AG asks judge to stop sale of Conneaut Lake Park

CONNEAUT, Ohio (WYTV) – The Pennsylvania Attorney General’s Office has asked a judge to stop the sheriff’s sale of Conneaut Lake Park.

The 122-year-old amusement park is scheduled to be sold November 7 to recoup more than $927.000 in back taxes.

Lawyers for the park contend they are a tax exempt charitable trust and can’t be sold at auction because any buyer must set aside the land for public use.

Conneaut Lake Park trustees are hoping a financial reorganization will allow them to redevelop, revitalize and expand the amusement park.
