ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

A proposal to charge admission to the St. Louis Zoo was rejected by the St. Louis Zoo-Museum District Tuesday.

The proposal would have charged admission to residents from outside St. Louis City and County. A former board chairman floated the idea, saying the admission money would preserve the zoo’s quality.

The zoo is currently funded by property taxes in St. Louis City and County, donations concessions.

A recent survey rated the zoo the best free attraction in the nation.
