Overcoming some “opening night” glitches at the new digs at Kihei Charter School using the just completed (moments before the meeting began) set, President Jon Miller welcomed County Directors Will Spence (Planning) and David Goode (Public Works,) for a lively discussion concerning the recent storm related  damages and challenges, as well as the ongoing questions of lack of long term planning and specifically lack of bicycle and walking facilities in South Maui. To gather community input of concerns, the open mic was then  made available to the audience to question the two new directors. See next week’s Maui Weekly for a professional detailed report on the meeting. The Feb 15 meeting will feature County representatives from the Parks; Recreation and Environmental Management Departments. Please remember donations for our Food Bank.
