Judge rules against zoo on Cass County tax district

A circuit judge ruled against the Kansas City Zoo’s effort to get a taxing district on the ballot in Cass County. The judge found that, even though the zoo collected enough signatures from registered voters on petitions to hold an initiative election, the Cass County Board of Commissioners was not obligated under state law to place the issue on the ballot.
