How Does the City Make Payments?
Most goods and services are procured utilizing a purchase order system. Standard City payment terms are net 30 days. The City issues checks weekly, with payments mailed each Friday. The City department acquiring the goods and services must initially authorize payment. To expedite payment, put purchase order numbers on all invoices, shipping tags, and other correspondence relevant to the order. The City pays by invoice, not by statement. As the payer of City obligations, it is our goal to make payments to vendors in a timely and efficient manner.
