From and after the effective date hereof, the following shall be the method by which all Borough officers and employees shall receive the compensations provided for in the Annual Salary Ordinance of the Borough of Emerson:
All Borough officers and employees shall receive compensations as provided in the Annual Salary Ordinance, which shall be payable 26 times per annum.
The Treasurer shall present monthly to the Borough Council for approval warrants drawn to the order of the "Borough of Emerson: Payroll Account."
At the first meeting of the governing body in January of each year, there shall be approved an account to be designated the "Borough of Emerson: Payroll Account"; and from time to time, the Treasurer, upon receipt of a warrant for the amount due such payroll account, shall deposit the same to the credit of the payroll account charging the appropriate budgetary accounts therewith.
The Treasurer shall thereafter draw checks on said payroll account to the employees entitled to payment therefrom.
At each regular meeting of the governing body, the Treasurer shall submit for approval or ratification, as the case may be, the necessary payrolls for the amount due the several officers and employees for compensation. The payroll shall be considered by the governing body in due course and approved if found to be correct.
In case of error or adjustment in the payroll, it shall be the duty of the Treasurer to see that such error or adjustment is properly corrected and an appropriate record made thereof.
Such officers as may be designated by the governing body are hereby authorized to sign warrants drawn in favor of the payroll account upon due notice that the appropriate payrolls have been approved by the proper committee and by the proper certifying authorities, which certifying authorities and committees shall be those designated by resolution.
