Summit Township Supervisors in Crawford County are now looking at a sheriffs sale as a way to sell Conneaut Lake Park.

At a supervisors meeting earlier this week, township solicitor, attorney Bill Walker, said that a law was changed last January that now allows the county commissioners to sell Conneaut Lake Park for back taxes at a sheriffs sale, rather than a tax sale that was scheduled for September 26th.

Attorney Walker said the difference between the two sales is that in a tax sale, the property could be sold in separate parcels, but in a sheriffs sale, the entire park would be sold as one unit.
The park reportedly owes 900 thousand dollars in back taxes.
