The city of Westbrook processes over 200 payroll checks on a weekly basis and the Westbrook School Department processes over 500 payroll checks on a bi-weekly basis. The City has one non-bargaining group which is made up of mangers and department heads, and five bargaining groups: Teamsters General Unit, Teamsters Public Safety Dispatch, Teamsters Fire, Westbrook Police Association, and AFSCME Public Services.
The payroll specialist is responsible for reviewing the payroll for accuracy, processing the payments, making tax payments to federal and state agencies, making retirement contributions on behalf of employees and the city, and reconciling various other benefit disbursements.
Payroll is to be entered by each department by Tuesday at noon and is processed and sent to the bank on the same day.
