Services and Rates

Lincoln provides water, sewer, and garbage services to all residents within the incorporated City limits. The services are billed on a monthly basis.

The charges for all three services are combined on one bill, which is mailed between the eighth and the twelfth of each month. Utility accounts are considered delinquent if not paid within thirty days after the due date per the City's Ordinance No. 888B, Section 13.04.230 and a ten percent penalty for all fees or charges would be imposed at that time.
