The city of Moraine paid 18 employees more than $100,000 last year, according to the I-Team Payroll Project searchable database of public employees.

Moraine’s highest-paid worker was Anthony Trick, former fire chief who retired in February 2016 after decades of service with the city. His $189,679 gross pay was mostly accrued sick and vacation leave, according to city payroll records.

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.

Local governments make payroll with your money, which is why the I-Team has assembled and made available a searchable database of pay for public employees.

1. Anthony Trick, fire chief: $189,679

2. David Hicks, city manager: $148,079

3. Charles Gambill, firefighter: $122,692
