The city’s second highest paid employee last year was Stanley Earley, who left the city in March to take a job with Howard University in Washington, D.C. Earley’s pay included a $130,433 payout through the city’s “executive savings plan.”

Earley also received $8,729 for unused vacation, which employees can cash out upon separation. This is less than police Maj. David Wolford, who cashed out $17,214 in unused vacation pay and $29,450 in sick leave; or police Lt. Kenneth Beall who cashed out $19,968 in vacation and $21,632 in sick leave.

An I-Team investigation this year found the ability to cash out unused sick and vacation leave is a rare perk in the private sector, though local governments are on the hook for tens of millions of dollars worth of these payments.
