Sunday's Sun features the results of a Sun study about Naperville's highest-paid public servants. We used the Freedom of Information Act to ask the city, school districts and park districts for lists of their highest-paid workers, then combined the findings into one list.
In a moment, you'll be able to share your observations. First, here's a couple of thoughts from us:
Why are administrators in Indian Prairie School District 204 paid so much more than their counterparts in Naperville School District 203?
The highest-paid public servants work in schools, not the city. Why is that?
The park district's highest salaries don't even register in the top 20 citywide.
The findings reported in The Sun are simply base salaries. You gotta figure another, what, 20 percent in costs borne by taxpayers for health insurance and other benefits, then add whatever retirement contribution taxpayers are making, not to mention auto allowances, etc.
Now, your turn. What do you think of the salaries paid to public servants in Naperville? What would you change, if you could?
