The Budget, Finance and Economic Development Committee will receive testimony from Upcountry Maui residents on the county’s fiscal year 2024 budget Wednesday, April 12, at 6 p.m. at Mayor Hannibal Tavares Community Center.
“I look forward to hearing from Upcountry residents on their budget priorities,” said Committee Chair Yuki Lei K. Sugimura, who holds the council seat for the Pukalani-Kula-‘Ulupalakua residency area. “Community engagement is a top priority for the council’s budget session, and we want everyone to have a voice in the decision-making process.”
