At its Aug. 19 meeting, the Maui Charter Commission is seeking community input and insights regarding proposed Charter amendments that will be considered for placement on the ballot in November 2022.  

This is the latest in a series of public input meetings scheduled over the next several months by the Commission.

The Aug. 19 meeting will be at 9 am, but due to COVID-19 restrictions it will be held online via BlueJeans.

The Commission will receive additional testimony on proposals related to the offices of the County Clerk and County Auditor, and the Cost of County Government (Theme C).  The second topic for discussion will be Budget and Finance (Theme D), followed by Ethics (Theme E) if time permits. 

In addition, Commissioners will consider legal opinions concerning possible conflicts between the Maui Charter and Hawai’i Revised Statutes as they relate to the authority of the Charter Commission.
