Last night around 8 p.m., employees with the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office noticed a large amount of water in the recreation room of the jail. Volunteered inmates and facility employees have worked through the night to isolate the water line break but the work continues. County inmate labor saved the taxpayer approximately $20,000 in labor and materials.
Residents doing business at the Sheriff’s Office today will experience a shortage of parking and water lines crossing the parking lot. Please DO NOT run over or walk on the water lines. We apologize for the delays, we are working to fix the break.
