KAMLOOPS - The City of Kamloops payroll has grown.

All B.C. municipalities must release the names and salaries of municipal employees who made more than $75,000 in the previous year, by the end of June.

In Kamloops released its list today and it shows expenses for the 2018 year grew by approximately $1.7 million from the previous year due to one-time payouts relating to retirements and retroactive contract payments.

It's pushed a few people into a new earning bracket. A total of  327 city employees earned over $75,000, while 168 high rollers were earning more than $100,000.  That's an increase of 26 people who earned over $75,000, and an additional three people earning over $100,000.

Being a director of human resources and safety, parks and civic facilities manager, recreation and civic facilities supervisor, engineering manager, and the recreation, social, development and culture manager are all positions that could get you on that list.
