[HISTORY: Adopted by the Mayor and Council of the Borough of Palmyra 3-20-1957 (Ch. 61 of the 1971 Code). Amendments noted where applicable.]
The salaries and compensation of all officers and employees of the Borough of Palmyra shall be as set forth in the Annual Salary Ordinance. A copy of the current Salary Ordinance shall be kept on file by the Borough Clerk for the examination and inspection of the public.
Immediately after the adoption of this chapter and at the first meeting of the Borough Council in January of each year, there shall be approved an account to be designated as "Borough of Palmyra Payroll Account." From time to time the Borough Collector-Treasurer, upon receipt of a warrant for the amount due such payroll account, shall deposit the same to the credit of said account, charging the appropriate budgetary accounts therewith, and shall draw checks on said account to the order of the officers and employees entitled to payment therefrom. All compensation provided for herein shall be paid from said payroll account, except the compensation of the Borough Attorney provided for in § 52-1 hereof, which shall be paid by checks drawn upon the general account upon receipt of proper bills therefor, and the proper budgetary accounts shall be charged therewith.
The Borough Collector-Treasurer shall present monthly to Borough Council for approval warrants drawn to the order of said payroll account as follows:
In advance for all officers and employees whose compensation is on an annual or weekly basis when such compensation is due and payable prior to the next regular meeting of Borough Council.
In advance for all employees whose compensation is on an hourly or daily basis when the compensation has been approved by the chairman of the appropriate committee and has been certified to the Borough Collector-Treasurer.
The Borough Collector-Treasurer shall draw checks on said payroll account in payment of compensation of temporary employees and in payment of extra compensation for regular employees, employed on an hourly or daily basis, although not authorized in advance at a meeting of the Borough Council, but only when such compensation has been approved by the chairman of the appropriate committee of Borough Council. All such payments shall be included in a payroll to be submitted for ratification at the next regular meeting of Borough Council.
At each regular meeting of the Borough Council, the Borough Collector-Treasurer shall submit for approval or ratification, as the case may be, the necessary payrolls for the several officers and employees, and the Borough Council shall consider said payrolls and approve the same if found to be correct. It shall be the duty of the Borough Collector-Treasurer to correct all errors in the payrolls and make necessary adjustments therein, and he shall see that appropriate record is made thereof.
