No thats not that. The lol is on you. This is just another case of the papers giving bad information. The trustees did not pay all the taxes. The park agreed to pay all the back property taxes in their bankruptcy plan by last March. They park did not. They fell short by over a half million because the park continues loosing big money. Even with the land sales. There was no newspaper reporting the park failed to meet their bankruptcy plan. And now in August the paper reports the trustees paying paying all the taxes. What a laugh. Good thing the tax bodies studied the parks financial reports. Good thing the tax bodies knew the park would not be able to pay the back taxes. Good thing the tax bodies stood their ground for the last four years to collect the $428000 insurance money legally due to them. Thank you tax bodies for doing your job for the locals!The park never had insurance on the Beach Club. The park was not paid the insurance money. The hotel leaser had the insurance. The park never had any insurance money to pay on the taxes. Not only did the park did not pay off the back taxes the article says they still owe money to the tax bodies for legal fees. The paper makes it sound like the park is doing what it said it would do. The park did not. Makes me wonder how much money may be passing under the table to write these articles trying to fool local residents. Locals are tired up being lied to all the time. Locals prefer spending their money at the county fair and not the park.
To the locals reading about the park’s reported success in the paper, the paper ignores that the park is failing to pay its taxes. The paper has not reported to residents that U.S. bankruptcy court filings show the attorney for the lake sewer system officially told the bankruptcy court last month the park has not paid its sewer taxes since February of 2016. No surprise there. The park propaganda source actually falsely told locals the park paid off the balance on its back property taxes. That is how the local news reporting on park matters goes. But fake news is all the rage these days. The unpaid sewer bill does not count the $646,000 the park previously stated it owes and has not paid to the local sewer authority.The park's paid management charges the park $10,000 a month. Park figures filed in court indicate the park's paid mangers have charged more than $650,000 to to take over and run the park. The park continue to cheat locals by not paying their delinquent back and current sewer tax bills.
So after they've paid back something like 80% of 20 years of back taxes, you still want to rush to close the park why? So you can get a short term fix of selling the land under it to a real estate developer that'll demand TIFs to actually develop it into condos or townhomes?
" Lorrainne " from reading it's past posts seems to be nothing more than a bitter troll. Granted, the park has it's problems (yes, I know that's an understatement ) but at least someone there is trying. And at 10 bucks for an all day pass it's an amusingly good deal.
Lorraine comes across as a NIMBY who's looking for any reason possible to close the park in spite of the obvious value the park if successful can have for the local economy. Unfortunately they don't know nearly as much about economics as they think.
