Conneaut Lake Park headed to tax sale over $877K in property taxes

By Keith Gushard

MEADVILLE — The Crawford County Board of Commissioners said Wednesday it will put into motion plans to  have Conneaut Lake Park be sold for overdue property taxes.

However, commissioners said any sale won’t happen until at least the September 2014 tax upset sale due to the number of properties and complexities involved.

At their board meeting Wednesday afternoon, commissioners issued a statement saying “The obligation of the commissioners is to the taxpayers of Crawford County.”

As of April 30, Trustees of Conneaut Lake Park owed $877,168.24 in back taxes and interest to Crawford County, Conneaut School District and Sadsbury and Summit townships, according to figures from the Crawford County Treasurer’s Office. The overdue taxes and interest date back to 1997, according to the Treasurer’s Office.
