Applications have reopened for the director and deputy director of the new Maui County Department of Agriculture after the Salary Commission voted Friday to increase the annual pay for both positions.

The annual salary was increased from $90,000 to $114,000 for the director and from $70,000 to $102,600 for the deputy director.

The new application deadline is May 30.

Individuals who have already applied under the previous recruitment do not need to apply again, the county said in a news release Monday. Applications that have already been sent in will be considered along with any new applications the county receives during the extended recruitment.

Both positions will be appointed by the mayor, and the director will need to be approved by the Maui County Council.
