State Controller releases 2012 Calaveras County Government Compensation

Partial Calaveras County Government wage list:
Behavioral Health Psychiatrist $226,134.00 plus benefits
County Administrative Officer $189,459.00 plus benefits
Chief Assistant CAO $168,096.00 plus benefits

 State Controller John Chiang has updated his public employee compensation website with the latest wage and benefit data for California city and county employees. The site – – offers maps, search functions, and custom report-building tools. It also allows users to download raw data for their own research. This update covers calendar year 2012, the fourth full year of data for city and county employees available on the site.

"Making compensation of public employees transparent provides taxpayers with the ability to be more informed and active in local government decisions," Chiang said. "I'm especially encouraged with the cooperation that cities and counties have provided in helping us make all government more accountable to Californians."

Today's update adds wage and benefit data for 637,435 positions, with more than $38.86 billion in wages paid in 2012.

Since the site's launch in 2010, it has registered more than 6.9 million page views online. The Controller completed an overhaul of the public website in late 2012, adding additional search, browse, and mapping functions.

Special district information will be updated this coming spring, and data from the University of California is expected later in the year. The 2012 figures for State and California State University employees were updated earlier this year.
