UBC Uncashed Refund Checks

The City of Fresno Utilities Billing & Collections Division (UB&C) maintains a listing of all customer account refund checks that are at least six months old and have not been cashed.  After three years, and at the end of a calendar year, unclaimed items in excess of $10 must be published in a newspaper of general circulation in the City of Fresno for two consecutive weeks.  A sixty day period follows during which time individuals have the right to contact the City and claim the funds on deposit.  Any funds that are not claimed become the property of the City of Fresno on the date stated in the published notice.  The City Council may then transfer the money into the City’s Utilities Clearing Account in accordance with California Government Code Sections 50050-50053 and 50053 and 50055.  Below is a listing of checks that are at least six months old and have never been cashed and have not yet been transferred to the City’s Utilities Clearing Account.

If you are the legal payee or legally have the authorization to represent the payee listed below and would like to request a replacement check, please contact the Utilities Billing and Collections Division Refund Check desk at 621-6800 or 621-6888 or by email at UBC@fresno.gov and request a Stop Payment Request form.  Once the form is completed, the original received by the Finance UB&C Division and approved by the Controller, a replacement check will be mailed within three weeks.
