Earlier this month, the village had something to celebrate: Westfield Memorial Hospital would remain open as a full-service hospital. "Because of the community's outstanding support, the New York State Department of Health worked collaboratively with Westfield Memorial Hospital officials to retain full health care services in this region," the hospital release stated. But Westfield - with a population of under 3,500 - has some high costs that come with its village payroll. Each resident pays $480 toward that amount.
Village population - 3,413 Total number of employees listed - 51
Total salaries - $1,639,155 Top salary - general employee, $59,942
Median village salary - $36,800
