Recovery and adding new conditional language for a Lahaina Wildfire Final Disposition site in Olowalu, Council Chair Alice L. Lee announced today.
Lee said the council will also meet on Nov. 20 at 9 a.m. to consider a bill to add Kamehameha Iki Park to the list of historic and cultural sites eligible for preservation and restoration under the Hawaiian Cultural Restoration Revolving Fund. The Nov. 20 council meeting agenda will also include a proposal to allow composting in the agricultural zoning district.
