Claims Docket

The City Council approves the Claims Docket at the bi-monthly Council Meeting which occurs on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of each month. Therefore, once the docket receives Council approval, check payments are mailed the following day (Wednesday after approval) for invoices received by the 2nd and 4th Monday of the month.

Timely Payments

In an effort to guarantee timely payment for services, we ask that invoices be submitted by the 2nd and 4th Monday of the month to allow for processing and placement on the bi-monthly Claims Docket. 

  • Invoices submitted on the 4th Monday of the previous month will be decided on the Council meeting held on the first Tuesday of the following month
  • Invoices submitted on the 2nd Monday of the month will be decided on the Council Meeting held on the 3rd Tuesday of that month
