CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) - The Tennessee Open Records Law makes the salaries of government employees part of the public record. Friday marks the beginning of a new minimum wage and one day after County Mayor Claude Ramsey announced a pay freeze for county employees. Because of widespread budget challenges, Channel 3 Eyewitness News requested salary information for the City of Chattanooga, Hamilton County, Department of Education employees since those three entities control a large portion of taxpayer-funded salaries. According to simplyhired.com the median income for a citizen in the City of Chattanooga is $33,593. We wanted to know which government employees earn approximately twice that median income. Our list includes those who earn more than $60,000 per year.

CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) - The Tennessee Open Records Law makes the salaries of government employees part of the public record. Friday marks the beginning of a new minimum wage and one day after County Mayor Claude Ramsey announced a pay freeze for county employees. Because of widespread budget challenges, Channel 3 Eyewitness News requested salary information for the City of Chattanooga, Hamilton County, Department of Education employees since those three entities control a large portion of taxpayer-funded salaries. According to simplyhired.com the median income for a citizen in the City of Chattanooga is $33,593. We wanted to know which government employees earn approximately twice that median income. Our list includes those who earn more than $60,000 per year.
