LINCOLNTON, N.C. - At the February meeting of the Lincolnton City, the City’s recycling plan took center stage. Assistant City Manager, Rich Haynes presented plans to the Council after several months of study. After each plan was discussed the City Council approved one which is scheduled to start in June.

This recycling plan will bring home pick up of recyclables back to the residents. There will be some changes however.  City residents will have to sign up for the recycling program. Upon signing up the city will deliver a new 96-gallon rollout container for the recyclables. This container, which is much larger than the previous recycling container, will be emptied by the city garbage crew monthly on a Friday. As of now the same recyclable items as in the past will continue to be picked up.

Haynes noted that it would take until June to kick off the new program, as the containers would have to be purchased by the city, and allow sufficient time to inform the residents of the new program and allow for sign-up.

There will be more details on the new program as the target date approaches.

The Council also approved the 2019 schedule for the Alive After Five Concert Series. The 2019 dates are May 30, June 27, July 25, and September 12. Performers are still being finalized.

The 2019 Lincolnton Food, Wine and Brew Festival is scheduled for May 4 on Main Street in downtown Lincolnton.

In Other Business:

The City Recognized Police Officer Mamadou Diallo for earning his Intermediate Law Enforcement Certification.

Approved a contract with Tyler Technologies for upgrades to the Utilities Billing Software.

Approved a request for a license to operate a Billiard Hall at 2667 E. Main St. in the Carolina Shopping Center.

After a closed session, The City Council adjourned.
