Ordinance No. 20-010 was approved by the City Council in June 2020, amending Chapter 151 of the Lockport Code of Ordinances for the Registration of Vacant and Foreclosed Properties and Rental Properties. Currently, there are two separate programs, established by Ordinance No. 20-010.
The first program is related to the ownership of vacant and/or foreclosed properties. The other program is regarding rental properties. Both programs are being administered through a company called ProChamps. The Foreclosure/Vacant Property Notices were mailed in July, and the Rental Registration letters are in the process of being mailed during the months of November and December.
