Mayor Roth to hold second Hawaiʻi County town hall meeting June 13 in North Kona
Hawaiʻi County Mayor Mitch Roth will hold a town hall Tuesday night at Old Kona Airport Beach Park Pavilion to answer questions and concerns from residents — and to provide updates on county business and projects.
This June 13 town hall, from 5 to 7 p.m., is the second in a series called: “Sustainable Horizons: Mayor Roth’s Community Impact Check-in.”
The goal is to establish a platform where residents can stay informed about local initiatives, express their concerns and actively contribute to shaping the future of Hawai’i Island.
The community meetings will be scheduled across the island in an effort to foster engagement with the residents. The first meeting took place in South Kona on May 30.
A variety of issues were mentioned during the first meeting, including the island-wide staffing shortage; affordable housing so young people donʻt move off the island; and a need for the county to put more informative signs in public parks.
During the South Kona meeting, residents heard from county leaders who provided updates about plans, goals and initiatives impacting local neighborhoods.
Those unable to attend the meeting in person, can watch it on Mayor Roth’s Facebook page and Nā Leo TV, Channel 55.
