Beach Club leaseholder seeks new avenue to get insurance money

(Continued)

SUMMIT TOWNSHIP — To rebuild or not to rebuild

In addition to the issue regarding the insurance, another decision to be made deals with rebuilding the Beach Club.

Sutterlin had said he would only rebuild if the Trustees would get a separate tax identification number for the Beach Club and Dockside so he could pay the taxes and keep them current. He said without that separate ID number, he would not consider rebuilding. He also asked Trustees to extend the lease to 30 years.

Asked what the status of that request is, Sutterlin said, “The Trustees refuse to meet or communicate in any manner. We are making attempts but they will not respond.”

Moyers, however, said, “The plan that was presented to the Trustees just four days after the fire contained criteria, stipulations and requests that were in some case beyond the board’s jurisdiction. Beyond that, the proposal’s only cure for the issues between the two parties was for the board to forgive all grievances against Park Restoration: No compromise, no settlement, no cure.”

Moyers was referring to another issue where the Trustees allege that Park Restoration is in breach of contract.

Sutterlin said Park Restoration is going ahead with sponsoring events to raise funds to be able to rebuild the Beach Club and Dockside. The first of such events — Rock 2 Rebuild — is being held through Sunday.
