CPRA Request City of Redlands Pay

Request filed – Wed 8/25/2010 3:48 PM

Daniel J. McHugh & Sheri A. Sebastian – Redlands City Attorney office

Re: California Public Records Act

I request a complete list of all employees who make over $100,000.00 a year.
This is to include employees that receive a combined pay and benefits package of over $100,000.00 a year.
Similar to what has been previously released on the City of Redlands website “City management compensation and responsibilities” page http://ci.redlands.ca.us/manager/leadercompensation10-11.htm
The data is to include the employee’s name, position, pay, and the total cost of the benefits package.
Please release the requested information in an Excel spreadsheet on a CD?

The HR department should have this information and be able to generate it with a simple query.

Thank you,

The data provided is not complete. It is missing potential buyback and overtime estimates.

Hi, Sheri,

Can you please explain the following discrepancies?

Police Chief $435,364.87 posted on the city of Redlands website
BUEERMANN, JAMES RICHARD $368,413.04 data you sent

City Manager $341,044.20 posted on the city of Redlands website
MARTINEZ, NABAR ENRIQUE $327,187.97 data you sent

Fire Chief $326,891.88 posted on the city of Redlands website
FRAZIER, JEFF L $327,187.97 data you sent

City Attorney $304,093.60 posted on the city of Redlands website
MCHUGH, DANIEL $295,250.05 data you sent

The total pay for all employees seems to be under reported when compared with what is posted on the website.

According to our Finance Department, “The website information is budgeted figures which include potential buyback estimates. The other figures are from the spreadsheet prepared by our Finance Department and do not include these amounts. They are just basic salary and benefits.” I hope this answers your questions.
