Arlington sent me an excel file that would have been hard for me to upload, so I printed out and scanned the pages. In the response e-mail (see below), with the excel file, the following paragraph explained the excel file pages.
"To help you understand the information please note the following items. The information is grouped by department. Pay level is the position assignment on the City of Arlington classification and pay plan and what step they are at. Then the employees name, employee number and title are listed. Employee's salaries may change during the year so in the next column you will see when that occurs, and the last column is their salary at the beginning of 2003 and if there was a change then that change is listed as well."
