Common Council

The Lockport Common Council is the primary legislative body for the city. Actions and activities are brought before the council after being first considered within one of the body’s committees, each tasked with specific aspects of city operations.

City residents and businesses are represented by their elected ward alderman, with all issues brought to the council weighed for their value in regard to the greater city as a whole. 

The council meets twice each month at 5:30 p.m. on the first and third Wednesdays of the month at Lockport City Hall, and work sessions are held weekly at 4:30 p.m. Wednesdays.
