ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) - St. Louis Zoo officials have made a proposal to get government funding from St. Charles County.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the first pitch was made last night before the county council, for a sales tax increase to help fund the popular attraction. Currently, the Zoo receives government funding only from St. Louis City and St. Louis County.
The council's chairman offered a different idea. Drop the Zoo's historical free admission policy and charge a $5-$10 entrance fee.
