Village Manager Top Earner in Pelham Manor

PELHAM MANOR, N.Y. – The Village Manager of Pelham Manor wears many hats, and each one comes with a pay check.

John Pierpont is the highest paid employee in the village, earning $227,062. The income includes a salary for serving as village manager, village clerk, building inspector, village treasurer, Department of Public Works superintendent and registrar of vital statistics. Pierpont said his salary for village manager alone is $151,599.

Fire Chief Joseph Ruggiero comes in second on the list with a salary of $194,600. His salary covers his duties as fire chief, DPW mechanic and DPW record keeper.

The remainder of the top ten highest paid employees comes from the Pelham Manor Police Department. Pierpont said that the police department has an agreement that determines the pay of its officers.

"For the police officers, it's a collectively bargained agreement that has longevity and overtime in there," Pierpont said.

Police Chief Alfred Mosiello ranks third on the list with a salary of $154,054. Police Lieutenant David Donahue comes in fourth at $128,750.

The final six spots are all occupied by police sergeants. Thomas Atkins, Jeffrey Gaul, David Uyeki and Richard Vesperman each make $112,677.
