I don't want to appear anti-employee, as I'm quite the opposite, so I'll let this payroll speak for itself. I will say this; ten Water/Sewer Technicians at this payscale for a district that has no actual treatment plant (contracts with King County for treatment services), is pretty astounding. A Finance Manager (female) making less than a (non-college degree) Water/Sewer Technician (male) is pretty hard to believe also. Nevertheless, this is where your money is going to serve less than 4000 customers.
