That seems like a pretty good deal, which makes me believe even more that this all transpired primarily for financial reasons.

As a municipal Finance Director, I can attest that this seems to be a good deal for both sides.

I never had any issue with either the CP or Sandusky police, so I'm indifferent on the whole thing, but I noticed on the linked page that Omni Fiber is starting internet service in Sandusky. Anyone have any experience with them? Any comparisons to Buckeye cable?

Promoter of fog.

Being in the insurance industry, specifically the E&S industry...

I bet that the employee dorm allegations had a TON to do with this.

Cedar Point running and having its own police force is a HUGE exposure. It opens them up to a swath of potential lawsuits. Everything from mishandling small instances, to large... More ambiguous situations, to who knows what. Never know when a human cop will nake a bad call with a trigger. Luckily its never happened at the Point to my knowledge.

But yeah, I bet insurance, liability, and cost in general as others have states has alot to do with it.
