2013 Southold Payrolls

2013SoutholdPAYROLLS

ABOUT
Total payroll $18,089,936
Highest paid $265,970 Police detective
Most overtime pay $38,832 Police sergeant

About

The 15 towns and cities on Long Island employ more than 20,000 full-time, part-time and seasonal workers. Here are their records for employees paid in 2013. Some towns could not provide a base pay for hourly workers. In some of those cases, an hourly pay rate is listed instead. The difference between base pay and total pay can be accounted for by many factors besides overtime, including shift differential, or payouts for unused vacation or sick time. Retiring workers may have received substantial payouts. Not all municipalities reported retirement or termination dates for all employees.

In some cases, a worker’s total pay may be less than the base pay because the worker did not work the whole year, taking an unpaid leave, for example. Some municipalities had names repeated. Unless the worker had the same title in the same department, those repetitions are listed here.

Payroll information was gathered under the state’s Freedom of Information Law by reporters Aisha Al-Muslim, Carl MacGowan, Lauren Harrison, Mackenzie Issler, Mitch Freedman, Nicholas Spangler, Patrick Whittle, Sarah Armaghan, Scott Eidler, Ted Phillips, with additional assistance from Caitlin Rondino and Lauren DelValle.
