The data show that 13 employees of the police and fire departments made more than $100,000 in extra pay during the last fiscal year on top of their salaries. The data do not include the full salaries of Baltimore Housing officials, who are paid partially with federal funds.

The highest-paid employee of the Police Department was Lt. Stephen C. Nalewajko Jr., who made $235,767, while the highest-paid employee of the mayor's office was Kaliope Parthemos, who made $183,085.22 as chief of staff to Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake.

The mayor's gross pay was listed as $165,249.86.

The data do not include school system employees, including CEO Gregory Thornton. He earns $290,000.

In one case, the city's data inaccurately characterized an employee's compensation, according to the City Council president's office. Based on the hourly wage that he receives for part-time work at council meetings, employee Michael Swift's annual compensation was listed at $187,000. Actually, he makes $5,000.
