The Ohio Department of Natural Resources is not giving up its search for someone to run the new dining lodge a Lake Hope State Park.
ODNR's Jim Henahan said today they're looking at ways to entice vendors to submit bids.
"Decisions on this should be complete next week," he says.
Henahan says then the bidding process will "re-start."
The first time ODNR asked for bids, none were submitted.
September 1 is the expected completion date for construction of the lodge.
ODNR was hoping to have a concessionaire in place by October 1.
