“The town paid out little in overtime last year, bucking a trend that saw some local municipalities pay out thousands in extra pay that in some cases more than doubled an employee’s base salary.
The town’s top earner for 2022 was building inspector Dale Warner, who earned a gross salary of $72,376, just under $3,000 more than his base pay of $69,870, according to records obtained through a Freedom of Information Law request.
The second-highest earner in town was Jeffrey Iveson, the town’s deputy highway superintendent, who brought home $66,379 in gross pay, which is $6,000 more than his base salary of $60,112. Highway Supervisor William Reed was the third-highest earner, bringing home $58,579, just $2 more than his base pay.
Supervisor William Wenzel said overtime typically isn’t an issue for the small rural town, noting the highway workers usually receive the most in extra pay due to plowing in the winter.”
