  • The Bee asked central San Joaquin Valley cities and counties for full-time employee gross pay in calendar 2010.
  • A few cities and counties have withheld the names of some employees, citing potential privacy interests that outweigh the public interest in disclosure. These names are marked [Withheld by agency].
  • In most cases pay figures include overtime, vacation payouts and vehicle or uniform allowances, but each agency tallies these figures differently. Where details are available, we have noted what is included.
  • Some part-time employees may be included if they were not identified as such. We have eliminated any worker who earned less than $17,000 in 2010. In most cities this includes council members, who typically receive small stipends.
  • Some salary figures may be unduly low because worker was employed for only part of 2010.
  • You may search employee pay records at all state agencies, including the California State University system, at the Sacramento Bee's state pay database. The Contra Costa Times also maintains a database of Bay Area public employee pay.
