Franklin County voters are urged to vote "NO" on Issue 6, a $33 million permanent property tax increase much of which will be used to build a third zoo facility near the site of the to-be-demolished Veterans Memorial. The third zoo will be in addition to the 588 acre Delaware County facility and the 10,000 acre Muskingum County facility known as "The Wilds." Few taxpayers are aware that the Zoo owns this wildlife conservation center in Zanesville.
We love the zoo, but do we really need a third zoo?
