Sue McClure said she was nearly done giving assembly <br /> reports, as she would soon be termed out of office. There were a lot of things happening on the <br /> assembly,but mostly affecting the other side of the Kenai Peninsula.The borough website had a lot <br /> of information including the entire election brochure. Also available on the borough website were <br /> agendas for the Marijuana Task Force and the Healthcare Task Force. McClure would soon be <br /> attending the annual community meetings in six different outlying communities to discuss how to <br /> use revenue sharing monies for services.The city and borough election was on October 6,2015.Her <br /> seat would be up for election on the borough ballot. She encouraged the public to read up on the <br /> candidates and the borough-wide Proposition 1,which would repeal the authorization of general rule <br /> cities to levy and collect sales tax year round on non-prepared food. These cities were originally <br /> allowed to opt out of the exemption, but if this citizen initiative passed, that decision would be <br /> reversed. The cities of Seward and Kenai were actually exempt from this as they were home rule <br /> cities, but the entire borough would be able to vote on this proposition. The assembly's annual <br /> meeting in Homer was September 15, 2015. <br />
