Cutting Paystubs Saves Cash for Henderson

Cutting Paystubs Saves Cash for Henderson

Saving money in a budget crisis comes down to items as simple as paystubs for the city of Henderson.

By eliminating the automatic generation of a paystub for employees on direct deposit, the city put $20,000 a year back in its coffers. It’s a drop in bucket when compared to the expected $19 million budget shortfall in 2012, but city officials see the change as one of a larger group that will help ease the pain.

Most city employees receive their paychecks through direct deposit while also receiving a printed paycheck stub. The check stubs were printed by the Finance Department, sorted, delivered to departments and then distributed to each employee.

Employees from the Finance Department researched the possibility of no longer printing the paycheck stubs and making them available online instead.
