TULSA, Okla. (AP) – The number of Tulsa employees making at least $100,000 annually has grown by 25 percent in the past three years, and those who made six-figure salaries represented about 2 percent of the city's 3,500 full-time workers.

The Tulsa World reports that of 69 employees earning more than $100,000, 54 make more than the mayor, whose salary is set at $105,000.

The median salary among full-time city employees is about $53,000, – equal to the yearly base pay of a city firefighter with about six years' experience.

The city physician, Dr. Phillip R. Berry, was the highest-paid employee with a salary of $191,751.

The city has about 132 fewer full-time employees than it did in 2013.
