Sandusky may repeal the parking tax that it passed last year, a measure that affected only Cedar Point. The park paid $372,000 "under protest," and openly says it has been exploring the possibility of a lawsuit. The tax also became an issue for campaigning commissioners.

The Commission President, at the end of the story, says they are going to have to cut back on services like snow removal. Seems they made a mistake in using that money in their budget when they knew full well that Cedar Point was going to contest the issue.

Speaking of snow removal, I am pretty sure Cedar Point does the snow removal for everyone that lives on the Chausee. I don't think the residents have to pay anything for that.

The park can hardly be considered a bad corporate neighbor.

But since their entire business runs on good customer relations (vague jab ... ) they're very vulnerable to being pushed around, even if they are a great neighbor. If they push the tax on 'em and CP pushes back, they're the big bad company pushing around the little guy. If they don't push back, well then they're left with a bigger operating expense and higher parking fees.

Give 'em a million, they'll wanna know why its not two.
