As promised earlier this week, Los Angeles City Controller Wendy Greuel on Friday posted the salaries of nearly all city workers by job category on the Internet.
The move was prompted by public outrage over the exorbitant salaries paid to former city officials in Bell, where the city manager earned $787,637 and the police chief made $457,000.
News of the high salaries has sparked a growing interest among taxpayers to see what their own city employees earn.
"The public's trust has been broken as a result of the scandal in Bell," Greuel said. "This is an important step to provide greater transparency."
The list does not include workers at the Department of Water and Power or the Community Redevelopment Agency because Greuel does not issue those paychecks. Greuel urged those departments to post their salaries.
Greuel said some future adjustments will need to be made to reflect the impact of furloughs on salaries.
