Zoo Levy Renewal
Hamilton County residents will decide whether or not to renew the Zoo levy on November 5. The proposed 5-year property tax levy, which would generate approximately $6.7 million annually, currently accounts for 23% of the Zoo’s annual budget. The funds can be used only for the feed and care of Zoo animals, horticulture needs, and building and maintenance repairs. Kroger Company Group Vice President for Corporate Affairs and Cincinnati Zoo Board Member Lynn Marmer talks about the levy renewal.
