Mayor Michael Victorino and his administration will host a series of community meetings in October to receive comments and suggestions from the public regarding the proposed budget for the Fiscal Year 2021 - 2022.
“I value the opportunity for our community members to have a say on the taxes and fees that are implemented by the County, and how their taxpayer dollars are spent,” Mayor Victorino said. “These are unprecedented times as we navigate through the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. Suggestions from the public help us prioritize what is best for our community, and understand how to better serve our residents. I welcome everyone to participate in any of the meetings listed below and follow us through the next budget cycle.”
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and for the safety of our residents, all meetings will be conducted online. Representatives from various county departments will be present at each meeting. The public is invited to participate and share concerns and priorities with Mayor Victorino and his cabinet, and ask questions about various County-related issues. Community members are encouraged to attend an online meeting to offer input, either as individuals or on behalf of an organization. Community members may also submit written comments using a Community Budget Request Form available at https://www.mauicounty.gov/139/Budget-Office.
All meetings will begin at 5:30 pm and will be held online via BlueJeans video conferencing:
