Economic Alliance promises changes to CL Park governance

Crawford County Court of Common Pleas Judge Anthony Vardaro ruled on Thursday on a consent decree that ousts the current 7-member Board of Trustees at Conneaut Lake Park and will replace it with a board that will be run by the Economic Progress Alliance.

The decree was between state Attorney General Kathleen Kane and the Trustees of Conneaut Lake Park.

The current Trustees, in the agreement, do not admit to any wrongdoing or negligence but the agreement seeks a $200,000 payment from the Trustees errors and omissions insurance policy that covers companies and individuals from claims made by others for negligent actions.

The court action followed action by Kane who had petitioned the county court last October to dismiss the current board citing Trustees not taking advantage of business opportunities, pushed business away from Hotel Conneaut and noted a lack of insurance coverage [when Dreamland Ballroom was destroyed by an arsonist’s fire Feb. 1, 2008, and the Beach Club burned of undetermined causes Aug. 1, 2013].
