Our Maui County departments operate to serve resident and community needs. Heading some of those departments are four newly appointed directors. The community meeting will have these directors clarify their plans and respond to questions from our upcountry residents. This will be an opportunity to express your concerns and hear those of your neighbors.
Director Kaʻala Buenconsejo, (Dept. of Parks and Recreation)
Director Don Medeiros, (Dept. of Transportation)
Director Carol Reimann, (Dept. of Housing and Human Concerns)
Director Stewart Stant, (Dept. of Environmental Management)
Agricultural Land Property Tax:
Also on the agenda will be a presentation from the Agriculture Working Group on the related issues and impact of proposed changes in the County’s property taxation of agricultural lands. The bill, BF-70, would eliminate our current “agriculture-use value” assessment, changing all agricultural lands to a “market value” assessment. The bill is expected to be on the agenda of the Budget and Finance Committee on Monday, Feb. 29th, at 1:30.
