Madison Borough Council 2022 Payroll Data, Highest Earners

A six-year study of all full and part-time Madison Borough employee gross pay.

The Madison Borough Council has compiled a six-year study of employee gross pay. Excluded from this summary are employees who are no longer with the Borough, as well as many part-time employees, as appropriate.

The below report (linked) listed the annual salaries of Madison Borough Public Employees. Here are some highlights:

  • The highest earner made $204,844.94 in 2022 and worked for the Borough's Police Department
  • Of the top six highest-earning public employees, 5 work for the Borough Police Department

2022 Report

All employees, full and part-time, as appropriate, currently employed by the Borough are detailed in this report. The governing body members receive no compensation for their service to the borough and are therefore not included.

The gross earning amounts reflect the W-2 reported Gross income, and include, in addition to base pay, step increases, longevity increases, overtime pay, standby pay, and special duty pay, as applicable.

The employee names, job titles, and payment statistics are all public information, and readily available from a variety of sources.

Madison Borough has produced two reports.

  • The first report offers the gross pay of the selected employees arranged by department, their job title, and gross pay for tax years 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021, and 2022.
  • The second report offers the same information for the same set of employees, arranged instead in order of gross W-2 pay for the tax year 2022, from the highest-paid employee of that year.

"For your convenience, we have noted where an employee did not work a complete year, received an adjustment to their Job title, duties, and compensation, or where the employee is paid for, in part, by another municipality or the Madison Board of Education. In an effort to reduce the increase of property taxes, Madison is actively pursuing “shared services” agreements with the neighboring municipalities." - Madison Borough Finance Department

Anyone wishing further information about the compensation of any public employee in the State of New Jersey may consider the Asbury Park Press website. They offer access to a complete and easy-to-search database far exceeding the scope of these reports.
