Indiana, PA - Indiana County

MEADVILLE (AP) — A reconfigured group of trustees wants a judge to let it oversee a historic 122-year-old amusement park in northwestern Pennsylvania, and let it come up with a plan to pay off more than $750,000 in property taxes and penalties.

The Meadville Tribune reported the Economic Progress Alliance of Crawford County wants to form a new oversight board containing some members of the Trustees of Conneaut Lake Park, which has overseen the park since 2007.

An ongoing lawsuit by the state attorney general’s office, which oversees such nonprofits, seeks to remove the trustees for falling behind on the taxes and failing to have adequate insurance when fires burned the park’s Dreamland Ballroom in 2008 and its Beach Club in August.
