RESOLUTION 08 - 101
A RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF HOMER, ALASKA, CREATING AN AGRICULTURAL FREE ENTERPRISE ZONE.

WHEREAS, The original foundation of civilization is agricultural development; and

WHEREAS, Food production is necessary to sustain human population; and

WHEREAS, The greater proportion of our food is produced and imported by ship and by road from out of state; and

WHEREAS, The cost of transport and importation of foodstuffs are increasing rapidly; and

WHEREAS, The local production of farm produce and livestock greatly enhance the sustainability and security of our resident population; and

WHEREAS, An economic incentive may have the effect of increased local employment and food production; and

WHEREAS, A tax levied on local agriculture is regressive in nature, counter to the greater security, sustainability and self sufficiency of the local population in the event of natural disaster, economic disruption, or transportation delay.

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that all Fish, Farm, Livestock and Agricultural Produce grown, harvested, processed, butchered and sold within the Kenai Peninsula Borough shall be exempt from any form of sales taxation.
