Call for New Board of Trustees for Conneaut Lake Park

Posted: Updated:

The owners of a company that operates Conneaut Lake Park's Beach Club and Hotel Conneaut are publicly calling for the removal of the park's court appointed board of trustees.

 The two developers who've leased the properties since 2009 feel the trustees have  failed to improve the park. And with $850,000 in back taxes, they're worried the park could be sold at auction to pay the debt.

 Greg Sutterlin and Steve Popovich say they have invested about $1 million into the hotel and club.  But they say the board has failed to keep up and improve the grounds and attractions, hurting their bottom line. They feel the only way to get the park on the right track is entirely new leadership. Sutterlin said, "We'd like to see an entirely new board. The board has prove itself not to be capable of making any good decisions. What made this come to a head was the inability to pay any taxes and not  paying any taxes in the past 4 years."

In a statement to WICU-WSEE, Brian Pulito, attorney for the board said, "The trustees feel it is more appropirate to handle the issues beween Park Restoration and the trustees privately as they are matters of business and not public opinion. In the meantime, the trustees continue to work with county officials  in working the kinks out of the plans that address the taxes. This too, at this juncture is in negotiation and therefore the details cannot be divulged at this time."
