Paychecks for 26 Village of Franklinville employees and officials will be written by a payroll firm beginning next week, a move that will cost the village about $1,300 a year.
The Village Board approved the plan Monday.
It is meant to relieve the new village clerk of the task while she is learning the job. The clerk, Patricia Sage, said calculating payroll and writing checks takes an entire day.
The Interpay branch of the Fleet Bank Financial Group based in Rochester will handle the work.
The village can terminate the service within six months under the company's guarantee, said company representative Jason Connor.
In approving the expenditure, which will be taken from about $3,200 in funds remaining in the clerk's budget, trustees agreed to include the item in the draft village budget proposal now being prepared.
In another matter, Ken Mapes, Department of Public Works chief, reported that water and sewer lines were hooked up last week at Olean General Hospital's University Primary Care satellite clinic construction site at 86 S. Main St. The connections had been severed at some time in the past.
In addition, board members discussed setting a target date of March 12 for a public hearing if a local law regarding sexually oriented businesses can be completed in time.
