Zoo levy to be placed on November ballot

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

The Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden announced today that, after receiving the unanimous support of the Board of Hamilton County Commissioners, the Zoo Tax Levy has officially been accepted and placed on the November 5, 2013 ballot for a renewal without a tax increase.  

The levy, officially listed on the ballot as Issue #2, would provide property tax support for the Zoo for five years (2014-2018) and would cost the owner of a $100,000 home approximately $10 per year.

The zoo levy is currently only 20% of the zoo's annual budget, down from 41% in 1993. 

Levy funds can be used only for feeding and caring for zoo animals, for horticulture needs, and building and maintenance repairs.  

The levy approved by the Board of Hamilton County Commissioners would generate, if approved by Hamilton County voters, approximately $6.7 million annually for the next five years.
