The committee that reviews county tax levies is recommending Hamilton County Commissioners place a flat renewal of the Cincinnati Zoo levy on the November ballot.

That's a win for zoo as that's what it had requested.

The committee says it believes the Zoo wouldn't be able to operate at its "current high level of effectiveness without the levy funds." 

The county's Tax Levy Review Committee is also recommending the Zoo continue to look for ways to be less reliant on county taxpayers.

The Tax Levy Review Committee is scheduled to present its recommendations at the Hamilton County Commission regular staff meeting on Monday.
