The first meeting of the Alliance of Maui Community Associations (Alliance) for 2015 occurred last Monday (1/26/15) at the Kaunoa Senior Center “behind” the Kahului Airport. Beginning at 6:00, the meeting included representatives of eight Organizations. .Kihei had two directors present, Adele Rugg and Mike Moran

The meeting commenced with a brief 15 minute appeal from MECO Community Relation Director Mahina Martin advising MECO had a lot of information to impart to the communities, and suggested Associations contact her to arrange presentations to any of the groups.

Next returning KCA (makai) President Mike Moran offer a 10 minute explanation of the County’s Environmental Management plan to cease the “3 can plan”: curbside recycling pilot project in 2 Kihei neighborhoods, in spite of residents strong objects. Moran distributed copies of a letter KCA had sent to County Director Kyle Ginoza (see below) and suggested other Associations representatives request their boards to create similar letters and submit them to the same entities.

Next  was a rereading to the group of the established mission statement & guiding principals to determine if any modification is necessary..

At the halfway point Council Chair Mike White arrived, fresh off the plane from Honolulu to address the group on some issues he felt were most important in his new position of leadership of the Council, and to listen to & comment on a list of suggested ways to improve Council meetings. The list had been compiled based on a meeting late in 2014 when the prior Chair Gladys Baisa participated .

The next Alliance meeting is set for 2/23/15 at 6:00 PM..IMG_0027 IMG_0032 IMG_0036 IMG_0035 IMG_0033IMG_0032 IMG_0029 IMG_0034
