Public Payroll: Central Falls lists top salaries

CENTRAL FALLS Police officers and firefighters dominated the top 10 list of municipal wage earners in the city, with overtime and retirement packages driving up their gross pay.

For the school district, the top wage earner was the assistant superintendent of schools, Ewa Pytowska, who has worked in Central Falls for 11 years. Pytowska, who is currently on medical leave, grossed $101,853.92 in 2006.

Pytowskas pay was followed by Paulo J. Silva, the assistant principal of Calcutt Middle School, who grossed $99,300.50. Silva will retire in June.

Gaouette said that Silvas salary, set at $91,686, was augmented by a reimbursement of between $6,000 and $7,000 for health benefits that he gets through his wifes plan, and longevity pay. She said the same was the case of Gerry Manning, who at the time was an assistant principal at Central Falls High School and grossed $96,973.19 to come in number four on the list. Mannings base pay was set at $91,730 and the rest came from reimbursements for health benefits, she said.

The Journals compilation looked at the total gross pay, meaning the total amount paid to the employee before taxes are taken out. It does not include the cost of benefits, but it does include base salary or wages and other extras such as overtime, stipends and severance packages.

Number seven on the school employee list, Calcutt Middle School gym teacher Anthony Ficocelli, who grossed $95,526.89, drew attention to what school officials refer to as overages, the money teachers get when they have more students in their class than allowed by contract.

Supt. of Schools Frances Gallo said that Ficocellis salary of $66,744 was augmented by $28,000 of overage costs. He also received a stipend for his work as an assistant football coach.

Gallo said that in 2006-07 the district spent more than $200,000 in overages. This year so far, the school district has spent $60,000.
