In details published by the Tax Payers' Alliance, Cheshire East council has topped a list of the highest paid members of staff in the north-west, with twenty employees earning over £100,000.
A spokesman at the council said: "CEC, like other authorities, pays the necessary market rate to attract the right people with the required skills and experience to work for the council.
"Following a restructure, senior managers have also taken on much wider responsibilities, while continuing to deliver frontline services and value for money for residents."
Mike Suarez, the currently suspended chief executive, was top earner still employed by the end of the 2016-17 financial year. He received £226,180 — including a salary of £182,353, £156 expenses and an employer pension contribution of £43,730.
Mr Suarez is still employed by CEC following his suspension last April — one month after the TayPayers' Allicance's figures end.
Receiving the highest amount for the financial year 2016-17 was the director of public health, who was made redundant in August 2016. The heath director received compensation of £296,738, in addition to salary earnings of £67,735.
