Applications are now being accepted for Maui County’s Boards, Councils, Commissions and Committees due to expired terms and vacancies.

Work is voluntary and there is no monetary compensation; however, administrators say participation helps provide an important government service.

Responsibilities include hearing public testimony, reviewing policies and making recommendations.

Positions are appointed by the mayor and are subject to council approval for terms lasting between two and five years.


The deadline to apply is Dec. 31, 2016, but applications are also accepted year-round to fill vacancies due to resignations.

Paper applications should be mailed to: Mayor Alan Arakawa, County of Maui, 200 South High Street, Ninth Floor, Wailuku, HI 96793, or faxed to (808) 270-7870.
