Farm property tax exemption fails to see the light of day


A short-lived farm property tax exemption proposal died during an assembly meeting Monday afternoon.

Assembly member Jeigh Stanton Gregor had been contacted by residents on the possibility of the exemption earlier this year and asked in January if he could work with staff to develop an ordinance for future consideration.

On Monday he said he liked “the idea of promoting agriculture in Southeast” because it’s challenging, but added that he could no longer support the ordinance knowing the exemption would also apply to marijuana grow operations — “a high profit business.”
