We debuted a new feature on our opinions page this week with our readers sounding off on the possibility of a new zoo sales tax. What do you think? Follow us on Facebook.
“No new taxes for the zoo go to admission fee! No other city does this why should St. Louis?” – Kenneth Meyer
“Yes, charge all non St. Louis residents for admission.” -Linda Klein Jones Ballowe
“I think they should charge admission for people that do not live in the museum/zoo tax area. People from out of town will pay to go to the zoo. When we went to Denver we paid a lot to go to their zoo. The cost did not deter us. Our Zoo is 100 times better.” -Kathy Swanson
“No admission charges, part of what makes it one of the top 5 zoos in the world!” -Sonny Ketcham
“And as long as its reasonable 5 bucks or less…I am fine with it!…but watch it taxes seem to do nothing over and over again” -Ryan Klein
“Charge admission to anyone who does not show proof of St. Louis County Residence. $2-$3 admission to those will make a big difference.” -Mike Self
