LIVERMORE FALLS — The town will create a mandatory direct-deposit system for all town employees.

The system will go into effect sometime next year.

Selectmen approved the proposal Nov. 18, Town Manager Kristal Flagg said Monday.

It will be a cost savings because the town has to buy checks for the in-house payroll system, and it costs to put a stop payment on a check, she said.

Checks can get lost once in a while and some employees save their checks, she said. It costs $25 to $30 to stop payment on the checks, she said.

Another check can’t be issued unless there is proof of what happened to the check, she said. If someone brought in three-quarters of a check that washed in the laundry, the treasurer could void that check and issue a new one.
