Department of Buildings inspector John Murphy topped the list of city employees receiving overtime pay in 2014.

He collected $179,099 in after-hours work in the 2014 fiscal year. The 3,347 additional hours of work amounted to more than triple his current $68,609-a-year salary. Thirty-one city workers made more than $100,000 in overtime during the fiscal year. The year before, 20 employees made the list.

Sixteen of the workers this year are part of the New York City Housing Authority. According to Independent Budget Office data cited by the New York Daily News, the city paid $1.43 billion in total overtime, down from $1.46 billion the year before.

Dunphy made the list for several years, but this is his first time with the most overtime. New York City Housing Authority plumber William Naddeo took the top spot during the 2013 fiscal year with $140,654 in extra pay. He received $130,819 in overtime in 2014. [NYDN]Mark Maurer
