Who Are The Highest-Paid City of Portland Employees? New Salary Data For 9,000 City Workers

As promised in this week's print edition of WW, here is the compensation information for every city of Portland employee in the 2011 fiscal year.

There are approximately 9,000 names in all; the list is broken up alphabetically. Use the quick links to navigate:

Aaby-Brown | Brown-Doering | Doherty-Greinke | Greisen-Johnson | Johnson-Madison< | Madrigal-Ochs | Ocken-Sahli | Sahnow-Terzo | Sahnow-Terzo | Teske-ZwebenTo search for a specific name, click the icon in the top-right corner of each frame to open the spreadsheets in a new window, then use the Google Docs search bar. (We know, it's not ideal—but it's better than a PDF file. Trust us.)

We went through the list to determine the highest-paid city employees. In all, 599 city workers made at least $100,000 last year, three more than did last year. The median family income for a household of one in Portland, according to city Housing Bureau guidelines, is roughly $50,000.

Nine of the top 20 highest-paid employees are bureau directors. Former Portland Bureau of Transportation Director Sue Keil—now serving as Parks Director—topped the list at $190,000 in base pay.

Five of the top 20 are managers in the Portland Fire Bureau (not counting Chief John Klum, who comes in at No. 12 on the list with $164,000 in gross pay).

Three are members of the Portland Police Bureau, including Chief Mike Reese ($169,000) and the employee who claimed the most overtime, police officer Ronald Hoesly. (As former Oregonian reporter Ryan Frank noted last year in a similar roundup, Hoesly, a motorcycle cop, "rack[ed] up extra time in traffic court, traffic control at parades and on special patrols for drunken drivers and seat belt scofflaws.") Thanks to $70,000 he made in overtime last year, Hoesly was the city's third-best paid employee.

None of the elected City Commissioners cracked the top 100. Mayor Sam Adams, with his $119,000 salary, came in at No. 172.
