The bill was introduced by West Maui Councilmember Jo Anne Johnson and gained unanimous approval on first reading.

The county already has alcohol bans in place at Kamehameha Iki Park and Malu’ulu’olele Park in Lahaina, and Keopuolani Park in Kahului.

Under the alcohol prohibitions for Kamehameha Iki Park, Malu’ulu’olele Park, and Keopuolani Park, it is unlawful for any person to consume alcohol on the premises unless otherwise authorized by permit, license, lease or concession by the County of Maui.

The Honokowai proposal comes up for second and final reading on July 7th.
