Nearly 60 city and town employees in the Victor Valley made more than $100,000 in 2009, according to the state Controller’s new database on local government compensation.

State Controller John Chiang recently announced new salary and benefits reporting requirements for all California cities and counties on the heels of public outrage over salary scandals among city of Bell employees.

The new online database launched last month, but Apple Valley and Victorville were among 74 cities that failed to file their information on time.

Apple Valley and Victorville officials have since filed the requested data, which includes not only salary information but also hard-to-calculate data on pension contributions, retirement formulas, actual wages paid and health and welfare benefits.

The newly added data shows that 28 employees of Victorville, 15 employees of Hesperia, 12 employees of Apple Valley and four employees of Adelanto made more than $100,000 in 2009.
