UPDATE: 2/1/12Â Â Council passed on second and final reading.
UPDATE:Full County CouncilÂ hearing on this proposed banÂ on 1/20/12Â resulted in unamimous approval. The second and final reading is expected soon.
Maui County Council is deliberatingÂ a complete ban on alcohol consumptionÂ at both Kalama and adjoing Cove Parks.Â KCA has not taken a position on this matter, but is interested in hearing from the membership to form an opinion.Â A unamimousÂ decision was made at the County Council’sÂ committee hearing on 1/5, for a complete ban. Presently, it is illegal to consume alcohol in county park parking lotsÂ and on all beachs.
While this matter has had prior consideration, the issue was raised again as instructors of keikiÂ in various disciplines reported having their classes disruped numerous times by intoxicated individuals and groups. Want to make a comment?
