This study provides information about department head compensation in 28 of the 35
municipalities in Onondaga County. The study was conducted by the Community
Benchmarks Program (CBP) at The Maxwell School of Syracuse University.

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
