Do you want to pay higher taxes or receive less services? Or maybe charge corporations for naming rights to county park facilities as in the NFL?

3/16/17 #kihei In the past few County Council Budget and Finance Committee meetings, there has been discussion (BF-129) about Concessions and Sponsorships in County Parks & Recreation Facilities. So this is not a specific South Maui concern, but county-wide, but of course the outcome affects all of our parks. As the intent is to establish policy, your opinion matters.

A random example: this morning the Maui News front page addressed the long-awaited gym to be constructed in our community park, which the P & R Director now estimates at $20M. If an international corporation offers to donate a sizable amount toward this cost, if the facility is named for their business, are you in favor? Does it depend on the type of business? Is that too much a mainland concept, not Maui style? How about granting concessions at the parks to generate funding?

However you see these matters you should let the Council know as policy is being developed, not after it is established and settled. Get involved.

  1. Tax corporations for the privilege of doing business here. They serve us or they can stay the heck out! Stop taxing people who don’t have the money. Tax the corporations, the ones with the money, and make them accountable for there actions. Do not sell Maui to corporations or developers for off-island profits.
    Thank you for your very kind attention.
