The Tacoma News Tribune reports that
745 city employees were in the six-figure club, making $100,000 or more. That's up from 650 in 2009. (This is total gross pay, including overtime.) [Reporter Lewis] Kamb's overview showed highly paid employees benefited more from the city's "Compensation and Classification" review, which resulted in raises for thousands of employees over the past couple years.
Full-time city employees made an average of $74,582 last year. Among larger departments, fire employees took home $96,475, while police employees received $88,680. Lowest paid were library employees at $48,923.
As in Seattle, utilities and law-enforcement employees dominated the list of top-paid employees.
