Number of top earners grows

In the last four years, the number of Newton employees who took home annual paychecks north of $100,000 climbed from 185 to 199 — an 8 percent increase — and total pay for those high earners has ballooned by $2.7 million.

During that time, the average paycheck for six-digit earners jumped from $115,965 in 2009 to $121,569 last year, according to payroll records released by the city this month.
