Applications being accepted for county boards and commissions
WAILUKU – Applications are now being accepted for county boards, councils, commissions and committees due to term expirations and vacancies. The deadline for applications is Dec. 31, 2016. Applications are also accepted year-round to fill vacancies due to resignations.
Responsibilities include hearing public testimony, reviewing policies and standards, and making recommendations. Positions are appointed by the mayor and confirmed by the County Council, and have terms lasting two to five years.
While no monetary compensation is provided for serving on a board or commission, the public’s participation helps provide an important government service.
Anyone interested in serving on a board or commission may apply online at www.mauicounty.gov/Boards. Paper applications are also available at the County Building in the Mayor’s Office on the ninth floor and in the Information Booth in the main lobby; at all public libraries; at Council Services offices on Molokai and Lanai and in Hana; and at all Parks and Recreation Permit offices (Wailuku, Makawao, Lahaina, Kihei, Hana, Molokai and Lanai).
