Outstanding Warrants (Checks)

Outstanding Check List
The outstanding check list (PDF) contains City of Poway warrants / checks that have been outstanding for more than 6 months. The list is updated on the city’s website on a monthly basis.

Outstanding checks will remain outstanding for approximately 3 years and will then become part of the city’s annual unclaimed funds process. In May of each year, the city, as provided by the Government Code, begins the process of retiring outstanding warrants that are greater than 3 years old. A list of these warrants is advertised in the local paper for 2 consecutive weeks and is then presented to the City Council. If the warrants remain unclaimed for between 45 and 60 days after they are advertised, they then become the property of the city and are transferred to the City’s General Fund.

Unclaimed Monies Form
The Unclaimed Monies Form (PDF) can be submitted to the city if you are the rightful recipient of one of the outstanding warrants / checks on the list.
