Description

The Committee is in receipt of the following:

1.                     Resolution 22-119, entitled “PROPOSING AN AMENDMENT TO THE REVISED CHARTER OF THE COUNTY OF MAUI (1983), AS AMENDED, TO ESTABLISH THE EAST MAUI COMMUNITY WATER AUTHORITY.”  The purpose of Resolution 22-119 is to place on the next General Election ballot the question of whether the Revised Charter of the County of Maui (1983), as amended, should be amended, effective January 1, 2023, to establish the East Maui Community Water Authority and Community Board to:  (1) pursue the feasibility of acquiring the long-term water lease agreements for the Nāhiku, Ke‘anae, Honomanū, and Huelo License Areas and entering into an intergovernmental agreement to provide a long-term reliable supply of water for domestic and agricultural needs; and (2) manage water resources in a competent, fiscally responsible, and transparent manner as mandated by the State of Hawai‘i Constitution and public trust doctrine.

2.                     Correspondence dated May 31, 2022, from Councilmember Shane M. Sinenci, transmitting a proposed amendment.  The purpose of the proposed amendment is to amend Resolution 22-119 to provide clarity and flexibility, incorporate input from the community and the Department of the Corporation Counsel, and make numbering and nonsubstantive changes throughout.

 

Status
