Description/Abstract

This study provides information about department head compensation in 28 of the 35

municipalities in Onondaga County. The study was conducted by the Community

Data for this report were primarily collected through surveys distributed via fax to 35

municipalities in Onondaga County during the month of October 2000. Twenty-eight

municipalities returned the survey. The surveys requested information about

compensation and benefits of department heads. Background information about each

municipality was obtained from the League of Women Voters. Population information

was obtained from the Bureau of the Census. Parcel information was obtained from the

Onondaga County Finance Department, Real Property Tax Division. Center Lane

Mileage was obtained from the 1999 Highway Mileage Summary provided by the New

York State Department of Transportation.
