Accounts Payable

Print

For Accounts Payable questions, please contact Account Technician III Chris Santana at (562) 943-0131, ext. 2326 or csantana@cityoflamirada.org

Responsibilities:

The Accounts Payable Division is in-charge of processing vendor payments, refunds, reimbursements, general billing and other accounting duties as required.

As the payer of City obligations, it is our goal to make payments to vendors in a timely and efficient manner.

Payment:

Goods and services are procured utilizing a purchase order system.  Standard City payment terms are net 30 days.  The City issues checks bi-weekly, with payments mailed on the Thursday after City Council approval.  The City department acquiring the goods and services must initially authorize payment.  The City pays by invoice, not by statement or quotes.

All vendors are required to submit a W/9 form and non-resident form 590 or form 587 prior to payment being issued.

Do vendors need a business license?

Yes, if you are located in, or perform services within, city limits or if you deliver products in company owned vehicles.  Call the Business Licenses Division at (562) 943-0131 for more information or visit the business license section on the City's website.

Invoices

All vendors doing business with the City of La Mirada are required to forward invoices to the following address:
                         City of La Mirada
                         Attn: Accounts Payable
                         13700 La Mirada Boulevard
                         La Mirada, California 90638

Payment Status

To determine if an invoice is approved for payment, it is recommended that the vendor contact the Accounts Payable division.  However, each department has access to look up payment status for vendors as well.

How are the City's emergency purchases handled?

There are times during emergencies when an order must be placed by City personnel after hours or on weekends when the Purchasing Division is normally closed.  Emergency purchases may be made for items which are immediately necessary for the continued operation of the division involved or which are immediately necessary for the preservation of life or property. 

New Vendors:

New vendor information may be submitted to:

                        City of La Mirada
                        Attn: Accounts Payable
                        13700 La Mirada Boulevard
                        La Mirada, California 90638
