John Ball Zoo and the Grand Rapids Public Museum launched their “Yes! Zoo and Museum” campaign to encourage voters to approve a new millage.
The 10-year millage will be on the November 8 ballot in Kent County.
It would be an average increase for Kent County homeowners to about $37 per year.
The zoo and museum say it would raise enough money to care for 1,600 animals and 250,000 artifacts as well has help pay for renovations and more education programs.
