CINCINNATI -- Voters said yes Tuesday to a tax levy renewal in Hamilton County for the Cincinnati Zoo park services and facilities.
Renewal of the Issue 2 levy is to provide and maintain zoological park services and facilities.
The levy will generate about $6.8 million annually in revenues. Because it is a renewal, property owners won’t see an increase in their tax bill.
The levy will continue to cost the owner of a $100,000 home $10.60 per year.
Levy supporters say the renewal is a decrease in money for the zoo due to inflation.
Levy funds can only be used for feeding and caring for the zoo animals, horticulture needs and building maintenance and repair.
The vote won by a majority 80 percent of the vote.
It will launch in 2013, first due in calendar year 2014.
