Mike White The Maui County Council may have ironed out its main leadership issues Monday, but with a public hearing on standing committees still to come, the important work of vetting new bills cannot begin yet.
Council Members Kelly King, Elle Cochran and Alika Atay called for a public hearing on the committees.
The date for the hearing has yet to be determined, but Council Chairman Mike White said during Monday’s meeting that the first available dates were Jan. Until a hearing happens, Bob Carroll Still, members have no shortage of work.
They are still able to draft legislation, meet with community groups and state legislators, and research issues in preparation for committee meetings.
After starting the term with a heated, 13¢-hour meeting, council members said they were hopeful the council would pull together and get to work on the issues. THE PROPOSED COMMITTEES Under the current proposal, the County Council would have four committees with nine members and four committees with seven members.

White explained this was to take a load off of members.
During Monday’s meeting, more members were added to each committee so there are no longer five-member groups.
Cochran said she’s working on items from last term, and Carroll said he’s going through applications related to land use, the committee he chaired last term. They’re where the bills are picked apart and smoothed out before they can head to a final council vote.
