Public Salaries

An ongoing series about salaries of public workers, from teachers and police to government officials.

BRISTOL, Tenn. — Nearly 400 people are on Bristol, Tennessee’s payroll, providing the city everything from crossing guards and firefighters to judges and directors.

The Bristol Herald Courier obtained the 2018 salaries of city employees through the Freedom of Information Act. As of Feb. 26, the city had eight elected or appointed employees, 51 part-time or temporary employees, and 326 full-time employees.

Part-time employees are limited to 29 hours per week or, in some cases, 960 hours per year. Their annual salaries were estimated by assuming they worked the maximum number of hours for the relevant time period, according to City Attorney Danielle Kiser.

Temporary employees are employed for no more than nine months or 1,500 hours, whichever comes first, she said.

More than 80 percent of full-time employees are male, while 77 percent of all employees are male. Six of the 10 highest-paid employees were male as well.

On average, men employed by the city make 10 percent more than women. There is less than a 7 percent probability the discrepancy is due to chance.

Looking at full-time employees, women make just shy of 4 percent more on average, but with a 26 percent chance the discrepancy is due to chance.

City Manager Bill Sorah is the highest-paid full-time employee with an annual salary of $140,712. That’s around four times higher than the average salary of all full-time employees, $34,873, and close to seven times the lowest full-time employee, $21,091.

Police officers are the most frequently hired part-time employees. Meanwhile, recreation workers are the lowest-paid hourly employees, making around minimum wage. Part-time economic development workers, on the other hand, make almost seven times as much each hour.
