We have had many readers ask for information on Dare County public employee salaries, benefits, etc.
This, of course, is public information and readily available to anyone who contacts the Dare County Human Resources Office and makes a request.
Currently, Dare County employs approximately 740 employees.
Listed below are current salaries for the top 5% of those positions.
Also, shown is information relative to employee benefits as obtained from the Dare County website.
Lastly, are adjustments in employee benefits, made by the Dare County Board of Commissioners for the current budget year. Whether those reduced benefits will be reinstated in the coming budget year is not known at this time.
Readers of this data should keep in mind that salary ranges for the listed positions were not obtained by EOD; although we believe most of these supervisory personnel are at or near the top of their respective pay grades.
For the record, the UNC School of Government does an annual survey of all 100 counties each year, asking for complete data on employee salaries and benefits. Dare County was one of 4 in the state who did not complete the survey for the year 2010. Information on other counties can be seen here.
