All invoices received in the City of Lynwood are properly routed to the department or division responsible for purchase. Upon receiving invoice, the division manager verifies receipt of goods or services before authorizing payment. The invoice is then routed to the Accounting Division for payment. A warrant (check) is prepared along with the Warrant Run for City Council Approval. Once the City Council approves the issuance of all warrants at the City Council meeting, which are held on the first and third Tuesday of each month, then the City Treasurer's signature is obtained. The warrants are then released for pick-up or mailing.
