GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM)-- The Grand Rapids city comptroller is rolling out a new cost-saving plan to pay city workers.
Tuesday, Donijo De Jonge announced the city's payroll process is going paperless. At $4 a check, De Jonge says the move will save the city $114,000. The city comptroller is also pushing city employees to request electronic W-2 forms, which will save the city additional money.
Under the plan, city employees may be paid through direct deposit or a payroll debit card, which will be reloaded during every pay period. The program will take effect during the final pay period of 2011.
