Mayor Victorino issues statement on Oct. 16 March & Rally

The County of Maui has received health and safety concerns from the public about proposed plans for a march and rally this weekend.

“We respect everyone’s First Amendment right to protest and peacefully assemble,” Mayor Michael Victorino said Monday. “However, event planners have recently requested that the event include food, live music and tents on County property.  In the midst of a global pandemic, such activities risk creating conditions that could harm our community and negatively impact our limited healthcare resources without the proper health and safety protocols in place.”

According to County administrative rules governing the use of public property, a permit application for such an event needs to be received at least 30 days before the event for appropriate planning and review. The application to use County property for a march and rally was received on Friday, Oct. 8. 

“Due to such late notice and lack of sufficient health and safety protocols in place, the County will not be able to issue a special event permit. The First Amendment march may proceed, and our community asks participants for adherence to all health and safety protocols to limit the spread of COVID-19.”
