All data was obtained from each political entity and entered verbatim into this site, thus any errors in the data are due to mistaken reporting on the part of the political entities in question.
Some jurisdictions have failed to report employees names along with salary data—in these cases, we assigned a number to each employee and included the other relevant information.
Local government jurisdictions in Nevada do not maintain payroll records in a uniform fashion. As such, most jurisdictions have reported their data in a unique format. In some cases, jurisdictions are unable to report the cost of providing employee benefits because they do not maintain that information in their database. Employee benefits can include health insurance, life insurance and employer-paid retirement contributions. In the instances where the cost of employee benefits is unavailable, only partially available, or where salary information is reported in a substantially different fashion, TransparentNevada.com has included a note indicating so.
The “Overtime” column includes overtime compensation as well as call back pay. The column ‘Total Cost to Taxpayers’ includes base salary, overtime, call back, premium pays, allowances, sell backs and separation pay. Many of these categories are not visible on the TransparentNevada.com website, but can be provided upon request.
The 'Total Cost to Taxpayers" column underestimates the cost of every county employee, as it does not factor in such additional costs as the administrative cost of processing the paperwork necessary to keep that person employed, the cost taken on in processing that person’s checks through payroll, depreciation of public sector assets, such as vehicles, that may be used by the employee, and so forth.
Multiple counties requested that TransparentNevada.com pay fees ranging up to $3,000 for contract and salary data. However, TransparentNevada.com is currently only able to display data which can be provided for free or at nominal cost.
