Charter meeting tonight

Members of the Charter Commission are seeking input from Kaua’i residents on proposed amendments to the County Charter.

The general public is invited to participate in the process by attending community informational meetings. The first meeting is scheduled for this evening at 6:30 at the Kilauea Neighborhood Center in Kilauea.

At tonight’s meeting, there will be a presentation regarding the charter revision process and the proposals under consideration. The public will then have the opportunity to comment.

“This is one of the most valuable moments for public participation in the Charter revision process,” said commission chair Louis Abrams in a press release.

“All of our meetings are open to the public, but these informational meetings are specifically dedicated to reaching out to the community and asking for their input.” Abrams hopes all voters will take a look at the proposed amendments and provide commissioners with feedback on the proposals.

Copies of all proposed amendments are posted on the Charter Commission’s Web site. To access this information, log on to, click on the Charter Commission link, scroll down to the Charter Commission documents section, and click on Proposed Charter Commission Amendment (Table Notice).

Hard copies of the proposals are also available by contacting Edie Ignacio at 241-6646.

Other meetings are scheduled for 6:30 p.m. April 12 at the Hanapepe Neighborhood Center, and 6:30 p.m. April 24 at Kapa’a Middle School cafeteria.
