Study Shows Payment of County Employees

A recent study done by an Albany think tank, the Empire center, showed that Rockland was in the top five counties in New York with highest paid government employees, spending an average of $61,689 on each county worker. The data was compiled over a couple of years, includes overtime and unused sick days and found that Ramapo employees are the highest paid in the county, topping the list with an average of $72,264 per person a year, with town police officers making $164,847 a year. Clarkstown followed closely in second for New York. Ramapo Supervisor Christopher St.Lawrence stated that the town has attempted to keep labor costs down by controlling the amount of employees, and he believes each worker is paid fairly.
