Louisville mayor proposes bonds for Kentucky Kingdom

Posted Thursday, May 5, 2011 12:45 PM | Contributed by Jeff

For two years now, the rides at Kentucky Kingdom have not moved and hundreds are without jobs, but a new plan could save the park. Under the mayor's plan, $17.5-million would be issued in city bonds, backed by parking fees, payroll taxes collected, and a third party investor. The in-depth proposal was presented to Kentucky Kingdom investor Ed Hart and Kentucky State Fair Board President Harold Workman.

Well, it depends on how you read the statement. The ride that are at Kentucky Kingdom have not moved in 2 years. Chang isn't at Kentucky Kingdom anymore, so it wouldn't fit the statement. :-)

I'm glad Mr. Hart hasn't given up yet. He knows the park can survive with the right driving force behind it.
