Council enhances online presence
WAILUKU, Hawaii – The Office of Council Services has launched an online news and information website, mauicounty.us, to keep the public informed about news and events of the Maui County Council, Council Chair Gladys Baisa announced today.
“We continue to explore innovative ways to communicate to members of the public to let them know what happens in and beyond the Council Chamber,” Baisa said. “The council’s work means little if residents do not know about it.”
The website includes press releases issued by council members, blog posts on recent council activity and other content provided by the nine council members about their legislative work.
Mauicounty.us features a responsive layout to allow users to view the website on a variety of mobile devices. The website is also user-friendly, which offers ease and convenience to all visitors, including those with disabilities.
The website is intended to encourage public discussion about council business. Social media buttons allow users to easily share posts with their friends and followers.
The council’s new web presence at mauicounty.us is intended to complement content already provided by the council on Facebook, Twitter and the administration-maintained mauicounty.gov website. The new website’s goal is to bring timely, accurate and factual information to constituents about county business.
“Future considerations for the council’s online presence include an integrated bill and resolution tracking system and webcasting of meetings,” Baisa said. “Members of this council have worked diligently to promote communication and efficiency, so I encourage everyone to utilize these resources and suggest improvements.”
