Yesterday, Homer voted to give this SINGLE USE PLASTIC BAG BAN another try! I was actually pleasantly surprised by the wide margin of YES votes. The unofficial results from the City of Homer website are 748 yes and 406 no. Another try? Yes, we would have been the first city in Alaska to ban single use plastic bags and we even voted yes on it a few years back. But, Homer is a unique Alaskan community of strong-minded people with diverse views, opinions, and lifestyles so when important things come up for a vote it can get a bit difficult and unpleasant.
