MONTICELLO, Ind. (WLFI) -  A statement from White County and Monticello leaders is providing a glimmer of hope for Indiana Beach.

It confirms the city is looking for potential buyers to keep the amusement park open. They are reportedly meeting with industry leaders, brokers, and investors.

Although Apex Parks, which owns the shuttered site, was not a part of the statement, city leaders say they're keeping in contact with the company.

"We all realize that this is not a personal decision, but a business one," said Mayor Cathy Gross, "We wish to remain good neighbors with Apex should there be any opportunity for a sale or resolution."

Apex Parks had Indiana Beach up for sale for a while before opting to close.

They said they couldn't find a buyer.

News 18 will be keeping a close eye on the situation if any potential buyers do come forward.
