Meetings will be held next month in all Maui County community plan areas on the proposed fiscal year 2020 budget, Councilmember Keani Rawlins-Fernandez, chair of the council’s Economic Development and Budget Committee, announced today.

The district meeting schedule, tentative until agendas are posted, is as follows:

All district meetings will start at 6 p.m.

“I look forward to the committee visiting all areas of our county to receive community input where our constituents live,” Rawlins-Fernandez said. “We need the public’s assistance in crafting a budget to ensure ‘Maui County’s economy will be diverse, sustainable and supportive of community values,’ as stated in the Countywide Policy Plan.”

The proposed fiscal year 2020 budget is the county’s financial plan for the 12-month period that begins July 1, 2019. The mayor is required to transmit the proposed budget to the council by March 25. Meeting agendas will be posted soon after.

“The committee will deliberate on the budget on most weekdays during April in the Council Chamber,” Rawlins-Fernandez said. Separate meeting agendas will be published.
