The question is, “What can I do or say to get your attention and desire to support our Call to Action for the West Maui Taxpayer’s Association Inc.”; (WMTA)?
I hope the answer is “I just got my property tax bill from the County of Maui and it’s an outrageous amount of increase with no justification for it’s magnitude.!” What crisis is being addressed by this??
No one seems to know!
This letter is being sent to you with an announcement of our New Campaign to restore prudent Fiscal Responsibility to Maui County immediately and if necessary, at the next election for the Maui County Council in 2020.
Did you get your new Property Tax Bill from the County of Maui yet?
The New Maui County Council passed New Tax Rates Effective July 1, 2019 as seen in the copy of Resolution No 19-89 attached and which represents the largest property tax increase in Maui’s history!
For the past 40 years, West Maui has paid over 50% of all the County of Maui budget for Property Tax Revenue. It’s significantly higher now as over 50% of all short-term rentals and Hotel and Time Shares are located in West Maui.
We are writing everyone we had on our mailing list since 2008 to respectfully suggest that you join us and to put your time and money into that support as soon as possible.
Thank you to our current members, supporters and our volunteer Board of Directors who have helped to shape WMTA into what it has become today and what’s needed for tomorrow.
Did you know that we have been without an Executive Director for 9 years? Our pervious Executive Directors were so crucial in our work to be able to have a face present at ALL the County meetings, community meetings, association meetings and more. Our goal is to be able to raise funds to hire a new Executive Director so that we can continue to be a driving active force in brining needed resources to our community.
As a Founding Member, and President, of the West Maui Taxpayers Association, I have and always will continue to fight for West Maui.
