County moves toward electronic time cards
Leavenworth County is switching to a new electronic time sheet system.
On Monday, the Board of County Commissioners unanimously voted to have Heather Morgan, county administrator, negotiate a contract with Pro Pay.
The board made the decision based on the recommendation of a technology committee that was formed to find a solution to the county’s paper time sheets. Committee members said the electronic time sheets and payroll would save department heads and the county’s human resources department substantial money in time and in paper cost.
The software will allow county employees to access their payroll documentation, past pay stubs, insurance information and direct deposit information.
The board also moved that all pay will be done through direct deposit and there will be no more paper pay stubs. Special exemptions will be granted to certain employees and the county will help any employee who would like help opening a bank account.
The program will cost approximately $20,000 a year for the county’s 420 employees.
