Credit card and transaction fees for online payments for real property taxes, trash pickup and water bills are being waived, and a Molokai and Lanai COVID-19 update will be livestreamed Friday, Maui County said.

The fee waiver went into effect for property taxes and trash pickup on Wednesday; for water bills, the waiver starts Tuesday.

The fee waiver will last until June 30.

The intent of the fee waiver is to reduce in-person payments and public gatherings of people due to the coronavirus.

The updates for Molokai and Lanai residents will be livestreamed on Akaku: Maui Community Media Channel 53 and on the county Facebook page.

Maui County Mayor Michael Victorino will be joined by Dr. Lorrin Pang, Maui District health officer, to talk about the coronavirus and answer questions from the public.

Questions pertaining to Molokai and Lanai residents may be emailed to mayors.office@co.maui.hi.us or asked on Facebook during the livestream.

The livestream is set for 2 p.m. Friday.

The county Department of Parks and Recreation also is asking people with canceled permits for community centers from Monday to April 16 to contact park district offices. Parks staff will offer refunds and check on facility availability on other dates.

The mayor shut down all community centers in an effort to prevent large gatherings in compliance with state and federal advisories. The 30-day closure began Monday.

People with canceled permits may contact district offices at 270-7389, main office in Wailuku; 572-8122, East District office in Makawao; 876-4582, Hana District office; (808) 565-6979, Lanai District office; (808) 553-3204, Molokai District office; 879-4364, South District office in Kihei; and 661-4685, West Maui district office in Lahaina.
