Guidelines for Adding or Deleting Payroll Deductions

Additions or deletions from the list of payroll deductions shall be approved by the City Manager.  There is an administrative burden and cost associated with accounting for payroll deductions.  Payroll deductions are not intended to provide banking services for employees.  Before approving or deleting a payroll deduction, the City Manager will consider and weigh several factors, including:

  • The value and relationship of the particular deduction to the City,
  • Whether the deduction is a benefit that the City should be involved in,
  • The value of the particular deduction to the employees,
  • The number of employees that are likely to use the deduction,
  • Whether or not adequate deductions for desired services are already available to employees.

Upon approval of a new payroll deduction, at least 5 employees shall sign up to participate initially, and after one year, it is expected that at least 5% of full-time employees are participating.

The City Manager may delete a deduction at any time.

Automatic Deposit of Pay Check

All regular employees are required to have their entire paycheck automatically deposited into no more than two financial institutions by completing a "Direct Payroll Deposit Authorization Agreement" available at the Human Resources Division.
