Mill Creek board, former director continue talks

He and the board will continue with terms of resignation discussions until there’s mutual agreement.

CANFIELD — The former executive director of Mill Creek MetroParks said the terms of his resignation are still being discussed with the park board.

David Imbrogno of Berlin Center announced his intent to resign during an executive session of a special park-board meeting Aug. 31. His resignation was accepted by two of the three board members during a public session that followed, a park official said.

Linda Kostka, MetroParks director of development and marketing, said the board accepted Imbrogno’s resignation with a majority vote. Board President Virginia Dailey provided the dissenting vote, Kostka said.

Dailey did not return a phone call seeking comment Tuesday.

The board’s next regular meeting is scheduled for 6 p.m. Sept. 17 at the Kirk Road Trailhead in Austintown. The meeting is open to the public.

Imbrogno said in a phone interview that the terms of his resignation have yet to be determined, and he and the board will continue with discussions until there’s mutual agreement.

“I’m negotiating the terms of the resignation,” he said. “When that is completed and when that happens, I may be able to say more.”

Imbrogno, originally of Clermont, Ky., was hired as the executive director of the MetroParks in October 2007. He replaced Susan Dicken, who had retired.

It is unclear why Imbrogno resigned from the MetroParks before serving two complete years as executive director. He said the announcement was made for “personal reasons” and would not say more.

Kostka said a regularly scheduled board meeting Aug. 17 lasted longer than usual, but it is unclear what was discussed other than “personnel matters.” The board announced the Aug. 31 special meeting after the Aug. 17 meeting.

Kostka added that the executive session of the special meeting lasted about three hours. Again, she could not specify what was discussed.

Asked if his decision stemmed from those meetings or another factor, Imbrogno would not comment.

“The board and I are working out the terms of my departure right now to make it as friendly and easy as possible,” he said.

Before his time with the MetroParks, Imbrogno worked at the Bernheim Forest in Kentucky, a 14,000-acre facility near Louisville, where he held the same position.

Imbrogno was fired for not doing anything and in general ticking everyone off. Not too many fans except for Virginia Dailey. The guy hardly showed up for work and now he wants taxpayer money in the form of a severance package to take back to Kentucky with him.

Suggest removal:

This is a travesty and it will be a long time before you can convince me to vote for any MCP levy, as much as I love our park.
PS Where can I submit my resume, I will do the job for 30% less.
