The Finance Department does the financial reporting for the City. Our fiscal year runs from July 1st through June 30th. The City's finance reports are printed after the annual audit is completed each December.
The bills the City of Kenner incurs are processed for payment by Accounts Payable. We do one check cut per week with checks being issued at noon on Fridays. Departments can submit invoices for payment until 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday's. Any invoice received after 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday will be processed for payment the following week. Any vendor seeking information on payments should first refer to the Department that engaged them in service.
The payroll section processes payroll for approximately 680 employees who are paid by direct deposit on a bi-weekly basis. Payroll advices are either emailed or distributed directly to employees. If you have left the City and you need a W2 or a 1099 form, you need to put it in writing to the Director of the Department you worked in.

The City has a paperless office system which eliminates the need for paper storage for all files, this includes the payables, receivables and also payroll. This allows everyone in Finance the ability to look up files on their computers at their own desks, which has increased efficiency to better serve the citizens of Kenner, as well as other departments.

Did you know that if you have a contract for dumpster service and you are paying a solid waste collection fee on your Jefferson Parish water bills but not using garbage service, it is possible to have the garbage charge eliminated from your Jefferson Parish water bill. How? Contact the City of Kenner Finance Department and provide us with a copy of the viable contract for dumpster service and your last water bill showing the charges for garbage. The City will then process your request for exemption from solid waste collection fees. If you do not have a viable contract for dumpster service and simply choose not to use garbage collection, you must still pay the solid waste collection fee.
