Facing a steep incline in costs, the board discussed several options in order to increase revenue such as increasing the costs to facilities such as golf courses and the zoo, to increasing taxes.
President of the Board Chris Riley says anytime you have to discuss raising costs, it’s always a tough decision…
Riley stressed the importance of raising costs while also retaining patrons, calling it a fine line to walk.
The tax increase has still yet to be drawn up but the agreed upon figure was $1.06 per household.
The increase would be the first in 4 years.
