How to Sign up for the Utility Pre-authorized Payment Program (PAP)

If funds are not available when the payment is withdrawn, the City of Warman will apply a bank fee of $20.00 to your utility account. You will receive written notification of the bank returned item and be requested to pay the amount, including bank fee. Under no condition will the city continue to withdraw funds unless the invoice and fee are paid in full. After two (2) such dishonoured payments, you will be removed from the PAP Program. Penalties will be applied to accounts taken off the PAP Program that fall into arrears.

How to Read Your Meter
The City of Warman staff will read your meter for billing purposes, but should you wish to monitor your own consumption, here’s how:
- Shine a flashlight over the flashlight icon (located on the register) to turn the LCD display on
- Take a reading at a set time of the day
- Take a 2nd reading at the same time the next day
- The difference between the two readings is your daily water consumption
