By Paul Gottlieb
Peninsula Daily News

Jefferson Healthcare CEO Mike Glenn is the highest-paid public employee on the North Olympic Peninsula at $225,000 a year.

Second on the Peninsula is Clallam Public Utility District General Manager Doug Nass, who makes $179,004 a year.

The third highest is Forks Community Hospital CEO Bill McMillan, whose $176,010 a year puts him $10 higher than the fourth-highest, Olympic Medical Center CEO Eric Lewis.

The Peninsula Daily News conducted a two-month salary review of the top publicly paid chief administrators on the North Olympic Peninsula.

They oversee budgets for two counties, four cities, three hospital districts, two public utility districts, two transit districts, two ports, nine school districts and Peninsula College.

The lowest paid among them?

Forks Mayor Bryon Monohon, who makes nothing for functioning essentially as city manager.

The Peninsula's three other cities have city managers who oversee City Hall duties.

Here is what we found out about the salaries and compensation packages for the top publicly paid executives in Clallam and Jefferson counties.



Clallam County

Administrator Jim Jones

■   2012 salary: $124,016.

■   2013 salary: $129,981.

■   Percentage increase: 4.8 percent.

■   Compensation package: Includes a $100,000 life insurance policy.

■   2013 budget (operations and capital projects): $78.6 million.

■   Number of full-time-equivalent employees: 381.

Jones received a longevity-related step increase that some other employees also were given and a 2.43 percent cost-of-living increase that all employees received.

“Management jobs in the private sector is where the big money is,” Jones said.

He said his salary is at the lower end of the scale of county administrators who oversee similar-size governments in Jefferson, Cowlitz, Lewis, Grays Harbor, Mason and Island counties.

A scheduled cost-of-living increase for 2012 went toward employees' health insurance.

“It's harder on the lower-paid employees than me because I get paid a lot,” Jones said.

“If I were to complain, that would be just ridiculous. It's not something you do, because you are so much better off than most people. Who would care?”



Jefferson County

Administrator Philip Morley

■   2012 salary: $118,157.

■   2013 salary: $119,339.

■   Percentage increase: 1 percent.

■   Compensation package: No exclusive vehicle, phone, insurance provisions.

■   2013 budget (operations and capital projects): $53.5 million.

■   Full-time-equivalent employees: 269.

Morley's 1 percent salary increase for 2013 was the same increase received by half of unionized staff and all union-exempt employees, he said.

“I'm completely happy with my salary,” Morley said.

“I would say that it's about right in terms of the responsibilities and liabilities of these positions and the extraordinary demands that it places on your personal life.

“Except for when you are out of town, you are on call at any time if an emergency happens,” Morley said. “There are extraordinary demands and high stakes.

“It's both an awesome responsibility and an amazing privilege.”

Morley was the Maple Valley assistant city manager before being hired as Jefferson County administrator in late 2008.



City of Port Angeles

City Manager Dan McKeen

■   2012 salary: $135,000.

■   2013 salary: $137,725.

■   Percentage increase: 2 percent.

■   Compensation package: Includes $375 a month car allowance.

■   2013 budget (operations and capital projects): $124.3 million, which includes operation of electric, water, sewer and solid waste utilities.

■   Number of full-time-equivalent employees: 252.

McKeen, whose salary is paid from the general fund and utilities fund, succeeded Kent Myers, who resigned in May 2012 at an annual salary of $157,000.

McKeen, the city's former fire chief, also did not get the car that Myers was slated to receive as part of his own contract.

McKeen took a car allowance instead of getting the car, which saved the city money, he said.

As fire chief, McKeen earned $112,548 annually before succeeding Myers as interim city manager at $135,000 in mid-2012.

“I feel that the salary that was negotiated is a fair salary for the responsibilities in comparing it with other cities of similar size and responsibilities and budgets,” McKeen said.

Under his contract, he receives the same pay decreases and increases as other city employees, who also received a 2 percent salary increase for 2013.

“One thing I wanted to make sure of is, if other employees received reductions, I received reductions, and if employees received increases, I received increases,” McKeen said.

“I did not want to be protected.”



City of Port Townsend

City Manager David Timmons

■   2012 salary: $122,372.

■   2013 salary: $122,372.

■   Compensation package: Timmons leases a 2008 Ford Explorer from the city for personal and official use for $386 a month.

■   2013 budget (operations and capital projects): $30.3 million.

■   Full-time-equivalent employees: 83.

Timmons, starting his 14th year as city manager, is Port Townsend's first city manager.

Under his contract, his percentage salary increases match those of other city employees'.

Timmons often sees city-manager salaries of $130,000 to $150,000 for cities similar in size to Port Townsend, he said.

“In areas like this, that are economically distressed, you don't see those wages,” he said. “If you want to make more money, you have to leave the community.

“I'm comfortable where [the salary] is for a city of this size.”



City of Sequim

City Manager Steve Burkett

■   2012 salary: $120,000.

■   2013 salary: $121,200.

■   Percentage increase: 1 percent.

■   Compensation package: Includes $400 car allowance.

■   2013 budget (operations and capital projects): $27 million.

■   Number of full-time-equivalent employees: 72

Burkett's salary increase of $100 a month was the same received by other non-union city employees to cover additional health insurance costs, he said.

Burkett believes his salary is fair, he said.

“I've been in the business for 40 years, and I know what the market is out there,” said Burkett, who was hired in 2009.

“The market for cities of this size on the Olympic Peninsula is about in the area what I am getting paid.”

Burkett's salary is based on a survey of Washington cities of Sequim's size, such as Shelton and Gig Harbor, he said.

“It's been a tough three or four years financially for cities,” Burkett said. “We've all had to make sacrifices.

“We haven't had to put people on furlough or cut salaries, but we did have to begin contributing to health care costs. Those are very expensive and getting more expensive.”

Burkett said his compensation and/or salary may increase later this year after scoring 8.7 out of 10 in a Feb. 9 performance review by the City Council.



City of Forks

Mayor Bryon Monohon

■   No salary.

■   2013 budget (operations and capital projects): $4 million.

■   Full-time equivalent employees: 28.

Forks has a strong-mayor form of government: The mayor is elected every four years by Forks voters and serves as city administrator.

The top salaried city employee is Public Works Director Dave Zellar, who makes $79,192 a year.

The last pay hike, on Feb. 25, was a 1 percent increase and was for all non-managerial city employees.

Monohon works Wednesday through Sunday as a mental health case manager for West End Outreach Services and about 25 hours a week on city business, he said.

“I am responsible for City Hall,” Monohon said. “I'm in and out of there several times a day.”

The mayor's position draws no salary or compensation, not even the $1 that has been an inside-Forks joke for decades, City Planner-Attorney Rod Fleck said.

State statute allows for a minimal payment for the position, but the City Council has never approved it.

“It's a myth,” Fleck said, adding he first heard it more than 18 years ago when he arrived in Forks.

“It's kind of this running joke,” he added.



Jefferson Healthcare

Jefferson County Public Hospital District No. 2

CEO Mike Glenn

■   2012 salary: $225,000.

■   2013 salary: $225,000.

■   Compensation package: No exclusive vehicle, phone, insurance provisions.

■   2013 budget (operations and capital projects): $75.4 million.

■   Full-time-equivalent employees: 368.

■   Number of beds: 25.

Jefferson County Hospital District No. 2's Jefferson Healthcare is a critical access hospital and, in terms of revenue, is the 10th largest public hospital district in Washington.

As such, it is reimbursed for the cost of delivering services to Medicare and Medicaid patients, according to the Washington State Hospital Association.

CEO Mike Glenn, hired in 2010, is the former CEO of Olympic Medical Center in Port Angeles and came to Jefferson Healthcare by way of Valley Medical Center in Renton.

Glenn did not return calls for comment for this story.

Glenn's predecessor, Vic Dirksen, earned $140,000 annually and rejected salary increases, hospital Commissioner Marc Mauney said.

Mauney said the board conducted a market survey of CEOs of similar-size hospitals before offering Glenn the job.

“We were toward the middle of the road” in salaries, Mauney said.



Forks Community Hospital

Clallam County Public Hospital District No. 1

CEO Bill McMillan

■   2012 salary: (Former CEO Camille Scott, less than full-time): $164,320.

■   2013 salary: (McMillan, full-time): $176,010 ($500 monthly car allowance is built into salary).

■   Compensation package: No exclusive vehicle, phone, insurance provisions.

■   2013 budget (operations and capital projects): $22.4 million.

■   Number of full-time-equivalent employees: 198.

■   Number of beds: 20.

Clallam County Hospital District No. 1 serves Forks, Clallam Bay, Sekiu, Neah Bay and western Jefferson County.

“The compensation is commensurate with the duties of the position and not dissimilar from other hospitals,” McMillan said.

Forks Community Hospital is a critical access hospital, a designation applied to hospitals of no more than 25 beds and that are at least 30 miles from the nearest hospital.

Unlike acute care hospitals such as OMC, critical access hospitals are fully reimbursed for the cost of delivering services to Medicare and Medicaid patients, Washington State Hospital Association spokeswoman Mary Kay Clunies-Ross said.



Olympic Medical Center

Clallam County Public Hospital District No. 2

CEO Eric Lewis

■   2012 (ending) salary: $176,000.

■   2013 salary: $176,000.

■   Compensation package: No exclusive vehicle, phone, insurance provisions.

■   2013 budget (operations and capital projects): $154.2 million.

■   Number of full-time-equivalent employees: 917.

■   Number of beds: 80.

Acute care hospitals such as OMC are reimbursed an average of 85 percent of the cost of delivering services to Medicare and Medicaid patients, said Washington State Hospital Association spokeswoman Mary Kay Clunies-Ross.

The hospital district also operates Olympic Medical Physicians, Olympic Medical Cancer Center and Olympic Medical Home Health, which also serves West Jefferson County.

The district is the fourth largest public hospital district in terms of revenue in the state of Washington, according to the Association of Washington Public Hospital Districts.

“I am not complaining about what I make, but I am at the low end of the [salary] range,” said Lewis, the hospital district's former chief financial officer.

“I am obviously well compensated.”

Hospital commissioners gave Lewis a $16,000 pay hike — a 10 percent increase — in June 2012, his first raise since being promoted to interim CEO in December 2006 and permanent CEO in January 2007.

“There were some people that were incensed with him getting a raise,” Commissioner John Miles recalled.

“I think he deserved a bigger raise, but we were sensitive to what people might think.”



Clallam County Public Utility District

General Manager Doug Nass

■   2012 salary: $179,004.

■   2013 salary: $179,004.

■   Compensation package: Includes $500 a month car allowance, $90 a month phone allowance.

■   2013 budget (operations and capital projects): $57.4 million.

■   Full-time-equivalent employees: 132.

■   Customers (meters): 30,000.

Doug Nass' last raise was in 2011.

Nass' salary is based on comparisons with other PUD managers who run similar size PUDs in the region, including Cowlitz, Benton, Lewis and Mason counties, PUD Commissioner Hugh Haffner said.

“We do a lot of analysis of other salaries,” he said. “We hire regional people.”

Nass, who holds an engineering degree and a master's degree in management, said his salary is in the mid- to high-range of PUD general managers.

His compensation includes $1,000 monthly in deferred compensation.

“I'm right in the ballpark,” he said. “That's why I say it's fair.”

All the PUD's professional employees are sought regionally, and their salaries are determined by comparisons with salaries for similar positions, Nass said.



Jefferson County Public Utility District

Manager Jim Parker

■   2012 salary: $98,859.

■   2013 salary: $98,859.

■   Compensation package: No exclusive vehicle, phone, insurance provisions.

■   2013 budget (operations and capital projects): $134 million, $109 million of which will be used to purchase Puget Sound Energy facilities.

■   Full-time-equivalent employees: 15.

■   Customers (meters): 4,000.

Parker said his salary may increase after the PUD begins providing electrical service April 1 after purchasing infrastructure from Puget Sound Energy, or PSE.

The district will add 19,000 electric customers to the 4,000 water customers it now serves, and probably will add 15 to 20 more employees.

The PUD is paying PSE $103 million for the facilities, then another $4 million-$5.5 million for improvements made over the last three years.

Parker's last raise was two years ago.

“I think they pay me plenty,” he said.

Parker “is underpaid” when his salary is compared to PUDs of similar size, PUD Board President Barney Burke said.

The PUD will review Parker's salary this spring, he added.



Port of Port Angeles

Executive Director Jeff Robb

■   2012: $123,165.

■   2013: $138,000.

■   Percentage increase: 12 percent.

■   Compensation package: $400 a month car allowance, full reimbursement for smartphone-related equipment and charges.

■   2013 budget (operations and capital projects): $17.4 million.

■   Number of full-time-equivalent employees: 37.

“When you have 75 ports to compete with [in the state of Washington], you will find I fit right to the median on my current salary,” Robb said.

Robb, a Sequim native, was first hired by the port in July 1984. He was the port's director of aviation and marinas when he was named port director in 2009.

Robb is under a three-year contract that can be annually adjusted by the port commissioners.

Port Commissioner John Calhoun said Robb's pay is in line with port directors who have similar responsibilities.

“It was a substantial raise, and the commission recognizes that,” Calhoun said.



Port of Port Townsend

Executive Director Larry Crockett

■   2012 salary: $110,387.

■   2013 salary: $112,595.

■   Percentage increase: 2 percent.

■   Compensation package: No exclusive vehicle, phone, insurance provisions.

■   2013 budget (operations and capital projects): $7.9 million.

■   Full-time-equivalent employees: 28.

Crockett, who had the same salary in 2010 and 2011, is a retired Army colonel with 30 years of service.

He voluntarily did not take raises in 2011 and 2012 and also has turned down at least two other raises during his 14-year tenure as the port's executive director, he said.

His salary would be $10,000 or $12,000 more if he had taken the raises, he said.

“Personally, I'm well off,” he said.

“You always want to be considered [to be] at least as good as your peers, and of course, I think I am, but again, [the salary] really doesn't bother me because of my circumstances with the other retirement.”



Clallam Transit

General Manager Terry Weed

■   2012 salary: $104,030.

■   2013 salary: $104,030.

■   Compensation package: $400 a month car allowance.

■   2013 budget (operations and capital projects): $13.4 million.

■   Number of full-time-equivalent employees: 85-90.

Weed, in his 33rd year as a Clallam Transit employee — he began as a dispatcher-supervisor — is retiring later this summer after being general manager for eight years.

The salary range for his successor is expected to be $85,000-$104,000.

Weed's last raise was in 2010.

Clallam Transit buses had a 2012 fixed-route ridership of 1 million passenger trips, including paratransit service, and spend 60,000 fixed-route hours a year on the road.

Weed said he believes his salary is fair.

“We have done some work in comparing management salaries in the transit industry around the state,” he said.

“Generally, those wages are driven by budget, employee count, and to a lesser extent, hours of service on the road.”



Jefferson Transit

General Manager Tammi Rubert

■   2012 salary: $72,348.

■   2013 salary: $72,348.

■   Compensation package: No exclusive vehicle, phone, insurance provisions.

■   2013 budget (operations and capital projects): $6 million.

■   Number of full-time-equivalent employees: 44.

A former Jefferson County Superior Court clerk and court facilitator, Rubert began at Jefferson Transit as a driver in 2005 and was operations manager when she was hired as general manager in August 2011.

Jefferson Transit buses had a 2012 fixed-route ridership of 266,165 passenger trips and spend 16,476 fixed-route hours a year on the road.

Her salary is “fair for the budget that we have and the revenue we have in our community,” Rubert said.

“I feel like it's comparable to what Jefferson Transit can afford.”



Peninsula College

President Luke Robins

■   2011-2012 salary (Thomas Keegan): $204,434.

■   2012-2013 salary (Luke Robins): $175,000.

■   Full-time employees: 153, not including 300 to 400 who are part-time.

■   Full-time equivalent students: 2,507.

■   2011-2013 budget (operations and capital): $19.7 million.

Peninsula College is based in Port Angeles and also has extension sites in Forks, Port Townsend and Port Hadlock.

Robins succeeded Thomas Keegan, who headed the college for 10 years and who left to head his alma mater, Skagit Valley College in Mount Vernon.

“Salaries run from probably a high of around $210,00 to a low of $135,000 to $140,000, so I'm roughly in the middle,” said Robins, the former chancellor of Louisiana Delta Community College in Monroe, La.

Robins' contract, which runs through June 2015, has no automatic longevity-related step increases, and he is evaluated by the college board of trustees every year for possible pay increases.

Robins said he earned about $150,000 at his prior job as chancellor of Louisiana Delta Community College, but also received a housing a car allowance, which he doesn't get running Peninsula College.

His salary “is equitable and within the range of community colleges in the state,” he said.

“It comes out about where it needs to.”



Port Angeles School District

Superintendent Jane Pryne

■   2011-2012 school year: $138,659.

■   2012-2013 school year: $141,432.

■   Percentage increase: 2 percent.

■   Compensation package: Includes $550 monthly car allowance.

■   2012-2013 budget (operations and capital projects): $37.9 million.

■   Number of full-time-equivalent employees: 357.

■   Number of full-time-equivalent students: 3,628.

Pryne received a longevity-related step increase for the 2012-2013 school year.

“There are a lot of responsibilities for this job,” Pryne said, adding her salary is average among school districts the size of Port Angeles.

District facilities include a skills center attended by students from five school districts including Port Townsend, and a cosmetology school in Port Hadlock.

“We have an almost $37 million [operations] budget, and we have to be fiscally responsible.

“We are a public entity.”

Pryne has been the Port Angeles school superintendent since July 2009.



Sequim School District

Superintendent Kelly Shea

■   2011-2012 salary (Bill Bentley): $125,510.

■   2012-2013 salary (Kelly Shea): $130,000.

■   Percentage increase: 3.6 percent.

■   Compensation package: No exclusive vehicle, phone, insurance provisions.

■   2012-2013 budget (operations and capital projects): $26.2 million.

■   Number of full-time-equivalent employees: 268.

■   Number of full-time-equivalent students: 2,786.

Shea's predecessor, Bill Bentley, received a $300 monthly car allowance and full health insurance coverage of $763 a month for him and his dependents in 2011-2012.

Shea's contract is straight salary-based, without the perks of his predecessor.

“In my view, my [total] compensation is less than his even though my base is higher,” Shea said.

“It's the contract they offered, and I wanted to be superintendent.

“In terms of a school district this size and with this budget, it's certainly toward the top.”



Port Townsend School District

Superintendent David Engle

■   2011-2012 salary: (Gene Laes, 0.8 full-time-equivalent): $96,000.

■   2012-2013 salary: (David Engle, full-time): $125,000.

■   Compensation package: No exclusive vehicle, phone, insurance provisions.

■   2012-2013 budget (operations and capital projects): $13.8 million.

■   Number of full-time-equivalent employees: 134.

■   Number of full-time equivalent students: 1,214.

Engle said his salary is “pretty close” to that of Laes' if Laes had been full-time.

Engle said he did not take the job for the money.

“I came here for the quality of life and the challenge and particularly the nature of the community,” he said.

“It's an interesting, kind of diverse maritime community and has lots of highly educated people, people that think differently and are open to new ideas,” Engle said.

Engle is the former superintendent of the North Platte, Neb., school district.



Chimacum School District

Superintendent Craig Downs

■   2011-2012 school year: $118,956.

■   2012-2013 school year: $119,562.

■   Percentage increase: 0.5 percent.

■   Compensation package: No exclusive vehicle, phone, insurance provisions.

■   2012-2013 budget (operations and capital projects): $13.1 million.

■   Number of full-time-equivalent employees: 109.

■   Number of full-time equivalent students: 1,044.

Downs made $123,000 in the 2010-2011 school year, but he and other administrators took voluntary pay cuts of 3 percent to 4 percent for 2011-2012, while the teaching staff lost three staff development days, he said.

The Chimacum School District had to make cuts greater than the 1.9 percent that affected districts statewide.

Downs was assistant superintendent of Woodland School District north of Vancouver, Wash., before taking the Chimacum job.

The larger the school district, the larger the superintendent's paycheck — and the greater the responsibility, Downs said.

Quillayute Valley School District

Superintendent Diana Reaume

■   2011-2012 salary: $114,840.

■   2012-2013 salary: $114,840.

■   Compensation package: No exclusive vehicle, phone, insurance provisions.

■   2012-2013 budget (operations and capital projects): $23.5 million.

■   Number of full-time-equivalent employees: 157.

■   Number of full-time-equivalent students: 3,230.

Diana Reaume, the Forks-area school district's former director of student services who succeeded Frank Walter, is in her sixth year as school superintendent.

She has not had a raise since 2008 and does not receive longevity-related step increases, she said.

When she was hired in 2007 at $110,000 a year, her salary was in the middle of fair market value for districts of similar size.

“Superintendents in some districts my size are making higher salaries than what I came in at,” Reaume said.

Her responsibilities include what she said was the largest grades 9-12 online instruction program in Washington.



Crescent School District

Superintendent Clayton Mork

■   2011-2012 school year (Tom Anderson): $95,520.

■   2012-2013 school year (Clayton Mork): $110,000.

■   Compensation package: No exclusive vehicle, phone, insurance provisions.

■   2012-2013 budget (operations and capital projects): $4.4 million.

■   Number of full-time-equivalent employees: 36.

■   Number of full-time equivalent students: 319.

The Crescent School Board hired a consultant who helped determine a salary range that was competitive with other districts of similar size, School Board President Susan Hopper said.

Tom Anderson, Mork's predecessor, refused raises during a time the district was cutting the budget.

Mork also serves as principal of the school district's elementary, middle and high school, and oversees the Olympic Peninsula HomeConnection program, a home-school-related teaching partnership with parents from Clallam, Jefferson and Kitsap counties.

He said he is satisfied with his salary.

“I don't think if someone was in the business for the money that they would want to be superintendent, because it's not for everybody, and one really has to enjoy the work.”

Cape Flattery
School District

Superintendent Kandy Ritter

■   2011-2012 school year: $110,000.

■   2012-2013 school year: $107,910.

■   Compensation package: No exclusive vehicle, phone, insurance provisions.

■   2012-2013 budget (operations and capital projects): $7.9 million.

■   Number of full-time-equivalent employees: 82.

■   Number of full-time equivalent students: 439.

Ritter's salary decreased 1.9 percent as part of statewide salary cuts for school employees, administrators included.

Her salary, which was $98,000 for the 2009 and 2010 school years, is “very fair for the population of the district,” she said.

Ritter's responsibilities include oversight of two campuses, each containing elementary, middle and high schools, at Neah Bay and Clallam Bay.

“You are replicating a lot of resources, which increases the size of the budget,” said Ritter, a 30-year resident of Cape Flattery.

She also acts as grant writer, special education director and head of human resources.



Quilcene School District

Superintendent Wally Lis

■   2011-2012 school year: $48,000.

■   2012-2013 school year: $48,000.

■   Compensation package: No exclusive vehicle, phone, insurance provisions.

■   2012-2013 budget (operations and capital projects): $4.5 million.

■   Number of full-time-equivalent employees: 40.

■   Number of full-time equivalent students: 504.



Brinnon School District

Superintendent Wally Lis

■   2011-2012 school year: $44,000.

■   2012-2013 school year: $44,000.

■   Compensation package: No exclusive vehicle, phone, insurance provisions.

■   2012-2013 budget (operations and capital projects): $964,013.

■   Number of full-time-equivalent employees: 9.5.

■   Number of full-time equivalent students: 25.

In heading two school districts, Superintendent Wally Lis oversees two budgets totalling $5.5 million, a total of 529 full-time-equivalent students and 49.5 full-time-equivalent employees.

Lis also serves as principal and directs the special education and career and technology education (CTE) programs at Brinnon and is CTE director at Quilcene.

He receives two separate salaries totalling $92,000 a year and is responsible to two separate school boards.

“Essentially, I have two bosses and they represent the community, and they have specific requirements for their school districts,” Lis said.

“Basically, you're constantly trying to interact with two different communities for their needs, and sometimes there's just not enough to do both to the level that is required.”

Lis' two-year contract has been renewed with his salary yet to be negotiated, though it would be tough to raise administrative pay while the district makes budget cuts.

Asked if he felt his salary was fair, “it is what it is,” Lis said.

“They negotiated in good faith and I signed a contract in good faith.”

The Brinnon and Quilcene communities, which are about 10 miles apart, have indicated they want their school districts not to consolidate, Lis said.
