News Release - Delayed City Payroll Deposits Have Been Delivered

City of Rochester

News Release

(Thursday, July 27, 2023) – Delayed direct deposits for employees of two departments in the City of Rochester have been delivered. Earlier this morning, payroll payments to uniformed employees of the Rochester Fire Department and Rochester Police Department were delayed due to issues at the financial institution. They began being deposited at 11:30 a.m., after an approximately six-hour delay.

Mayor Malik D. Evans, along with City payroll personnel and senior leaders, worked closely with local representatives of Chase Bank to address the issue.

“I am pleased to confirm that all of our employees have received their paychecks today,” said Mayor Evans. “Now that we have the most important priority addressed, we will get to the bottom of the cause of this delay to ensure it doesn’t happen again.”

The City’s payroll files were all approved and received on-time by the financial institution, and direct deposit payments were due to be delivered early this morning.
