PublicSource wants you to know how your tax dollars are being spent. We believe it’s important to make the salaries of city, county and state employees easy for you to find because there are taxpayer dollars at stake.

PublicSource received 2015 salary data from the City of Pittsburgh through a Right-to-Know Law request. Check out the full salary data from 2014 and 2015 here.

The city’s highest-paid employees in 2015 were all in the Public Safety Department, due to large amounts of overtime.

Remember as you look at the salaries that some may seem lower than private-sector jobs, but public employees receive generous benefits and pensions.

Explore the city data and let us know if you find something we should report on.
