In addition to online payment services, there are a number of other ways that City of Lincolnton Utility Customers can pay their bills including:

Pay by Phone

Call 866-288-6192 and follow the instructions to pay by credit or debit card. You must have your billing account number to use this service.

Automatic Bank Drafts

To make paying your utility bill more convenient, you can sign up for the City’s Automatic Bank Drafting Program. As the name implies, once you are accepted into this program, this happens automatically with no further action on your part. 

We transmit your utility balance to your banking institution and they permit it to be drafted from the bank account you have previously specified. You will never have to worry about forgetting your utility bill again.

Please print and complete the Utility Billing Automatic Draft Payment Form (PDF) and deliver it along with your voided check to our office:
