Conneaut School District real estate taxpayers will see a small .50 mill increase in their real estate taxes come the 2014 - 15 school year that begins July 1.

Faced with an increase in retirement costs of over $546,980 and a projection of fund balance decreasing by over $7-million in three years, a majority of the board opted to begin facing the issues and approved that .50 mill tax increase - the first in three years - when the school directors met in monthly voting session last week.

The increase to the average property owner will be less than $15.00 as figures for a property assessed at $30,000 would see a $15.00 increase. The average property assessment in the district is just over $23,000. Property owners with a $100,000 assessment will see their taxes increase $50.00

The last time real estate taxes were raised in the school district was the 2010 - 11 school year.

Economic Alliance promises changes to CL Park governance Print E-mail

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].
