One of my favorite things to do when my kids were small was to go to the Kansas City Zoo. As the years went by, admission prices went up, my kids weren't kids anymore, gas prices went up, and we went to the zoo less often. A couple of years ago, we voted on a zoo tax. More taxes usually don’t have an advantage, but in this case, the zoo lowered its prices for people living in Jackson and Clay counties. Hooray! Now with the price of admission at just $5.00 for those residents; it means more visits!
