Payroll Project: Xenia adds more six-figure employees

Local governments make payroll with your money. That’s why the I-Team is using Ohio public records law to assemble and analyze payroll data for governments across our region.

According to those records, the city of Xenia had 11 employees earn six figures in 2015, compared to 7 in 2014. That’s a 57 percent increase.

Meanwhile, the city of 25,911 residents had 172 public servants earning more than $50,000, compared to 165 the year prior.

Here are the five highest-paid city of Xenia employees in 2015:

1. Police Sergeant Gary E. Johnson — $115,872

2. Fire Captain Brian D. Brennaman — $113,904

3. Prosecutor Ronald C. Lewis — $113,790

4. Police Captain Scott J. Anger — $113,486

5. Police Captain David J. Pazynski — $110,525

Last year, the I-Team performed an exhaustive analysis of local payroll and created a searchable database of 2014 pay for governments across the Dayton region, including all employees who made more than $50,000 in gross pay.

Go here for a growing database — currently containing 177,215 names and salaries — of government employees who made more than $50,000 in gross compensation last year and in 2014.
