Original post made by Jim H., Duveneck/St. Francis, on Aug 22, 2012
Of Bay Area Governments, Palo Alto paid the 4th most to retiring employees in 2011. The three governments above them were 1) San Jose, a city over a million people, 2) Santa Clara COUNTY, and 3) Solano COUNTY.
Palo Alto paid $1.6M for unused sick and vacation time. The next closest city was Redwood City at $800K, HALF of what PA paid.
