City of Lansing - 2016 Payroll
The above 2016 payroll information was requested from the City of Lansing in early March 2017 and delivered in late June. Because it took so long, I was not charged.
As when I got this same information for 2010, the names of undercover police officers were redacted. This time, however, position, bargaining unit and hire date were also redacted. No reason given. Also redacted were hire dates for all other police officers, which makes no sense (and may have been a mistake). For any of them who were hired before 2011, I was able to get the hire date from the 2010 file.
The cover letter that came with the file cites 6 passages from state law to justify the redactions.
As with 2010, I was given hourly rate for everyone, but in 2010 it was rounded off to 2 decimal positions. This time, it has as many as 5 decimal positions. Normally, I would convert an hourly rate to an annual salary by multiplying it by 2080 (52 weeks x 40 hours). I don't know how they would do it.
