Salary Spotlight looks at City of Charleston employee pay
Led by Charleston Mayor Joe Riley, 10 city of Charleston employees make $100,000 or more, according to The Post and Courier’s searchable Salary Spotlight tool.
The longtime mayor makes about $14,000 more than North Charleston Mayor Keith Summey.
Nearly 290 employees make more than $50,000, according to the city’s records.
Salary Spotlight is an ongoing project of The Post and Courier to look at government employee pay. State law requires agencies to disclose salaries of employees who make more than $50,000.
The data compiled by The Post and Courier does not include benefits and bonuses, which can significantly increase an employee’s pay.
The Salary Spotlight tool currently includes pay for all state employees and will add other government agencies in the future. Visit www.postandcourier.com/salary to search for employees.
