Payroll and Personnel

In many cases this is the hardest piece of being an independent district. Payroll can make regular accounting tasks look easy. You have to work with different agencies and comply with human resource laws which can be complicated. If you chose to enter into an interlocal agreement with the city or county then you can ignore most of this chapter. It might be good to review it however. Even if you have contracted with the city or county you are still responsible for personnel issues.

Remember to talk to your staff regularly about what is going on in the transition phase. Staff might be anxious about this process because it deals with their pay and their jobs. Meeting with them frequently and communicating regularly and often about what is happening should help alleviate some of their concerns.
