Over 40 individuals offered their opinions to the County Council’s Budget and Finance Committee at the Community Center Monday (4/1/13) evening covering a wide range of topics ranging from numerous non profits requesting support to the SPCA Maui asking to administer the animal neutering program. The Committee, composed of all nine Council members, conducts several regional evening meetings to begin the months-long budget process, and Kihei hosted the first one. If you were unable to testify, you still can do so at any of the other regional meetings, http://www.co.maui.hi.us/CivicAlerts.aspx?AID=4278,  or at any of the countless hearings over next months almost daily at the Council Chambers in Wailuku.
