There are some cities that will not layoff anyone. For example look at the number of building inspectors in some cities, now compared to the number during the building boom. Some cities are also extremely top heavy. Creating positions at the top at the expense of the front line employees. It would be interesting to compare the number of supervisors from one city to another, and how many people they are over. Such as West Valley to Salt Lake to Layton.

How about compare what mayors and city councils make from one city to another. What other benefits do they receive, health care, take home car….

HI Dave,
An analysis on that will hopefully be on the horizon in the coming months. Because salary data for cities has not been received for every city yet, it’s difficult to do comparisons when the information isn’t complete. Once we get the information from the remaining cities, we can do more analysis on it. Thanks for commenting!
