County’s leaders set to speak at Kula event

Mayor Alan Arakawa and three council members, including new Council Chairwoman Gladys Baisa, will make presentations at Tuesday’s meeting of the Kula Community Association.

Council Members Stacy Crivello, chairwoman of the Housing, Human Services & Transportation Committee; and Don Guzman, chairman of the Economic Development, Energy, Agriculture & Recreation Committee, also will appear at the event at the Kula Community Center.

The Kula Community Association’s first community meeting of the year will give Upcountry residents an opportunity to hear from and speak with their elected county leaders.

The speakers will discuss issues of specific interest to Upcountry residents, including water availability and source development, the Maui Bus route through Kula, water meters and rates, road repairs, and Upcountry infrastructure proposals in the county budget.

The four presentations will be followed by a question-and-answer period and then an opportunity for more personal discussions as the four county officials sit down and talk with residents, the news release about the meeting said.

The meeting will begin at 7 p.m.

Members of the Upcountry community are welcome to attend. Refreshments will be served.
