Applicants Sought for Maui County Boards, Commissions
Applicants are being sought to serve on Maui County Cost of Government Commission.
County officials say the commission helps promote efficient government operations and improved customer service by reviewing existing county operations and policies and making recommendations to improve them.
Applications also are being accepted for other positions on boards and commissions. Submissions are kept on file for at least two years, and applicants are then considered for nomination when there are openings for positions well suited for their experience and interests. Openings occur when there are vacancies, and expiration of terms, and resignations on boards, commissions and committees.
Responsibilities include hearing public testimony, reviewing policies and standards and making recommendations. Positions are appointed by the Mayor, confirmed by the Maui County Council and have terms lasting two to five years. While no monetary compensation is provided for serving on a board or commission, county officials say the public’s participation helps provide an important government service. Volunteers are reimbursed for allowable travel expenses.
Anyone interested in serving on a board or commission should first apply online at www.mauicounty.gov/Boards.
