Payroll direct deposits from the City of Muskogee have been delayed today, according to multiple reports from employees and the city itself.

The direct deposits, which were supposed to post to recipients’ accounts by 8 this morning, did not post on time, according to sources at the bank and the city.

“They will post no later than 5 p.m. today,” the bank representative said. “The city is in the process of changing financial institutions ... this is a one-time occurrence due solely to the transition.”

The bank’s representatives are calling local financial institutions and requesting that they grant immediate credit for City of Muskogee payroll deposits.

CORRECTION: An earlier version of this story (and the headline link) stated that the payroll bounced, which is technically incorrect. The payroll wasn’t deposited when expected.
