I received your request for information about city employees, salaries, titles, etc. for Mesa, Arizona. For salary, are you just looking for the base salary? You were requesting the information within 10 business days but that may not be feasible due to the amount of time involved for this. We have more than 3,200 city employees.

What is the purpose of the request and what organization do you represent?

Hi Kevin,

Thank you for responding to this request! In terms of salary, we'd prefer base yearly salary.
