The city of Westbrook processes accounts payable on a weekly basis.  Our process is as follows:


1 – Invoices are received by various departments, they review and approve for payment

2 – Approved invoices are sent to city hall for processing, all invoices are due by Wednesday at noon

3 – Accounting Clerk reviews for appropriate accounting, approvals and council orders before processing each invoice

4 – Checks are cut on Friday of each week, the warrant is compiled and is ready to review

5 – Warrant is reviewed by the Treasurer, City Auditor and members of the City Finance Committee

6 – Checks are mailed once all approvals are obtained, generally by the Wednesday of week after the bill was submitted
