Top Earners for City Published on Transparency Website
Albuquerque- The city’s website once again has published the list of top earners – this time for the 2011 calendar year. Every year Mayor Richard J. Berry has been in office he has asked city leaders to make this information available as part of his efforts to transform city government into a transparent organization that is accountable to the taxpayers.
"Our bosses are the taxpayers, and it is important that they get a comprehensive look at the salaries of our highest paid employees," said Mayor Berry.
The figures released do not include the value of sick or vacation leave, a take home vehicle, or tuition reimbursement. The full list of top earners and a chart showing percentage of salaries by department can be found on the transparency portal: http://www.cabq.gov/abq-view/where-do-my-taxes-go/top-250-city-employee-earnings
