An employee or official's failure or refusal to return such completed Depository Designation Form and/or e-mail address in a timely manner shall constitute grounds for the City Auditor to withhold payment of wages or salary to the affected employee or official until the first full pay period following such affected employee or official’s full compliance with the mandate of this division occurs.

An employee or official’s failure or refusal to timely comply with the mandate of this division shall constitute grounds for the withholding of pay, as provided for above in division (2) of this subsection.
   (c)   Promulgation of Rules and Regulations. The City Auditor shall adopt and disseminate such rules and regulations as the said Auditor, in his or her sole discretion and determination, shall from time to time deem necessary and appropriate to implement and accomplish the efficient operation of such direct deposit and e-mail processes.
