Overtime pay gave nearly two hundred city employees a salary bonanza in the last fiscal year.
Most of these workers — spanning a range of city agencies — were able to double their earnings with the extra hours, according to the latest data.
All told, the city shelled out $1.7 billion just in overtime pay to 167,851 workers — and 195 actually doubled their salary, according to the numbers compiled by the Empire Center.
Most of those — 90 — were in the Department of Transportation, 35 at the Department of Correction and 26 in the FDNY.
Of the top five overtime earners — including many who have have been pulling down big bucks for years — four work for DOT and one for the FDNY.
DOT employee David Russell, a highway repair supervisor, scored the most overtime — $177,630. That raised his total pay to $274,352 for fiscal year 2015, which ended June 30.
Right behind him was FDNY marine engineer Frederick Domini, who earned $153,787 in OT and $262,926 in total pay.
DOT bricklayer Edward Alfano laid down $146,118 in OT, for $239,462 total pay,
