The lists below are the TOP 100 salaries for all Geauga County employees for 2009. These do not reflect all the extra perks such as health coverage, gas allowance, car, travel allowance, memberships to health clubs, etc.
I don't know about you, but I have a real problem with "Tulip" Tom Curtin and others from the Geauga Park District making the kind of money they do for protecting petunias and searching for woolybears.
They provide us with no critical services but the Sheriff Dept. does, and the difference in salaries between these people in the Park District and the Sheriff is so lopsided it is disgusting.
Robert Urban, chief ranger for the Park District, makes over $75,000.00....more than our Sheriff.... and has a cake job....and probably doesn't have anywhere near the training the Sheriff has!
The Geauga Park District sucks
a whole lot of money out of Geauga, and in a time when the county is going into the RED bigtime.
We need that money for critical services!!
Hey!.... Park Board of Commissioners, Robert McCullough, John Leech, Mark Rzeszotarski....If you really care about the stability of Geauga, then why don't you give back some money or stop taking so much. We don't need anymore parks....we have too many already and yet you three keep looking to aquire more and more and more and more and more!! I know for sure you guys aren't going to protect the county!
When checking out the salaries, you may find other disturbing things that come to mind....I don't have time to cover them all here.
