County of Maui and Ogden Newspapers Agree to End Discussions on Sale of Maui News Building

The County of Maui and Ogden Newspapers, Inc. have agreed to end discussions on the sale of The Maui News building in Wailuku. In March 2021, the Maui County Council passed legislation for the administration to acquire the 6.3-acre parcel for $9.8 million to be converted into needed office space.

“I gave it my best effort while we negotiated for months in good faith,” explained Mayor Michael Victorino. “But economic conditions improved, and in the end the company opted to retain ownership of their building. I’m disappointed for the county, but I’m also pleased for our home-grown newspaper.”

“I want to thank Mayor Victorino and the County of Maui for working with us on the proposed sale of The Maui News building,” said Publisher Chris Minford.  “We have decided to retain the real estate and continue to publish The Maui News from our current location.  The Maui News has been an important part of the Maui community for more than 120 years.  The paper will continue to be a valuable resource for our readers and advertisers for many years to come.”
