CL Park opened Friday for weekends
Written by David Schaef

Conneaut Lake Park opened for the summer this past Friday with plans to be open all summer but only on the weekends - Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays through mid-October.

While no new rides are up and running, the effort to capture customers is the new price setup.

All day rides are $10, about half of last year’s prices.

Plans are to charge just $5 on the second Sunday of each month and the same on the first Friday when grandparents can ride free after they buy one wristband.

There are no parking or admission fees.

The park’s opening was made possible when the federal bankruptcy judge allowed the Conneaut Lake Park Trustees to borrow $300,000 recently, money that was said to be needed to open the park for the season.

As noted in these pages in the previous addition, the Conneaut School Board approved a preliminary budget for the year to begin July 1, that does not contain a tax increase when school directors met in voting session Wednesday evening.

The vote to approve that tentative budget passed on a 7-2 vote with John Burnham and Brian Boyce voting no, Burnham saying he was not sure he approved how all the money is being spent. Boyce did not comment on his vote.

The budget is estimated at $37,032,267.00, with no increase included from state sources as the state budget approval plays out in Harrisburg with a new first year Democratic governor in place who is working with a Republican controlled legislature.

School directors increased real estate taxes a year ago by a .50 margin with half of the increase mandated to go to the ever increasing pension fund.
