Among city of Lodi employees, 82 earned more than $100,000 in 2012 — up from 30 in 2009. City officials say the difference is in overtime hours, especially among fire and police employees, which were rare in 2007 and 2008.
“For the city, overtime is cheaper (than hiring more staff),” said Councilwoman JoAnne Mounce. “I know that it probably looks terrible to have that many people making that kind of money, but they’re putting in the hours.”
