Conneaut SD moves towards Park tax sale
Written by David Schaef

Three persons urged the Conneaut School Board of Directors to not support a tax sale of Conneaut Lake Park when the school directors met in monthly session July 9, at Conneaut Area Senior High School.

The school directors, after much discussion, passed a motion to authorize a sheriff’s sale proceeding on a 6-1 vote, however with an understanding the school lawyer would not proceed to file the necessary paperwork until after a meeting was held involving the four taxing bodies involved - Crawford County commissioners, Sadsbury and Summit Township supervisors and the school district.

The county commissioners were asking the school directors to file paper work leading to the sheriff’s sale [tax sale] which led school director John Burnham to say we should not be doing their dirty work.

Summit Township supervisors held their July public meeting, with presiding board members Bill Agnew, Harry McGrath and Jerauld Smith in attendance. Secretary Cindy McCoy took the minutes and there were 13 citizens present.

Under Public Comment, a man stood to ask whether the proposed Sheriff’s Sale of Conneaut Lake Park is still moving forward, and how would this affect him and others who hold 99-year leases on properties therein.

Summit Township Solicitor, William Walker stated that, yes, the Sheriff’s Sale is still scheduled to occur on October 4, 2014.

An audible sigh from the audience was heard at this news, their disappointment evident.

Attorney Walker explained that due to recent legislation being passed, that the Act #93 has added an amendment to the Municipal Claim and Tax Lien Law, that settles tax claims through judgements as opposed to Municipal Liens.

CELEBRATE - You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness. You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism. ~ Erma Bombeck. On July 4, 1776, we claimed our independence from Britain and Democracy was born. Happy birthday, America, July 4.

The plan stressed Reorganize, Revision and Revitalize

Mark Turner, leader of the EPACC, in explaining a wide range of details also suggested a 10 year plan to achieve the goals.

Under Reorganize, he said the Economic Progress Alliance (EPACC) will serve as catalyst to transition governance from a volunteer dependent operational board to a board of trustees focused on setting, guiding and reviewing policies intended to preserve and strengthen the assets of Conneaut Lake Park for the benefit of the public...EPACC representatives (3) serving on Conneaut Lake Park Board of Trustees, will not comprise the majority of trustees so as to avoid the potential assumption of CLP obligations by EPACC. It is anticipated that the reconstituted Board of Trustees...will enter into an administrative...
