Here's YTD look at county pay adjustments

By Todd Franko (Contact)

Published April 8, 2011

Untitled document

I promised after last Sunday's column on county pay raises that I would post the year-to-date spreadsheets of the county pay adjustments.

Here, now, are the sheets:

December pay adjustments

Jan/Feb pay adjustments

March pay adjustments

As these are just raw data entered from county forms, in some limited situations, there are settlements or other actions affecting the numbers beyond just pay adjustments.

Example: In March, an employee in the engineer's department, James Polito, shows a 23 percent pay hike. This was actually a lump sum payout due to the end of his employment with the county.

Please email me if other such examples exist that deserve clarification.

Why not add another column with the salaries adjusted because the County picks up there share of Social Security.
Or just add 13 to 15 % onto the wages reported.

I must say it again, as I commented before...When the wages of public servants become greater than the wages of those they serve and those public servants begin to talk down to citizens and taxpayers as if they are actually the servants, then it is time to reconsider the program.

This guy Franko hates government workers. Ask him to make a column on these spreadsheets to show how long these individuals worked in theses positions. A lot of these employees started at the bottom and have gotten to these salaries over time. Years to be exact! Or ask him to compare salaries of government workers across the country. Do you now what prosecutors are being paid outside of Mahoning County, or Ohio for that Matter???

Attaboy Mr. Franko; good job. Publish what all of our public employees are receiving. Police, fire, & teachers, too. Show their retirement pays and at what age - it's all taxpayer money. Explains why the state & local government is bankrupt, why our taxes are so high, and why SB5 is needed.

I never said that you were not underpaid and overworked. Are you saying because you are that everyone else should be as well??? Are you saying that "all" government workers are overpaid?

All I was saying is that these are salaries after a period of time. No one is coming in the door making these numbers. Most of these workers are close to putting in their 30 years at a few of these agencies. What did they make when they were first hired? And if these are the number they make in time, then someone hand me an application.

If the people believe that these salaries are to high, then lets make them start at the top. Governor and his office first until you get to the lowest man on the list. When you attack the unions, you are attacking the lowest people on the list first. 20k or better. Its the governor and his staff that came in and made more money then the job was paying previous to his election. 100k or better........

People believe what you will, but taxes wont be lowered because of SB5, you wont see any extra money in your check, and government workers pay taxes just like everybody else. And by the look at these numbers they pay much more.

thewayiseeit mentions most of these people have been there for 30yrs,if that is the case with the golden pensions they will be retiring soon and the taxpayers will just pay them to stay at home now, while they goto work for another 10 to 15yrs to pay for all this. It gets worse the Ohio state patrol retires after only 20yrs. Then the fire, police and teachers try and figures out a way to double dip. I know of a aust.fireman that will retire soon! But stay working for more 3 more years while he gets paid, his retirement checks go into a separate account that he will take lump sum in 3yrs. Anyway you look at it, the public unions have done all this to allow the public employees to pilage the taxpayers one last time before they retire. Kasik is atleast trying to slow this mess down. This is all stealing from the taxpayers. Principals for every grade at fitch, Sheriff Welington double dipping, DR Wendy Webb 111,000 lump sum sick time check, Ytown Police chief getting 600,000 from the DROP program while he decides whether he wants to continue to work? This is all theivery from the Taxpayers. People wake up and quit voting to support all this via all the levys! Why should a public employee get 2 to 5 times the retirement pay of a private employee who works 10-15yrs longer. People wake up!
