In 2018, the number of employees earning $100,000 or more was 250 compared to 228 in 2017.

The 2018 list includes 124 members of the Chatham-Kent Police Service (126 previous year), 62 members of the Chatham-Kent Fire and Emergency Services (43 previous year), 61 non-union employees (58 previous year), two registered nurses (one previous year) and one chief operator (PUC) (zero previous year).

"It should be noted," said Cathy Hoffman, General Manager, and Corporate Services/Chief Human Resources Officer, "that the Consumer Price Index has not been applied to the reporting process since its inception in 1996, which would otherwise have put the reporting level at $152,154 in 2018. At this level, Chatham-Kent would have 15 names on the list."

A full list is attached.
