Financing of St. Louis Zoo

The St. Louis Zoo is proposing an increased sales tax to help pay for zoo operations. Like other critics, I am opposed to this tax. Instead of a sales tax, an admission fee should be charged to all visitors who do not live in St. Louis City or County. For years city and county residents have supported the zoo and other cultural institutions with taxes. Folks from the surrounding counties pay nothing. People who live outside the city and county could avoid an admission charge by paying a membership fee. Fair is fair. Written by Paul Dribin
