CLOVIS (KSMX)- Trash trucks and other city vehicles were parked outside Clovis City Hall this morning as employees sought answers after they weren’t paid today as scheduled. The city has been having software issues for months that have resulted in delayed pay and other pay-related issues.
Workers outside City Hall said they are not on strike, but that they had stopped working to confront City Manager Justin Howalt about the pay issues.
Direct Deposit for City employees are usually deposited in bank accounts at midnight the Thursday of the pay period. However, sated through a press release, there were challenges incorporating pay raise increases employees received effective August 26 into the new payroll software system the City is now utilizing.
“We understand and share in the frustration the adverse effect this has on our employees,” advised City Manager Justin Howalt. “The City of Clovis has a system in place to reimburse employees for any overdraft fees they may have incurred as a result.”
