In a compilation of the top 20 wage earners on the city side of Milford for the year 2012, four are retirees.
At the request of Milford Patch, the Finance Department compiled the list of the top 20 wage earners on the city side of government for the year 2012 last week.
Last year's top earner, Steven Fournier, current assistant mayor and previous deputy police chief of Milford, was not on this year's list. When asked for an explanation, a representative from the Finance Department explained, simply, "Steven Fournier made less money in 2012."
The full list of the top 20 wage earners from the Finance Department also accompany this article as a PDF.
The sums the Finance Department presented for wage owners who have retired do not include pension payments.
