CL Park payout plan extends 20 years Print E-mail

The Conneaut Lake Park plan to get out of bankruptcy and pay off creditors calls for some debt payments to extend 20 years according to documents filed with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Erie last week.

The plan was filed at the court on Friday, July 31, with a judge on Monday, Aug. 3, scheduling a hearing on the park’s plan to pay the $3.8 million in debts for September 1.

The plan suggests the four governments [Conneaut School District, Crawford County, and the townships of Sadsbury and Summit], owed over $900,000 in back taxes, would be paid in a year while others would wait longer with the plan saying payments on some debts would extend 20 years and others being paid a “modest” amount.

Creditors were given until August 25, to file their responses to the Park plan which relies on receiving the proceeds from the fire insurance on the burned down Beach Club and selling some land in the Park.

The main property to be sold is listed as the Flynn property which has 330 feet of lake front access and could generate from over $900,000 to $1.3 million.

Summer Reader Winners - Linesville Public Library summer reading program winners are pictured above. Wednesday, July 29, was the Linesville Library’s Summer Reading Picnic! Miss Telce explained that each week during Summer Reading readers met a Local Hero and that each one of us can be a hero. She said that it can be a farmer, builder, garage person or anybody who helps someone else. She read several books including a farmer and a builder to prove that they are heroes too. Everyone was so excited because this was the day that the names would be drawn to win the “big” prizes. Everyone then went outside where hot dogs, chips, cookies and lemonade were served. Every child/young person who came then got to pick out a book to take home the they drew for the prizes. See column page 12.

Conneautville Borough Council may adopt a Property Maintenance Code at its meeting on Monday, August 10 - the so-called International Property Maintenance Code that will tell owners of property how much space they must have in bedrooms, how large various rooms may be in their houses and then how buildings are condemned and requiring various permits and collection of fees.

The legal advertisement for adoption of the code appeared in the area’s daily newspaper on Sunday, July 26, and said, if adopted the ordinance would be effective that August 10 date.

An example in the proposed ordinance, section 404.4 - Bedroom and living room requirements notes that “Every bedroom and living room shall comply with the requirements of Sections 404.4.1 through 404.4.5...404.4.1 Room area - “Every living room shall contain at least 120 square feet (11.2 m2) and every bedroom shall contain a minimum of 70 square feet (6.5 m2) and every bedroom occupied by more than one person shall contain a minimum of 50 square feet (4.6 m2) of floor area for each occupant thereof.”

Another part of the code, unless the council has changed it from the standard code says, “A habitable room, other than a kitchen, shall be a minimum of 7 feet (2134 mm) in any plan dimension. Kitchens shall have a minimum clear passageway of 3 feet (914 mm) between counterfronts and appliances or counterfronts and walls. “

Another part says on “Minimum ceiling heights. Habitable spaces, hallways, corridors, laundry areas, bathrooms, toilet rooms and habitable basement areas shall have a minimum clear ceiling height of 7 feet (2134 mm).”
