The Cincinnati Museum Center's board agreed Thursday to support a sales tax on the November ballot to help fix the museum's home at Union Terminal.

The board of trustees will make an announcement Friday at 9 a.m. on why they support the levy.

Hamilton County Commissioners voted 2 to 1 on Aug. 6 to add a quarter-cent county sales tax hike to the November ballot to help pay for the restoration of Union Terminal.

However, Cincinnati Music Hall was not included. 

The Cultural Facilities Task Force will also announce Friday that the group will remain actively committed to he completion of both Union Terminal and Music Hall.

"The group will develop new funding alternatives for Music Hall. It is expected that The Task Force and Music Hall resident companies will state their full endorsement of the sales tax to repair Union Terminal, said Elizabeth Pierce, the museum center's spokesperson, to FOX19.

Pierce says the Museum Center's Board is also committed to helping support a solution for Music Hall.
