Lakeland Community College Pay and Benefits… decide

We were interested in the compensation packages of the Lakeland Community College’s executive staff, so we filed a records request.  We applaud Mr. Michael Fisher, General Counsel,  for his prompt response and the honesty and transparency he displayed with the taxpayers of Lake County.  Since the taxpayers are “paying the tab”, we will let them decide if the compensation packages are appropriate, and something that they wish to continue to support.

Here is the email received from Mr. Fisher:


On behalf of Lakeland Community College, in response to your public record request, please find attached a spreadsheet with the salary and service information requested by Mr. Massie.  As for benefits received, please find attached two pdf documents – one summarizes the benefits provided to all administrative and staff employees and the other summarizes benefits provided to all faculty.  As a note, Dr. Beverage does receive a slightly altered benefits package:

  • The College ‘picks-up’ the President’s portion of contribution to STRS (14%)
  • The President is entitled to 35 vacation days per year
  • The College will provide a fully equipped Buick LaCrosse or its cost equivalent.  A new automobile shall be provided when the vehicle is three (3) years old or reaches 60,000 miles, whichever is sooner.  Such automobile shall be covered by AAA, maintained and insured by the College, and all expenses for the operation of same shall be paid by the college, except that any personal expenses for personal use outside of the state of Ohio will be paid by the President.

Thank you,


Michael Fisher
General Counsel

If the above email “grinds your gears”, you may want to take a deep breath before you continue reading:

The annual compensation paid to the Executive Board with the employee names removed:             LCC Executive Compensation
Please note that there are three “double dippers”. (they collect their retirement pay plus their salary)

Here is the Faculty Benefit package:   LCC Faculty Benefits

Here is the salary schedule by grade and more benefits:   LCC Additional Employee Benefits

Lets try a little comparison with the average Lake County worker:

1. Number of days worked per year:

The average worker in Lake County will work 260 days per year (5 days a week x 52 weeks per year)

LCC faculty are contracted to work 178 days during the school year and 18 other days during the year for a total of 196 days per year. [196 / 260 = 75.38% of average worker]

2. Number of vacation days:

I will wager that the average worker gets 2, maybe 3 weeks vacation each year.  Total 10 – 15 days

LCC provides 184 hours of vacation time (23 days) and 40 hours of personnel time (5 days) added every July 1st.  Total 28 days

3. Number of sick days:

I will wager that the average worker, if they work for a very generous employer, gets one week of paid sick time.  Total 5 days (maybe)

LCC provides 120 hours of sick time each year.  Total 15 days [120 /8]

4. Medical insurance:

Be sure to look at their 4 health insurance options, 2 have no cost to the employee, and the other two have minimal cost depending on the deductible option selected.

The average Lake County retiree pays more than that to supplement their government supplied Medicare insurance.

5. Other Benefits:

No cost dental insurance, no cost vision insurance, IRS Section 125 plan, no cost life and AD&D insurance, no cost long-term disability, no cost employee assistance program, full waiver of in-county instructional fees, 10% bookstore discounts, and enrollment in the State Teachers Retirement System or School Employee Retirement System.

Faculty members employed as of 8/16/18 got a $1,000 “professional enhancement” stipend, and will get it again on 8/31/19.

Faculty members employed as of August 1, 2020 will receive a one-time bonus equal to 2% of their 2019 – 2020 base salary.  That ranges from $692 to $3,826.

We report – you decide!

  1. There are a variety of casino games on the internet, and a lot of them have “no deposit” bonus game slot machines. The good thing about these no deposit game slot machines is that if you get tired of playing, you can just walk out and leave without having to worry about losing any money! This is a very attractive offer from casinos to players, and since they do not require a deposit they encourage people to play their slots more often, which in turn will increase the amount of money that players win on their machines.
