March 11, 2914 - The tax sale of Conneaut Lake Park is set for September, but now some are asking the Crawford County Commissioners to postpone that sale.

At a weekly work session this morning, the executive director of the Crawford County Convention and Visitor's Bureau asked the commissioners to move the tax sale from September to November.

Two events are held at the park in October and November that bring in about 54,000 to the area.

Figures from the Department of Community and Economic Department show that the Pumpkin Fest and Ghost Lake bring in $59 million to the county.

Officials say if the tax sale is held in September, it will have a negative impact on the events.

The Conneaut Lake Park chairman of the board says they are still looking for ways to pay the back taxes.

The tax sale is set for September 26th.

No word on when the commissioners will make a decision.
