I have put a lot of thought and consideration into my proposal.
Property valuations have increased, resulting in over $20 million dollars revenue at current tax rates. The Mayor’s proposal increases current tax rates by 6.5 percent and adds another $15 million to his budget.
In addition to eliminating the mayor’s 6.5 percent increase, I have also chosen to reduce the taxpayer’s rate and make cuts to the general fund by over $18 million. I have also reduced Capital Improvement Projects by $9 million.
I feel that it is my obligation to the taxpayers of Maui County to be fiscally responsible.
I would like to thank the committee and staff for their guidance and hard work.
I appreciate your consideration.
