Like riders of Millennium Force, the city’s finances have experienced some steep drops.

Cedar Point says it’s willing to help the city get back up, if residents pitch in too.

John Hildebrandt, vice president and general manager of the amusement park, said Monday that Cedar Point will support a 0.25 percent increase in the admissions tax next year if city residents approve a 0.25 percent income-tax hike this November.

Hildebrandt said although Cedar Point has for 35 years opposed an admissions-tax increase, which he called a “targeted tax,” the company is willing to share the burden with residents given the harsh economic times.

No to both, says the editorial board
