GRAND RAPIDS, MICH. - Supporters of the John Ball Zoo and Grand Rapids Public Museum are launching a campaign and backing a millage to provide funding for the facilities.
It's called the "Yes! Zoo and Museum" campaign.
A millage on the November ballot would provide money to operate the facilities. Supporters say the zoo receives a small amount of money from local government, while the public museum receives no annual public funding.
The millage would cost the average taxpayer about $37 a year, which would be added to their property taxes.
