Ponce – The mayor of Ponce, Dr. Luis Irizarry Pabón reported on Monday that he was alerted by his Finance and Human Resources advisers when finding a gap that will cause problems for the payment of municipal payroll for the next fortnight that must be issued to municipal employees next Friday, January 15, 2021.
“I have been alerted to a failure in the financial system due to the fact that the last administration made payments for the liquidation of balances in vacation and sick leave of the outgoing directors last Saturday, January 9. This situation puts us on notice and in a state of emergency before the alteration of the jobs issued by Human Resources last Friday, January 8 to be able to comply with the payroll corresponding to January 15, “said Irizarry Pabón in written communication.
The mayor explained that all possible and viable processes will be being carried out so that failures can be mitigated and thus not affect the disbursement of the municipal payroll.
“For us it is a priority that all municipal employees receive their payroll. I want to establish that the delay in the process could be a consequence of the irresponsible action taken by the past administration, putting at risk the available finances of the Municipality of Ponce destined for these purposes ”, he concluded.
