County Charter archive accessible to the public
The Maui News
LAHAINA - A complete archive of documents related to the Maui County Charter is available to the public.
The nonprofit North Beach West Maui Benefit Fund undertook the project to gather nearly 5,000 pages of documents that were being stored in different locations around the county.
The documents, including minutes, reports and correspondence of charter commissions since 1963, were assembled into the 12-volume "Maui Charter Archive."
Copies of the archive were donated to the 2nd Circuit Court law library, the Lahaina Public Library and the Office of the County Clerk on Maui, and the Hawaii Supreme Court Library and the William S. Richardson School of Law Library in Honolulu.
The documents are also available online at www.mauicharterarchive.org.
Project coordinator Lance Collins said the archive would be a resource for legal researchers, historians and others.
"The wider availability of these important documents will allow the people of Maui to better understand the historical framework of the current charter and help to guide future changes," he said.
