The Marilla Town Board has hired Paychex to handle employee issues, including payroll and employee benefits for 22 to 26 town employees.

Under the agreement, Paychex will be paid $1,500 during a three-month implementation period, with an annual cost projected at $6,000. Supervisor Earl Gingerich Jr. noted the change from Bene-Care also includes an update of the town’s employee handbook.

On another issue discussed recently, town officials noted the Veterans Memorial on Bullis Road near Two Rod Road will soon have five, 15-foot flagpoles representing the branches of the military. The town will be working with the Marilla Veterans Club, which purchased the flagpoles. Highway Department employees will install the flagpoles before Memorial Day, officials said.
