There has been some confusion concerning the budgeted pay periods for the non-hourly employees and elected officials of Robertson County. In most years there are 26 paydays or pay periods, but once every 10 or 11 years, it happens, 27 pay periods. This is not abnormal, it happens for all Texas counties and here is why. Every 10 or 11th year, the accounting has to add an extra pay period to catch up to the budget. This is generated by a leap year and the fact that the budget is set in September. Basically, all entities that set a budget in September annually face the additional pay period.
