(Associated Press) A Christian theme park with a 500-foot-long (152-meter-long) Noah’s Ark is not paying enough in property taxes, according to a Kentucky county school board.
Grant County’s school board filed a lawsuit against the Ark Encounter after losing an administrative appeal. The school board alleges the theme park has been undervalued by county officials.
