The County Committee on Public and Intergovernmental Affairs will reconvene on Wednesday, Nov. 4, at 1:30 p.m. in the Council Chamber to further discuss a county manager form of government instead of one run by a mayor.

“We’re at that point where we’ve kind of resolved most of the issues, now we need the names and just a couple of other house keeping (items), and we can bring this forward to the council in its entirety,” said committee chair Michael Victorino during Monday’s committee meeting.

Members on Monday agreed that the special committee shall be composed of 11 voting members who are Maui County residents with membership seats allotted from each of the voting districts and two at large seats.

The special committee would be established from the date of the resolution for 180 days.  The deadline could be extended by the council in the form of a resolution if more time is needed.


Members are expected to present at least two names from their district for consideration as members of the new special committee, and a third name to be considered for at the large seats.

The resolution referred by the council committee was introduced by Council Chair Mike White.
