2011 compensation for Chief Price: $435,422. That’s quite a leap from the $208,000 mentioned in this article. Here is the link: Web Link
If you scroll across the letters at the top of the columns you will see a description of what each column represents. “ER” represents taxpayer contributions to the employee’s pension plan. In 2011 taxpayers contributed $149,475 to the Chiefs retirement plan. It appears that for every dollar of Base Salary earned taxpayers are paying an additional 75 cents plus toward pensions.
“MDV” represents the cost of health care: medical, dental, vision. The CalPERS Cadillac health care plan, for a family, was about $17,000 per year in 2011. The San Ramon Fire Protection District must offer the “Bentley” plan that comes with concierge services (including front of line privileges for all doctor visits). Many in this department are receiving medical benefits in excess of 30K annually.
Some employees are earning more in overtime pay than regular base pay. This has much to do with very generous OT policies that expand the traditional definition of what OT actually represents. See employees earning more OT than salary: Web Link
While I’m not sure who is charged with watching the store it appears that the tax dollars are going out the back door. These compensation numbers are ludicrous.
