Early results show unclear future for Reid Park Zoo tax

Reid Park Zoo faces an unclear future after election results too close to call.

Voters were asked to cast their ballots on two propositions concerning the zoo.

Proposition 202 would have funded improvements and maintenance projects at the zoo through a 1/10 cent sales tax. That vote passed 52 - 48%.

However, in order for that tax to be collected Reid Park needed voters to also approve Proposition 203, which would have allowed for the tax to be imposed.

That vote is currently leaning towards no but is too close to call.

Early results put the Prop 203 vote at 49.76% yes and 50.24% no.

"If proposition 202 passes but 203 doesn't that would be something for Mayor and Council to look at," said Nancy Kluge with the Reid Park Zoological Society.

Election officials say provisional ballots will still need be counted and that a recount is possible.
