salaries in the city.

Both sentences convey the same meaning and both are correctly written.

For parallelism, you want to either repeat the preposition or only use it once. You will break the parallelism of a sentence if you use it inconsistently. Let me illustrate with a simple example:

Correct: The goal is to eat, to sleep, and to be happy.

Correct: The goal is to eat, sleep, and be happy.

Incorrect: The goal is to eat, sleep, and to be happy.

Incorrect: The goal is to eat, to sleep, and be happy.

Does this help?

Let me know if I can clarify further.
