MEADVILLE, Pa. (AP) - A judge has delayed the sheriff’s sale of a 122-year-old amusement park in northwestern Pennsylvania until objections by the state attorney general’s office can be heard next month.

The Meadville Tribune (http://bit.ly/1vHqAOY ) reported Tuesday that a Crawford County judge has delayed the sale until after a Nov. 24 hearing on the objections.

Conneaut (kaw-nee-AWT’) Lake Park had been scheduled to be sold on Nov. 7 to recoup more than $927,000 in taxes owed to Crawford County and other entities.

But the attorney general is opposing the sale because the park is a tax-exempt charitable trust, among other issues.

Conneaut Lake Park’s trustees still hope a financial reorganization will allow them to redevelop, revitalize and expand the facilities.

The park, about 95 miles north of Pittsburgh, opened in 1892.
