The Accounting Technician is responsible for processing all payments to vendors for goods and services provided to the City of Newnan. All vendors doing business with the City are required to complete a W-9 Form at least bi-annually, or prior to issuance of purchase orders or invoice processing. View the W-9 Online form. The vendor W-9 form can be submitted electronically by emailing the Accounts Technician. You may also call Accounts Payable for questions pertaining to invoices or accounts payable in general. Please note that payments may be held until the W-9 form is received by the City if we do not have a current W-9 on file for your company.
