Camden-Wyoming Sewer Authority releases records on staff pay
By Associated Press

A Delaware water and sewer authority has released public records on the salaries of its employees after a legal fight over whether the utility is a public body.

The News Journal reports the Camden-Wyoming Sewer and Water Authority provided wage and benefit information this week on its 12 full-time employees and two seasonal workers.

Records show the highest-paid employee is an engineer who earned $123,000 in 2011 and bought his own health and retirement benefits. The utility's superintendent was the only salaried employee, earning $85,000. The highest-paid hourly worker was a maintenance foreman earning $21 an hour, totaling $45,000.

Wyoming Treasurer Georgette Williams requested the information as justification for rates charged to customers, which are among the highest in Delaware.

Utility chairman Mark Dyer says nothing was being hidden.
