Zoo Tax

The voters of St. Louis County will be asked to approve a sales tax increase to support increased operations of the St. Louis Zoo. They are talking of building a new facility in north county.

I am opposed to a sales tax which is regressive. An approach fo fundraising which makes sense is to charge admission to visitors who are not residents of St. Louis City or County, or allow these county to join the Museum District, and or allow residents of outlying counties to enter the zoo for free if they buy an annual membership. The system is fair by charging users of the service for the privilege of entry. Written by Paul Dribin
