City of Sarasota Logo Where Urban amenities meet Small- town living


The Payroll Division is responsible for maintaining the City's payroll records to meet the requirements of federal and state laws; maintaining a payroll accounting system that embodies all of the procedures and methods related to the disbursement of pay to employees in a highly technical environment; and promoting goodwill and a positive working environment by processing the payroll accurately and on time.

The City of Sarasota has approximately 750 employees, who are paid on a bi-weekly basis. The pay period begins on Wednesday, and ends on Tuesday. Paychecks are issued ten days after the ending pay period date.

Employees who wish to change their federal withholding status, should complete a Form W-4, and return the completed form to their departmental payroll preparer.
