Geauga County taxpayers are on the hook for a $230,000 separation settlement with Jim Adams, the embattled – and now former – executive director of the Geauga County Board of Mental Health and Recovery Services.

Mr. Adams, who served as the board’s CEO for 35 years without a single blemish or negative mark on his employment record, was placed on paid administrative leave by the mental health board on May 4 with no public – or private – explanation provided.
