SB 1002 - This act authorizes the establishment of the Kansas City Zoological District which may be composed of Jackson, Clay, Platte, and Cass Counties at the option of the voters of each such county. Upon voter approval, each member county will be authorized to levy a county-wide sales tax, not to exceed one quarter of one percent, for the benefit of the district. The district will be governed by a commission which will provide for the support of zoological activities within the member counties of the district. The commission must provide annual reports to the governing body of each member county, the Kansas City Board of Parks and Recreation, and the Friends of the Zoo, Inc. detailing the commission's operations and transactions. Administrative expenses of the district incurred during the first six months of existence will be covered by the counties comprising the district.
