Disbursements of city funds can only be made by a negotiable instrument bearing the actual or authorized facsimile signature of the mayor, the city manager and the chief financial officer. No negotiable instrument can be issued without proof by an itemized bill, payroll, time-sheet, voucher or other similar document approved and signed by the responsible city officer who vouches for its correctness and reasonableness. The city manager must note on each contract requiring the payment of money by the city the particular fund out of which it is to be paid. The council can make additional regulations by ordinance for the safekeeping and disbursements of city funds.
