Zoo Tax Wins

Nov 8, 2011

Kansas City, Mo. – The budget for the Kansas City Zoo is about to get a whole lot bigger. Voters in both Jackson and Clay Counties have approved a one-eighth-cent sales tax to support the Zoo. The tax will generate about $14 million a year. With their new millions, Zoo officials plan to expand, offer new exhibits (penguins maybe) and attract almost twice as many visitors, about a million a year.
