Aug. 4 Town Meeting Focuses On County Boards & Commissions

5:15-7 p.m., Thurs., Aug. 4, 2016.  Waimea School Cafeteria. 

Boards and Commissions provide critical community advice, transparency and accountability for County departments, agencies and services so several current board and commission members representing Waimea/South Kohala will share their thoughts and experiences.

Also, Char Shigemura, who is Mayor Billy Kenoi’s Executive Assistant, will provide an overview of the responsibilities of various boards and commissions to enhance community understanding of how residents can participate in County government and ensure that our community remains the special place it already is.

Also, Waimea historian-author Dr. Billy Bergin will preview his next book about the cultural heritage of this ranching community.  All welcome.

New this month is a shift in the association’s monthly giving focus to now support a variety of not-for-profit community service organizations.  The August recipient of support will be the Big Island Giving Tree, which is currently working to provide back-to-school supplies for children.  Tax deductible donations welcome.

MEETING RECAP:  Thoughtful voices of the community were shared at our Aug. 4, 2016 WCA Town Meeting – mahalo to all who shared their experiences serving on important County Boards and Commissions! Mahalo, too, to Mayor Kenoi and his cabinet members for coming to support community volunteers whose service on commissions ensures that our grassroots voices, needs and concerns are heard and addressed…and that county agencies and programs are responsive, transparent and accountable!
