Tips for Paying Online

Please adhere to following steps in order to successfully pay your utility bill online:

  • Clicking “process transaction" will send you to a confirmation screen. If you do not see this ‘confirmation screen’ within 20 seconds, please do not try your transaction again. Instead, call City of Lincolnton Utility Customer Services at 704-736-8980.
  • Log on using the utility account number + billing zip code + On Line Bill Pay Pin [OLBP Pin]. Payment can be made by debit or credit card up to a limit of $ 1,000. 
  • There will be a $2.75 convenience fee for using this payment option. We accept Visa, MasterCard or Discover. There is no charge for viewing account billing and usage history only.
  • Online payments must be received by 5 p.m. on the late fee day or the cut off day in order to avoid the late fee or the cut off fee.  

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.
