4.60.010 Public statement and Process.
The initiative and referendum are forms of direct democracy and as such their availability to, and utilization by, the public must be facilitated while, at the same time, the integrity of the procedures must be maintained through mechanisms which discourage, reduce, and prevent both the occurrence and appearance of fraud. Further, in order to insure clear, fixed and reliable standards, it is necessary that citizens and those officials charged with the validation of petitions be able to rely on designated official, published maps, plats and records of the City of Homer, Kenai Peninsula Borough and on the published voter registration records of the state. The provisions of Alaska Statute 29.26 Article 2, relating to Initiative and Referendum are incorporated into this chapter as if fully set out. (Ord. 95-1(S)(part), 1995).
