His tenure overseeing the Geauga Park District proceeded quietly until November 2013, when the Park Board fired longstanding Executive Director Tom Curtin after 14 years at the helm.
Board member Jim Patterson voted to keep Curtin. "A car with its tires still on it was ordered buried by Tom Curtin at the Felkin property on Bradford Drive in Munson Township. The Felkins' personal property, which was left to the park district by Donald and Dorothy Felkin, was never probated and the estate could have been contested. Firearms, including a Thompson submachine gun, that were part of the estate were negligently mishandled and to this day have not been adequately accounted for," Fishbach wrote in Geauga County's News-Herald. Curtin denied that the guns went missing, but admitted that burying the car in the basement of the property was a mistake - a hasty decision in an incident that occurred over a decade ago. In the interim, Curtin had built the Geauga Park District into one of the state's most respected institutions. From the Dec. 17, 2013, News-Herald: "Tom is a great person. Opposition to Grendell's vision for the Geauga Park District started with the firing of Curtin, but the threat of mining and logging the park galvanized the broader community. Grendell describes the incident at the Felkin property that sparked his recommendation to the Park Board to not renew Executive Director Tom Curtin's contract.

While the members of former Geauga County Park Director Tom Curtin's inner circle may lament his departure, the truth is that the recent change in the management of the Geauga County Park District leadership has created an environment where employees feel more involved and appreciated.
Acting Director John Oros has provided outstanding leadership and under his expert direction the park district has maintained its excellent programs and park facilities without the costly turmoil experienced under former Director Curtin. Working together, the new park board, Director Oros and the staff have eliminated the $1,900,000 spending deficit in former Director Curtin's proposed 2014 budget, without the loss of a single employee or park program.
