KAHULUI, Hawaii (AP) - People who camp at a Maui beach park will temporarily lose access to permits come September as the county works to clean up the area.

Maui News reports (https://bit.ly/2bu4zPy) county parks and recreation officials will put overnight camping permits on hold as part of a plan to address complaints from Kanaha Beach Park visitors.

A news release lists issues including calls to police each week about drunken and disorderly conduct.

Park campers have been allowed to take down their tents on Mondays and return to the park Wednesday mornings.

Wailuku resident Steven Carroll’s sister camps at the park and says the process to get her into a shelter has been slow.



Campers say there are about 100 people who live at the park, and that some do not have permits.
