CL Park shows operating loss
Written by David Schaef

Conneaut Lake Park shows an operating loss for the month of June and year to date in reports filed last week in court documents.

A court hearing is scheduled for the first week of August in the continuing bankruptcy case that will include a legal brief from the state Attorney General’s office that may affect how the insurance money from the Beach Club fire is dispersed.

That brief cites court cases on how money has been dispersed from similar situations.

The June operating statement from the Park, shows gross revenues of $72,170.35, less cost of goods sold for a gross profit of $71,827.05

Operating expenses include insurance of $6,355.50; insider compensation, $32,572.22; management fees/bonus, $1,032.89; repairs and maintenance, $39,406.91; payroll taxes, $3676.47, with total operating expenses before depreciation listed as $207,013.50, making a net loss of $134,562.45, plus under reorganization items, professional fees of $17,319.04, for a net loss of $151,881.49.

Gunfire hot topic during CL regional police meeting
Written by Lisa Houserman

The Conneaut Lake Regional Police Commission held their July meeting with members Richard Holabaugh, Lyle Hoovler, Kevin VanHonk, Tim Kaider, Bonnie Smith and Rose Mumau present. Police Chief Todd Pfeifer was absent and there were no citizens in attendance.

Conneaut Lake Mayor Tim Kaider said that he had received two complaints about an individual firing a pistol in a non rural portion of the township. Both Vernon and the Conneaut Lake Regional Police arrived on the scene. Sometime later, the shooter, so to speak, told Kaider that the officers said he was within his legal rights to fire the weapon. Kaider pointed out that he didn't think he had gotten the “whole story” from the resident but, that was what he had been told.

Holabaugh said that it is true that a person may fire a gun but there are certain conditions and laws on the books at the state level, concerning such.

Secretary Mumau added that a firearm cannot be discharged within a certain proximity to buildings, homes or other structures.

Township Supervisor Lyle Hoovler stated that it is wise to carry out target practice, for example, at a club with an NRA, (National Rifle Association), approved backstop. He said that not having an appropriate area in which to discharge a weapon can lead to serious problems due to the downrange factor.
