Section 14-3 of the Revised Charter of the County of Maui (1983), as amended ("Charter"), requires a Charter Commission to be appointed at times mandated by the Charter to study and review the operation of the government of the County under the Charter. The Charter Commission may propose amendments to the Charter or draft a new Charter.
A Charter Commission was most recently appointed in 2021. This Commission proposed 11 amendments. In accordance with State law, the Maui County Council also put forth alternative proposed amendments to two of the Charter Commission's proposals.
The Council passed two resolutions proposing Charter amendments. Each resolution contains the proposed amendment as well as the question that will be on the 2022 County of Maui General Election ballot for the proposed amendment.
