Maui Mayor Arakawa hosts community meetings on county budget

KAHULUI, MAUI (HawaiiNewsNow) - Maui Mayor Alan Arakawa will host a series of communities meetings this month to get feedback about the county budget.

The purpose of the meetings is to hear from the public about the proposed budget for fiscal year 2018 to 2019. Both written and verbal comments will be accepted.

"This is a valuable opportunity for our citizens to have a say in how their taxpayer dollars are spent by the county," Arakawa said, in a statement.

Arakawa said many of the projects and new services his administration has implemented over the years were helped in large part by these community meetings.
