Civil Cafe: Maui County Charter Amendments
Friday, October 21 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm HST
This November, Maui County voters have a chance to weigh in on 13 proposals that seek to transform how their local government works.
The vast majority of the questions that Maui County voters will see on the Nov. 8 ballot are the culmination of more than a year of work by a group of residents tasked with reviewing the County Charter — the document that serves as the government’s constitution. That process only happens once every 10 years.
Now, it’s up to Maui County voters like you to decide if you want to support the suggested changes. Among the proposals: Whether the county should operate as a bilingual government, create a new housing department and require more government transparency.
Join Civil Beat reporters Marina Riker and Brittany Lyte as they cohost a discussion about the 13 proposed Maui Charter Amendments.
