Sandusky falls short of parking tax goal

Wednesday, 07 January 2004

The city of Sandusky missed their 2003 estimate of $600,000 in parking taxes by over $200,000, the Sandusky Register reported.

Cedar Point, paying the parking tax under protest, contributed 99.5% of the tax collected by the city. The park has said it will take legal action against the city claiming the tax is unfairly targeted to one business.

Four recently elected commissioners have promised to repeal the parking tax. Bill Lang, the attorney representing the city on the parking tax, said if the tax was repealed, no money would be refunded.
