At the next meeting of the Lincoln City Council, to be held as a voting session on Tuesday, September 4th, aldermen will be asked to vote to approve returning the billing of residential trash services to Area Disposal. Area Disposal was on hand at this week’s Committee of the Whole to voice they are willing to take the trash billing back, and will return to quarterly billing starting in October if the city votes accordingly. Alderman Tracy Welch said this was the best solution in order to relieve some of the pressure on the City Clerk's Office. City Clerk Peggy Bateman said the September billing will still be for sewerage and trash and will go out five days late, as she will wait to see how the council votes. If the council approves the change, a letter of explanation will go out in the September billing on September 5th. Bateman said because the city would delay the billing, it will also push the payment due date back from the 20th of the month to the 25th ONE TIME ONLY for September.
