A proposal to raise the sales tax to pay for a new animal conservation park in north St. Louis County will officially be on the ballot in November.

The St. Louis County Council voted Tuesday to allow the voters of St. Louis County to decide on the proposed one-eighth percent sales tax increase.

If approved, the money would go towards paying for a conservation park run by the St. Louis Zoo. The zoo purchased the land in March.

Private money is also funding the project.
